When someone tries to murder watchmaker Eddy Kay, the incident triggers a barrage of nightmares and flashbacks into a past that isn't his own. Fearing for his sanity, Eddy contacts psychiatrist Dr. Anna Nolmar for help. Anna thinks he's hallucinating until another attack proves the dangers are all too real. The two of them go on the run, trying to discover the truth about Eddie's past and true identity before it kills them. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

You don't even know who you are.
8 October 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

The minute I saw Patsy Kensit's lips, I knew I had seen her before. It was driving me crazy. I was thrown off by the Hungarian character she played. I have to admit that she was the only reason I watched this movie, and I wasn't disappointed.

She didn't give the full exposure reported in Angels and Insects or Shelter Island, but we did get the view we saw in Lethal Weapon 2 - I finally remembered that awesome performance as the South African secretary! Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Rock, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) was the simple watch repairer that didn't know who he was and why everyone was trying to kill him. He did OK, but Kensit stole the show. You've seen the basic script before in In the Line of Fire, done much better by Eastwood.

Blue, Brown Redd, Green, and Grey were a little over-the top and no match at all, but they provided some exciting moments.

I probably would have given it a higher rating had I just not felt that I had seen it all before.
