I'm trying to identify a movie I saw, but can't remember any part of the title
I don't know when it was released but it is not recent. It was in color and American English. Time period hard to drtermine, but mostly the recent past.
Movie starts out in a pleasant suburb with the protagonist (played by one of the current Hollywood pretty-boys) driving a vintage car. The protagonist had a metal plate in his head and started seeing flashes of a dystopian world.
At some point he also gets flashes that objects are imprinted with bar-codes looking like "Generic" groceries.
He then sees men in radiation suits abducting someone to take them to "The City". He follows and finds the city is occupied by self-important managers & executives. He then discovers that "The City" is also a virtual world and finds himself in the Dystopia. His father is badly burned and has an artificial leg & voice box.
He then discovers that the Dystopia is a third virtual reality. The real world is neither utopia nor dystopia. It is merely bland. The various VR's are created by a computer that broadcasts them to people's minds and the Bar codes assist in identifying which items should be overlaid by the VR.
