Saw this recently on a DVD. A decent serial killer film with a dash of sci fiction.The film is about this new technology where one can remove unwanted memories at a cost. This new procedure is not approved by majority of the nations. Our lead character who is on the verge of divorce, goes to center to remove his memories of his marital life n he succeeds. At the center, a commotion n shootout happens n our guy drops his deleted memories which is in some box. No prize for guessing what happens next as it is already mentioned in the synopsis. Later the wife tells our lead to get back his memories before she signs the divorce papers as she wants to tell something important. The guy goes back n retrieves his memories but as it was quite predictable during the shootout, our guy's memories have been swiped. He now has the memories of a serial killer inside his brain. He is later put into a lock up (the same glass one from Silence of the lambs where Hopkins was put) for assaulting the director of the center blaming him for the wrong memories n not realizing that it got swiped during the commotion. Now the killer has our guy's memories n our guy is worried that his wife is in danger. Our guy is helped by a cop n his junior to track down the killer before its too late. The acting n direction was decent. The movie moved at a decent pace except for some scenes in the lock up n during the middle. Don't expect a fast paced thriller. Our lead guy is not some ex military or ex government intelligence. Ther r no fast paced chases, shoot outs, fights, car chases. May find shades of Minority report, Total recall, Solace.
