Awesome & surprisingly original!
on 31 May 2015
I know it looks dated now, but I was a great fan of the original & a little less than pleased that they had re-made it. What was the point I thought? The first wasn't that long ago that we'd forgotten, & albeit a good film, I wouldn't say it was an all time classic that just "had" to be re-made! However, after a recommendation from my son I decided to "get over it" & give the new one a chance. Very very glad I did, it is awesome. Totally different story, but made around the same premise of having your mind "altered" at Recall, now "Rekall" for the modern era! With a few nods to the original, it managed to give us a whole new, brilliant story, with astounding graphics & some really epic moments! So, if like me, you're on the fence about this one, not feeling the need to "totally recall" quite so soon after the original, just go for it, you won't be disappointed & you may even be very pleased you did! I'll certainly be watching it again!
