Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi classic Total Recall holds up very well, even against some of today's sci-fi standards.

Crass, loud, and proud, Total Recall gets a not-very-special special edition (more like an SE DVD where the feature has been remastered in 1080p), but a worthwhile buy for fans, with terrific grain and an even better commentary track.

A symphony of breaking glass, swearing and Uzi fire occasionally interrupted by car chases or flashes of tit, Total Recall seems to have been surgically targetted at a demographic of 14-year-old boys.

Total Recall: Special Limited Edition offers an insight into the film, but it also delivers more time with Paul Verhoeven through a commentary and a documentary.

Total Recall does everything an action movie is supposed to do -- and does it so completely excessively that we can never be sure if it is making fun of itself.
