Story


"Total Recall" is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he's got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police - controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world - Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is another remake that didn't need to be made..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..while it borrows the title from the 1990 film and claims more fidelity to the original story, it borrows its look, feel and attitude from pretty much every other science-fiction film released in the past 22 years..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
“..I think I remember this. It could just be a memory implant from the last time I dropped into Rekall Inc..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
