From director John Woo (M:I-2 and Face/Off) comes this futuristic thriller that combines spectacular action sequences with a spellbinding mystery that will keep you guessing from the beginning to breathtaking end.
Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck) is a brilliant computer engineer hired for top-secret projects. After each job, Jennings' short-term memory is erased so he cannot recount any project information. Emerging from his latest assignment, a three-year contract with an eight-figure paycheck given to him by his longtime friend (Aaron Eckhart), Jennings is jolted when he is told that during the end of his assignment, he agreed to forfeit all payment.
Jennings has no recourse - until he receives a mysterious envelope containing clues to his forgotten past. With the help of a beautiful scientist (Uma Thurman) he once loved but now cannot remember, Jennings races to solve the puzzle of his past . . . while a terrifying discovery waits in his future.

Paycheck is a rip roaring ride at every turn. The characters engaging, with Affleck taking the leading man role in stride. Just enough arrogance-uncertainty-intellegence-guts to make this "Indiana Jones type" Average Joe turned Hero into a great time.
With enough twists and turns to make it fun and surprising, we have watched it easily a dozen times since our first pass.
I must object to this Blu-Ray release, however: the film was made envisioning DVD as well as theatrical release, and issuing it now on Blu-Ray does it no favors: the sound is distorted and some of the dialog is inaudible over the SFX.
For sci-fi fans this is a must-see film; but buy it on DVD instead of Blu-Ray.
In the past 50 - plus years i have seen several, including some very lame time travel ideas. My first was a 50's version of H. .G. WELLS time machine, which today would be very low key indeed.
With that in mind, this was well thought out, in modern terms, and probably based in part to what may have been "Black ops" over the last ...oh...since after WWII which we had no direct information to the general public, over 60 years of above top secret experiments.
This also shows the capability of memory wipe, which has been a known secret testing both in the military, and in CIA type operations over 60 years, and may still be going on.
So all in all, i liked the film. There's more than what you openly see in the film, if you have the knowledge to see what is there. No...Not to be taken too literally! But enjoy it for what it appears if that's the best YOU can do!! Good plot, good scenario.
