It may well be that this movie deserves the low praise it got from the IMDb voters, but then how many newer sci-fi movies getting higher scores have really done better? This 1992 flick has been sitting on my DVD shelf for some time now and I've decided to re-watch it after seeing the new sci-fi blockbuster "The Island" I've seen some parallels between the two that brought "Freejack" back to my mind . Special effects notwithstanding, I still believe that the older movie comes out a winner. There is just that much of a better story telling, coherence, actor play and <more>
a general ambiance that makes "Freejack" a movie one would want to watch over and over again. The movie is WELL-DONE. It's driven by a simple plot yet its imagery is clear and consistent and the characters have enough development for the audience to care for. A definite must for any sci-fi movie collection.
Freejack: best Mick Jagger movie in which he wears a helmet (by themanicd)
I fully recommend Freejack to anyone in need of a good laugh. I mean if you can take one look at Mick Jagger's super helmet and not bust up, you're all dead inside. It's enormous. I could go into greater detail just know that in the future Earth of "Freejack" your importance in society is of direct relation to the size of your helmet. My favorite scene is the one in which Emilio Estevez finally gets to comes to blows with Jagger. Mick takes off his helmet as if to say "Just you and me...no helmets." Everything about this movie is funny. Did I mention it blows? <more>
In conclusion, the guy who wrote the last comment is a dumbass.
I love "Freejack." This is a creative, original sci-fi movie, featuring Emilio Estevez in one of his best-cast roles, as well as Mick Jagger, who, in my opinion, does a fantastic job portraying Estevez' nemesis, Vicendak. This movie is a terrific mix of action and humor. Renee Russo balances out the excellent cast superseded by the great Anthony Hopkins , and the entire movie is well done. This is a simple, enjoyable film, without twists or turns, yet it entertains. I find it well above average for a piece of its genre, and recommend it to any sci-fi/action fan.
Good Entertainment Value (by valdyr)
A surprisingly good film with excellent performances by its actors particularly notable are the minor cameos by an Irish nurse and a street bum and a good, solid plot. Mick Jagger does an excellent job as a bounty hunter and Rene Russo is at her best. Contains some good chase scenes involving a number of quirky military vehicles Soviet reconnaissance cars and US FAVs and a number of decent sized gunfights. Satisfying all across the board.
How do you like your river rat?...... (by FlashCallahan)
Racer Alex Furlong is snatched by time travel, a split second before a fatal explosion, by Vacendak's 21st-century team of techies, who plan to sell his healthy body to an ailing rich man at McCandless Corporation, for a mind transfer. He escapes, but has no rights in this nightmare future of violence and sleaze. The story concerns his survival, and his attempt to revive his relationship with his fiancée Julie, now 15 years older and an executive at McCandless....Loved this movie when it was released in 1992, had doubts if I would like it nearly twenty years later with rose coloured <more>
specs, and while the film has many flaws, you cannot deny the stupid fun you have whilst watching it.Basically, Murphy has taken Estevez's Billy the Kid and made him into a sci-fi hero, thats plain and simple, as there are many connotations to young guns 2.Even though the story and narration is convoluted throughout, watching Mick Jagger spouting many a classic line is alone worth watching the movie.The swagger he has when saying every line, and the audience can physically see him trying to act so much, he just stops caring toward the end, and it's all the better for it.Emilio is good, but as i've already said, it's just Billy the Kid.The rest of the cast really support well, even if its obvious Hopkins did this for the cash. Characters go and go without any explanation, especially Frankie Faison, and the chap who appears to know Alex when he goes back to his apartment, why didn't Alex have a chat with him/Set pieces are fun even if the are cheesy, and the film is only semi-serious, nothing here to test the grey matter.It's a fun Friday night movie, never boring, always silly.
"The Good Lord says to turn the other cheek... but he never had to deal with dickheads like you."This is the story of a race driver who dies in an accident, but not exactly. The movie has good directing, good acting, and a script that could have been better.Director Geoff Murphy does a good job. The world of the movie is nicely done, with lots of detail. The camera work is excellent, the action scenes are entertaining and the special effects make one miss the '90s and feel sorry CG was ever invented .The actors are young and pretty. Emilio Estevez is good, and his rather small <more>
body is well suited for the part. Rene Russo provides the perfect balance. Mick Jagger is fun to watch, even though he makes no effort to even pretend like his acting. He is just being himself. Amanda Plummer has a small funny role.The script could have been better. While it does a brilliant job of capturing the essence of Robert Sheckley's work - the chase, the hunt, the strange alliances and unusual loyalties - it is a bit slow, in places. There is not a lot of dialog and the main character rarely has anything to say.Freejack. Great fun. If you're looking for anything else, stay away. 9/10.
You know, one thing that really bothers me is the amount of people who just refuse to relax and watch a move without having to consider whether it should win an Oscar. I don't think Freejack was ever intended to be made for serious viewing - I think every actor in it at one time during the movie has got their tongue in their cheek.What you do get in this movie are some spectacular effects, and I'm not talking about the end when you could just as soon go get a sandwich rather than watch the 2001-type slideshow.It's just downright funny. Mick Jagger as the villain giving Emilio <more>
Estevez a "headstart" by counting 1-Mississippi, 2-Mississippi is priceless. David Johanson shines as the shyster in any timeframe. Rene Russo gives us an early indication of screen presence. So just relax and have fun with it.
Derivative, fun movie for B movie fans. (by krachtm)
The plot: In the near future, the rich and powerful kidnap people from the past, in order to transfer their consciousness into them. Escapees are called "Freejacks", and hunted down mercilessly by bounty hunters. Our protagonist must now survive this cyberpunk dystopia, avoid recapture, and topple the evil system.Objectively, Freejack is not a good movie. However, it's so cheesy, fun, and entertaining that I can forgive it when it degenerates into derivative, B-movie clichés, bad acting, and bad dialogue. I remember being quite skeptical about Mick Jagger, back when this this <more>
movie was released, but he was actually pretty tolerable. Plus, unlike some other people, I've always liked Emilio Estevez. Granted, Estevez is not exactly at the top of his game here, but in glorified B movies like Freejack, I'm extremely forgiving of acting and special effects.Maybe this movie works better if you were a teenager when it came out, but I've always thought it got unfairly savaged by critics and audiences who took it entirely way too seriously. Of COURSE the plot is ridiculous and over-the-top. It's got Mick Jagger and David Johansen in it, for God's sake! How can you take that seriously? However, if you can find entertainment in even the worst B movies, then I can't recommend Freejack more highly.
OK flick!! Way better than dumb Matrix 2 & 3... (by Cinema_Love)
Can someone told me why the rating is so low? Because in fact, this flick is a real good sci-fi one. A science-fiction movie that looks real, no effect that look too fake for the eyes with no plot at all like Matrix Reloaded & revolutions. Overrated flicks at all. I may be difficult but this movie tells a story unlike the 2 others I just named. Mick Jagger do a good job as the villain and Estevez/Russo make a perfect duo on-screen. It was one of the few reasons I watch that movie and well, the way this sci-fi works got me since the very 1st minute. Weird people like me who likes Strange <more>
Days like no others will probably like this one too. It's weird, dark, strange, well all the tools to make a sci-fi movie good in my own opinion!
