Total Recall 2012 vs Total Recall 1990
I went and saw the new Total Recall 2012 preview screening in Wellington tonight. It was remarkably entertaining in the first half, although the second half got a bit crazy especially with the baddies always missing and the lift shafts where the goodies kept conveniently finding a lift top to latch on to. Anyway, this movie is good and in many ways reminds you of more modern movies like Inception which encourage you to think outside the square and question reality. Colin Farrell is a better actor than Arnie, but it is still funny not seeing big Arnie there. Of course, there was a three breasted woman, but I don't know if it is because I expected it or less was made of it, but it didn't quite seem as memorable in this movie.
Have you seen Total Recall 2012? What did you think?
