Storyline

Clayton Pierce is an agent working under deep cover. Although he is a top agent, he is questioning his loyalty after twenty years of service. His devotion has already cost him his wife, family and personal life. During a de-briefing from his last assignment, he is unknowingly administered the drug Oblivion, which destroys brain cells causing permanent memory loss. Within a few days of injection, the drug's effects become irreversible. Clayton will not only lose his memory, he will lose his identity as well. He realizes he can no longer rely on anyone at the agency to help him, not even his boss, Agent LaNova. With nowhere left to go, he appeals to his ex-wife, Kate, for help. Clayton and Kate must locate the antidote before it's too late. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

On the chess board shown at the beginning (and then again later in the movie) the main character promotes the pawn to a knight which both he and the computer claim is a checkmate for black. It isn't a checkmate, since white can then take the knight with the bishop. There is a mate in three for black (rook to g2, white is forced to move the king into the corner, rook to a1, white is forced to interpose the bishop, rook takes bishop = checkmate) See more »

come on rps-2, don't hold back... tell us how you REALLY feel!
2 February 2006 | by (Central Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

Well, yes there were a lot of bangs, blasts, and flashbacks. But since it was up against the State of the Union address, it gets plus points for being more in touch with reality.

Scheider appeared infrequently in the film, telegraphing in his performance from wherever he was mentally. He has done some really incredible films in the past... its sad to see him waste his time on this one. The female lead was easy on the eyes, and probably gave the most from her reserves of acting juice. The hunk/hero had less emotion than the beer bottle I was looking at him through.

I watched it because it was the least objectionable thing on TV for that time slot, and thats not saying much.
