Film (2001). Millennium Films Inc/Artisan Entertainment/777 Films Corporation. Directed by Ringo Lam. Written by Lawrence David Riggins and Les Weldon. Cast includes Michael Rooker and Jean-Claude Van Damme. 96 minutes. Colour.
A sadistic thriller with sf trappings, Replicant stars Van Damme – a renowned performer in martial-arts films – in a dual role as a woman-loathing serial killer and a "replicant" (see Clones) made from his DNA. A retired police officer (Rooker) uses the replicant's telepathic link with the original to track the killer. A characteristic exploitation movie, though not completely without merit. [JN]
