Total Recall (2012)

Is it a dream or is it real? Or is it a mediocre remake of a mediocre 1990’s film?

Devoid completely of character development (because who needs that when you have explosions!) we are led to believe Douglas Quaid is possibly a spy (or possibly not) after going to Rekall, the company that makes up memories like, well, being a spy. Kate Beckinsale looks angry and kicks some ass while Colin Farrell has a look of complete surprise on his face for the whole film. Stupid but entertaining. I give it 3 triple-breasted prostitutes out of 5 bad CGI hover-car chases.

Stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel
