Product Description

In 21st century Los Angeles an innocent man is convicted for the murder of a young woman and finds himself forced to take part in the government's new, experimental capital punishment program. They plan to transplant his living brain into the dead body of his victim, simultaneously rectifying and punishing him for his crime. The experiment succeeds in part - the girl is brought back to life - but she rejects her new programming and the government schedules her for termination. She manages to escape and soon joins forces with a band of freedom fighters, making their fight her own, but will she ever be able to regain her true identity?

From the Back Cover

LA - 2015 AD. The Life Corporation, a mega-government alliance of the police, judiciary and health branches of the government, has discovered the secret of immortality... Manipulated by corrupt judicial system in order to complete the first phase of an experimental brain transplant, Andre Fuller, and innocent man, is framed and convicted for the murder of a wealthy woman. In a macabre blurring of capital punishment and medical science, Andre's brain is transplanted into the still living (but brain dead) body of the murder victim. Now the creation, Celeste, with the aid of her creator, Dr Munger, escapes the evil clutches of the Life Corporation, and through a series of events, strikes up a reluctant alliance with a group of underground revolutionaries called The Union. Does she try to reverse the transplant and resume the identity of Andre Fuller, or destroy The Life Corporations utopian nightmare.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting SF film marred by poor script 22 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A competently made SF film with an intriging premise: rich people extend their lives by transferring their minds into the younger bodies of poor people. Adding spice to the story is that the first transfer is of a man's mind into a woman's body.
Some good acting makes up for a poorly written script. I enjoyed it and recommended the film to SF fans.
The image is fair: it appears to be a transfer from the original video master and is of broadcast quality with some aliasing at times.
The sound is acceptable with decent effects during action sequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of Sci-Fi 5 July 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm surprised I missed this one. It must have escaped me for some reason! Now that I've come cross it I'm glad I did.

The background to this sci-fi action piece is a dark and corrupt future where the rich live in decadence, the poor organise themselves into a resistance movement, and a group of shadowy individuals loiter in between, selling arms to one to fight the other, and thus profiting through the existence of both.

The premise is that one of these shadowy arms-sellers is tracked and followed to the home of his lover. The woman is shot and killed, whilst he is taken away for memory erasure and some other suggested-at purpose. However, the man wakes up later only to find himself reanimated into his lover's body as part of an experiment.

I really enjoyed this film; the whole premise is great, but a difficult one to act (how would you act, being inside the body of your dead ex?) but the leads pull it off consumately. More good acting is found in the less high-profile roles, including the lead's prison co-inmate; and notably that of the sadistic officer in his patrol vehicle, equipped with its psycho-surgical appliances.

There are one or two twists and turns in the story along the way - though I dare say the storyline could have been tighter in places - so in all the whole film was a well-acted action-packed sci-fi ride.

long story short woman dies, some guy's consious gets put in the womans body. An experient in which people can keep switching bodies and live forever. Why they fought putting a guy in a womans body would work. Who knows? Woman in a another womans body, that makes more sense. What were those muppets thinking. Anyway movie is slightly good if you watch it drunk. I recommend watching another movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watchable but jumbled; Duffy's talent largely wasted 13 Dec 2012
By Neal Stanifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I purchased this film at a VHS clearance sale under the title "Synapse," and for the $5 I paid, I can't honestly say I was disappointed. Karen Duffy is a solid actress and manages to impart a little credibility to a character other actors and directors would have treated as a joke. Perhaps I should explain that her character is essentially a man who has been framed for a murder and sentenced to live out his life in the body of his female victim. There is some unexplained conditioning which apparently takes place off-camera in the early going, but as soon as the character breaks free of her/his conditioning, the film becomes a more standard sci-fi action film, mostly forgettable if not regrettable. Apart from a handful of well-staged and well-performed scenes, the movie is little better than any number of B-movie futuristic action flicks.

The film, I've since learned, was initially based on the softcore transsexual porn novel, Season of the Witch, but I guess it strayed pretty far from its roots. Whether or not that is a loss, you'll have to decide for yourself. I did appreciate a couple of scenes which hint at (but fail to develop) the protagonist's gradual adaptation to her new body. For my money, the film would have been better if Duffy had been given the chance to explore her character's confusion and conflicting emotional states a bit more, even if this came at the expense of the rather ham-fisted action scenes.
