Total Recall (2012) 
Very disappointing!
1.5/4 stars

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 movie.

The story is really short and in my opinion funny, takes only a couple of minutes to read :) Verhoeven got the point of the story and presented it masterfully - at the end we are not certain was it all real (memory) or just an implanted dream (my take) - which Wiseman either didn't understand or didn't know to put well in the movie.

Brain-dead action sf movie - yeah, that pretty much sums up my experience. Even though I got to see it early for free, it was a letdown. I should really track down the original story and read it, considering I am a sci-fi fan. I'll put it on my list of things to do (eventually).
