What a let down. Convoluted, uninteresting script, poor acting, lots of continuity glitches, way to many and to long fight scenes that didn't add to the story and they reeked of halfassed choreography. The principals were rigid and unnatural.

But as usual the CGI was masterful and beautiful, great sound track, and the art dept. was superb in creating the "Blade Runner" vibe. Not a waste of time but close.

I gave up on this movie not even 10 minutes in...Perhaps I'll give it another go if the visuals are good then..I hope the remake of Robocop goes way better than this..I know the acting in the Robocop remake will be better than the original..I watched parts 1&2 this weekend and the acting was atrocious..Peter Weller was excellent as always though

I LOVED Total Recall. I thought the story was great. Mess with someones head by implanting memories, classic. Xbox be damned, that would be awesome if you could actually live things like that in your head. I can't wait to see the reboot.

So it's a pretty good Hollywood movie then, by your account?

You have to be pretty bad to be a bad hollywood movie... By default they are usually terrible.

I just don't see the point of a remake when the original still has value to stand on its own. It's not like Arnie is in black and white, and they have a pianola in the background playing a ditty as the words appear in cut outs on screen.

(having said that, crikey, 22 years old.. lol)

Err... I didn't like the movie. Remaking it was a bad idea. :/

Did anyone else notice the faces on the money? WTF would obama's face be on united federation of britian's currency for?


And gee, who is the white guy? Why is his worth a thousand and obama only worth 50?



Can't really comment too much on the movie just yet, that's as far as I got. When he goes to the safety deposit box.
