A great, fast moving movie will keep you interested and on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Exactly what I want in a summer movie!

Serviceable, but uninspired

Borrows all the memorable scenes from the original, but, other than special effects, doesn't add anything new or unique. If you're going to remake a successful film, a borderline cult classic, why bother if you can't come up with anything fresh? As with the original, logic & sense don't have much of a place. The motivation for the villain, Cohaagen, is preposterous, and the threatened "invasion" would be undone if one character would just stop posing for the camera and think. The one small upside for me was Kate Beckinsale. Her Terminator-esque/assassin take on the role originally performed by Sharon Stone, has its moments, but not enough to turn my thumb up. Still, if you can enjoy the eye-candy (depending on you bent—Beckinsale, Biels, or Farrell), it's not a complete waste of time. A borderline No/So-So.

Kate Beckinsale is an action movie goddess

A movie about the love of a man for a woman -- in this case the man is action movie director Len Wiseman and the woman is his wife, action movie goddess Kate Beckinsale. She's the bad guy here, and she gets all the best lines, poses, moments: the movie worships her, and I am now definitely a convert. Apart from Beckinsale, there's not too much that is outstanding about the movie (though the action sequences are nicely done), and it has absolutely nothing of the wit and genius of the original. As a sci-fi movie, it doesn't really earn its right to exist, but as a Beckinsale vehicle it will more than do.

The robots acting was better than the humans.. The robots dialogue (none) was better than the verbage by the main actors.... get my point? they tried to up one on an Arnnny movie and failed... We left half way through the movie....

It was okay

The graphics was off the chain, but throughout the movie, i felt confused and lost as for when the climax was going to happen. I original was way better with Arnold Shartz...nagger! The story was finely put together, it was easy to follow along, and I sat through the entire movie. I found myself falling asleep in this version of Total Recall.
