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 Einstien'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 Maori, the indigenous language of New Zealand. 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 »

Strangely enjoyable futuristic flick.
22 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie, it was not the best film about a person fleeing for his life, but it had a nice twist to it as a dude who apparently died some eighteen years prior wakes up and is about to get to be a dying rich guy's new body. Well the best laid plans get squashed as the the apparently dead guy is on the run and Mick Jagger is on his tail. Yes, you heard that correctly Mick Jagger and he is surprisingly good as the guy doing the lead chasing. The action is about what you would expect. This movie and the Keanu Reeves movie "Johnny Mneunic" or however you spell it are very similar to me though I have to give the edge to the Reeves one cause it had the more anime look, however this one looks more polished than that one did. The action is pretty good and it has a nice conclusion to it as well. The acting is solid as Emilio Estevez is good as the protagonist and there are a couple of nice scenes with Anthony Hopkins, but then again anything he is in and any scene he is in is usually a good scene. Not much else to say about this one, it is a nice ride though.
