If someone you loved were taken from you, how far would you go to bring them back? This is the question confronting grief-stricken Paul and Jessie Duncan (Greg Kinnear, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos) as they are about to bury their beloved eight year-old son, Adam (Cameron Bright). Into that moment of absolute despair steps Dr. Richard Wells (Robert De Niro) with an utterly incredible offer. He can bring their son back, alive.
He explains that Adam is dead but his cells live on. Wells would clone the boy and Jessie could give birth to him once more, allowing Adam a second chance at life, and the family another chance at happiness.
But Dr. Wells' offer comes with conditions: The process is illegal, so secrecy must be absolute. The new Adam will never see another doctor and the Duncan's will sever ties with friends and family and move to another town.
The new Adam is born without complication and appears to be a perfect replica in every way. His life follows a comfortingly similar pattern until he passes his eighth birthday - and, unaware that he has reached a milestone, he literally begins living on borrowed time.
What the critics are saying:
"...a supernatural chiller that's so formulaic its tagline could have been e=mc2."- Jamie Russell, BBCi Films
"A silly if sporadically jolting thriller." - Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post"A poor man's Shining, with some lame Sixth Sense and Omen elements thrown in."- Claudia Puig, USA Today
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
