Arnold hasn’t been at his best recently, with his last film, “End of Days”, it wasn’t really his best. Now with the “6th Day” we get a better Arnold film and a good action film as well.

Arnold plays, Adam Gibson, a helicopter pilot in the near future, who gets cloned illegally by an evil corporation. Adam must stop and run from the cloning corporation, before they kill him.

While this film does have a lot of action, and people running around dodging bullets to survive, it still is a pretty enjoyable action movie. There are also so many twists in this movie that the characters have to stop and explain everything, just so the audience can be caught up. Yes, we may have seen some of these action sequences before, but it’s still a great action movie.

This movie may also make you think of our own technology and our cloning possibilities, as this film as some reality to it. Yes, a Arnold film with reality.

I found this to be much, much better than “End of Days” and in the same fun, action film type as “Total Recall”. I think a lot of people saw “End of Days” and hated it, and were scared off by this one.

In Closing- I think Arnold fans shouldn’t miss this one, as it was a great ride in the theater. So give it a chance, you might actually have a good time.
