From Amazon.co.uk

Total Recall, director Paul Verhoeven's mega-budget sci-fi action blockbuster from 1990, began its production life as a very different movie. An adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale", it was originally conceived of with Richard Dreyfuss starring as a Walter-Mitty-like character who experiences a variety of artificially induced fantasies. But with Arnold Schwarzenegger on board, the final version took a rather different direction. The Austrian Oak plays a normal working man who discovers his entire reality has been invented to conceal a scheme for planetary domination on Mars. Oscar-winning special effects and violent action propel the twisting plot, in which Arnold manipulates his manipulators in a world of dazzling high technology. Verhoeven (Robocop, Starship Troopers) indulges his usual penchant for gratuitous bloodshed, but the movie has enough cleverness to rise above its excesses. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

On the DVD: Not many extras, but excellent picture and sound. The reds of Mars are a terrific way of testing your television's colour definition in this digital transfer. Combine that with testing your speakers in the opening scene to Jerry Goldsmith's pounding score boosted to Dolby 5.1, and what an ideal home cinema demo disc this is! Two trailers show the way a film should and shouldn't be advertised, since the teaser gives nothing away but the main advert tells you everything. A seven-minute behind the scenes featurette with cast interviews and on-set action rounds out the extras package. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

now, if i was having a trip to Mars, with super-spy save-the-planet shenanigans implanted directly into my brain and i didn't get to not only see Sharon Stone's norks but play with them as well i would be very unhappy and demand my credits back. thats the only reason this brilliant Arnie film doesn't get 6 stars. it does have, however, 3 mutant boobages "baby, you make me wish i had 3 hands!!!" i saw this film 8 times at the cinema when it first came out because me and the lads used to get hammered and go every week and the alternatives at the time were "Another 48 Hours" or something equally awful. we loved it every time. and even today it has a lovingly gratuitous, garish idiocy to it. don't watch the re-make it is so bad it makes me angry.

I remember going to see this at the pictures on its original release and was firstly blown away by the title sequence and music.The film itself was a perfect vehicle for Arnie, who at that time was the biggest star on the planet( Earth, not Mars),and he was riding a wave of great films, Commando, Predator etc.
Recall is just one big thrill ride of a sci fi movie, based on the short story by Philip K Dick, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale although truth be told, nothing like the short story, which you SHOULD read.
Recall had some of the latest technology available at hand, which with what can be done today looks dated.For me, that is its charm.Recall is still quite violent in parts, but never lags in pace from the get go.The remake with Colin Farell is a shadow of this classic.The blu ray is nice and sharp and certainly an improvement over the dvd.
So if you love sci fi, action, violence and Arnie , then this is for you . Obviously Arnie has a great fondness for this movie as he named his biography Recall, although that was probably a marketing ploy.Talk about schizoid embolisms!!Sheesh!!

I see this product has one review by a sadly misguided soul who thinks this is a bad grainy transfer. First of all, this is the same transfer as the excellent HD DVD version, also the pitch problem has been fixed too. I had owned the US artisan release on Blu-ray prior to this and this is a big improvement on that transfer. The disc is coded region A,B. The sound is 5.1 DTS HD master audio. Due to the lack of any extras it misses the final star for my review. However, in terms of image and sound quality, This is the best version available of this cracking film.

TOTAL RECALL (1990), a big-budget sci-fi action thriller set sometime in the future, stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, (TERMINATOR). It's based on "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale," a short story by the noted sci fi author Philip K. Dick, was penned for the screen by Ronald Shusett, and was directed by Paul Verhoeven. It boasts a high-quality score by Jerry Goldsmith. And it's as easy to like as its affable, hugely muscular star, who, we know, has gone far in real life, too.

The film's set in Mexico City future, and on the famously red planet, Mars, where they've found something worth mining, leading to its colonization from Earth. Unfortunately, however, the planet has no atmosphere, thus no oxygen: all settlers and tourists must stay within an immense dome, and pay the local administration for air. Schwarzenegger plays Douglas Quaid, supposedly an ordinary earthly construction worker, though married to the beauteous young Lori (Sharon Stone, CASINO). But Quaid is actually a recently brainwashed incarnation of Hauser, who was a big man on Mars as an administration spy. Quaid dreams of the red planet, and is so strongly drawn back there that he goes to a firm called Rekall, that implants pleasant memories, of whatever virtual vacation a client might select, in the subject's brain. But Quaid pays extra to virtually vacation as a spy, in cahoots with Melina, the sleazy-demure girl(Rachel Ticotin, MAN ON FIRE, CONAIR) he's chosen from the book. Problems arise, and Quaid must beat it back to Mars.

Verhoeven is a good action director -- he also gave us ROBOCOP-- and he's got a down and dirty Dutch touch. Sets are good: neither Mars, nor the city of the future, has too much of a cardboard look.

Format: DVD
It's like a nightmare out of Kafka: everything you can remember is false, and everything you think you know about your life is a lie. Such is the dilemma at the heart of "Total Recall," which also has the honor of being one of the best movies Arnold Schwarzenegger has ever made. A lot of this comes from the plot, which is full of memorable twists and clever plotting -- not to mention the glorious depiction of a futuristic Mars.

Every night, Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger) is haunted by a dream of Mars and a strange woman (Rachel Ticotin). He even wants to visit Mars, but his wife Lori (Sharon Stone) is reluctant. After all, Mars is going through a nasty rebellion at the moment. On impulse, Quaid decides to go to Rekall, a company that implants false memories for entertainment, and selects a "secret agent" fantasy on Mars.

But things instantly go very wrong when he has a convulsive reaction, and ends up dumped in a taxi. As he tries to get home, his coworkers all try to kill him -- and at home, Lori also tries to murder him, revealing that their entire marriage is a false memory.

Quaid goes on the run, with only a cryptic message from his former self to guide him. But even if he can get to Mars and avoid being captured by Lori and the cops, he has to find the mysterious Melina (who turns out to be the lady from his dream). And as he seeks out the mysterious leader of the Resistance, Quaid finds that there may be things in his past he doesn't want to remember...

"Total Recall" doesn't stick very closely to Philip K. Dick's original story, but it doesn't shame it either.
