Most of it looks rather too much like Ridley Scott's classic, Blade Runner.

Beckinsale is laughable as the kick ass vengeful wife with clipped Brit accent, high-heeled boots and flouncy hair. Not since War Horse has a mane of hair swished as much on screen.

Recalls Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and Christopher Nolan's Inception, without, sadly being quite as distinctive as either.

Your mind isn't playing tricks. You have seen this before.
August 30, 2012
People got up, left and returned, casually, without urgency or guilt, as though passing the time between trains: it clearly did not remotely thrill them.

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.

An entirely pointless remake thanks to a messy script, a lack of chemistry between the three leads and a failure to grasp what made the original film so enjoyable in the first place.

It's escapism that is itself trapped in a prison of risk-phobic, formulaic filmmaking.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 29, 2012
Ultimately, it's a totally watchable action thriller but not the film it could and should have been.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

There's just not that much to recall.
August 29, 2012
Just another dumb, needless remake to add to the pile.

'Total Recall' is Hollywood at its worst: pointless, witless, and so very unnecessary.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 28, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Perhaps no more absurd than the Verhoeven version, but certainly less amusing.

Provides nothing but unhappy memories

This is Total Recall written by someone who once overheard two teenage boys discussing Arnold Schwarzenegger ...

There's much to enjoy here ...

The film's downfall lies in its inability to do anything more than titillate with a continuous series of chase sequences.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 25, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 24, 2012
An all-out barrage of special effects that borders on a bludgeoning.
Full Review | Original Score: B
