Only thing missing is a cameo appearance of The Governator SchwarZenEgger! The special effects are definitely way better than the 1990 original; but should have kept the original storyline on traveling to Mars theme, especially with NASA's Curiosity Mars Science Lab robot landing coming up! Overall, the action and special effects make this movie a MUST see with friends, family or ignificant other!

Had I not seen the oringinal, i would have liked the movie more, It closely scripted to the first, then seperated. The visuals reminded me of Blade Runner. But the action was too much to take and so much violence then the first movie with the Gov.
It had great visual effects but that a movie does not make.I was at the 2:30 showing in NYC and movie house was almost full.
Go see it if you want. I was only inmpressed by the visuals not the script

Total Recall was not worth the money. I can not recall the last time I saw such a bad remake. Not even close to the original story and acting was not all the best. There were some good action sequences that were decent but not well enough to keep the movie going at the same pace. The "1990" version was to smart and had better dialogue. I see nothing with this "2012" version to recall.

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 love the original, and was very excited to see the remake. I must say that I enjoyed it very much. It's a great action movie, just wish it were rated R.
