Movie Review: "Total Recall" (2012)



So they decided to remake the 1990 action classic Total Recall, and update it for 2012.

This new Total Recall stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale.

Better special effects? Of course.

Better story? Debatable.















I'm not gonna lie, some things are much improved in this remake -- particularly the acting. However, some things just don't add up, and since I'm not one for spoilers I'll just leave it at that.

I did appreciate the nods to the original sprinkled throughout the movie, particularly the lovely lass with an extra mammary (THREE BREASTS, DUDE!).

You know, maybe I would have enjoyed this movie more had I never seen the original (and given it another 1/2 a point), but Kate's character had to have had super-speed to do some of the things she did.

Bottom-line, this is a LATE NIGHT AND BORED movie.

QBF Rating: 2.5/5

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
