Goofs

When Toffler and Renard arrive at the hotel (to find Fisk) Toffler's timer shows "8:14 timer3" (8hours 14minutes). After being hit over the head and kidnapped Toffler wakes up in a warehouse near the harbour and the timer shows "0:31 timer1". They get away at "0:23 timer1", cross the bridge at "0:05:53 timer3" and transfer him back into his own body at "0:00:46 timer3". Apart from the change of the timer number, was he really unconscious for 7hours 43 minutes? See more »

For once a genre movie that's got a brain and plenty of action, too
29 January 2001 | by (NY, Usa) – See all my reviews

Very cool film with one of the best ticking clocks ever.The hero, a guy whose body's been stolen by a terrorist, has three days to find himself before he dies.Kyle MacLachlan gives one of his best performances ever. When he finds out his body ain't coming back, you feel his pain! Stephen Baldwin's pretty good, too, as the clone body Maclachlan has to borrow & proceeds to trash like a rental car.And Pascale Bussieres, where'd she come from?Beautiful, sexy, smart, really good actress.There's lots of good future-shock touches to tell us we're not in Kansas anymore, like gadget boutiques that sell weapons to executives (check out the "protonic monofilament") & assassins who use "seeker" missiles that circle the skies for days waiting for their targets to show (now you know why the movie opens with a bang!). The whole travel-by-body -exchanging angle is original & very clever in the way it plays out. For once we get a genre movie that's got a brain & plenty of action, too. A real surprise coming from director Allan Moyle, whose previous films, including the delicious PUMP UP THE VOLUME, seem more focused on teens, music, & sex (though there's plenty of that here
