Impostor (2002, USA) C-95m. ** D: Gary Fleder. Starring Gary Sinise, Madeleine Stowe, Vincent D'Onofrio, Tony Shalhoub, Mekhi Phifer, Tim Guinee, Lindsay Crouse, Elizabeth Pena. In the year 2079 humanity is at war with extra-terrestrials from Alpha Centauri, and Sinise has just developed a powerful weapon, when authorities claim that he is actually a replicant made to resemble himself. They want to kill him, but he manages to escape. Can he prove that he is human? Adaptation of a short story by Philip K. Dick almost seems like a TOTAL RECALL (1990) remake. Sinise is compelling in this sci-fi tale that otherwise remains rather undistinguinshed. Sat on the shelf for a year. R-rated cirector's cut runs 102m.
