Elevator Pitch A dying billionaire seeks help from a shadowy organisation who promise to transfer his conciousness into an artificially grown body, but he finds that in fact the body is that of a young former soldier obtained by the corporation under doubtful circumstances. After finding out the truth he is forced to go on the run with the soldier’s wife and daughter.
Content Opening sequences in the rich man’s apartment (actually owned by Donald Trump). Mind transfer takes place. Much action, at least one car chase and several shoot outs once the family are on the run. No drinking or drugs, no actual nudity but a bit of implied sex.
A View This is lightweight stuff not much liked by the critics but there is a bit of a plot and a moral dilema, which made it watchable for me, and I thought the action sequences were well done although critisized by some. What do they want? So worth watching for nothing.
