There are so many opportunities to make a remake better, but this film didn't attempt none of them.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

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.

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?

Messing with memories is how you forget that a better version of Total Recall happened 22 years ago.

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.

Visually, the 2012 remake is better than the original, with interesting set and background designs, decent enough futuristic vehicles, and superb special effects. The plot is another story.

Wiseman makes mildly pretty films, full of blues and grays and lens flares, but they're the definition of bland.

[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.
November 5, 2012
While far from terrible, this retread forgoes any qualities to justify its existence in the first place. It will be justly forgotten before long.

A remake that's well-worth missing.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 19, 2012
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.

September 27, 2012
Enough visual spectacle to make viewers wish they had three eyeballs but thin characters and a convoluted story ultimately undermine Wiseman's successes.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 26, 2012
Total Recall is it's own beast - one that needs to be caged off and held at arm's length. It is a mess, a wasteful rethink that was never needed and lousy movie at worst.

September 24, 2012
Humorless, glossy, bland as milk, generic and instantly forgettable.
