“Total Recall” Movie Review

(Fun, Action, Action, Action)

“Total Recall”  is based on a 23 page short story that I read in Barnes & Noble after the movie.

Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) is a bored factory worker commuting daily between his home, in what used to be Australia, and his job in what used to be the UK.   He is married to Lori Quaid (Kate Beckinsale) and has a recurring dream starring Melina (Jessica Biel).

Douglas wants more.  He visits the local ReKall location to partake of a memory trip as a Secret Agent.

But things go horribly wrong….people die, and Quaid kills the invaders and escapes.  Biel shows up to save him.  But is this real?  Or part of the memory trip?  Is he simply in a chair dreaming all this?  The rest of the movie is an action filled thrill ride with tons of great computer graphics, wonderful use of glass, and hand-to-glass video conferencing (I write a blog on video conferencing, so this technology depiction was terrific…. to nerdly me).

Oh yeah…..three boobs…gotta love it!  🙂  I was so engrossed in the action, that I do not RECALL any f-words, or cussing.  I caught the boob scene, though.  Colin Farrell is a handsome man, in great shape, and both Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale are stunning.  A handsome cast sure to please everyone.

Must see…you will enjoy a quick, fun, action packed, engrossing two hours.  A mini-vacation from all your troubles.

Visit IMDb for more information.  We watched this in the Tracy, CA CineMark where our poster is STILL UP!  🙂
