A true guilty pleasure of a movie! It's Anthony Hopkins playing, well, pretty much, Anthony Hopkins. Mick Jagger is just kind of just playing a rougher version of a himself and Emilio Estevez is kind of all over the place. The plot is original (or it was then) and fun. The pairing of Rene Russo (who looks great in this movie) and Emilio Estevez is a nice change of pace for once as she's actually older than him!
Filled with the usual car chases, double-crossing friends and enemies, sneaky employees and unjustly divided lovers, this movie will satisfy your guilty pleasure needs.

Anthony Hopkins and Renne Russo were excellent in this movie. I have never seen Mick Jagger act before so it is hard to judge, I liked his character. This movie was unique, awesome special effects. The greatest cars, It is set in the year 2009 and we dont have those terrific cars yet. I hate to give this movie up cause I would watch this one again and again. Rated R but not as graphic as some movies, most of the blood isnt red, but more of a dark stain. A few F words that automatically make it R. I was borderline on letting my under 13 kids watch it and I dont let my under 17 watch R so it is mild in my opinion. I did decide they couldnt watch it due to the R rating.

Great campy Sci-Fi
Richard C. Drew | Oak Lawn, IL USA | 10/25/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this originally at the movies, picked up the laser disk years ago, and now the DVD. It's one of my favorite campy Sci-Fi flicks. Big name actors in second rate rolls, pretty good special effects, a decent plot. Mick Jagger as a merc with plenty of gadgets and bizarre vehicles is a good opponent to "freejacked" race car driver Emilio Estevez. Estevez is grabbed through time at the moment of death (a freak race accident) - in a practice called FreeJacking. The result is supposed to be a flatlined brain with a healthy body. The wealthy few that can afford this service can then download their own consciousness into the new, young, healthy body. Immortality of a sort. Well, Estevez is not braindead (not in the movie anyway), and winds up as the prize in a power struggle between the two most powerful people on the planet - the #1 and #2 execs at the company that runs the whole FreeJack biz. A fun ride and worth the bucks."
Even "mick" has second thoughs about this one

"i saw this film at the theaters and though it was ok. not great but a nice little sci-fi action movie and the added actraction of mick jagger in it. well years later the place i work was one of the concert dates the stones played, so i got the work the show for free and meet the band. well mick asked the workers after the band thanked us for our hard work if any of us had seen any of his movies and a few of us raised our hands, so he asked if we had seen "freejack" to witch i raised my hand alone. he asked if i saw it at the movies witch i said i did. he then took a $5.00 dollar bill signed it and gave it to me with a sorry for my having wasted my money . he said it read great and they had a great time making it but somewhere it got "F__kup"! i own this movie and it's ok but the $5.00 and the sigiing of it makes this film a little more special to me so enjoy even if mick doesn't!!"
Amazing achievement

"Somehow, it's possible to put Emilio Estevez, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins together in a movie, and get a mediocre result. I didn't know it could be done.

Estevez (as Alex) and Russo (as Julie) are madly in love. She gives him a kiss for luck and he's off in the Formula 1 racer. Next, the car goes airborne, explodes in a ball of flame, and Alex is --

A "freejack," an escaped body, a piece of property. The time travel thingie yanked him out of the car at the last instant, into the future, where his strong young body was harvested to house some aging, sick rich guy (Hopkins). Problem is that Alex isn't through with that body yet. The rest of the movie is a gun battle/chase scene (he's a race driver, remember?) with Mick Jagger as the bounty hunter. Jagger does a fair job of sneering, and it's probably good that he was called on for little else.

Effects are minimal. There are lots of cars and armored vehicles running around, put together with colorful but cheesy effect. There are a few humorous moments, like the nun or the recipe for river rat. There's a happy ending. That's enough to make it passable amusement. If that's all you wanted, it may meet your needs.
