PAYCHECK (2003 USA)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Paycheck—interesting concept and worth a watch—fails to tantalize its audience. The script is adventurous, but Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill persona kills this script and makes Ben Affleck just average. Director John Woo seems challenged in bringing this film through to its conclusion.

Storyline

An engineer agrees to perform a series of reverse engineering projects in exchange for company stock.

Maybe. This film does not present itself well.
