* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: How Drucker tries to justify his cloning, saying with his technology, the world won't have to lose it's "[[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein Einsteins]]" and "[[Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozarts]]".

* VillainHasAPoint: Drucker points out that human cloning could save many lives, and ensure that humanity doesn't have to lose its Einsteins and Motzarts. The laws on cloning in-story are also heavily implied to be out-of-date, and influenced by religion.

** While most clones are just fine, Wiley keeps having phantom pains from previous deaths.

to:

** While most clones are just fine, Drucker inserts lethal congenital diseases into many of his clones, as a way of controlling them or their loved ones. The diseases kill them in only a few years, forcing them to keep coming back to Drucker, who simply re-clones them and starts all over again.

Wiley keeps having phantom pains from previous deaths.

Added DiffLines:

* RobosexualsAreCreeps: Adam's best friend Hank has a holographic "companion" at home which he claims to be better than a real wife. Adam, a devoted family man, just finds it creepy and pathetic. Indeed, outside of his friendship with Adam, Hank is shown to have [[LonersAreFreaks no social life to speak of]].


* KissMeIAmVirtual: Adam's friend, Hank, has an... interesting virtual companion.

* AdamAndOrEve: Like his biblical namesake, Adam Gibson has life created out of a piece of him - namely his genes (and memory backup).



* {{Zeerust}}: The film opens on an XFL game. The XFL was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball league, backed by Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, which was meant to compete with the NFL. It ended so quickly that most people don't even remember it existed, yet it's featured in this movie's futuristic setting.

* UncertainDoom: It's unclear exactly what head {{Mook}} Marshall's final fate is. He can be seen to still be breathing when Adam retrieves his gun, but whether he survived the explosion is uncertain. He's also the only villain not seen to be killed on-screen, [[AnArmAndALeg though he does have his leg blown off]].

* AntiVillain: Drucker. While he's an overall {{Jerkass}} and is quite ruthless in protecting the secret that he's a clone -- understandable since cloning is illegal and he'd be considered legally dead, if not executed -- his human cloning technology could change the face of human suffering and save many lives, and the technology is already used in-story for organ transplants and to solve depleted fish stocks. He's even lobbying aggressively to get the law against cloning changed, working within the system so that he can do things legally.

He's even lobbying aggressively to get the law against cloning changed, working within the system so that he can do things legally. On the other hand, he routinely murders people before replacing them with clones, sometimes for purely profit-driven reasons.
