What Happened to Monday (2017)

In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.

Siskoid

What Happened to Monday (AKA 7 Sisters) has a preposterous dystopian set-up (but most are) in which siblings are outlawed to keep Earth's population down, but don't worry . The system is put at risk by septuplets who have managed to survive hidden, each being "Karen" one day of the week, but otherwise quite different. Noomi "Dragon Tattoo" Rapace gives distinct performances, and by now, even a B-movie can achieve seamless twin effects. You never get the sense there aren't seven characters in the room. I found the basic plot points entirely predictable, but it doesn't mean there aren't surprises along the way, and so it still works as a sci-fi action thriller despite it being anchored in formula. One thing that does bug me is that they didn't give Willem Dafoe a Swedish accent, but the daughters he raised alone in isolation all have one (Rapace's). I know, I know… We have this impossible setting, but what I can't get past is a small detail. Well, disbelief IS suspended by a thin thread.

7/10 (6.9 on IMDb)

Cool idea, great music, amazing sound (watch it with 5.1 surround at least), great movie when Noomi plays herself in the roles of 7 exact looking siblings, good pace from start to finish, exciting.

This movie starts so promisingly but very quickly comes unraveled. There are a lot of ridiculous decisions made by the characters, such as sending 3 men to subdue 5 women. Tons of inconsistencies and poor dialogue really drags it down. Not to mention the insane predictability of the last 3rd of the film. Give it a miss.
