* NightmareFuel / UncannyValley: That animatronic doll... creepy.
** It was made by the guys who did ''{{Tremors}}'', so it's kind of expected. Though for the wrong reasons.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: Drucker does do plenty of evil and vile things to try and protect his secret, but the fact remains that his cloning technology could be used to save many lives, and is already used in-story to clone organs for life-saving surgery, and to provide food after fish stocks have been depleted. His arguments on saving lives by conquering death and allowing eternal youth are not given any serious rebuttal, but are treated as wrong because he's the villain, absent, perhaps, the simultaneous existence of an individual and his clone demonstrating the difference between "eternal life" and "printing" a new xeroxed copy.

Really, the only thing making him villainous is the fact that ''he'' wants to be the one holding the keys to the cloning facilities, but really this is no more evil than any head of any other corporation wanting to control their own business.

** Arguably, Drucker's claims of immortality are rebutted visually as we see one of his clones stripping his still-alive-but-mortally-wounded predecessor of their clothes. In short, his perspective is ''stupid'' as the existence of two clones simultaneously makes it clear they are ''not'' the same person.

** Actually, the fact that it's pretty strongly shown, through the scenario of his own clone coming back at then proceeding to discard the original, shows that this process wouldn't really save lives, but merely replace them with xeroxed genetic blanks. Dr Weir's wife's clone said it best, "these feelings I have for you, they're not mine." That, and the kidnapping of his wife and daughter, plus the murder of anyone who got in his way, should pretty much cement his villainy. In addition, if he's really so altruistic, he shouldn't care about having sole control of who's cloned and who isn't. Ergo, in this reviewer's opinion, he's unmasked to be a ruthless, egotistic, profiteering JerkAss.
