Review rate : C-

“..you'll be shouting stop, stop, on the soul of Syd Barrett please make it stop! That is precisely what watching Len Wiseman's "Total Recall" is like..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
1.5 of 4

“..you won't need Rekall Inc. to erase this movie from your memory, as it will evaporate quickly on its own..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
2.5 of 4

“..Wiseman shows minimal to moderate facility for shaping a complicated action sequence..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2 of 4

“..Wiseman adds some special effects and Michael Bay-style pyrotechnics, but the result is similar. It's doubly deflating because one of the great advantages of remaking a movie is being given the opportunity to correct problems..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 5

“..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]

“..this Total Recall will make you feel robbed as well. It's two hours you'll never get back and every minute is a bad memory..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..this "Recall" plays it safe, and while that doesn't make it a failure, it's also not a total success..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]

“..it's big and it's loud, but ultimately not much more than that..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..is another remake that didn't need to be made..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
