It was as I expected. Good movie with the right amount of action in the right places. Got off to a good start but did not tell enough of the back story in the beginning or wrap it up in the end either. It was predictable in spots but overall a good movie. I would see it again.

I loved the original movie and I enjoyed this remake just as much if not more! It's a non-stop action without any drama. It does follow the plot of the original movie very closely with new special effects. All actors are really good in this movie. It achieves the suspension of disbelief very fast and very easy. The smart plot gives legitimacy to the fast pace, which in turn keeps you involved throughout the movie. If you want a good action sci-fi this summer, this is your movie!

If you can get through the constant filth that flows out of their mouth - then you get to the part where the woman bares her chest containing three naked disgusting breasts - I don't know what happened after that because we got up and walked out!

Saw the reboot of Total Recall, and needless to say I was disappointed this movie took itself way too serious. The action was good, but where the hell was the story. Having seen the 1990 Paul Verhoeven version I went in hoping it be an improvement, well it wasn't. This film lacked humor unlike the first one which had humor peppered throughout and I missed Mars and Kuato which was completely absent in this version. The only way I can describe this film is it was a little bit of Blade Runner, IRobot, Minority Report & The Fifth Element. Whatever Director Len Wiseman was going for was lost, actually we don't know what he was going for. Bottom line this film is at best a wait for cable. I'm sorry I paid for this garbage.

THe remake of a Sci- fi classic was very well done. I enjoyed the change of the story line from Mars to Earth. The character build was great. will go and see again.
