PaycheckBrilliant computer engineer Michael Jennings routinely has his short term memory erased, so he can't divulge any information about the top secret projects he works on throughout the year.

Critic Reviews of "Paycheck"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
There's a sense of treading water about this movie.San Francisco ChronicleDecember 26, 2003
Without ever quite becoming boring, Paycheck seems to narrow into a routine pattern, and a plot that at first had nuance and the hint of a broader meaning degenerates into chases and standard action.Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionDecember 26, 2003
You may not buy everything about this movie, but you'll likely leave it with a smile.Washington PostDecember 25, 2003
If a movie is going to flout, or at least bend, the laws of the universe, it at least ought to obey its own internal rules.Washington PostDecember 25, 2003
[Woo] still has pretty much of a tin ear for American performances, so he lets Affleck doze through the starring role. The film feels as if it has no center.USA TodayDecember 25, 2003
Though the premise is provocative enough, the execution feels like a host of other violent action-drenched movies.Old School ReviewsMay 14, 2012
Woo's stylish touches fall flat in this forgettable projectCommon Sense MediaDecember 27, 2010
This movie just sags, even in the action scenes.7M PicturesJanuary 09, 2010
It's not necessarily high brow sci-fi, but it is very accessible to the mainstream eye.Movie MetropolisMay 18, 2009
Paycheck takes two hours to watch and two minutes to forget.Groucho ReviewsMay 17, 2009
Playful but inconsequential...the interpretation of Dick's intriguing concept is a street which mostly just dead-ends into noisy silliness. [Blu-ray]ColeSmithey.comMay 11, 2009
"Paycheck" is a no-brainer action movie with just enough sci-fi thematic input to keep it spicy.
