The Canadian film Recall was released on June 25, 2019. Mikey (Michael James Regan) talks his stepbrother Dale (Tommy James Murphy) into pulling one last hit. Unfortunately, Mikey is a cocaine addict and their target is the Mafia. There is a backstory about Dale’s girlfriend’s murder which doesn’t do much for the story.
The acting was fairly decent, but everything else was bad. I have a theory: if the lead actor(s) in a movie is/are also a producer, executive producer, writer, editor, and director of a film then I have low expectations for the film. This mainly is true if the actor and/or director are not well known. There are a few, I admit, that does not follow this premise. This film was, thankfully, only 72 minutes long, but it took 25 minutes to get to the crime scene. There were some good action scenes but there was also foul language.
I would not recommend this film to anyone. It needed a lot of work. Some of the actors were good, i.e. the actor who played the Mafia Don was very good. I have to give this only 2 stars out of 5.
