OUR resident film expert Gavin Miller gives you the lowdown on the latest blockbuster movie release.

TOTAL RECALL (12A): Colin Farrell takes over the role of Douglas Quaid – which Arnie Schwarzenegger made famous in the early nineties – in this reboot of the franchise. When a procedure to turn Quaid’s dreams into real thoughts at brain-implant company Rekall goes horribly wrong, his mind-trip starts to bring back memories of his past as a super-spy – and he goes on the run to find out his true identity. But sadly this version has been a box office flop Stateside despite a very encouraging trailer, heavy marketing campaign and presence of female duo Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Expect nothing more than a two or three-star experience.
