@namroniwaj My problem with the new one was that the new setting sucked. It was a good popcorn action flick, bu overall disappointing, considering it was just a remake of this one.

This movie is a classic sci-fi. Still very enjoyable.
I watched this movie yesterday after not seeing it for a long time, just as entertaining as ever.
In my opinion, Total Recall is Arnold's best movie.
excellent action film that doesn't stand still for a second. bizarre characters, no one is who you think they are and in the end this is one of arnold better films.
Hell ya!
My friends had repeatedly told me this was a terrible film, so i'd never bothered to watch it. I happened to be so lucky to catch it on TV the other day.
and it was shockingly brilliant. I don't know if this was because i was told it was so bad or because i was really high.
Anyway, It's got incredible one - liners.

consider that a divorce.

Seriously though, life on mars, inflating heads, a dude with a mutant on his stomach.
ridiculous storyline and effects. one to watch.
Classic Arnold annihilating everyone in a brutal fashion as well as great random funny/weird bs makes this a good sci/fi action movie.

Arnold is at it again but this time he fights in the future.

When construction worker Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) discovers a memory chip in his brain during a virtual-reality trip, he also discovers that his past has been invented to conceal a plot of planetary domination. Soon, he's off to Mars to find out who he is and who planted the chip..

Don't take this as one of your ordinary same old action thriller, it's more intriguing than that and surely does add a lot more to thrillers than people think. The film takes place as if Arnold is in some illusion dream that has gone out of sync and has turned into a nightmare, and we have seen this film before. But this one is more different and doesn't get too confusing.

The most intriguing thing about this film is that it may all just be a dream. So we decide on whats real or what are just delusions, and more of like with Arnold's character is that is he just a construction worker or a secret agent.

The special effects in the first hour of the picture are really spectacular and look really good but then after that it starts to just repeat itself and look cheesy. It looks a lot like a bad rip-off of an old Star Wars flick and doesn't look spectacular after all.

Total Recall's resolution also has me on the balls of my feet too of just what is really going on. We don't understand by the end of the movie what is fact and what is fiction and leads us to just come up with it ourselves. Which really doesn't make the payoff real well if all's we have to do is think what's real, and not.

Aside from that much of the rest of the film is surely to entertain anyone. This movie is a lot like other Arnold action films it's that its bloody, violent, energetic, and a little humorous but this time with a twist of sc-fi. The film doesn't shine away that it's from the future but also doesn't exploit by using guns that are noticeable today and not really focusing on spacships like I thought it would've.

Much of Arnold's performance is the reason for this films success. He is not just playing a normal old superman, aside from the fighting, he is a very confused man who has to fight his way through of finally discovering the truth. Although some of his lines can be very cheesy, as usual, I still think this is one of his most adaptive performances yet, and makes this film different from his others.

Consensus: Total Recall has a great boost of action, goore, and a touch of humor that will keep you entertained until the payoff, which really doesn't payoff.

Perhaps the best Arnold movie. Well a big part of that would have to do with the premise based on a Philip K. Dick novel.

Arnold is cast as an average guy with an above average wife in Sharon Stone. Turns out that his life and Stone and an implanted image and none of his life is real. Upon going to Mars he finds his real life and the oddities it entails. At the end we are let into what a government can process and the fun that entails.
One of the best sci-fi movie for me. I've seen it about 10 times with the same pleasure.
