A very entertaining TV movie
23 March 2002 | by bsincSee all my reviews

This movie was a nice surprise. It had an above average story (for a TV movie) that really captivated and entertained me for that hour and 1/2. The cloning thing was really interesting, not because of its credibility or believability (because there isn't a lot of that), but because it left me wondering if something like this could (or already has) really happen(ed). The thought of having a clone of yourself and meeting him/her someday is truly mind boggling and fascinating. The acting is good, and I thought the leading actor, C. Thomas Howwel did a great job. He's one of those actors who's face you remember distinctly although seeing him only once.

Sure, the story could have been from another movie and the ending is predictable(it's similar to the one in "The Assignment", except the ending there is, in my opinion, opened to the viewers imagination), but hey, I enjoyed it. 7/10
