Film Review - Freejack (1992)

Freejack is based off the book "Immortality Inc" and tells the tale of Alex Furlong played by Emilio Estevez who is an F1 driver that ends up dead after a fiery crash in his big race, but instead of being dead he's transported into the year 2009, where his body is worth big bucks, escaping a fire fight, he goes on the run, and the chase commences.

Well, in a better movie it would be an exciting chase with an interesting story behind it, instead this movie feels like a pastiche of Star Wars, Mad Max, The Terminator, Blade Runner and Avatar, the last one being ironic as Avatar was released in the same year this movie's central story takes place, not only that but the action is boring to watch and the story makes no sense, mainly because there's no explanation as to what happened between 1991 and 2009, so as a result you're left stranded in a movie that not only bores you but also leaves you with more questions than answers.

Please skip this one and watch the 5 movies mentioned above, they're much more worth your rental money, 1 out of 5.
