For the first Everything Action Commentary of 2022, Zach and Chris celebrated the 30th anniversary of Freejack by watching the 1992 sci-fi/cyberpunk “classic”(?).
Emilio Estevez stars as Alex Furlong, an F1 race car driver who is teleported the second before his fiery death in a race to the far-off future of 2009. He’s been taken from the past to be used as a vessel for a rich patron who wants to implant his mind into Alex’s body but Alex escapes and becomes a “Freejack”, hunted down through future New York by Mick Jagger and his “Bonejackers”. The guys try to figure out how the teleportation technology works, how often someone becomes a Freejack that there’s a whole term and team of people hunting them down, what movies Freejack borrows from, the anti-aging of Rene Russo, and more. Freejack is on HBO Max and you can sync it up and watch along with the Everything Action crew.

I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
