Print this article "Surrogates" takes place in the year 2017 and imagines a future in which humans live vicariously through remotely-controlled life-like robots, called surrogates, that are more attractive and active versions of themselves.
People rarely leave their own homes and seem to live in a state of self-imposed isolation.
In the film, Willis plays the mustachioed FBI agent Tom Greer, who conducts his business through his own surrogate. There is very little crime in the virtual-reality, until college student Jarod Canter is murdered. Greer takes on the case and begins investigating in this strange new world.
James Cromwell, who has recently appeared in "Becoming Jane" and "Spider-Man 3," also stars in the film as Dr Lionel Canter, the man who invented the surrogates.
Fans of other science fiction films that explore the concept of identity, like "The Matrix" and "12 Monkeys," will enjoy "Surrogates," as will moviegoers who enjoyed James Cameron's latest blockbuster, "Avatar."
The intriguing film will be released on DVD January 26.
