PAYCHECK ”What that machine’s doing is what you call a memory wipe,” explains the man in the hot seat, Ben Affleck, who must reassemble three years’ worth of erased recall in December’s sci-fi thriller ”Paycheck,” directed by John Woo (”M: I-2”). Affleck’s computer engineer soon realizes that perhaps he did something terrible during those missing years, and he has to find out what. ”There isn’t a lot of shooting or exploding; it’s more about building suspense,” he says. ”It’s a science fiction movie, but it’s got an old-fashioned style in a weird way, with a John Woo touch, which makes it feel modern and slick and beautiful.”
