Jennings is the best reverse-engineer in the business. He is hired by his friend Rethrick to do a special job, with the promise of a multi-million dollar paycheck when successfully completed. When he is finished, all memory of what he had been working on is erased from his mind. That's when his problems really start to begin. He is hunted by the FBI for something he has no recollection of doing and has little time to work it out. Before his memory wipe, he sent himself 19 seemingly unconnected objects, to allow him to put the puzzle together and discover just what has gone on and what he has done.

A rather fun adventure/mystery full of intrigue and confusion. A pretty good whodoneit.

Great premise and heavy with cyberpunk themes. The acting is not terrible. The story is great. The way the movie goes about telling that story is very Jon Woo flawed. People are constantly going through plate glass windows. Motorcycle chases. But the base story is very good. Would be a nice remake (and I don't say that very often).

There are two movies here. The first is as described in the catalog description, and is wonderfully done. That movie ends, and the second begins the moment the guns come out and the car/motorcycle chases/crashes begin. A writer friend was once a ghost writer for Hollywood films.Anytime he tried to write something intelligent he was told they wanted car crashes. He won't say which movies he worked on, but Paycheck seems to fit the genre. What surprises me is they actually have to write these mindless scenes.

Interesting idea but execution needs work.

Science-fiction film with a remarkably clever & original premise plus decent performances.
