Is Simulant Worth Watching?
In terms of critical reception, the film has received mixed reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, it is considered a bit of a flop, while on IMDb, the film has a rating of 5.1 out of 10 based on approximately 2.3K reviews.
According to a review on Roger Ebert's website, the film explores themes of mortality and the loss of life, artificial or otherwise. However, the review also criticises the film for its lack of originality, describing it as a “cheap Blade Runner and I, Robot rip-off.
However, like most critic reviews, that doesn't necessarily mean that you won't like it. In fact, quite a lot of the time, if the critics hate it, then the audience will love it!
It may have a lot in common with Blade Runner but it's not as intense, has a decent central mystery and while it may not win any awards, it's still entertaining.
