Entertainment Weekly - 07/27/2012
"Director Paul Verhoeven gooses the film with the same subversive wit he brought to ROBOCOP..." -- Grade: A
In 2084, Quaid, a construction worker on Earth is haunted by dreams of another life on Mars. He goes to Rekall Inc. to have artificial memories of Mars planted in his head. However, during this procedure, a number of agents from Mars fear he will discover his mysterious true identity. Paul Verhoeven's film, based on a Philip K. Dick story, is a wild ride with eye-popping special effects.
