The Sixth Day (2000)

Ah, I remember the days of Schwarzenegger and Stallone. A time where they ruled the box-office with such hits like “Terminator”, “Rocky”, and “Terminator 2”. Unfortunately, those days are all over, and audiences have become somewhat tired. That’s where this stinker comes in. Wow, this is below the quality of any other Schwarzenegger movie I’ve seen before. It sickens me. First, we’ll start with the plot. This plot is not entirely original, and it leaves a lot of room for the people in this movie to secretly debate on the whether the concept of cloning is playing god or just another step in technology. I found it just plain dull. I didn’t care about anyone in here.

Especially, Schwarzenegger who hams it up very much in an attempt at being dramatic. The cast is comprised of big stars like Tony Goldwyn, Robert Duvall, and Michael Rappaport. Why they would even be in this stinker is a riddle to me. Robert Duvall’s role in this movie is inadequate and he gets outshined by the unbelievable trash in this flick. The setting is bleak and very generic, and we never really give much of a rats butt to take the time to appreciate it. The dialogue is decrepit and consists of mostly bad one- liners and Arnold becomes a tool of the government by making an attempt to throw in some propaganda on violence in the media. At one point while attempting to run away, they get caught by some guards.

So he pushes his daughter and wife to the side and points the gun. That’s when he says, “Let’s keep this nice and clean, I don’t want my daughter to see any violence, she gets enough of that from the media.” Puh-lease. That line was so obvious and so transparent that it made me cringe in my seat. He also makes an attempt at propaganda by the weapons in this movie. There’s barely any violence in this, and instead of the people carrying guns, they carry around laser guns that when shot at someone makes a clean clear hole through their body. God, what a pushover. This is a stinker, and I suggest you don’t waste your money on this one. Sure, there are some surprises in this, but it’s not worth the time.
