Updated look, bad rewrite

Loved the updated look and forward looking tech, but the rewrite of the storyline was awful. And boy was it loud. We went to the Lowes at 84th street in Manhattan and suddenly I thought I should call the EPA for sound violation.

Good because of Colin Ferrell and visuals- but more like a remake of Bourne

Colin Ferrell is very charismatic in this action first, second and last film. The whole Inception kind of dream/reality blur is minimal. The visuals for flying cars, weightlessness, the look of the city and a realistic looking set of technology are all excellent, but at it's core is who am I. And the answer is a high-flying butt-kickier Bad guy Brian Cranston is lame, but Kate Beckisndale can ramp it up. We had fun.

I liked the Earlier version

The special effects was profound, but the acting was not all that dynamic. In the first version, Arnold and the other characters were phenomenal, in spite of the lack of effects in the present version.

Total Recall - Total Action

Does not stray from the original too much. The leading ladies definitely steal the show. If you enjoyed Blade Runner, IRobot and 5thElement, you will enjoy the movie alot.

MUST SEE for the sci fi fan!

GReat Move. This was a nicely created re-work of the classic original. The twists that were added actually improved on the "believability" over the original. THere was enough difference, actually, to qualify it as a totally different movie. The story line kept moving very well. The elevator scene had me holding my breath even. Definately two thumbs up!
