      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.

      Robert Cashill Newsweek The studios should enact their own '6th Day Law' prohibiting the carbon-copy duplication of elements from scenario to scenario. Rated: 2/4 Jun 18, 2008 Full Review Steven D. Greydanus Decent Films A watchable action vehicle with some thoughtful futuristic touches and an attempt to grapple with larger issues. Rated: B- May 8, 2002 Full Review Globe and Mail Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 22, 2002 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins While it understandably sidesteps truly thought-provoking aspects of cloning in favor of explosions and fistfights and one-liners, it mostly errs in the arena of editing. Rated: 4/10 Sep 25, 2020 Full Review John A.

      Ivan S Probably too hard to understand for many. Good action and noir enough to scare basic audience Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Dan R 2000's 'The Sixth Day' saw Arnold Schwarzenegger return for another sci-fi romp. SYNOPSIS: 'A man meets a clone of himself and stumbles into a grand conspiracy about clones taking over the world.' Surprisingly this is actually a decent Schwarzenegger film and probably in his upper echelon of movies. Clearly, it's not another 'The Terminator' film but the premise is really interesting, and quite disturbing. The film ticks a lot of boxes in terms of sci-fi films but it is very formulaic, especially for Arnie. He gets all of his lines in as you'd totally expect. It's a watchable action sci-fi with some thoughtful futuristic touches and as mentioned, makes a stab at grappling with larger, more important, issues. A solid film. 6/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Joshua S I'll never fully understand why this film doesn't get the love it deserves, in a time where original films not based on sequels or books or ancient IP's or bloody comic books!!! I crave movies like this, it's not an Oscar winner but it definitely what movies should be… entertaining!!! (Also, if anyone says "it's based on the bible, I'm coming after ya) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Farah R It's weird, even for an oldie. Arnold Schwarzenegger plays it too close to home in this sci-fi movie that sticks too closely to its genre's formula and ends up being predictable many times. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review R B It's a good dystopian film. Totally believable now that something like this could actually happen. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/07/23 Full Review Jack O OK, so I have heard of this one so I thought I was gonna check it out and I enjoyed it but not one of the best films I've seen but it does has some awesome action but not on the high note. Let me explain: On the 6th day, God created man (as you can tell by the tagline). "God created man in His own image, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day." Cloning humans and animals are acceptable. However, cloning is illegal and forbidden now. Adam Gibson played by Arnold Schwarzenegger is going on a skiing trip with his friend, Hank played by Michael Rapaport, then he goes to the "RePet" store not only to get Oliver cloned 'cause he died but to get a SimPal doll named Cindy for her daughter. When Adam got home, he discovers that not only Oliver was cloned but much worse, Adam himself was cloned and he's with his family. Four Replacement Technologies security agents arrive to kill him but he escapes, stole his cadillac and the chase is on. When those bad guys are dead they get cloned and if they see him with his family, they'll be killed. So now it's up to Adam to clear his name, protect his family and defeat the cloning baddies. Okay, okay, okay, so I have to get to the point where I share my opinion on The 6th Day. This is truly a generic, generic action film but it is enjoyable for the most part. The concept of this is pure genius and intriguing but disturbing, no way! But it was poorly executed by it's cheesiness and bad acting. Don't get me wrong, what's really surprising is that two Arnold Schwarzenegger's met together and now they team up to stop the cloning. I saw the commercials of "RePet" from the Special Features. Two of them to be exact. I think the reason for this is because they wanted to be in the film for the "RePet" store scene. I will say for one thing that Tony Goldwyn was such a letdown in this film. Really hated his character, didn't really represent anything and overall his character is quite boring and what I found out is that he's been dead for years and now he's being cloned. This would've been an awesome film if it weren't for the poor acting from both especially from Arnold Schwarzenegger and the clone and the cheesy dialogue but it does have some thought-provoking ideas with the illegal cloning. Gee, I wish smoking can be illegal so that people don't get cancer. Don't expect too much from this movie, it wasn't anything special but it was enjoyable for what it is. I don't hate it, I liked it for what it was, it was an okay film. Not one of Arnold's best and not as good as one of his previous films in the past.
