Critic Review - Newsday

"Total Recall" is a toned-down, smoothed-out version of an amped-up, bug-eyed classic.

There's no point to it; nothing to fight for. colony of what? freedom from what? all they do is sky jump from a high city to a low city? Then try to kill each other. The sets are magnificent, but the first interpretation of the classic is far better story-wise to me. This would have been better if Colin was a blade runner and the droids/or/clones, wanted him dead to keep the secret of them ruling the world.

Colony of lower class people and freedom from the higher class people (Republic of Britain) and the leader wants to get rid of the lower class workers with robots (yunno the ones you see in almost every gunfight scenes)

tool! you must be retarded or something; your detailed "payed attention" to the movie description is just as vacated and pointless; you must be asleep permanently. My point was it's not a storyline worthy of a remake. stupid idiot!

Steve, I havent even seen the movie yet, and I still have to agree with Jon. It may be watered down, etc, but the gist I get is its based on the book, not the first movie.
Youre WAYYYY too full of yourself, I saw you post other rants on this movie as well. Even if you WERE a movie critic, who cares? Theyre full of crap like you and think their shit doesnt stink either. You whining so much about this movie along with these other critic douchebags guarantees Ill see it.
if critics hate it, Ill usually like it.

You're funny!!! Saying that I'm a retarded 80% idiot, yet you can't grasp the concept of this movie and also can't let go the fact that this is not a remake of the 90s version. It's an entire different story with the same concept. But it was more "on the edge of your seat" thing...

I have not seen this movie but it looks like an non-stop action packed thrilling ride.
I would like to see this movie once.

$200 million couldn't buy this movie a heart. Pass. Hollywood, if you read comments and reviews, please take note: character development and some well placed humor make for a classic pic. Less style, more substance PLEASE
