In this stylized remake of the original Arnold Schwarzenegger movie we have Colin Farrell taking the role of Douglas Quaid. Douglas is a factory worker that is troubled by reoccurring nightmares and one night he decides to try a place called Rekall – a company that provides fake memories. His life is turned upside down when things don’t go as planned. Total Recall is a huge action/adventure that takes place on a post-apocalyptic earth where only two countries remain. In order to get to each country the government created a massive underground elevator called “The Fall”. Total Recall is full of promise, but it never lives up to its predecessor. It ultimately feels like an unnecessary remake of a much better film.
