This weekend's remake of “Total Recall” instead stars Colin Farrell as a factory worker who decides to go on a virtual vacation. But when he allows Rekall - a company that implants clients with fake memories of lives they wish they had led - to mess with his mind, something goes wrong and Farrell’s character finds himself on the run, wondering what is truly reality.
