Paycheck is a 2003 action movie directed by John Woo and based on a Philip K. Dick short story of the same name. Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck) has just undergone a memory wipe after reverse engineering a product for the Allcom Corporation. The CEO of Allcom, James Rethrick (Aaron Eckhart), hires Jennings and he begins to live on the Allcom compound. There Jennings meets Dr. Rachel Porter (Uma Thurman) and the two fall in love. Upon completion of the product, however, Jennings' memory is wiped. Also unfortunate for Jennings is that he declined his paycheck before his memory wipe and only left himself with a few mysterious seemingly useless items. He soon learns that he has left a trail of evidence for himself to follow and the items are the key. He must then use these items to escape from the FBI and figure out what his own clues mean.
