One of my favorite reason for investing in a DVD or Blu-ray movie, is because of all the extras that they usually include, but especially, the deleted scenes. I love watching deleted scenes and complaining about why it should have been incorporated in the movie, or in turn, thinking; “Oh, thank goodness the kept that, out of the movie.” The deleted scene below is for “Surrogates,” and it’s called “Apologies.”
If you have watched the movie, you may or may not feel this scene should have been deleted.
Nevertheless, it is an important scene. It adds to the intrigue and feelings of deceit that both us, the audiences, and Bruce Willis’ character, Tom Greer, is experiencing, at that point in time.
With all the end-of-world apocalyptic movies that we are exposed to lately, this movie might offer an alternative. In the science fiction realm, there are no limits. Therefore it is outstanding as technology makes it possible more and more for artists to take ideas from comic books, dreams and history, and bring them to life. This is the case with “Surrogates.” It is a plot that we have seen before, perhaps in a TV show, or comic book, but now, it’s realized in movie form. With movies like this and the success of “Avatar,” Science fiction is reveling in a sea of endless possibilities.
“Surrogates,” is a movie about these possibilities. I really enjoyed it, although most of my friends complained about the way it ended. If you are like me, when I saw the trailer for this movie, it gave me an “I, Robot” kind of feeling (which is a good thing), and with Jonathan Mostow (of “Terminator 3”) directing the movie, I was pretty stoked, and certain that this would be an enjoyable movie. It was, but after the fact, I realized this was not an Isaac Asimov story (i.e. “I, Robot”), instead it’s based on a comic book. This explains the fantastic science fiction and wonderful action sequences that the movie presented.
The movie will be released to DVD and Blu-ray on Jan. 26.
