Paycheck ~ (USA, 2003) ~ DVD

I put this in my queue because it has Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman in it. But I kept pushing it back. You know when this happens, it probably shouldn’t even be in my queue, or it’s there only as a curiosity. This is one of those goofy sci-fi efforts that has a weak premise that it really doesn’t know what to do with. Films that teeter on the verge of serious and comic hardly ever work for me. John Woo throws it all out the window about half way through, seemingly saying, “Let’s just go with the action”. Affleck seems to be to be very good or very bad. This one is the latter. Even Uma Thurman (whom I dearly love), and tries her best, can’t save this one.
