Blog #203: Movie Review: Total Recall

I am going to refrain from comparisons between this movie and the original movie.  Reason being?  They are so different that they aren’t really comparable.  Essentially they took the character names, the title organization, and the three breasted girl and made the rest up.

As an action movie, Total Recall succeeds.  It is virtually one long action sequence from the moment Quaid goes to Recall until the movie is over, and the action is really well done.

However, that’s really all there is.  The story is slow in the beginning, and then the action starts and essentially continues until the end of the film.

Action fans will love it, but fans of the original movie probably won’t.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
