Movie Info

Amnesiac Gulf War veteran Jack Starks (Adrien Brody) can't explain why he's been found at the scene of a murder. Ordered to a mental hospital, Jack is subjected to Dr. Thomas Becker's (Kris Kristofferson) unusual treatment plan, which involves mysterious injections, sensory deprivation and confinement in a straitjacket. Locked away on his own, Jack discovers he can travel to the future, where he's compelled to help a onetime acquaintance (Keira Knightley) and investigate his own odd fate.

Audience Reviews for The Jacket

  • Apr 10, 2019
    The film has an intriguing idea but takes too long to finally kick in, which is something that ought to be a bit exasperating for some viewers, and it almost gets ruined by a silly ending that tries too hard to be optimistic against any logic left, even if the actors do their best to sell it.

    Jacob's Ladder meets 12 Monkeys with underwhelming results. Tha Jacket is all flare and little else, trying to play smart to belong to the grown-ups club but ends up making little to no sense. Plot details go nowhere, characters are completely wasted and pointless (Daniel Craig anyone?) and the fast editing just gets obnoxious after a while. Add an unbearably cheesy twist and Tha Jacket fails miserably at whatever it was trying to convey. Props to the actors who were actually trying but nothing much came across their flat characters.

    good for its concept but the overall pay off is a little slow. adrien brody is a great actor but he can't save this film from being more then just a stylish thriller.

    Adrian Brody has superb performance, but it didn't save the film. Thought it was a post traumatic experience but it became a time traveling thriller, not saying I am disappointed, but it's really not as good. Thrilling? Not really...
