Rating: 4/5 -- This rip-roaring slice of sci-fi excess remains Arnold Schwarzenegger's most satisfying film since his breakthrough hit, The Terminator. Full Review

[N]otable as one of the last great FX extravaganzas of the pre-digital era.

...A thunderous tribute to its star's determination to create, out of the unlikeliest raw materials, a patently synthetic yet surprisingly affable leading man...
New York Times

Adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, Verhoeven's backdrop of competing alien factions.... and ruthless capitalists informs something even more broad: when every waking moment is a nightmare, sometimes it's best to retreat to our dreams. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- If Total Recall isn't as much fun as I'd hoped, it's not as dreary as I'd feared. I wouldn't call it totally awesome, but it's far from being a total loss. Full Review

Product Description:

Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfectly cast as Quaid, a 2084 construction worker haunted by dreams of Mars in this crowd-pleasing science fiction spectacle. Against the wishes of his sexy blonde wife (Sharon Stone), Quaid goes to Rekall, a company that implants artificial memories, so he can "remember" visiting the red planet that is now being settled by human inhabitants. However, Quaid is actually an amnesiac secret agent from Mars--or is he' Enemy agents led by a thug named Richter (Michael Ironside) start trying to kill him before Quaid remembers anything more. Bullets and bone-crunching mayhem follow in large doses as Quaid heads to Mars to deal with mutants, ancient alien races, and Cohagen (Ronny Cox), a greedy capitalist controlling the colonists' air supply, in an effort to remember his real identity. TOTAL RECALL is based on the story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick and was a big box-office hit, helping to firmly establish director Paul Verhoeven as a specialist in darkly satiric, blood-drenched genre films. His next stop: BASIC INSTINCT, also with Stone.

Plot Synopsis:

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.
