4.0 out of 5 stars A good remake
This review is for the Blu-Ray version. Amazon have a habit of adding reviews from one format under that of another. Therefore comments of quality of picture and sound may not be applicable for other formats.

It is rare that I get to like a remake of a film, sometimes it works well, other times the film industry are just milking the theme. In this case I think...

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected but still not as good as it needs to be
Despite low expectations and a lacklustre marketing campaign that made it look cheap, the 2012 remake of Total Recall turns out to be a surprisingly spectacular and initially enjoyable chase movie, albeit one that won't stop your interest from wandering. While it creates a more vividly layered world for its characters to chase through than the 1990 film (albeit one that...

4.0 out of 5 stars Of course it is nonsense but it is a great futuristic action film with really fantastic scenes and graphics, 1 Sep 2014
I thought this was going to be trash but was pleasantly surprised. Sure, if you are looking for something intellectual then forget it. Of course it is nonsense but it is a great futuristic action film with really fantastic scenes and graphics, good enough actors and a lovely nod to Bladerunner. Arnie was always an awful actor in the first movie and the effects just weren't up to what that film demanded back then.

Anybody who tries to take this film seriously is on to a loser. It doesn't try to be serious and it makes this clear as soon as it mentions an elevator through the core of the Earth!

Just as good as the original film if not better, but very nicely different.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review - Sound Borked - Avoid, 25 Dec 2012
This review is from: Total Recall (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2012] (Blu-ray)
I would like to have been able to write a review of the movie but sadly the Blu-ray version of the movie is unwatchable. After about 20 minutes there was a sound dropout, after which the lipsync progressively deteriorated until the sound was running about 10 seconds behind the picture. This persisted whether watching on the home cinema amp or just through the TV speakers. We had read previously this was a problem when hardware chained through HDMI leads so switched to optical, but still the same problem.

Hopefully Sony will do a Recall (ha) but if you must watch the movie I would suggest stick with the DVD until they sort a new master of the Blu-ray out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film, 24 Oct 2012

Darbi09 "Luke" (Surrey, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Total Recall (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2012] (Blu-ray)
Although underrated, I watched this film a day after I watched the original and in my opinion this film took the original, changed the weird bits and made it a much better film- more enjoyable, breathtaking effects, and a good overall product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different to the Arnie classic but fun!, 30 Sep 2014
By 
T. Pearman "6079" (Haddenham , England) - See all my reviews

I liked this film... Its a shame it got panned... Its a completely different version of the story and should not be compared to the Arnie classic...
If you like cool science fiction gadgets and CGI then its all here.

My only gripe is the same with all movies like this.. the bad guys cant shoot straight and its amazing how much fighting you can do without getting injured and yer make up isn't out of place....

In short good fun but NOT A REMAKE OF THE ARNIE ONE!!
