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.

Do yourself a favor - spend $2 and rent the original 1990 flick with Arnold, Sharon Stone, Rachel Ticotin, Michael Ironside, and Ronny Cox. Each of the 1990 actors does a better job than their 2012 equivalent, although I have to admit that Kate Beckinsale does make a better agent than Sharon Stone (but Sharon was so hot in those days it's hard to criticize her). But the problem is that all the suspence is gone, which is a problem that faces any remake. In addition, for whatever reason, the 2012 version seems far less futuristuic than the 1990 version, and the special effects they do have are not so special. For the $138,000,000 they spent, it all seems wasted.
There are a few twists and turns in an attempt to "update" the storyline and keep us guessing, but generally speaking they are unsuccessful.

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!

The original total recall was enjoyable.
This movie takes the concept of the original movie and removes the plot line. Action sequences are no substitute for an actual story. This movie is an total waste of your time and money.
