Total Recall

What is real?


Total Recall
This remake of Schwarzenegger's 1990 original, sans the humour, has had mixed reviews. The action is switched from Mars back to Earth. A factory worker decides that what he needs for a break is to have false memories of his life as a super-spy implanted into his brain. The procedure does not go well, and before we know it, he is a hunted man on the run from the police. Expect plenty of action and CGI effects.

119 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 13 (Language, Violence).

Justin Lowe quote iconThe outcome is engaging enough but not entirely satisfying.

Kate Erbland quote iconNothing worth pondering... or recalling
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconTotal Recall is well-crafted, high energy sci-fi. Like all stories inspired by Philip K. Dick, it deals with intriguing ideas. It never touched me emotionally, though, the way the 1990 film did, and strictly speaking, isn't necessary.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThis Total Recall will make you feel robbed as well. It's two hours you'll never get back and every minute is a bad memory.

Tomatometer quote iconWhile it boasts some impressive action sequences, Total Recall lacks the intricate plotting, wry humor, and fleshed out characters that made the original a sci-fi classic.
