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.

cheesy 90s sci-fi
1 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Auto racer Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez) has a horrible crash in front of his girlfriend Julie Redlund (Rene Russo). He is kidnapped by Victor Vacendak (Mick Jagger) at the moment of impact and transported into the future known as a Freejack. The US is a dystopian crime-ridden world with McCandless Corp as the biggest and most powerful company. The head of the corporation Ian McCandless (Anthony Hopkins) had died and transferred his mind into a vast computer called the Spiritual Switchboard. Julie Redlund is now a high-power executive in McCandless. When criminals attack Victor's convoy, Alex manages to escape. Victor must hunt down Alex for Ian McCandless who has 36 more hours to transfer his mind into a body.

This is one of those cheesy 90s sci-fi movies. Lots of money and effort had been spent on making the cars look futuristic. It mostly leaves them looking cheesy. The whole thing is a bit of cheese fest. Mick Jagger is interesting as a villain but he never stops being Mick Jagger. There is plenty of action and some car chases. It all adds up to something that isn't quite up to par but has some memorable cheese.
