competent, watchable, but unremarkable medical thriller
7 December 2004 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

A woman is electrocuted in her bathtub by a man with a tattoo on his wrist. Surprisingly, there's some full frontal nudity in this scene.

Later, a woman living in San Francisco, California is in a car accident and her brain is injured. An experimental procedure corrects her brain waves so that she is able to walk and talk again. However, she now has some memories that don't belong to her, including being electrocuted in a bathtub. Her husband is supportive and tries to help find out what is going on.

Doesn't feel too much like a 1980s movie, apart from an old Space Invaders video game, and a Rubik's Cube.
