Anybody else looking forward to seeing this?
I thought I remember seeing this preview a while back. Anyone know why it was shelved?
It's not looking too good on rottentomatoes.
My wife is a biologist, and is very concerned about what'll happen to funding for cloning once this movie comes out. This movie has absolutely nothing to do with actual real sciene, but it'll probably scare a bunch of people into writing to their congressmen.
So whats the deal. Does the kid become evil or something?
I think he becomes the evil character in a bad movie!
To be honest, I think this would have been a better idea if the whole supernatural aspect (I'm gathering that there is one from the advertisements) was removed. A story about a family whose son dies and then is cloned to be replaced would be extremely interesting. What happens when he finds out? How do they live their lives afterwards? Would the kid feel bad about being a replacement or happy that they still love him? What would others think about these people?
Him getting the other kid's memories sounds like a cheesy plot device and one that I think is too ludicrous.
i, too, had concerns after the movie was shelved. this can never be a good sign. i predict it will suck.
The kid who plays the..well,kid is from my town so I will go see it for that reason.
I went to see my usual Friday afternoon post-work movie today. Wanted to see Mean Girls but I got held up & missed the start, so went to this one instead.
Just a depressingly mundane, dumb, boring flick. How did DeNiro get caught up in this??
Stay away. You have been warned.
Craig nailed it.
It's an amazingly bad movie.
I thought Kinnear did a good job and Nick Hamm clearly has a slick directorial touch... but Holy Crap what a bad flick.
Yes, truly, truly awful.
Bad acting, cliched story....
After about half an hour into it, I was able to successfully guess every scene that remained in the movie. It was just, bad.
They pulled the same stunt as they did with DAWN OF THE DEAD and put ten minutes of this on the internet. What they forgot was that the DOTD people put ten GOOD minutes up.
What I saw of GODSEND was dull and stupid and bad and put me off going. And that was probably the best ten minutes.
Just knowing that DeNiro was in this sent off warning bells that this could be a bad film.
20 years ago, that statement would have been unthinkable.
I saw this on a date the other night because my date wanted to see it. I feared the worst and my bad feelings were realized. A bad, bad movie. The worst movie I've seen in the theater since Dreamcatcher. Of course, we were two of about four people in the show, so that might say something about it. As for losing funding because of this movie, I don't think you'll have anything to worry about.
