Movie synopsis
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.

Editorial reviews

"...TOTAL RECALL is a gut cruncher on a grand scale..."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (07/12/1990)

New York Times - Janet Maslin (06/01/1990)

"...Spectacular....TOTAL RECALL soars when it sends up its conventions..."
Los Angeles Times - Michael Wilmington (06/01/1990)

Total Recall Remains one of the Great Arnold DVDs

'They stole his mind, now he wants it back'. Totall Recall gets lost among Arnold Schwarzenegger lure because of the success of the Terminator series and other earlier hits... but buried in between in 1990 was the smash hit TOTAL RECALL which featured a still young Arnold Schwarzenegger, a gorgeous Sharon Stone, and Rachel Ticotin. Also lost is that Total Recall is a futuristic thriller that really set the groundwork for future Arnold movies (End of Days, etc) and future scifi films on a similar premise - the conflict between the power of mind, memory and science... even movies like Eternal Sunlight of the Spotless Mind owe Arnold some credit. Total Recall is loaded with action, great Arnold one-liners, and more action. Total Recall is a wild, fun ride.

Total Recall Quotes
Lori: Doug. You wouldn't shoot me, would you sweetheart? Sweetheart, after all, we're married!
[Lori goes for her gun, Quaid shoots her]
Douglas Quaid: Consider that a divorce.

Douglas Quaid: Suppose this is just a dream, and I pull the trigger, then it woundn't make any difference?
Dr. Edgemar: It won't make any difference to me. But it will make a hell of a difference to you. Because here in your fantasy, I will be dead. And without me to guide you out, the walls of reality will eventually come crashing down around you. One minute, you'll be running from more assassins, next being part of the underground resistance, learning of the discovery of aliens in the Martian caves, learning that you're really Cohaagen's bussum buddy, defeating the bad guys, becoming the savior of Mars, but down on Earth at Rekall, you will be lobotomized! Now get a grip and put down that gun!

Kuato: What do you want, Mr. Quaid?
Douglas Quaid: The same as you, to remember.
Kuato: But why?
Douglas Quaid: To be myself again.
Kuato: You are what you do. A man is defined by his actions, not his memory.

The Rolls Royce of Sci-Fi films

Total Recall - It's that good

One of the coolest movies to come out in the 90's. Total Recall features Arnie vs Arnie, and has one of the most original plots I've ever seen in an action movie.

The action scenes are awesome and the special effects are really good (amazing for their time). The cast is great... Total Recall just kicks butt, plain and simple.

Final Verdict:

5/5

Rent or Buy?: Would you buy one of the best cars on the planet? Of course you would, this is one of the best Arnie films ever made, so buy it!

IF YOU FIND THIS REVIEW HELPFUL PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE. Thank you.
