Surrogates | Ratings & Reviews

"Mostow's smart speculative suspenser imagines a time when people can live through ideal versions of themselves while they sit wired up at home."

VarietyVariety

"A curious blend of Minority Report, The Island and The Stepford Wives, Surrogates feels like a film with very little purpose. Slickly made, but lifeless. Bit like the eponymous clones then. Call us for the sequel though… Seriously."

Total FilmTotal Film

"In this kind of industrial entertainment, particularly one that seems to be missing some connective narrative tissue, it’s hard to know if the writers or the director can be credited or blamed for what’s left on screen."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Surrogates is entertaining and ingenious, but it settles too soon for formula."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"The concept is great – but that’s pretty much all this film has going for it."

NewshubNewshub

"An interesting idea, but unfortunately, the film's narrative and emotional engine operate as mechanically as the titular, dead-eyed glamazoids."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A mechanical sci-fi'er absent of logic or emotions. It functions as an expensive place-filler on the Disney release schedule and, as such, will be welcomed by only the least discriminating thriller fans."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"There’s enough here to tickle the brain cells, and just enough to satisfy the eyes, but the whole thing is so slight and so low-key that it borders on the redundant. If you can somehow find a surrogate to go watch it, by all means do so."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"While the echoes with our present day are disturbingly believable, the film is also somewhat predictable."
