Paycheck (2003)

An action film directed by John Woo, starring Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman.
A reverse engineer works for a company for 3 years and then has his memory erased. When he goes to collect his pay, he receives an envelope full of common items and the company people begin to chase him. He had invented a way to see the future and has to alter the future that he saw.
Uma Thurman is cool, but she doesn't make up for Ben Affleck. This is besides the fact that she has trouble picking up an envelope, let alone using any kung fu. I liked the deal about a bunch of ordinary items being used to change the future and the pacing was quick and kept my attention. The style was very "new Hollywood bullshit". I'm rating it o.k. for the balance of good and bad.
