    Surrogates

    ★★½

    Bruce Willis & Rosamund Pike star in this action romp that requires little thinking. Everyone in the world is now able to have a surrogate of themselves if the desire. You can be anyone you want. Look like anything you want. Of course there is a faction of people who resist this and want to rid the world of these surrogates.

It starts out with the drafting of men as young as 16 years old,…

Refuse to play or lie? You die.

    Now this was a fairly entertaining movie. This…
