Bounty hunters from the future raid the present to provide new bodies for the super rich in the all-out, pedal-to-the-medal sci-fi thriller Freejack, directed by Geoff Murphy (Young Guns) and sparked by the imagination of Alien and Total Recall veteran Ronald Shusett.
Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, Anthony Hopkins and Rene Russo star, keeping pace with the scenic, supersonic excitement. Prior to a crash, race car driver Alex Furlong (Estevez) is snatched from his cockpit and hurled into the futureworld of 2009. He's dead. And running for his life. He's a "freejack," a stranger in the strangest of lands. And a relentless "bonejacker" (Jagger) can collect millions bringing him in.

Rene Russo is forgettable in this one, I never thought much of her acting, but in this one she shows all the acting range from A to B. Also Anthony Hopkins has maybe 3 scenes in this movie, 2 of which are a minute or less. Then the climax of the movie where the big reveal is made about him, he does not really sell me on the whole plot. Maybe it's because he's hardly in the movie? I don't know. Then my last criticism, is directed a Mick Jagger. I thought he was very good with the role overall, he had his moments. But there is this whole creepy "be me friend" thing that really seems off, and very strange. Also, he never convinces me he's a badass. I think this is more a problem of how the character is written. He literally goes from hardcore mercenary to a softie sympathizer from start to finish of this movie. In between is his character flip flopping from hardcore merc, to funny one liner guy, to admiring Fabrege eggs, to honorable bad guy, then to white hat softer side of Jagger by the end.
So what's so great about this movie? Emilio Estevez. He carries this movie overall, and puts in a good performance. Sadly, his effort is not enough to keep this movie out of the $.99 cent bin. At the time Freejack came out, this cast was A-List. But even with Estevez putting In a solid job, and Jagger doing better than I expected, it could not offset the "phoning it in" performances from Russo and Hopkins.
So in closing, it's no masterpiece. But, if you're wanting a throwback sci-fi that is fun to watch, here's your bet.
