Auto racer Alex Furlong is snatched by time travel, a split second before a fatal explosion, by Vasendak's 21st-century team of techies, who plan to sell his healthy body to an ailing rich man at McCandless Corporation, for a mind transfer. He escapes, but has no rights in this nightmare future of violence and sleaze. The story concerns his survival, and his attempt to revive his relationship with his fiancée Julie, now 15 years older and an executive at McCandless. Written by Will Briggs <wbriggs@sirius.uta.edu>

Poor Sci fi
16 July 2001 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

If Nothing else, This film certainly deserves points for its Ambitiousness. Director Geoff Murphy seems to be trying to make this a Good film, despite the fact that he has to work with a Poor story and awful performances.

This is the Kind of film you forget about the moment you walk out of the theatre.And in the Case of this film, It would be amazing if you ever thought about it again.

The Story goes like this...In 1991 race car driver Estevez is taken from a Race car moments before a blazing Crash and is hauled into the Year 2009.The Idea is a Businessman who is already dead????...wants to get into his body cause Estevez's ex love rene russo who now works for the Businessman still mops about her Ex Boyfriend

Firstly Estevez and Jagger give awful performances...Jagger is so bad that he comes off as more amusing than terrifying...and Estevez is all wrong for this film,He simply cant do a Dramatic role,(and the scene where He trys to pretend he is Anthony Hopkins left me in Stitches).Rene russo isnt to bad,although her and Estevez are so mismatched in this film,that I can hardly imagine her spending 18 Years crying over him.

Anthony Hopkins certainly made a Mistake doing this film,He gets a Huge demerit for this one.And some of the Effects in this film look downright cheesy.And a Lot of the Direction is poor.The Film have some Funny moments,But it is all a letdown.

When it was release in early 1992...I rushed out to see it...Mostly at the prospect of seeing Jagger play a baddie...that was a Mistake..I didnt mind the Film,But I expected much Better

I give this....3 out of 10
