Reviews

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

Product Description

Doug Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a happily married construction worker living in the year 2084, is haunted by a recurrent dream in which he is living with a woman on Mars. Rekall Incorporated offer him the chance to live out his dream through a microchip which implants any memories their client desires into their brain. But something goes wrong during the installation of Quaid's memories of a trip to Mars and soon he lands up on the planet for real, unsure of his true identity and pursued by a gang out for his blood. He teams up with a group of resistance fighters to uncover a mystery which leads to the highest echelons of the planet's government.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars quality sci-fi 26 April 2013
By Eddie
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "See You At Da Party Richter" 22 Feb 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER

Trivia.
1)Christopher Reeve was approached to play Doug Quaid but turned it down.
2)Jeff Bridges, Matthew Broderick & Richard Dreyfuss were all considered for the part of Doug Quaid.
3)Body count 77.
4)Ronny Cox also appeared in Robocop again directed by Paul Verhoeven.

6)Sharon Stone impressed Paul Verhoeven so much in this movie he cast her in his next movie Basic Instinct.
7)Sharon Stone posed nude in Playboy to coincide with this movie's release (Anyone got a spare copy?).
8)Originally Dino De Laurentis was going to produce this with Patrick Swayze starring as Doug Quaid but the company went into bankruptcy & Arnold Schwarzenegger then managed to persuade Carolco to purchase the movie right's for a movie vehicle for him to star in.
9)Remade in 2012 with Colin Farrell as Doug Quaid but is a far inferior 12a remake.

Review.

In the near future.

When happily married construction worker Doug Quaid has dreams & images of another life on Mars he visits Rekall a virtual reality holiday vacation company that implant your wildest dreams & fantasies into your subconscious to allow them to become a reality.

But something goes wrong during the implantation & Doug is targeted by his former friend's as they try & kill him but Doug kills them & upon returning home his wife Lori also tries to murder him.

Turns out Doug is actually named Hauser a secret agent who is fighting the evil Mars Administrator Cohaagen who has become a powerful dictator ruling over the planet Mars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered Total Recall - Triple Play Blu-ray 19 July 2012
By Dr T
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Finally a worthy Blu-ray transfer for the excellent film, Total Recall. Previously the US (import) edition had less noise reduction but muted colours; the UK edition had stronger colours and sharper contrast, but heavy-handed noise reduction that resulted in 'smearing' in various places - particularly in the outdoor Mars scenes towards the end of the film. By and large this transfer bests the best of both these previous transfers. On no-FX scenes the picture is very sharp, retains grain, and has nice colour. Some problematic softness and slight trails persist on FX shots where layers have been used in the original. However they come across nowhere near as bad as the previous UK release. It seems they trace back to the original processes and may be impossible to fix - without completely recreating them (like was done for the original Star Trek TV series).

The sound is good, with clear dialogue and strong presence during action scenes - although the mix, by today's standards, is rather sparse in places so the action moments can rather blast out here and there.

If you are buying this on the strength of the commentary with Verhoven and Schwarzenegger, think twice! I've only listened to a portion of it so far, but insightful it isn't! For the most part, it's Verhoven and Schwarzenegger telling you what's happening on the screen (e.g. Arnie, 'this is where I'm taking the bug out of my nose'). Still given Arnie's character it's amusing enough - in a rather surreal way - and there's some filming info throughout about how the film was actually made. The 'making of' seems reasonable, and looks like it was made around 1990. It has interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and so on. There's also a newer interview with the Director and various other bits and pieces.
