Could someone help me with the concept behind GODSEND? I didn't get it.

Hi all!

I just watched GODSEND with Robert De Niro, Greg Kinnear, etc. even though I did read the bad reviews. And the movie was bad, of course, but what frustrated me most was that I'm not sure I understand the central concept of the horror film. . .

SPOILERS SPOILERS

The cloned Adam Two starts having visions and behaving badly when he turns 8 - the same age Adam One died. His memories are of Zachary, who I'm guessing was De Niro's kid, who also died. Adam One is a clone of Adam Two, so why does he have Zachary's memory? Or, did De Niro's character inject his kid's DNA with Adam One's DNA? Or is Adam Two a clone of De Niro's kid and not Adam One?

END SPOILER ALERT

This movie is really bad - but I want to get what the writers were getting at with this turkey. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the filmmakers didn't understand the movie either.

I take it this was one of the movies DeNiro did just to satisfy union requirements for films in a year?

I think the kid was acting loco because of the infused DNA from Deniro's dead son.

This movie was lame.

Now that I think about it - I think you're right . . . on both counts.
