Mystery of writing a good sci-fi thriller
It took time to develop Blade Runner into The Final Cut. It took a lot
of time. And, yes, I am actually talking about Paycheck here..
Science-fiction often has the problem of involving complicated
scenarios that need time to explain and very, very careful editing.. Of
course, there are exceptions. A good tag for this movie would be 'If
you could see the future, it would kill you.' But time is the essence
of this story. And I believe, in time, this movie will get better.
Stars Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman do what they do best. There are
endearing moments. But, not enough anticipation built into the motion
picture to prep the viewer. There aren't really any puzzles here,
although there are elements of rudimentary mystery writing -- the
problem is lack of build up. Simply put, details happen too quickly.
The story has more of a Uma Thurman movie to it than a Ben Affleck.
But, it was good to see Ben in a movie that was different.
Unfortunately for Paycheck, the viewer does not have the spectre of
Philip K. Dick to fall back on. Even so, I hope time will be good to

Some trivial errors.
Well, I'm not sure how to write ten lines when I just wanted to point
out several, rather minor "oopses". I really wasn't looking for errors,
just lying in bed, recovering from pneumonia, watching anything but
CNN. First, the key: a BMW motorcycle key is a folding device, it folds
so that it lies flat when in the machine, and not a dangerous
protrusion; and, of course, there is no "button" on it, as Mr. Affleck
was wildly pushing while running around the parking lot. Now, the
second minor curiosity: in the "bag" were nineteen items, the bullet
one of them, of course; but not including a convenient, plastic,
wire-wrap strap; well, I checked my pockets, and it seems that, while I
know I have some in my tool box, I didn't seem to have one on me; but I
guess he did, because it mysteriously appeared so he could attach the
bullet to that canister. Ah, well... And, in concert with that, that
strap is not attached by hand, to secure something with it requires a
tool, which I also have, but again, in my tool box, not my pocket. In
any case, the film was kindly distracting enough to allow me to ignore
my physical discomfort for a while. Albert.
