So how does this compare to the original? Total Recall (1990) with the great Arnie, it doesn't, you got better value for money back then, more story for your buck! Sure the CGI is good, but after awhile you can just see it makes up for the dithering story line, that we got to know so well, pity I was straight seeing this, as it would have been a blast to follow the action thru what at times looked like they fell onto the set of Bladerunner / 5th Element For the longest marital dispute in Hollywood history since Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton played Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, you gotta see this, it goes for over an hour with just Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale battling it out together.(Runtime:118 min) That was just plain silly, if Hauser,Farrell was this great hero he certainly couldn't tame his wife, and how did the guy at Recall know Hauser was a spy? just to many holes for this old stoner, Nah!, but I'd take my grandstoner kids to watch: 4/10 peace "V"
