In "Replicas," Keanu Reeves plays William Foster, a brilliant neuroscientist and synthetic biologist who works for a company called Bionyne. While working on a project to transplant human consciousness into a synthetic body, William's wife Mona (Alice Eve) and their three children are killed in a car accident. Devastated, William cannot bear the thought of losing his family forever. He takes desperate measures and, with the help of his colleague Ed Whittle (Thomas Middleditch), uses cutting-edge technology to transfer the memories and consciousness of his family into synthetic bodies.

William's successful experiment comes with consequences, however. As he attempts to cover up the illegal procedure from his company and the authorities, he must also grapple with the moral implications of bringing his family back from the dead.

The stakes are raised when William discovers that not all of the transferred memories came back intact. His family members begin to experience glitches and memories from their past life that contradict their new identities. William must race against time to fix the glitches before his deceit is uncovered and his family is taken away from him again.

As William fights to keep his family alive and together, he also learns that the Bionyne company has its own sinister motives for acquiring the technology he created.

"Replicas" slowly builds tension and suspense around William's desperate mission to resurrect his family. Keanu Reeves gives a convincing and emotional portrayal of a man who is willing to break the rules to be with his loved ones again. Alice Eve and Thomas Middleditch also add depth to their characters and the film's overall themes about the implications of technology on humanity.

The movie's special effects are well-done, particularly the scenes that depict the synthetic bodies and William's lab. The film also benefits from a strong score by composer Mark Kilian.

While the film's science fiction elements are intriguing, "Replicas" ultimately falls short in terms of its overall execution. The plot becomes convoluted and repetitive, with many scenes feeling drawn-out and unnecessary.

Despite this flaw, "Replicas" is a worthwhile watch for those interested in science fiction and the ethical implications of technological advancements. Keanu Reeves delivers a strong performance that anchors the film's emotional core.

Replicas is a 2019 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 47 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 19.
