Good selection of actors...,
This review is from: Total Recall (Amazon Instant Video)
I liked the actors they chose for the movie and the computer animations and effects were excellent.
The story... it's not something that should/could be reused in the 21st century/2012, if you ask me. Chemical warfare, revolution, dictatorship, and Asian or Cyrillic writing (not sure if it was Korea or what...) was a touch too 1980's for me. Don't get me wrong, the movie was fun to watch but about the level of Equilibrium. The world they created was just too antiquated for movies of this caliber. There was too much Cold War context for my taste in it. I watched it twice on separate days and it was a nice, casual movie to watch. It's the kind where you walk away, return, and don't feel that you missed much.
I'd rent it somewhere for cheap or wait until it is available for streaming for free because it's not worth the money to buy it. Even if you appreciate Colin or Jessica's appealing physique, not worth the money to pay more than $10 for the bluray.
