Total RecallTotal Recall
The remake of Total Recall never escapes the shadow of its Arnold Schwarzenegger-led predecessor — and, strangely, it feels like a choice. With a script that's nearly beat-for-beat the original film, Total Recall plods along with enhanced special effects that bring to life an expansive sci-fi world and action scenes constructed to send eyes flipping backwards into skulls. Colin Farrell as Douglas Quaid, is a down-on-his-luck factory worker hoping to escape his stagnate existence with a boost from Rekall, a company capable of engineering fake memories. Quaid calls the damp slums of 'The Colony' home (one of two inhabitable parts of Earth), but he dreams of moving to the New Federation of Britain, a pristine metropolis on the other side of the planet. When the futuristic treatment goes awry – caused by previously existing memories of our blue collar hero's supposed past life as a secret agent – Quaid emerges from Rekall with lethal power hidden under his mild-mannered persona. He quickly goes on the run, escaping squads of soldiers, robots, and his assassin wife, Lori (Kate Beckinsale) all hot on his tail. Total Recall turns into one long chase scene, as Quaid unravels the mystery of his erased memories.
The action is slick, and the futuristic design is impeccable, but without any time devoted to building the stakes, Total Recall feels more like a HDTV demo than a thrilling blockbuster.
