John Woo is a talented action director. But here it almost seems like he wanted to be Michael Bay for a day. The setpieces aren't very memorable and the plot is a prepackaged pile of genre cliches. Granted, the parts where Affleck's character has to sit down and think about his own memory do have a slight charm to them. Uma Thurman is bland as the love interest while Aaron Eckhart yucks it up as the villain. It's best thought of as a lowrent mix between Total Recall and Minority Report.

Let's see. You take a portion of Total Recall and a touch of Terminator 2, add a soupcon of Memento, simmer for 90 minutes and you get...a really lame rip off of Minority Report. At end of the day, it's impossible to care about two characters you know absolutely nothing about, apart from they're supposed to be "the good guys". Especially if one of them's Ben Affleck.

High concept sci-fi film that contains a good amount of action. Not very deep, but still provides some average entertainment.
