Storyline

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>

Trivia

In the note on Albert Einstein's picture in the diner is a quote, "Imagination is more Important than Knowledge" attributed to Kia Ora. "Kia ora" is actually a phrase used as an informal greeting in the language of New Zealand's Maori people. Director Geoff Murphy was born in New Zealand and in this particular instance, most Maori people would regard the greeting as very tongue-in-cheek. See more »

Quotes

Alex Furlong: How the hell do you eat river rat?
Eagle Man: Well, first you gotta cut off the head and the tail, and then you gut it. Then it's all a matter of the sauce. You don't just plop down a rodent on a plate and say here's your river rat would you like red wine or white with 'em. Not that there's any wine around here anyway.

Good Entertainment Value
20 November 1998 | by (Ithaca, NY) – See all my reviews

A surprisingly good film with excellent performances by its actors (particularly notable are the minor cameos by an Irish nurse and a street bum) and a good, solid plot. Mick Jagger does an excellent job as a bounty hunter and Rene Russo is at her best. Contains some good chase scenes involving a number of quirky military vehicles (Soviet reconnaissance cars and US FAVs) and a number of decent sized gunfights. Satisfying all across the board.
