A Clone Is Born

Schwarzenegger reproduces the best of all his movies with a conceptual twist in The 6th Day

It's easy to complain that there's just no way Schwarzenegger could come across as a regular Joe, but look again; his comedy movies have given him a surprisingly jocular edge. (Thank goodness the movie didn't have to be Ben Affleckted with the narrow scope of some casting directors.) While this role is a far cry from the badly dubbed debut of "Arnold Strong" in Hercules in New York 30 years ago, it is, in its way, equally charming.

Is it really Arnold? Talia (Sarah Wynter) and Robert Marshall (Michael Rooker) harass Adam (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who must deal with his own clone in The 6th Day.

Is it really Arnold? Talia (Sarah Wynter) and Robert Marshall (Michael Rooker) harass Adam (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who must deal with his own clone in The 6th Day.

The sole complaint is that, rather than provoking the tears of a clone, The 6th Day takes the easy way out of the double-hero issue, which is strangely limp-wristed, considering that this is the director who brought us Under Fire. Otherwise, as we await a sequel to Total Recall, it's a pleasure to know that a restful 7th day with Arnold could hold much promise.
