Review: Total Recall

A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall – a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led – goes wrong and he finds himself on the run.

They took an Arnold Schwarzenegger and modernized it, I was a huge fan of the original with Sharon Stone so I had high expectations for this one. The cast line up was excellent and the previews looked good An excellent cast, I like how it revolved around a man losing his memory that he is a top notch secret agent. A little twist on the story helps and the characters were a bit different, it also took place on Earth this time not Mars, but still a very engaging story, there was no dull moment. There was a bit of a few confusing moments towards the end, but I liked the character that Kate Bakinsale played. It was a fun story and engaging but the slight confusion towards the end threw me off, for any Scifi fan this is something that you will enjoy but everyone else won’t be too keen on it.
