I was looking for something interesting and different to watch on one of our movie nights where it was my pick. I came across Replicas starring Keanu Reeves. He plays a scientist trying to map the human brain after death and to place it into a synthetic body. He keeps failing at this and his boss is a bit unhappy since the financial donors are getting nervous. Then his family dies on him in an accident that was his fault.

What is a scientist to do? He grows clone bodies of most of his family, and works on a way to transfer their minds to the new bodies. He never reports that his family died so he must take control of all of their devices and keep their lives going until he can bring them back in the clone bodies. He also must show up to work to keep up appearances. Somehow he has time to do all of these things.

The issues families will have with Replicas are blood, violence, nudity, lack of attire, enticement to lust, bad language, sexual content, and more. The moral and ethical issues that are in Replicas are interesting indeed. If you could grow a new body and map the brain then you could become immortal. SPOILER ALERT! The ending of Replicas touches upon how that would make people wealthy.

So much of Replicas makes no sense to me. He somehow gets away with his family being gone for close to three weeks. No one questions it. No one notices. He even goes longer without one of his kids. Again no one reports them missing. SPOILER ALERT! They can steal all of this gear from their employer because the employer is actually working for other people that want military applications. His wife was against the morals and ethics of his work but is okay with it when it brings her back to life.

Too much of Replicas is totally predictable. Trying to leave on the boat at night was so predictable that it irritated me. The same goes for what the scientist does to save his family back at the lab. Some actors and actresses had passion for their parts and others did not. It felt weird that one person is all invested and the other seems half there. Replicas has too much of a disconnect.
