I kept thinking about the original film while watching this one. To put it simply: Arnold was better than Colin Farrell. Kate Beckinsale in the expanded role is better than Sharon Stone, and I really love them both. Jessica Biel is better than anyone, if you don't believe me, ask her. What I really liked about this film is the updated special effects, down to the electronic notes on the refrigerator door. I love attention to detail.

The action was fast paced. The future looks similar to "The Fifth Element" but with more computer gizmos. If you have seen the original version, then you can miss the first few minutes of this one and be able to pick it up.

For some reason they eliminated all the fun aspects of going to Mars. That is why we watched the first film. Instead we get a film where we simply root for the terrorists. The terrorists are revolting against the Chancellor who wants to replace workers with synthetics, although this theme was poorly developed.

One of the aspects of both productions that I didn't like was the initial dream sequence. Had they eliminated that from both films, then the genius of the script would have been the ambiguity of reality vs. the recall machine.

The film included 3D holograms, Star Wars stormtroopers, Bill Nighy for a brief moment, and an inadvertent mention of an old film "Hauser's Memory."

What I didn't like about this film was all the action. It didn't have drama scenes outside of the beginning. No colorful characters. No time for a Biel/ Farrell love scene. It was like watching someone play a video game. Seriously, where was the writing? The clever lines? The complex character? The relationship? Any moron can write "Bang bang, run shoot, bang, chase, shoot, bang."

Parental Guide: F-Bomb, Nudity (Kaitlyn Leeb wearing a fake chest) no sex. 3 stars is pushing it. Can't wait for the video game.

Just in case you didn't know, there was once a book called 'We can remember it for you wholesale', which was made into a movie in 1990 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was called Total Recall and was very popular. It was about a man called Douglas Quaid who pays to go on a virtual holiday as a spy to Mars, but as they're implanting the spy memory, they discover he's already a spy. Cue lots of running around on Mars, alien artefacts and literally eye popping special effects.

For this remake we fast forward (cough) twenty two years and now Colin Farrell is Quaid, Len Wiseman (Underworld, Die Hard 4) is directing and Kate Beckinsale is reprising the famous role of Quaid's wife. A mouth watering prospect with Farrell an action star who really can act. Wiseman really knows his action and we all know what Beckinsale can do in leather hotpants.

Visually Total Recall (2012) is stunning. It is one of the richest and deepest realised futuristic worlds I've ever seen. It pulls heavily on Blade Runner and Minority Report but carves a distinctive, grittier feel of its own. A superb backdrop for what turns out NOT to be a remake of the original movie but a re-imagining of Philip K. Dicks original story. There is no Mars here, no eye popping effects or ancient artifacts. Quaid now works in a factory building synthetic police, a job he commutes to across the planet in a shuttle that literally flies through the centre of the earth. But at night Quaid isn't sleeping, he dreams of being chased. When he goes to Recall the real memories are realised and mayhem ensues, practically non-stop to the final credits.

Fans of popular movies are always skeptical whenever their favourite movies are remade. For me it's never really been an issue, as the fans of the orginal will always have the original film there to watch even if they don't like the remake. While the remake of Total Recall is definately not on the level of the orginal, it's certianly a fun and entertaining movie that's cetianly worth a look at.
Colin Farell makes a likeable lead as Douglas Quaid, a seemingly normal man who discovers he may not be what he seems after attending the Total Recall programme which reveals his true past. Kate Beckinsale is acutally better in the role of Quaid's 'wife' than Sharon Stone from the orginal and is more believable in her performances. Jessica Beil even gives a likeable perromance as the women who Quaid has been dreaming about and who may hold the truth to Quaid's identity.
True, this version of Total Recall often feels lie, a combination of many great Sci-Fi movies, particularly Blade Runner and the story is pretty predictable especially if you've seen the orginal movie, but it's still entertaining and you won't feel like you've wasted a couple of hours after watching it.

The introduction showed subtitles in German for text on the screen, then they disappeared. Still can't work out why? I really like the film, and the little homages made to the original 'Two weeks!'

But it still lacked a lot, visually, it's outstanding but the lead good v evil, Cohegan and Matthias were empty and I love Bill Nighy films but they didn't use him enough. Not enough mutants either... "I've got fiiiiive kids to feed!"
