    I saw Paycheck almost 15 years ago, and remembered almost nothing from it, except that Affleck was in it and that he rode a motorbike. Almost like I was given the memory removal treatment myself. Did not bode well for a rewatch, especially considering how unvalued the movie is. John Woo does Philip K. Dick isn't the most obvious fit, and in fact, Wooisms always feel a little out of place in an American film, maybe because he's not allowed to go full style in them, I dunno. But I'm going to defend this one. Yes, it's often silly, but I can't like explosive squibs and random doves and slow-mo and quick zooms in Woo's Hong Kong films, and pan them when the same action takes place in a generic 5-minutes-in-the-future city played by Vancouver. I can't like Dick's stories and complain about the crazy science and thin characters. They're elements of each man's style, and I'm a fan of both. I like the idea of reverse engineer reverse-engineering the clues he's left himself after a three-year dose of amnesia. I like the tricks one might do if they had foreknowledge of the future but only the simplest of resources. And damn it, I like the ridiculous action set pieces. Very cool cast as well, several actors before they made it big. The epilogue is terribly cheesy though, I can't possibly give it a pass, but otherwise this is a lot better than I remembered (or as the case may be, didn't). 1 month 2 weeks ago
