The New York of 2009 has just one extra skyscraper superimposed upon it. Far from being annoying, these economies lend the film an unexpected, olde-worlde charm.
The real casualties in this easy resort to smashing up the set are the actors, including Jagger and Estevez.
A predictable cliche-ridden futuristic sci-fi thriller, lacking smarts and wit.
Weak and miscast sci-fi actioner. The likes of Hopkins and Russo are wasted here.
Absolutely moronic, and therefore quite fun in certain spots.
...a trite screenplay, limp pacing, and lackluster acting.
Loosely adapted from the sci-fi novel 'Immortality, Inc.' back in 1959 but failing to match the original source and instead opting for a more cyber punk/neo distopian future mix which almost always tends to fail in films for some reason, accept for 'Blade Runner'.
A few films spring to mind like 'Johnny Mnemonic' and 'Lawnmower Man' when watching this as all are the same kind of future based flop, over the top with terrible effects, sets, costume and acting, all as if no one actually attempted to make the films appear realistic or coherent. 'Freejack' is slightly better than the others with a more stable plot and a half decent style and look but the casting was horrendously bad and ruined any chance of even the smallest kudos.
Estevez simply isn't a good actor and that's it, he can't play the action man and proves it here. Russo in my opinion is like a piece of wood and not much better looking whilst Jagger is in there as a gimmick to try and gain more interest simply because its Mick Jagger playing a villain, plus he looked ridiculous wearing that fighter pilot helmet thing. Hopkins is obviously there to try and gain some respect for the film and add a touch of sci-fi class but he can't save it and comes across rather flat.
I saw this a long time ago, I need to watch it again. I remember that Emilio Estevez and Mick Jagger were really cool in this movie, and it had an interesting futuristic story.
A pretty good time travelish movie. I liked the action and the fish out of water vibe we have with Estevez running around the future not knowing who to trust. It's fun.
This movie has interesting ideas. It's too cool seeing Mick Jagger as the chief baddy in a science fiction film. This wasn't an epic; it was a low-budget dumpy future portrayed. Good story though.
