First slide

After his wife (Alice Eve) and children (Emily Alyn Lind, Emjay Anthony and Aria Lyric Leabu) are killed in a car accident, a scientist (excruciatingly earnest Keanu Reeves) who has been experimenting with injecting human consciousness into robots secretly teams with a colleague (Thomas Middleditch) who specializes in cloning to create copies of the deceased using their DNA and their mental data. He runs into a number of stumbling blocks, including the dilemma of only having the capacity to replicate two of his three kids and the pressure exerted on him by his hard-driving boss (John Ortiz) to devote his attention to his so-far unsuccessful work or face having the multi-million-dollar project defunded. Emotions are shallow and moral themes underdeveloped in director Jeffrey Nachmanoff’s dull sci-fi misfire.

Watch out for: Brief violence with little gore, obscured rear and partial nudity, a few uses of profanity, at least one milder oath, much crude language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: PG-13
