Product description

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.

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

This is a difficult one as I have somehow managed to buy two copies of Total Recall (The Arnie version) and while I cannot at all fault the film which still looks fantastic over 20 years on & is a great action film from director Paul Verhoven. With a huge conundrum at its core. Is it all a dream that he requires recall or is his adventure to mars all real?. It's the dvds that are the problem for me. Here I have two copies, one a special edition blu ray with commentary from Schwarzenegger & Verhoven Where they explane the ins & outs of the movie together & provides some interesting insight to the film it also has other features that included. The other blu ray is Just the film nothing else on it & I am a special edition or to be more honest (Commentary fan) I therefore love the special edition & probably will not bother with the sparce edition at all. I don't know how this mix up happened as both pics on the Amazon site have the same (special edition) box featured yet the sparce edition has a slightly different box it features just Arnie's face in blue shade, with no red triagle of flame or mars on it. I dunno who I bought which dvd from either, only that the special edition came first. Oh well never mind. great film that feel younger than it is. it also blows the modern Colin Farrell remake completely out of the water & on it's head.

Originally made 1990, this Arnnie film stands up for itself over the years, a real classic. The run time is 1 hour 48 minutes on this double dvd from Momentum pictures and the extras are worth it for any fan. Some of the fight scenes, on the dvd; appear less cut than what you get from the telly. Perhaps accounting for a longer running time?

Combines Paul Verhoeven's love of violence and social satire.
