Plot Outline:

Douglas Quaid needs a vacation from reality, and when Rekall offers him that chance, he's happy to take it. Yet something goes terribly wrong, and Quaid finds himself hunted by police led by Chancellor Cohaagen and the only way to break free is to seek out the underground resistance. Along the way Quaid will navigate memory, fantasy and reality to discover his true identity in a world turned upside-down. -- Chris Kavan

The movie may not be great, but it is definitely good. The series of twists and actions, PLUS the unpredictability set the movie apart from other sci-fi action movies.

A mixture of Minority Report technology/settings, Bourne like action sequences and a touch of the original Total Recall. Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) goes to Rekall, a company that implants artificial memories, and was accused of being a spy. His wife, Lori (Kate Beckinsale), tries to kill him after explaining his dillema with the SWAT Team. Quaid encounters Melina (Jessica Biel). The picture lacks depth, humor, emotion, clear plot andstorytelling. On a positive note, the fight scenes and chases were well done. Totall Recall is a fun action sci-fi that is well acted but lacks th charm of its 1990 predecessor.

Total Recall : Beautiful visual and great action

I think that I had a major advantage over many of the people that saw this movie, and that is that I had forgotten most of the old Total recall. I am also capable of keeping an open mind when I see a movie no matter the hype around it. The only thing I expecteded was an action movie, and that is what I got when I saw it at the cinema. Superb visual effects and good acting performances, and a couple of well timed plot twists along the way. There was no doubt who the hero was and allthough you expected, you knew he was gonna win you still rooted for him. That was not the issue, the issue was the journey and how he was going to win. If you can't seperate the two movies that's really not my problem. I saw this movie, I enjoyed it. It was a good movie.

Watch the 1990 version it's better!

If you haven't seen Total Recall yet 2012 or the 1990 version then most definatly go with director Paul Verhoeven's original starring Arnold Schwartznegger as the 2012 version is a very poor carbon coby with a few changes that were not made for the better. I myself am incredibly leery on watching reboots of films and Total Recall is the main reason as to why. The updated storyline is crap with the evil Cohagen this time round wanting to issue a force of his created robots on what's left of the 21st century inhabitants on the two colonies left in the world titled the UFB (United federation of britain) and the colony (Australia) (Stupid idea) . Yep no trip to Mars this time round folks (or like Arnie likes to call it Maaas) In this one director Len Wiseman still used a majority of the sa...

Visually It's Quite Impressive!

A dazzling futuristic sci-fi with jaw dropping realistic visuals and intense shootouts loosely based on the 1966 short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. The story revolves around factory worker Doug Quaid, played by Colin Farrell, who is tired of his boring simple life and decides to go to a program called Rekall, where they promise you a brain-wired, out-of-this-world fantasy while strapped to a chair. Rekall employee McClane (John Cho of Harold and Kumar) convinces Quaid to be implanted with memories of a secret agent. However, something goes wrong, when they discover a neural implant, already placed there, signifying that Doug really is a secret agent.

The sexy and sleek Kate Beckinsale plays Quaid’s wife Lori (think Vampire Kate minus fangs and vampire...

Very disappointing!

Quite disappointing movie. Visually it was stunning, but there was nothing coherent behind the design - if the movie is set on some kind of future Earth, references to current locations were messy and illogical (for an example, I swear I saw Big Ben somewhere during the short metro ride from Wellington) which tells me if director was so careless (and shallow) in these details that could give him more credibility (if he desired that), how can we expect that the movie would be any good at all? Because this was a remake of oh so much better Total Recall from 1990. As a simple brain-dead action sf, movie is OK. For those oblivious it is OK. But as a remake and - what is more important - as a Philip K Dick's story adaptation - it totally fails to deliver the point of the story and of the first...
