Recently watched the movie Replicas, starring Keanu Reeves. The plot centers around how a scientist (Reeves) loses his family in a car accident (Reeves is the driver), and he'll stop at nothing to ''bring them back.'' As clones of course. You will need to really tap into suspension of disbelief for this film, but it started off well-intentioned. The thing with Keanu Reeves movies - they're either laughably bad or amazingly great. This was ...laughably bad. I really wanted to enjoy it, but when high speed chases start, the rest of the movie is downhill from there. It was kind of like Frankenstein meets Sophie's Choice...but, it really could have been great. I'm all for far-fetched sci-fi dramas, but the problem with this film, it felt like it was trying to manufacture emotion, when all the writers needed to do was hook the audience in with a bit more to go on. You just felt literally nothing for the family when they all die...that sounds vapid I know, but ...it's the writers' job to make me feel something. If they fail at that, it's on them. Plot holes all over the place, cringe acting, and the ''science'' wasn't explained well. It jumped around too much, and just when you thought they'd explore the science aspect a bit more, the scene would flit somewhere unrelated. That's it, the film wasn't relatable. Unlike The Shape of Water (which was by far one of my FAVORITE sci-fi movies), it lacked depth, warmth, and character. And a competent writing staff, oof! Sometimes, sci-fi writers think that they can get away with just about anything, simply because they're in the sci-fi genre. Well, they still need to connect the dots somewhat, for the viewer. With this movie, it was quite rushed, boring, and inevitably comical. Sci-fi movies need to rest on more than just sci-fi, for me personally. And leave out high speed car chases, please. Those are so utterly stupid, I can't. I won't spoil the ending...because I didn't see it. lol (I just couldn't go on) It was one of those movies where you're like...who came up with this, and why did they go through with it? At least in that fashion, anyway. If you've watched this movie, let me know your thoughts. I'm curious if I'm being too harsh.
