Synopsis


Paycheck
John Woo directs the sci-fi action thriller Paycheck, based on a story written by Philip K. Dick in 1953. Waking up with his short-term memory erased, engineer Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck) learns that he has been doing highly secretive work for the last three years in exchange for billions of dollars. But when he tries to get paid, he finds out that he himself had previously exchanged the money for an envelope of random clues to his life. Chased by an FBI agent (Michael C. Hall) and his old boss Rethrick (Aaron Eckhart), Michael uses the clues to find out his identity and prove his innocence. Uma Thurman appears as his love interest and partner, Rachel. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    The ultimate NDA (non-disclosure agreement)

    Posted

    4 of 5 stars for the sci-fi movie Paycheck. Ben Affleck plays a computer engineer who is hired to perform long-term top secret projects for an employer and then to have his memory wiped-clean after the project/contract completes. Talk about an NDA! After he exits from hs current project, the world is upside down and he has a pocket full of odds and ends. With no memory of the last several years, he tries to understand the items in his pocket (who, what and why???). Uma Thurman has a secondary role as his girlfriend. You travel along with our lead in his quest to figure out the items and what they mean. I give this a 4 as the plot is not very guessable and it keeps you glued to the action. I highly recommend this movie; you'll be surprised to learn what his project was all about.

    Better than you've heard

    This movie is probably better than you've heard it was, but that obviously doesn't make it good. The story is compelling, but the acting is not up to par. Even Aaron Eckhart whose work I generally respect just does not do a great job in his role. If you notice this movie on TV sometime it might be worth flipping to, but it's ultimately not worth the cost to buy or rent.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Paycheck is a clever little sci-fi/mystery. It has a solid cast and an original story that is worth a look if you never got to see it in the theater.

    I didn't know he had it in him. A surprisingly good scifi flick. So very well done. Check it out. No regrets.
