Total Recall

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Sometime in the future, the earth has become unlivable except for two vast overpopulated cities, the United Federation of Britain where all the wealthy people live and the impoverished Colony. A factory worker living in the latter, Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) is unhappy with his life but he's not sure why, because he's happily married to a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale).

  • Conclusion: Total Recall , 2012's most frustrating movie, gets so much right but doesn't ever fully come together under its own power. It's a film in the midst of a terrible identity crisis, a remake largely in name only that tries to be so different from its predecessor but at the same time take advantage of every opportunity to remind viewers of the other, superior production.

Total Recall

BluRay Authority
17 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Summer of 1990 had a few event movies: Ghost was one, Dick Tracy was another and even Days of Thunder had some buzz.  But before he was Governor Ah-nuld, Mr. Schwarzenegger was in prime form in action movies.  But…wait.  Wrong movie.  Or is it?  Based on the novel “We Can Remember it for you Wholesale” Total Recall might actually be one of the most interesting of Phillip K.

Total Recall (2012) (Mastered in 4K)

High-Def Digest
16 May 2013
  • Conclusion: In Len Wiseman's recall of Paul Verhoeven's violent cult favorite, audiences can be mesmerized by the beautiful design of a futuristic nightmare of the wealthy haves and the impoverished have-nots. Full of thrills-a-minute action and spectacular CG wizardry, 'Total Recall' is decent popcorn entertainment feigning some smarts, but it's ultimately another mindless display of explosions that only scratches at the surface of intriguing ideas.

  • Conclusion: In Len Wiseman's recall (I know, corny) of Paul Verhoeven's violent cult favorite, audiences can gaze and be mesmerized by the beautiful design of a futuristic nightmare of the wealthy haves and the impoverished have-nots. Full of thrills-a-minute action and spectacular CG wizardry, 'Total Recall' is decent popcorn entertainment feigning some smarts, but it's ultimately another mindless display of explosions that only scratches the surface of intriguing ideas.

Total Recall (2012) Review

DoBlu
20 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Total Recall’s lighting is terrible. As the film opens, Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) awakes in a room with more flickering florescent than a techno club. As the world comes into larger view, devastated by global chemical warfare, the lens flares become characters in and of themselves. In 2009, J.J. Abrams made an unpopular statement about lens flares with his Star Trek reboot.

  • Summary: Visually, the 2012 remake is better than the original, with interesting set and background designs, decent enough futuristic vehicles, and superb special effects. The plot is another story.
