Surrogates – Worth Watching?

I’ll be honest here, this is a quick post to say that I haven’t missed a day blogging.  We’ve been spending a great weekend with family and friends, which takes precedence to blogging.  However, I did get to see Surrogates tonight.  If you haven’t seen it and would like to, skip this blog post because there may be spoilers (I’ll try not to ruin it though).

Basically the movie started off well, but pretty much fell apart half way through.  The premise seemed somewhat believable (in a Sci-Fi kind of way), but as the movie progressed, the more it just came off the rails.  What made the movie most frustrating was that we had a pretty good idea what was going on (in terms of the conspiracy and who the villains were shaping up to be), but Bruce Willis’ character hadn’t figured that out – which simply got annoying.

To top it off, they developed an unnecessary back-story between Willis and his wife in the movie.  There was potential with his personal tragedy, but they never developed that anywhere.

Finally to make things worse, they didn’t wrap up any of their loose ends.  We were led to believe that Bruce Willis was able to cause a catastrophic event, yet go home completely unscathed – especially legally.

Did you see the movie?  What did you think?
