I thought it was an ok flick...completely different setting from the original movie, also, I don't read books because they're stupid

I very much liked the original movie as I did this version. The concept was the same but the story lines differed greatly. This version was very well done.

So what makes this 2012 Total Recall superior to the Arnie model? For starters, there's an actual actor in the starring role. Full Review

This premise contains the seeds of an interesting economic and political allegory, but the ambitions of the filmmakers - lie in the direction of maximum noise and minimum sense. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
For all of its dazzlingly rendered cityscapes and nonstop action, this revamped Total Recall is a bland thing - bloodless, airless, humorless, featureless. With or without the triple-bosomed prostitute. Full Review

It's big and it's loud, but ultimately not much more than that. Full Review

USA Today
Instead of drawing the audience in, the action scenes merely blur together. And the intriguing, thoughtful concepts at the story's core are glossed over. Full Review
