Adam Gibson is the main hero of the 2000 science-fiction action thriller, The 6th Day. He was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Adam Gibson is a charter pilot along with his partner Hank Morgan who was hired by billionaire Michael Drucker, owner of cloning corporation Replacement Technologies, to take him on the ski trip. Because of Drucker's prominence, the two undergo the blood and eye tests to verify their aptitude. On the day of Drucker's arrival, Adam learns that his family dog Oliver has died, and his wife Natalie told him to have Oliver cloned, which Adam is opposed of cloning. Hank offered to pose as him to fly Drucker instead to allow Adam time to have the pet cloned by RePet. When Adam visited a "RePet" shop, he remains unconvinced and purchases an animatronic doll called a SimPal, named Cindy, instead. However, during that time, Drucker and Hank are shot by one of the skiers name Tripp.
When Adam returns home, he sees that Oliver was cloned and to his shock, he sees a purported clone of himself celebrating his birthday with his family and bought another SimPal doll. Then he was confronted by Replacement Technologies security agents Robert Marshall, Talia Elsworth, Vincent Bansworth and P. Wiley who intend to kill him to keep his cloning a secret. But Gibson escapes, managed to kill Talia and Wiley, but the two were eventually cloned.
Adam goes to the police, but they do not believe his story, as the clone had already reported his car stolen, and deem him insane. Upon realizing it and the security agents were called in, he escapes, but to his shock, he sees the now alive Wiley who tries to kill him, but manages to kill him again. He seeks refuge at an alive Hank's apartment. Hank had trouble believing his story, but when he shows him the clone Adam, he agrees to helps him. Adam contemplates killing his clone but finds himself unable to do it and they return to Hank's apartment to regroup. Then they are ambushed by Tripp, who shoots and kills Hank, but is mortally injured by Adam. He revealed to him that he is a religious anti-cloning extremist and that Hank was a clone, since he killed the original earlier so he can kill Drucker, who was also a clone, and there is now a new Drucker clone. He reveals that Dr. Griffith Weir, the scientist behind Drucker's illegal human-cloning technology, has cloned Drucker, Hank and the Adam clone as Marshall and the now Talia arrived. Tripp commits suicide by shooting himself in the head to avoid being captured by Marshall and the others in order to prevent his memory from being scanned. The agents begin to attack Adam, but he is able to disable Marshall and kills Talia again while before stealing Talia's thumb and going into hiding.
Seeking answers, Adam sneaks into Replacement Technologies, using Talia's thumb to gain access and finds Dr. Weir. Weir confirms Tripp's information about the illegal human cloning and reveals that the eye tests that he and Hank used was actually a memory reader called the syncorder, allowing Drucker and the other to create the memory disks (syncordings) on the dead person's mind. Weir added that to resurrect Drucker, the incident had to be covered up and Adam was cloned because they mistakenly believed he had been killed when he and Hank switched places, which they discovered only later and had Hank cloned as well, which is also why Drucker's agents are trying to kill Adam. He explains to Adam that Drucker, who already died three years before, could lose all of his assets if the revelation became public, since clones are devoid of all rights. Sympathetic with Adam's plight, Weir gives him a syncording of the Drucker clone, but warns him that Drucker may go after the other Adam instead, which would put Adam's family in danger.
