Total Recall Blu-Ray / DVD Review



Synopsis: Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police - controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world - Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

Review: I was a fan of the original Total Recall back in the day, mostly because I loved Arnold movies.  That was back when my standards for movies were much lower!  Now, its painful to watch the old film, so I didn't have much hope for a remake..I just didn't see it.  I'm glad to say that I was wrong.  Colin Farrell is such a strong leading man that he carries this film into the modern age with honors!  They weave a fantastic take on the story and create an all new mythos in a world that has such fantastic special effects, amazing action and an all-star cast.  This is not just a great sci-fi film..its a great film.  We highly recommend it.

Interest Range: Action, Sci-Fi
