When he gets mysteriously ambushed and killed, an experimental procedure is used to transfer his memories into dangerous convict Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner).

Trivia

The moving bridge action car sequence was not originally scripted on a moving bridge, but a stationery one. It was a concept conceived by Ariel Vromen after he had to wait at an English airport, before going to the production office, and saw this bridge moving. See more »

Goofs

The London Black Cab drivers do not need GPS to find a location. Anyone wanting a London Cab license spends years studying the street map of London and must pass rigorous testing to prove they can go to any address anywhere in the city from memory. Most people study two years or more to qualify. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jericho Stewart: [narrating] They messed with my brain. Thought they knew what they'd get, but they were wrong. They don't know me. I do not know what happens next, but this I do know: you hurt me... I hurt you worse.

Really liked this movie
17 April 2016 | by sherryheimSee all my reviews

This was a really good movie, I don't understand all the critic's pans. Yes, there is a sci-fi element, so what? Jericho is a man who suffered a brain injury as a child that took away the use of his frontal lobe. This left him with the animal instincts of survival with basically no other human emotional traits as well as leaving that portion of his brain as virtually a blank canvas. The movie was action-packed, there were no slow points, the acting was spot on, the photography was great, the characters well defined. Jericho is a human experiment that the government forced to happen. The results are what one might expect from government interference in such a situation. If the world every goes full on crazy, I want Jericho on my team! I would go to see this movie again with a friend and I will certainly buy the DVD when it comes out. Costner is such a well developed actor and does a great job with the part. Make no mistake, that Jericho dude is one bad...
