REAL VERSUS RECALL

TOTAL RECALL (2012)
3 and a half out of 5 stars

A remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Colin Farrell plays Douglas Quaid, a factory worker who starts to question his identity after his visit to Rekall, a company that implants artificial memories.

OMG it’s so good to see Colin Farrell back in form!

You should expect lots of action sequences as it’s directed by Len Wiseman –  Kate Beckinsale’s husband and creator/producer for the Underworld series. I liked the car chase sequence which is unlike any car chases you’ve seen before. Talk about gravity-defying! Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are really kick-ass in this and they even fight each other! Personally, I prefer Beckinsale’s fighting style – which is so ruthless yet so beautiful.

Since it is set in the future, there are some forms of technology that is oh-so-cool. Like the handphone – literally – as the phone is embedded in your palm. You will never forget to bring it out but it makes it really easy for people to track you. Nasty thing to get rid of too.
