Replicas (2019) --- "Some Humans Are Unstoppable."
Directed by Jeffery Nachmanoff (Homeland, Meet Jane) and written by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen, Peppermint) and Stephen Hamel (Siberia, Henry’s Crime), Replicas (2019) is a sci-fi drama about a daring Neuro-scientist who, after losing his family in a freak car accident, will stop at nothing to bring his family back, even if it means going against the bio-lab he works for and possibly going to jail.
It is the story about a great loss that leads to an extreme measure of scientific experimentation. The story is multi-dimensional as it brings to light some interesting questions about cloning and the transference of the human consciousness into a computer or second brain. There are also some intense moments throughout, especially since it could have easily introduced a horror aspect to the storyline. Fortunately, that is not the case. There were many different types of scientific topics introduced to the story, mostly they were entertaining but their value was fake. All in all, despite any issues, the story is great and entertaining especially if you are a fan of pretty much all kinds of sci-fi films.
The cast performances were great. I have always been a fan of Keanu Reeves (Siberia, 47 Ronin, John Wick series) and this film was no exception. The rest of the characters were great but since Reeves takes over most of the screen time the other characters were easily forgettable.
Overall, Replicas (2019) is an entertaining B-rated sci-fi film about a great loss that leads to an extreme measure of scientific experimentation. If you’re a fan of all kinds of sci-fi films, especially the cheesy ones made by the Sy-Fy channel then you are sure to love this one. The cast is great, the CGI is good, and story accomplishes what it set out to do. I recommend this film.
