Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, Adam and his clone make a jump for the helicopter to escape the explosion. In one scene, you'll see Sport Jacket Adam holding the ladder to the helicopter with Leather Jacket Adam holding onto the legs of the first Adam. After a cutaway scene, you'll see these two have switched places (Leather jacket on ladder, Sport jacket on bottom). The next time you see them, they're switched back in the correct order. (01:52:30)
The film starts with a football player being critically injured. He is rushed to hospital, but while in the ambulence his life support is switched off and he dies. But later, he is seen alive and well. But how?
Adams is a pilot who works for a helicopter charter company in the near future. One day some people come to test his 'eyesight'. Later he finds out they've recorded his genetic structure. Because it's his birthday he takes the day off and his friend does his flights. He turns up at his house only to find another Adams is already inside, celebrating. Two mysterious people show up and he escapes from them, killing them.
As the film progresses it is discovered that people are being cloned at a large medical facility, despite it being against the law. Adams and his clone discover the truth so the bad guys capture his wife, Natalie, and their daughter, Clara. The two Adams work together and infiltrate the facility where they save their family.
Question: What was the whole point of killing and cloning the charter pilots in the first place? My first thought was that Decker wanted employees that were totally obedient and demanded no pay (after all, the clones would only have five years to live, and would then have to be cloned again), but considering that each cloning cost $1,3 million, it would be a lot cheaper and less risky to hire the pilots regularly. So why kill them?
