Nice enough b grade science fiction thriller
25 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Though hardly great stuff, I had a decent enough time with Xchange, it delivered some thrills, some laughs and an unexpected dose of nudity. The plot is petty cool, with a businessman using a new technology of transferring ones consciousness into another someone else's body in order to travel fast, but getting into a spot of bother when a terrorist pilfers his body when he leaves it. As well as this interesting concept there are a few sweet gadgets as well, though there aren't too many action scenes or violent moments. Mostly this film relies on wit, invention and a relatively decent cast, though it does hot up with a fairly exciting finale. Castwise we have firstly Kyle McLachlan, who is oddly subdued, lacking the magnetic appeal of say, Agent Cooper or Orson in Desperate Housewives, but still perfectly watchable. Sadly he isn't in it too much and Stephen Baldwin is the hero for the bulk of the film and he's reasonable enough if a tad uncharismatic. Kim Coates does well as the bad guy, I never heard of him but he holds the attention well, and the main women are Pascale Bussieres, who is quite a looker in a curious sort of way and also has an intensely appealing accent, (French I'd say, though it may in fact be French Canadian given that the film was made in Canada) and Janet Kidder, who is also quite a looker, though doesn't have a cool accent. There are a few sex scenes, providing some nice sights of fine female flesh, though sadly there is not too much in the way of violence or gore. Though the few mildly grisly moments are pretty nifty, which helps out a lot. All in all, this is unremarkable stuff and unlikely to rock anyones world, but it is a good watch, with a good streak of wit and a decent measure of fun throughout. Not one to hungrily seek out or get too excited about then but provided your expectations are low, this should deliver a fair enough fix of low key sci fi thrills.
