Weird and catchy
13 January 2003 | by vicriceSee all my reviews

I'm usually not into Sci-Fi, but I like a good thriller. This movie is both - and at the same time none of the above. I think the story would benefit if it was set in a twisted present instead of the "not so distant future". The movie makers haven't put enough effort into making you believe this is the future. That said, the story has a faint touch of Orwell (author of the unreal and brilliant novel "1984", written in 1948, from which the expression "Big Brother" originate).

The main idea of body switching opens up so many fascinating possibilities, and the movie barely scratches the surface. It leaves you thinking "what if..."

The story isn't the best written one in the world, in fact it's rather thin at times. The acting is average with a few exceptions. The presentation isn't in any way high tech or extremely impressive. Still I think it was a good movie. It's the story beyond the movie that makes it great for me.

Definitely worthwhile, if you like a weird story.
