Auto racer Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez) is snatched by time travel, a split second before a fatal explosion, by Vasendak's (Mick Jagger's) twenty-first 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.

In the note on Albert Einstein'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 the language of New Zealand's Maori people. 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 »

If this is a thriller, then perhaps I need some more caffeine. This is a poorly acted movie, with too many explosions and chases trying to up the nonexistent excitement. Who would've thought Mick Jagger could act? Answer: no one, not after seeing this movie. Ditto Emilio Estevez, but at least he was trying. Rene Russo never made much of an impression on me, and Anthony Hopkins simply wasn't given much to do. Too contrived to be entertaining, if you ask me.
