If you have heard of the movie Total Recall before this year or even watched the original Total Recall (1990), good for you… because to me, 1990’s Total Recall had been one of my lifetime favourites & I’ve watched it for at least 10 times throughout my childhood up till my teenage years! I was such a big Schwarzenegger fan *me gusta*
Surely you can imagine my excitement when I knew that they are going to remake my all-time favourite movie! Not to mention with one of my biggest male fantasy…. Colin Farrell! *Dayumms*
So with free tickets & greatest joy, I rushed to the nearest cinema!
I gotta say…. of all the sci-fi movies this year… this is the BEST action sci-fi movie I’ve watched this year!
Important points about the movie:
- Action pack from the first minute until the end of the show (I tried so hard not to go to the loo, in order not to miss any action!)
- The effects is superb! It might be one of the best movies to watch in 3D!
- The ideas for the technology & settings are crazy creative- imagine hologram masks & memory manipulations!
- Even if you know the story from the 1990 Total Recall, this movie will make you want to watch it again, as the 2012 has more actions & a lot more twists.
- As compared to the 1990 version, Total Recall 2012 is much more age friendly (less gore & disturbing visuals).
Anyways, if you’re interested, here’s a comparison of both versions (although both have their own good parts)
I so totally love this movie, and might consider watching it in again, this time in 3D!
Anyhow, if you are a fan of sci-fi, future & techy stuff, this is the best movie! Even if not, just a fan of action film itself is enough to make you love this film!
