Total Recall (2012)

Written by Kurt Wimmer, Mark Bomback
Directed by Len Wiseman
Starring Colin Farrell, Bokeem Woodbine Bryan Cranston & Jessica Biel

Good movie! At least its better then the original 1990 film with the same name.

From the get go the action in this movie is enough warrant a viewing. The special effects are breathtaking and well thought out. You won’t find much to be board with. Your eyes will dance across the screen with each bullet whizzing by and every explosion. You won’t be disappointed in the visuals.

Colin Farrell does a good job also. The acting is believable and the characters seem to be, for the most art, on the same agenda. Bryan Cranston plays the bad guy and is always impressive as the unlikable villain.

Unfortunately the movies falls a bit flat by the ending. Nothing seems to carry any wait and ultimately the character losses his motivation. The movies does a good job of making you want to see success but doesn’t deliver on that promise.

Bottom 5. Why remake a bad movie?
