      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While it boasts some impressive action sequences, Total Recall lacks the intricate plotting, wry humor, and fleshed out characters that made the original a sci-fi classic.

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online There are so many opportunities to make a remake better, but this film didn't attempt none of them. Rated: D+ Sep 8, 2017 Full Review David Sexton London Evening Standard We used to do the future so much better. Let's not forget that. Let's forget this instead. Rated: 1/5 Aug 31, 2012 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Recalls Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and Christopher Nolan's Inception, without, sadly being quite as distinctive as either. Rated: 2/5 Aug 30, 2012 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson The performances match this shallow kiddie pool story. Rated: 1/5 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Graeme Tuckett Stuff.co.nz Done right, Total Recall should be a glorious mash-up of genres; The Truman Show-meets-Blade Runner. As it is, this is sci-fi without ideas, and a thriller completely bereft of thrills. Apr 18, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review [The film] spends so much of its time trying to duplicate aspects of the original that the filmmakers were distracted from their most clever ideas. Rated: 2/4 Oct 3, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Michael M The early set sequences were high budget and iexciting. Colin Ferrel was convincing and I could never resist Jesica Beil. The escape scenes we creative and well choreographed. The plot line got a little loose in the middle but ended strong., Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Simone C Special effects are absolutely on another level compared to the original, but the story is good and I really like Colin Farrell. This is a good movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/21/24 Full Review Alex E Why does this exist? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Audience Member Not bad, not great. Great adaptation of the AI cops. Actors great. I don't like how they didn't keep the same Mars theme going from the original? Weird to cut that out. And why, did they miss the chance to replay Doug Quaid's best line, "Consider that a divorce." lol. Instead make the whole movie about his fake wife chasing him?? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review joan v Cant say this movie lacks coo sci-fi action scenes. It's jam packed full of it but it takes the illusion wether he is sleeping or awake feel one sided. That's was one of the great lore's from the original and this movie failed at elevating it or at least maintain it. Could not maintain it for at least half way through the movie and took away from the plots twist and steak's that you should feel if the events was not a dream. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Martin S I liked this much better than the Arnold version; because it was truer to Philip Dick's novel !! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Read all reviews
