Radha Mitchell = Bridget Moynahan

By Chase Kahn

Why is it that every trailer, television spot or screen I see for Jonathan Mostow's Surrogates (Buena Vista, 09.25.09) looks like I'm viewing the film through some sort of glass kaleidoscope in a neon-lit dive joint. Then throw in its avatar-like, age-old concept of self-aware technology undermined by evil corporate shenanigans and you have the recipe for disaster. I mean, it looks like Die Hard meets I, Robot. I'll still see it, though.

  1. I'll probably watch it as well. Though I'd argue that in the realm of film the most over used villains are:

    The EVIL Corporation
    Nazis (Proof: Bulletproof Monk)
    The government, in any form.
