Storyline

Auto racer Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez) is snatched by time travel, a split second before a fatal explosion, by Vasendak's (Mick Jagger's) twenty-first century team of techies, who plan to sell his healthy body to an ailing rich man at McCandless Corporation, for a mind transfer. He escapes, but has no rights in this nightmare future of violence and sleaze. The story concerns his survival, and his attempt to revive his relationship with his fiancée Julie (Rene Russo), now fifteen years older and an executive at McCandless.

Goofs

On their way down in the elevator after leaving Michelette's office, Alex pulls the clip from his pistol and says "One shot left". During normal use, a semi-automatic pistol with one round left in the magazine will have TWO total shots remaining, including the round already in the chamber. If Alex had only one shot left the pistol magazine should have been empty. See more »

Jon Monsarrat review: campy but fun
22 August 2002 | by johnnymonsarratSee all my reviews

OK, I'm a sci-fi movie buff. So I'm the type of person who'd like this film.

But I do have some basic standards, and Freejack is just the right sort of campy flick, sort of a "Blade Runner" gone slumming. It's bad, but it's a good bad, if you're into cult classics.

Who should see this film:

-- sci-fi movie buffs, but don't go out of your way, oh and see Demolition Man too which is similar but better

-- nobody else

I enjoyed the film, but campy special effects and silly plot mean I can only give it a 6 out of 10.
