Remember the future.
Michael Jennings is a genius who's hired – and paid handsomely – by high-tech firms to work on highly sensitive projects, after which his short-term memory is erased so he's incapable of breaching security. But at the end of a three-year job, he's told he isn't getting a paycheck and instead receives a mysterious envelope. In it are clues he must piece together to find out why he wasn't paid – and why he's now in hot water.

I thought I had seen Paycheck before, but when it started I realised I, at least, didn't remember it. Maybe that was for the best.

I like John Woo...most of what he did before he took the Hollywood route was good. This one...well...isn't all that good.

Paycheck has its moments, and the craftsmanship is not all that bad, but I found myself bored for the most part. The actors do their things well enough, but the doesn't have what it takes to build up enough tension...and everything falls flat at the end.

This one could have been so much more, but it fails in the execution. Not really recommended unless you catch it on TV with nothing else worthwhile to look at...
