Total Recall [2012] Description

Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

  • Missed the mark

    This movie clearly had a big budget behind it, the vfx were stunning, and it boasted a slew of big name actors. Somehow though it fell short for me. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the film, and didn't mind spending my money on the ticket or the refreshments. Thing is, though the original was drenched in cheese, it also had a feeling of adventure and this new movie lacked it. Oddly enough it's more believable that we can get to Mars than it is that we drill through the earths core, and the mutants struggling for air is far less preachy than the political agenda of .... Oh look the human race over populated and then destroyed each other and earth.
  • Clever

    This movie is a different take on the original using a post apocalyptic Earth rather then the Red planet as their background. Don't be fooled by similarities to the original this movie is very different in the end. The movie is overall a very enjoyable experience don't let the negative reviews scare you away those people were looking for a carbon copy of the original.
  • Avoid!

    Good casting, some decent fx, but the changes to the original story line was horrible. This movie is a real stinker. Avoid at all costs!

    Awesome & Incredible! Kate, Colin, Jessica & Brian Rocked In this Explosive Mind Bending Action Masterpiece Reboot Of the Original. The Special Effects teams were Flawless in bringing this Remake of Total Recall a new Name & How FX Effects Are to be done! Director Len Wiseman is a Directing Genesis, Len Is An Amazing Talent; Len Has Been the Genesis Behind Some the best Movies ever to be Filmed. Films Like The Underworld Series witch is one of the best Vampire Franchise ever to be filmed Next to the Blade Vampire Franchise With Wesley Snipes, Hopefully A fifth installment of the Underworld franchise will be coming soon. Kate Beckinsale Is Married to Len Wiseman She is truly A beautiful woman with an amazing Acting talent. Len Wiseman Also Resurrected the Die Hard Series Staring Bruce Willis & Maggie Q who rocked in CW Nikita With The final Installment Premiering in November, the 22 2013 On The Amazing TV Network CW. When Len Wiseman Resurrected the Die Hard Series He brought new life To the Franchise and Directed the Best Die Hard Movie Out of all the Installments. Len Wiseman Has also been part Of some of the best Movies ever made, Like Independence Day With Will Smith Stargate With Kurt Russell & Godzilla with Mathew Broderick With The Principle Director Roland Emmerich Another Truly Gifted Film Maker. In Short Len Wiseman Is Truly Amazing He Brings The Magic Of film making a truly Awesome Experience to watch!
  • Not Actually a Remake

    Aside from a handful of details like character names... This remake is is a failure. The makers of this redux missed the whole point of the original... Which was the carefully crafted way in which it never quite resolves whether the entire adventure is just the planted memory of Quaid's paid for "vacation". Despite the apparent ending of the original... The viewer is left with the suspicion that that is precisely the ending that would be expected from a "scripted" recall experience... They had the chance to really make a far more nuanced and menacing version of that plot... But opted for the more superficial. And the tunnel thru the center of the earth thing was so silly.. Their attempt to 'refresh' the story by introducing some new kind of isolation for the 'colony' was ridiculous in its obviousness as an excuse for FX that did not add to the storyline in any way.
