It's not on MARS?!?!?!? BLOODY HELL!

I think I was duped, before going into watching this flick I was expecting monsters / mutants cause of that one episode in Face Off I covered here. But noooooo what we got were just droids and a chic with 3 boobs...hish!

Since I just got back from hanging out with friends and it near 7am I'll just review Total Recall in point form..good and bad

Good :

- FX was nice!
- Fight scenes were pretty good but not as brutal as the original
- Kate Beckinsale's character was AWESOME! Her character was elaborated a lot more than the original Sharon Stone played..alas she didn't delivered one of my fav line in that movie "tie me up!" reow!
- Setting at first reminded me of Fifth Element (a movie I love so much!) but then me friend said it looks more like Minority Report which makes more sense..well whatever I just like the change of settings.
- Colin Farrel did pretty good.
- there's this one familiar scene from the friend and I was like "that lady that lady!"...but it wasn't! nice trick there...I won't say more cause it may spoil the movie for whoever that haven't seen it.

Bad :

- WTF is with the lense flare I watching a JJ Abrahams flick?!?!? looks classy at first but as the movie progress enough is ENOUGH!
- Jessica Beil...u sleepy or something?
- eventhough I said the settings was should still have been in MARS!
- resistance ...sigh lame.
- no mutants? like seriously why why why why why. and again I was duped..the hell with that one episode of Face Off that requires the contestant to create a mutant/monster for Total Recall 2012?..pffft
- the epic scenes that made the original flick memorable was pretty blah in this remake i.e awesome nose picking scene (it wasn't a nose this time)
- no holograms tooo?!?!? sigh.

and that is all, I end with stating that the flick is plain seriously could have been better

awww I miss this scene

Good review. This film was a whole bunch of fun and even though it was very predictable, I still turned my brain off for a good 2 hours and enjoyed myself. Also, can't go wrong with a cast like Biel, Beckinsale, Farrell, and Cranston, just to name a few.
