Total Recall (2012)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Mystery
This is an alright remake of an action movie. Colin Farrell played a great role as Douglas Quaid. He was captivating throughout with his supporting actresses Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel 🙂 . The story itself was ok but the action (which was plentiful and big) seemed to take more of a central role. The story should have had more depth and even though at times I was intrigued, I was bored a little too. The film seems a little too long in sections as it doesn’t hold your attention long enough. The world’s overall look (future world) was pretty cool and made me believe in it. However, there were some unrealistic elements within this film that were too annoying to miss. Lori Quaid seems to be a little unconvincing with her survivable techniques 😛 . That’s as far as I will say without spoiling. Though it doesn’t leave you with a bad feeling after the film has ended but I won’t be rushing to re-watch. However, the actual end sequence was quite good and the beginning section is far the best. Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 2.5 Stars out of 5!
