Director Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, Noriega) creates a world of the very near future in which cattle, fish, and even the family pet can be cloned. But cloning humans is illegal - that is until family man Adam Gibson (Arnold Schwarzenegger) comes home from work one day to find a clone has replaced him. Taken from his family and plunged into a sinister world he doesn't understand, Gibson must not only save himself from the assassins who must destroy him to protect their secret, but uncover who and what is behind the horrible things happening to him. THE SIXTH DAY is the story of Gibson's struggle to reclaim his life and his family.

Critics Consensus: This offering from Arnold Schwarzenegger contains an intriguing, disturbing premise, but the film's execution is too routine and formulaic to make good use of it.

A decent movie for teens, if they can endure it.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that a lifelike doll gets shot and has her head blown off during a tense chase sequence. Adam's wife is rather thanklessly portrayed as an unquestioning spouse. Characters of color are limited to (evil) security guards, many of which are killed. One use of "f--k." Several innocent characters are blown away; one religious Adventist avenges an infraction of God's law by killing the offenders (along with innocent folks). Smoking of cigars. Adam watches his wife get romantic with his clone. Hank has a holographic girlfriend who wears skimpy clothing and wants sex all the time; we only see her unzipping his fly. Excessive violence -- mainly injuries and deaths from lasergun fire. One man is killed by a speeding car and has his neck broken. A pro football player suffers a broken spine after being tackled. A little girl is threatened by Dobermans. Lots of fisticuffs, some involving a woman.
