Cuba Gooding Jr.,
In a future, private underground prison/Fortress, the inmates are computer controlled with CCTV, dream readers and devices that can cause pain or death. John and his illegally pregnant wife are inside but want to escape before birth.
Auto racer Alex Furlong (Emilio Estevez) is snatched by time travel, a split second before a fatal explosion, by Vasendak's (Mick Jagger's) twenty-first century team of techies, who plan to sell his healthy body to an ailing rich man at McCandless Corporation, for a mind transfer. He escapes, but has no rights in this nightmare future of violence and sleaze. The story concerns his survival, and his attempt to revive his relationship with his fiancée Julie (Rene Russo), now fifteen years older and an executive at McCandless.Written by

I know someone who's trying to bring me in. Goes by the name Vacendak.
[Grabs interviewer's microphone]
Well, I got a special message for you.
[Imitating Arnold Schwarzenegger from Terminator]
Fuck you, asshole!
No one's bringing me in.

Emilio Estevez is on the run in this not-too-futuristic movie about a Gran Prix driver who dies in a crash out on the race course....or did he? Turns out people can be transported into the future where even Coppertone with UVA sunblock 2,000,000 won't save your skin and it's everyone for themselves. Mick Jagger is the man being paid to deliver him to the man who wants Emilio's body.
The first thing I ask myself is whether this movie is believable or not. The answer is possibly. The way our society is going, we are headed for those kind of planetary results. The movie, from the enjoyment side, is not bad (they could have had a better bad guy than Jagger). But it DOES get me to think: "Is this what we're headed for?" Man! I really hope not!
