More Info:
  • Keith Uhlich

    What follows is pulp made near-profound through director Jonathan Mostow’s sure-handed guidance.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Among cheesy sci-fi movies meant to make you think, I'll take Surrogates over "District 9." Both are highly derivative, but in the course of recombining the basic chromosomes of "Blade Runner," "The Matrix" and especially "I, Robot," Surrogates nudges the robo-thriller in an interesting direction.

    New York Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This represesents the smartest high-budget, high-profile science fiction film to have come along in quite some time.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    There's fun robot stuff, some good philosophical ideas, and a brief, nutty Willis-Ving Rhames reunion 15 years after "Pulp Fiction."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Surrogates stays afloat by not taking itself too seriously, but also by recognizing that a movie about robots shouldn't look as if it were made by one. Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Mostow's smart speculative suspenser imagines a time when people can live through ideal versions of themselves while they sit wired up at home.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Surrogates is entertaining and ingenious, but it settles too soon for formula.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Willis is fine, both as his blond action figure (Zack Morris hair) and actual self, in trusty bruised palooka mode. Mostow does good meat-and-potatoes genre work, coherent even when reckless.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Half a howler but not nearly funny enough.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A reasonably watchable sci-fi B movie, a case of a good director and some intriguing ideas struggling to overcome formula plotting, limp dialogue, and a serious case of the sillies.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The questions the movie raises have less to do with science than movie execution: Do the actors sound so robotic because they are playing robots well or humans badly? And did a machine write this dialogue? If so, could we please apply for an upgrade?

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Relentlessly plods from one dour moment to the next, coming to life only in a late-film car chase that takes the possibilities of a world filled with robots to an absurd extreme.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    A mechanical sci-fi'er absent of logic or emotions. It functions as an expensive place-filler on the Disney release schedule and, as such, will be welcomed by only the least discriminating thriller fans.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    An interesting idea, but unfortunately, the film's narrative and emotional engine operate as mechanically as the titular, dead-eyed glamazoids.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    In this kind of industrial entertainment, particularly one that seems to be missing some connective narrative tissue, it’s hard to know if the writers or the director can be credited or blamed for what’s left on screen.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    An ambitious but sub-ordinary SF epic in which, as so often, Willis is better than his material.

    Time Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    Surrogates, which borrows tone and content freely from "I, Robot," is all windup and no pitch.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    Surrogates takes an interesting idea -- the triumph of technological convenience over grimy, workaday life -- and buries it under clumsy exposition, unconvincing action sequences and a by-the-numbers conspiracy plot.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The premise for this sci-fi actioner makes sense for about four seconds, after which you begin to wonder why everyone on the planet would willingly become a shut-in.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The filmmakers were too busy throwing together potential blockbuster material to notice all the loose ends and gaping holes in logic. Which may, ultimately, explain why Willis looks so confused throughout. Maybe he, too, is straining to locate some intelligence amid all the machinery.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Surrogates' morality is less Asimov than asinine, although it's bizarrely reassuring, in a nihilistic sort of way, to believe that in the future, when the world is ready to play The Sims for real (so to speak), our avatars are all going to look like generic porn stars with shitty airbrush jobs.
