Total Recall (2012)



Hello there! I would like to update about Total Recall, which I finish watched just now at e@curve Petaling Jaya. If you didn't watch previous Total Recall which is made on year 1990, act by Arnold Schwarzenegger, some of my friend say that the first Total Recall is better than current latest Total Recall.

One of the reason why some people say the previous Total Recall is nice, is because there is NO MARS in this current latest movie, some of the people say it is a climax for the movie.

Collin Farrell as Hauser / Douglas Quiad, he is a factory worker for the Marine force right after lose his memory. Before he lose his memory, he work for Coohagen (U.F.B.), and he also work for Matthias (Kolony). Why is he working as double agent because he disagree with Coohagen idea and also thinks that Matthias idea was much more better and peaceful.

Jessica Biel as Melina, secret agent from Kolony and partnering with Hauser to complete the mission pass down by Matthias. While Hauser is missing in action, Melina is looking all over for him and assist him for his memory lost mission.

Kate Beckinsale as Lori Quaid, police force from U.F.B., assign to become Hauser wife and watch over him. But too bad within few weeks, Hauser regain his memory and she force to stop his act once and for all. She is very skilled in martial art and she can fight over Melina and Hauser together in the same spot. One word to describe this character is: Overpowered.

Bryan Cranston as Coohagen, he lead U.F.B. marines and always keep try to invade Kolony with no mercy. By not showing his true color, he's using all kind of evil strategy and create fake news to darkened the name of Matthias.

Overall this movie was pretty cool (for those who haven't watch Total Recall on 1990) and it is pretty bad at the same time (for those who watched Total Recall on 1990). Storyline is kind of poor, full of action scene, if you liked secret agent / spy movie, I think you will love this movie as well. It is just another James Bond movie who's appear on future timeline with some special buildings, special guns and special vehicle.

Overall rating will be 6/10, every movement is so risky while Melina and Hauser is running away from the enemy. But they still made it and they survive from the end of the movie, I think last part of this movie is slightly epic. Which make me thinks that "It is real? Or it is fake?"

Thanks for reading, by Kian Fai.
