Movie Review – Total Recall

So, did I enjoy 'Total Recall'? Yeah, yeah I did. It created an interesting and believable world, and I was glad to see it wasn't a remake, as it really took its own path, so felt fresh...ish. But I also didn't think it was as good as the original.

“A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall - a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led - goes wrong and he finds himself on the run.”

It has such formulaic storytelling, with action scene, 5-7 minutes of plot, action scene, and repeat. Also the ending wasn’t as cool and satisfying as the original. That might of course be because it doesn't have anything to do with that films ending, which had eye bursting, mars landscapes and alien technology! But does this film deserve to bomb, which it's doing in the USA right now? No. As it's a good solid sci-fi action film, and it has a girl who has three boobs, which in my eye makes it an instant winner!

B+ From Me!!!
