I really liked it.
Plenty of sensless violence with eye candy. Complex plot. Not enough gratuitous sex - but not neccessary for the movie to be good. Very good special effects, but I think the car chase scene is overrated.

The new Total Recall is a tremendous remake of a classic flick. All the primary actors turn in stellar performances. Kate Beckinsale is the meanest, sexiest bad girl of recent memory. I enjoyed every minute of this great movie. A Total must see!

I may have had a slightly worse day than normal, but that is beside the point. I can't believe I just lost two hours of my life during this mind-numbing, plotless, sham of an 'action' film. I know it has been out for several weeks now, but my husband, myself, and I think two other people watched to the very end of this horrible project of a 'film.' Three people got up and left in the middle of the movie, I'm figuring to take their nap somewhere else. I never liked remakes anyway...

Big budget action, incredible effects and a good cast can't save this movie. Why you ask? It simply takes itself far too seriously. Don't get me wrong, I will admit I am generally no fan of Colin Farrell. He does a decent job. Kate Beckinsale steals the movie as a raging, tactically efficient combat b*tch (had she performed like this in Underworld series we'd all be better off). Jessica Biel is meh. I digress. The biggest pain of the movie is that it never pauses for a simple laugh or joke. The characters never stop even for a split-second to acknowledge how weird it was that they just had a shootout in zero gravity, or narrowly escaped death for the 15th time. It just keeps pushing the pace, and it's simply not good enough to do that.

Thank you to all of you who lowered my expectation because of your negative comments. It was way above my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie! I don't know how you could walk away from that movie disappointed at all! The action was great, incredible scenary and you didn't feel like any of it was fake or overdone and the acting was superb. Whoever complained that there was too much action isn't really an action film fan. I definitely give this 2 thumbs up!
