Douglas Quaid: If I am not me, then who the hell am I?
New better trailer, shows alot more. I'm def down to see this now.
Colin Farrell was great in Minority Report and he was great in Fright Night. I'd bet he's going to be great in this one too. I liked the first Total Recall a lot. It was a very enjoyable film but this one, well, I am really jacked to see it. It might be the film of the summer IMO. Beckinsdale is actually a pretty good actress. She was a real surprise in Contraband, perhaps the only surprise in that film. I am looking forward to seeing how she does in this and can totally see her in the Stone role.
Booyah, this is a great movie summer!
Haha, typical woman.

"Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep?
To the very toes he is terrified, because the ground gives way under him, and the dream begins."
Thought it was a nice summer blockbuster. The score might have been to monotonous, almost the same fast paced music throughout. Story was a little too simple, I wanted to be confused, but there wasn't anything to be confused about. Colin still doesn't hold the screen that well as a lead, but did the job. Found myself deciding between Biel and Beckinsale during the movie. English accent won.

i couldn't help but thinking what a fantastic three-way len wiseman had with his wife, kate beckinsale and jessical biel!.........
how do you think people get movies roles in hollywood?..........
as far at the movie went, it was a pretty good update with all the new effects and cgi.
I thought colin farrell was a bit one deminsional and the chemistry between him and the females was non exhistant..........
Well, call me disappointed. Just got back from seeing it and should have waited until Red Box. No, it isn't terrible. Without any frame of reference to the first film, you might even say it was pretty good. I could not shake set comparisons to Blade Runner, Fifth Element, and Minority Report however. Can't Hollywood come up with an original looking dystopia anymore, never mind a fresh story?
As much as I've grieved Schwarzenegger's acting over the years, I missed him as Quaid. Beckinsale does a good job combining Sharon Stone's role with Michael Ironside's however, she ain't no Micheal Ironside. There were reasonable actors in this film but they were disappointing. I lay that at the feet of the director. Wiseman is competent, he just isn't (yet) at the level that Verhoeven was when he did Robocop, 5 years before he directed Total Recall.
Just rented this on demand Saturday night.
Meh, original was better. I kept waiting for them to get to Mars, didn't know it wasn't part of this movie as I did not read any spoilers. No aliens, no pyramids, no nothing.
