I can not criticize the retorts in ambition. A perfect family (scientific father, mother doctor), a perfect location (Puerto Rico), a perfect friend (who will bury the bodies for you) and some perfect science (brain mapping, cloning, induction of coma, creation of robots, you name it ). I could also have had a perfect story: explore can you recreate a life, or can you erase a life by killing any memory of it?
But no. Director Nachmanoff, with more television credits in his name than on the big screen, wastes most of his time filming a futuristic science that makes Reeves move his hands a lot like a virtual map of a seemingly emergent brain when wearing a hat . Reeves is the scientist Will Foster, who in an installation called Bionyne is trying to map the biological brains of dead people into synthetic bodies (robots); the dead people are soldiers. While repeatedly failing, wife Mona (Eve) tells Will that it is wrong to think that one can bring back the dead.
There are two tracks right there, for people to observe closely.
The film continues with its elaborate attempts to make this laugh about science when all you want is to see what happens the next morning, when all those experiments are finished and cleaned up. And he also wonders how much Foster will impose on his friend, who is also his colleague in the laboratory (Middleditch), through his increasingly implausible and unbelieving violations of logic, morals and ethics.
More worryingly, even while they are discussing it, none of those concerns stops anyone in Replicas.
