Total Recall

Len Wiseman, known for the Underworld franchaise, takes on one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best films and I must say makes it better. I must confess to have never read the book but I do like the changes in this film from the 1990 version which dumps Mars for a decimated Earth that has been reduced to only two inhabitable city states. There are nods to the original film and it has a look and feel of an over-crowded Minority Report landscape if located in Hong Kong. Kate Beckinsale takes on the consolidated roles of Lori Quad and Richter from the first film but that goes with the territory if you are married to the director. The movie is a fun ride and is non-stop action through to the end - a must see.
