Die Burger
Laetitia Pople quote iconDit is teen beste skaflike vermaak, danksy Bruce Willis se spel

Box Office
Mark Keizer quote iconAs a cautionary tale, the movie has much to say; it just chooses not to say it. What’s left is a passable, reasonably intriguing springboard for action.
8
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconSurrogates is entertaining and ingenious, but it settles too soon for formula.

eye Weekly
Stuart Berman quote iconMovies as formulaic as this one leave us with little choice but to stay at home and download something better off the internet.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconWhile it isn't a horrible film, it just can't escape feeling that it's an artificial version of the real thing, where the faux elements stand out just enough to point that out to viewers who will likely discuss such matters with others via Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere rather than in person. Let's just hope they're not seated next to their friends or spouses while doing so.

Tomatometer quote iconThough it sports a slick look and feel, Surrogates fails to capitalize on a promising premise, relying instead on mindless action and a poor script.
