Total Recall

Synopsis: For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man as he finds himself on the run from the police. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
Which is real, which is made up? What if everything that you believes in turns out to be only a screen? The movie itself is confusing for the first 60 minutes. I cannot make out what is going on as the common factory worker is turned into the No 1 fugitive in the colony. The title does not really fit the theme of the movie as there is minimum recall of any sort. The only consolation is the constant battles with the police forces. Can give this movie a miss unless you have run out of option of what to do for the day.
Rate: 6/10
