Loss of identity thriller
14 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this more for the questions it raised, rather than the film itself. I've always liked the loss of identity, amnesia, who am I really? type plots. The story itself reads like one of Dean Koontz's potboiler novels. Also echoes of the 'Total Recall' film with the brain swapping stuff and having Kevin McCarthy as the unhinged scientist, brought back memories of the classic 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers.' One of the questions asked was the old 'what is the soul?' one. It was strange to see that the strongest character in the film itself was the brain imprints of a dead man! Asking the other question of what truly constitutes a person's personality.

Not the best film ever and really a strictly by numbers TV movie at the end of the day. But was oddly engaging and the two leads performed well in their dual roles. File under - not bad.
