Paul Verhoeven has always managed to make films I either love or utterly detest. This is the latter. Ugly, cheap production design, Gerry Anderson standard effects, ugly gratuitous violence and a plot that makes no logical sense whatsoever. Terrible.

Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger) travels to Mars to discover his real identity. Lori (Stone) is Richter's (Michael Ironside) wife who is an agent sent by Cohaagen to monitor Quaid. A viually impressive sci-fi satire with wonderful settings/costumes for its time. One wil notice likeable character from the protagonists and antagonists alike. It boasts of brutal action adn an innovative screenplay. Total Recall almost has all the elements of an entertaining action sci-fi flick despite some lackluster acting and a few coy moments.

The visuals of the film are interesting, but the execution and uneven pacing of the film is somewhat lackluster. Schwarzenegger makes an unconvincing hero who often comes across as cheesy and the film squanders the more thoughtful portions of K. Dick's book in the adaptation process.

Tight story and direction make for a fast paced, gory and fun sci-fi-action romp. It also contains some good ideas and a healthy amount of twists. The practical effects still impress me to this day.
