With news from Harvard that we may soon be cloning an authentic Neanderthal (if the scientists can find ‘an enthusiastic female’ to impregnate), we got to thinking about films that have featured clones over the years. The list below should be a top ten, but has become a Top 10 + 2, presumably because a process of cloning clone films and unintentionally breeding new ones has also been occurring without our knowledge. Either way, here is our top 10 (+2) clone films. Enjoy enjoy enjoy enjoy….
With that sculpted jaw, flowing mane and piercing blue eyes, up and coming actor Karl Urban is set to become a household name after starring in this summer’s hotly anticipated Judge Dredd. Fresh from appearing in a slew of epic fanboy sagas, he has a lot of experience in physical roles and is prepared to go further than the average actor to achieve the physical authenticity necessary to convince countless audiences that he is all too capable of kicking some serous ass. After getting a look at those impressive biceps in Judge Dredd, we don’t doubt it.
Put that Stallone-starring abomination from 1995 right out of your head – Director Pete Travis’ Dredd is a much more focused and faithful adaptation of science fiction comic 2000AD’s most famous and enduring strip, even if a lack of depth and some bland action stop it achieving greatness.
