From Tysto commentaries:
It’s Arnold and Arnold in an action adventure that probes the delicate social issues of the day and shoots them with lasers! I compare the film to Total Recall, Minority Report, James Bond, Frankenstein, and others. I mix up my Michaels. I get totally creeped out by the SimPal Cindy doll. I raise the delicate question of why Judi Dench is never cast in this kind of film. I point out plot holes such as “why does any of this happen?” I boldly postulate that the bad guys are not nearly as bad as some of the good guys. I also boldly postulate that Michael Rappaport is not a cat person, but I may still have him mixed up with Michael Rooker or possibly Michael Ironside. I make the mistake of saying that Adam 1 got a RePet instead of a SimPal Cindy, when both Adam 1 and Adam 2 got SimPals. Plus: free advice to young filmmakers and mad industrialists!
So, Schwarzenegger versus Schwarzenegger: Schwarzenegger wins. One punch.— Tysto Commentaries,

If Schwarzenegger was ever going to win an Oscar, this is the moment. He’s playing himself talking to himself in a moment of tenderness, teamwork, pathos… and they blow something up.— ,
