Another must-see film this year is The Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis as Agent Greer, a FBI agent who investigates the murder of others’ surrogates. This film is a 2009 science fiction movie directed by Jonathan Mostow, director of Terminator: Rise of the Machines and U-571. Everybody can’t wait for the release of it after watching its terrific trailer.
The concept of this film is really fascinating. This movie was based on the comic book series by Robert Venditti. Geez, this guy is a genius! I love how he imagined the future of the world relying to robots to protect the human beings.
Here’s a synopsis from Wikipedia:
The year 2017 is a future in which humans live in near-total isolation, never leaving the safety and comfort of their homes, and only communicating with their fellow man through remotely-controlled robotic bodies that serve as “surrogates”, designed as better-looking versions of their human operators. Because people are safe all the time, and damage done to a surrogate is not even felt by its owner, it is a peaceful world free from fear, pain, and crime. Agent Greer (Willis) is an FBI agent who enlists the aid of his own surrogate to investigate the first murder in years, of the genius college student who invented the surrogates. The case grows more complicated, however, when several humans are murdered as their surrogates are destroyed. The withdrawn detective discovers that in order to actually catch the killer he will have to physically venture outside the safety of his home for the first time in many years, and enlists the aid of another agent in tracking his target down
