The 6th Day | 2000 | PG-13 | - 5.7.5

In this futuristic thriller, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a loving family man who gets cloned and then has to find and destroy the evil scientist who did it. Also with Tony Goldwyn, Robert Duvall, Michael Rapaport, Michael Rooker, Sarah Wynter, Wendy Crewson and Rodney Rowland. [2:04]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A couple of instances of sexual innuendo and some kissing. We see a man on top of a woman in bed kissing her; he's clothed and she's in a nightgown. A man puts his hand on a woman's clothed buttocks and kisses her. A man and woman have implied sex in the back of a car: they talk about having sex, we see the woman lying on the man while they kiss, and then we see the man leave the car and zip up his pants. One man's clone lies on top of him and there's a reference to the two of them having sex with each other (the man having sex with himself).We see a naked woman's bare shoulders, the side of her breast and her bare buttocks; also, we see the side of a naked man (his genitals are not visible). We see the side of a simulated woman's breast; we also hear (but don't see) her unzipping a man's pants. Several times we see a number of naked, embryonic pre-cloned humans (they look like blow-up dolls in transparent sacks; their genitals aren't visible).

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Many instances of threatening with guns and many gun shots fired, killing and injuring a number of people: a person is shot in the neck (a large, dark purple wound is visible); another is shot in the back (the bullet goes through the person's body, exiting through the front and leaving a big cavity in the chest); a person is shot in the back and falls down steps, knocking his head on the ground; two others are shot in the leg (one person's leg becomes detached below the knee); two people are shot in the head (no blood is visible), another is shot in the chest (a wound is visible); a person's fingers are shot off; a person commits suicide with a gun shot in the head; and a man has an open wound on his stomach after being shot. A person with a tube around her neck is choked to death when someone hangs on her feet, a person chokes another and breaks his neck, a person falls several feet through a glass ceiling and dies, a football player is tackled and his neck is snapped (a man sends him into cardiac arrest while they're in an ambulance); and a person dies of cystic fibrosis. A life-like doll is shot in the head; she briefly catches fire and then her head is tossed out of a car window. A pet dog is put to sleep off screen. Someone is zapped with a stun gun, a person pistol whips another, a man is kicked in the groin, and a man is hit in the genitals by an opening door. Someone dangles on a cliff edge and then falls into the sea, two people dangle from a flying helicopter and almost crash into a skyscraper, a man jumps through a window, a man breaks a glass window with his elbow, two people are kidnapped, a young girl is almost attacked by growling dogs, and a person is knocked down when an aquarium window breaks and water gushes throughout a building. Several fiery explosions: a car is shot, helicopter is shot and crashes to the ground, and a building explodes. A few chase scenes involving car wrecks: one car smashes into another; a car crashes into a fence and runs through a yard; a car drives through a house; a car crashes into another, causing a man to fly out of the window and then get run over by another car (we see his bruised, lifeless face); a car drives off a cliff and into the sea; and a car drives off a ramp and into another car. We see two corpses, one with a scarred face and one with an open, dried neck wound. A woman pierces her own ear and blood trickles out, a person's forehead and nose are bloody, a person's nose bleeds, and blood oozes out of someone's mouth several times.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
