It's nothing but a third-rate genre exercise.
January 26, 2019
It's a non-stop action fest to the finish.
November 9, 2018
Throw in a dash of Minority Report and I, Robot, and you have yourself a lukewarm sci-fi action film.
November 4, 2018
An entertaining, if almost completely empty-calorie film with a Kate Beckinsale performance that should not be missed. Sometimes, that's all the brain needs for a good time.

Total Recall has moments of delicious escapism, but they're snack-sized. As a whole, it's neither entertaining enough nor intelligent enough to leave you with more than a vaguely sci-fi taste in your mouth.
August 30, 2018
It stands on its own as as a dystopian paranoid fantasy of the sole remaining future superpowers.
August 23, 2018
Whilst the action is grand in scope - and certainly high in production values - it somehow lacks any tangible sense of tension or drama.
July 3, 2018
While the remake might not hold a candle to the 1990 interpretation of the material, it can stand on its own as a solid action movie.

Total Recall is like Bourne Identity met Blade Runner, then had an ugly tabloid breakup followed by a nervous breakdown and a tell-all book.
October 17, 2017
... it was awful.

Suffice to say, you're best off forgetting this sorry mess ever happened.

There are so many opportunities to make a remake better, but this film didn't attempt none of them.
June 30, 2016
The very fast, very loud, very dynamic, very cartoony-violent 'Total Recall' remake will make you feel like you've been hit in the face with a brick for two hours.
April 17, 2016
Bland all the way through, from dialogue to action and everything in between. It's not a missed opportunity - just a total waste of time.
February 12, 2016
Beckinsale is the only cast member who comes out rosey here, and frankly I wouldn't mind a spin off movie about her character.
July 17, 2013
A generic, inconsequential sci-fi caper that looks slick and has a famous title, and offers little else, no matter how many nipples the whores have.
June 23, 2013
It would rather be a blockbuster than a mind-bender. It turns out to be neither.
March 4, 2013
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?
March 4, 2013
Messing with memories is how you forget that a better version of Total Recall happened 22 years ago.
January 2, 2013
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.
