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]

“..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]

by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
