4.5 Virtual Life vs Real Life? Kevin1075 | 12/03/2012 | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754) An effective and certainly action filled sci-fi tale from the director and writers of 'Terminator 3'.In the future, humans live via robotic surrogates which go out into the world for them. When two surrogates are destroyed and their connected operators also die - which should be impossible thanks to failsafes - it falls to two FBI agents (Bruce Willis and Rahda Mitchell) to investigate what seems to be the impossible. In the process, discovering a much greater conspiracy than they first thought.On the downside the film is pretty derivative in places (and strongly reminded me of 'I, Robot' at times, not helped by the presence of James Cromwell as the inventor of the robotic technology at the heart of the film) and the conspiracy is a little obvious, but overall there are enough interestings thoughts and questions hinted at and also more directly covered by the central idea of what might happen if we all could live a virtual life. The performances by Willis and Mitchell (and also Rosamund Pike as Willis' wife) also work well and the action sequences are well choreographed.And, at 85 minutes long - it's totally easy to watch!
