One of the most interesting aspects behind the script of this film is the overall theme behind it, was it "real" or was it Douglas Quaid's Total Rekall experience? Another highly interesting aspect of this film is its supposed sequel which may have been scrapped for Arnold Schwarzenegger's bid for and election as the Governor of Kalifornia! If you pull up the Cast and Crew Information under the Special Features section and click on Arnold's screen, you'll see a listing for Total Recall 2 (2002), something that obviously hasn't happened but who knows what will happen in the future!
Credit goes to Arnold for his performance in this film, which was an exceptional display in that his acting skills were only getting better and better; granted, he's not the best actor in the industry, but for his type of movies, he was at the top when this film was released.Read more ›
Lion Gate's 2012 Blu-ray release looks fine and I have no issues with this product.
If you have never seen Arnold Schwarzenegger's version of "Total Recall", there are two things you should know. Firstly, it is great science fiction. It delves into the question of just who are we? Are we the sum of our memories? In "Total Recall" someone has replaced the memories of the main character, who believes himself to be a man named Quaid; he still has the same skills, but his personality is different.
Secondly, you should know this is a violent movie; how violent? There are many scenes in which you could use the words: blood, bullets, and breaking glass in their descriptions. I counted 17 violent scenes, 16 which involve gunfire and one scene where death was meted out with sharp pieces of equipment and a fire axe.
In spite of the violence, it is a well done action-movie, so riveting, so fast paced, that there is no time to get another popcorn. . . .
Picture (Blu-ray): 4. Subtitles & Languages: English, French, and German; Spanish is not included. Bonus Features: Schwarzenegger & Director commentary, Director interview, Special Effects, Trailer, Documentary "Imagining Total Recall", Restoration comparison, and Photo Gallery.
