Surrogates Review

  • Excerpt: It is the idea of Surrogates that is immediately off-putting. In the future, robotics have advanced so everyone can utilize a mechanical double of themselves in day-to-day life. Instead of going to work, you send your surrogate, utilizing your brain to control it. The futuristic marketing in the background of this story preaches safety as the benefit, which after years of brain-washing seems marginally plausible. However, it is hard to see the benefit.

Surrogates (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Make no mistake. Mostow and the original writers have a lot to say here. There is a political, or at least social, message to be found in the film. What I like, however, is that you’re given the freedom to draw your own conclusions. Like Star Trek before it, Surrogates proves that you can have a social message without beating your audience over the head with it. There’s room for a sequel here, to be sure. There’s more to this message.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'Surrogates' offers just enough intrigue (and a genuinely gonzo performance by Ving Rhames) to give it a rental recommendation. The video is pretty good for a film that isn't all that striking visually, it's got a really great audio track, and a few extras that aren't all that interesting. Those looking for the bold science fiction fun of previous Bruce Willis outings like '12 Monkeys' or 'The Fifth Element' will be disappointed.

Surrogates Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Movie The commercials didn't do the best job of conveying the story of Surrogates , so here goes: A few years from now, the technology will exist for everyday folks to operate sophisticated humanoid surrogates, robots with virtual senses that can essentially live our entire lives for us outside the home.

  • Excerpt: Sometimes there's nothing better than an exciting sci-fi premise, a take on our future that resonates nicely with the present and doesn't feel like a thin variation on what we've seen before. But there's nothing worse than seeing that premise squandered, which is exactly the fate of Surrogates , a movie that is handed a fascinating concept and slaps onto it a generic conspiracy plot that's as boring as it is impossible to follow.

  • Summary: Like the titular avatars in this graphic novel adaptation, "Surrogates" is a rote whodunit masquerading as a techno-thriller.

AV Club
25 September 2009
  • Excerpt: In the exposition-packed opening of Surrogates , we quickly learn a lot about the near future, a familiar-looking place that’s been transformed by the invention of robot surrogates. While almost everyone on Earth stays safe at home, their surrogates (or “surries”) go to work, ride subway cars with built-in charge ports, fuck with abandon, then go home to human controllers who have spent the day immobile.

  • Conclusion: There’s enough here to tickle the brain cells, and just enough to satisfy the eyes, but the whole thing is so slight and so low-key that it borders on the redundant. If you can somehow find a surrogate to go watch it, by all means do so.
