Bearable is the key word here. Trust me. Olen Ray has done a hell of a lot worse.
18 September 2013 | by callanvassSee all my reviews

I couldn't help but think Total Recall while viewing this movie. I firmly believe Olen Ray was heavily influenced by that movie. The whole plot is similar in some ways to it; memory loss, forgetting who you are, being used for a specific deed. Ring a bell? For an Olen Ray movie though, it's actually quite tolerable. Michael Dudikoff has always been a capable B actor, and I've always felt he was slightly underrated. He's not a great actor by any means, but he has presence and charisma. I did get annoyed though at all the flashbacks. It was a bit distracting for me. I also felt Dudikoff and Langenkamp lacked chemistry. The best compliments I can give Fugitive Mind is that it flows well with an easy pace, and the acting is quite consummate. Michael Dudikoff does well as the lead. My only carp is that I felt he remembered things a bit too easy for my liking. It felt too neat and unrealistic. More character development with him would have been nice. Heather Langenkamp is one of my absolute favorites, so it's always a pleasure to see her. It's a bit upsetting to see her languishing in this type of stuff, but she made the best of it. She did scream a bit too much in my opinion, but aside from that. She was good.

Final Thoughts: This is pretty hard to find, and I'm not sure if it's worth the effort to be honest with you. I like Michael Dudikoff for what he is, and Heather Langenkamp is one of my favorite actresses, but this movie is pretty mediocre. It's a low rent Total Recall in ways, but it's watchable. I suppose it's worth a look if you can find it cheap at a pawn shop or something, but do not shell out big bucks for it.

4/10
