It was a good movie not great but good. I cant say i really want to see it again but im glad i saw it the first time. personally i liked it better then the first one and for those who believe that statement is akin to blasphemy please realize that while the old one was great for its time if that version had been released today it would have been a laughing stock. the action and story is good but it seemed to be missing something. still a good movie though

This movie in very different from the first one. It's similarity ends with the planting of the false vacation memories in someone who has already been "programmed". Colin FerrelL is a great lead and there is lots of action. I strongly recommend Total Recall.

Pretty boring for a remake of an iconic film. The actors are just fine, in fact, how nice to have BOTH Kate Beckinsale and especially Jessica Biel chasing Colin Farrell. However, the great wacky actor is trapped in a flat one-note character. The script is utterly dull--both women exclaim the same mild expletive every time something goes wrong-- and the story is sketchy at best. The entire film is a giant set piece that is so derivative of Blade Runner that the set designer must have watch that movie a zillion times before designing this one. My family and I really wanted to love this movie but alas, it was not to be. One last question: "Jessica, where have you been hiding?"

I'm a huge fan of the original. I'm sure i've seen it more than 25 times. I'm sitting here attempting to figure out how I write a review that doesn't make me feel bad about the original film. Yes, the new cast was pretty to look at. The special effects made my brain want to make love to the CGI specialist....and I think that's about all I can say about this film.
Someone must have said, "Now if we remake it, let's have good acting." Who the freak wants to have GREAT ACTING in a science fiction film. Who the freak cares, it's Sci Fiction. We want to see if you can battle the bad guys. We don't want DRAMA! That's down the call in another theater. I think it is actually a remax of Gattica. Don't get any ideas. Next time film makers, get a room filled with fans of the movie and LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY before you start a project like this. BEFORE! There aren't enough characters in this forum to fix this film.

I really liked this movie. It didn't take too long to get to the point and the action was amazing. Not the best movie I've ever seen but definitely worth it.
