Total Recall Reviews

Page 1 of 11

More or less serviceable action thriller with some nice ideas for visual set pieces, but did it really have to be as long as it is?

If there had never been an 'original' Total Recall, the reaction to Wiseman's version would surely have been a lot less frosty. Because in and of itself, it's a decent enough sci-fi action flick - severely flawed, but a lot of fun.

[D]irector Len Underworld Wiseman's least hacktackular movie yet, which isn't to say that it's quality entertainment, but it is some solid B-grade processed-cheese-product movie junk food.

This new version of Total Recall is the cinematic equivalent of a vibrator: it is whirling, sleek, shiny and utterly artificial, yet it gets you where you need to go.

Ali Gray

A bright and shiny slice of blockbuster sci-fi that's so dazzling it makes tender love to your retinas but so underwhelming it practically wipes itself from your memory the instant it's over.

Delivers a serviceable piece of updated movie product.

Enough visual spectacle to make viewers wish they had three eyeballs but thin characters and a convoluted story ultimately undermine Wiseman's successes.

Engaging visual effects don't make up for a banal script and paper-thin characters.

Matt's Movie Reviews

A sci-fi action movie that wears its influences loudly, what Total Recall lacks in originality it makes up in its brooding tech-world action noir spectacle.

Directorial brio and eye-popping special effects hold our interest when there is nothing on screen to fire our little grey cells.

The effects, action and set are all terrific, with Colin Farrell on great form as the determined spy up against his lethal wife.

I enjoyed its clever gadgets, like a palm phone and the way cars travel in the sky using magnetism, and the impressive action scenes, well shot by Beckinsale's director husband Len Wiseman.

Ultimately, it's a totally watchable action thriller but not the film it could and should have been.

A slick, high-tech, fabulously designed popcorn pusher. Yet the one big thing missing from the lark is the one thing that made the Arnold Schwarzenegger film so enjoyable - fun.

What's missing - besides the fact the movie never goes to Mars, as the original did - is the loony, over-the-top panache Verhoeven brought to the story. It's a serviceable action thriller, but not a memorable one.

An all-out barrage of special effects that borders on a bludgeoning.

Ben Mortimer

On the whole it's an enjoyable film, and a big step up from some of the muddled, self-important sci-fi flicks that have come out this year. Definitely worth a watch.

Len Wiseman's remake improves on it [the original] many ways, though in other ways, it's slightly inferior. If only we could have combined the best parts of both!

Paul Verhoeven's celebrated 1990 sci-fi/thriller Total Recall [...] is neither butchered nor bested by Len Wiseman's modernisation.
