Another failure of a remake - Don't bother!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Total Recall (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I wish they would leave the original films alone and not churn up this type of wanton drivel. There was nothing wrong with the original film with Arnie that had it all - a good story, action, humour, originality, guns, gals and everything else.
The acting in this remake is cardboard and some of the lines are spoken like they are reading from a book - no feeling or believability. In places they have copied some key phrases from the original that do not have the same impact. I went through the film (or as much as I could bear) totally bored and realised I was wasting my time. Not many films make me so annoyed that I could not watch any more, despite several attempts weeks apart.
This could of been a great film if they had stuck to the original format and enhanced what was already a great film. They shouldn't have tried to make it into something else and then try to paste bits in from the original and then hope it would have the same impact. A total disappointment.
