Totally boring

I don't know how or why, but for a film with soooooo much action, so many cool looking set pieces, running, jumping, bang bang, shouty bang gun bang chase me bang gun etc etc etc, it is strangely unengaging. Just yawn...

High-End Science Fiction Promises

Movie Review: "Total Recall" (2012)

Director Len Wiseman takes on the 1990 smash hit "Total Recall" based on a short story by mystified science-fiction author Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger directed by Paul Verhoeven, navigates not-fully-activated actor Colin Farrell through a maze of partially working scenes of high-scale action captured by cinematographer Paul Cameron, who delivers some amazing camera motions with a newly-rigged railing camera system, especially after the main character's second high-conceptual awakenings in a Asian-flavored "Rekall Center", which hardly finds its pace into this unless promising science-fiction movie remake.

The event movie features a great ensemble cast including Jessica Biel as fighting-spirited character of Melina, Kate Beckinsale as viciously-twisting wife of leading character Quaid and a fully-aware out of a "Breaking Bad" season intermission actor Bryan Cranston as enterprising nemesis-character of Cohaagen, when a major scenario change from the surface of Mars in "The Schwarzenegger Version" gets exchanged for an massive underground transportation system called "The Fall" connecting first-class maintenance with an revolution-provoking economy living environment, which seems to be a daring choice for a compellingly-remade story-line.

But then again "Total Recall" (2012) produced by Neal H. Moritz, known for "The Fast and The Furious" movie series, falls short when hitting conclusions due to equally bloodless as endless "I, Robot" (2004) shoot-out interventions, when the original movie adaptation from 1990 had been feeling into organic as accessible character relations exploding into hard-core conflicts for the matured spectre.

Actings good but what happened to the story ?

The original was good (despite Arnie's wooden acting) being original and it did have a coherent story.

Total ReKall is yet another remake by the chimp script writer committee.

Yes they added a 'K' in total 'rekall' . How I bet everyone slapped themselves on the back for that original and ground breaking idea.

Other than that it's like they drew up a list of all the best parts of the original film/story and then discarded them or so diluted them as to be meaningless.

The shame is Farrell and Beckinsale worked really well in the roles, shame they didn't have a script to match their talents.

Yet another 2nd class remake (in an ever growing long list of trash remakes) where CGI and action scenes (very similar to the action scenes we have seen in so many films )

Another lack lustre nondescript remake that failed to live up to expectations or even comparison with the original
