Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    A mostly standard-issue latter-day Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner spiked with a creepily plausible cloning angle.

  • 50

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Plays like something picked up at a vintage store; you can see all the greasy fingerprints from those who have handled it before.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    From its standard-issue action to its halfhearted dialogue and acting, that's one situation even two Schwarzeneggers aren't enough to solve.
