Total Recall, Totally Entertaining?

I'm pretty sure you are all well aware of this show which is a reboot of a show of the same name in the 1990 where starring the almighty Arnold Scwhanger125834 as a star of the show (pretty sure his name comes with some numbers in it).

You  all don't need for me to tell you what is in the show because the trailer says it all. Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) have been implanted with the memory of someone he thought he was. In the quest to find who he really are he is being chased by 2 very beautiful women and then the story unfolds from there. Can he find his true self? Or will he just live on thinking that he is who he used to be.

Since this is my first time ever writing a review for a movie, I got to say that I am a gadget person. Watching this movie gives me excitement because of the gadgets that are feature in the movie. The gadgets are so futuristic that it makes the movie feels like it is from the freaking future although pretty sure that half of it is shot in the background with green canvas on it.

SETTINGS of the movie was good. There is also this sick rendition of the town where I feel it is like it looks alittle bit like Hong Kong on technology steroids, the two cities are done beautifully and also I have nothing to complain about the settings of the place. Everything was done beautifully albeit that most of it was made in the studio.

STORYLINE was considered to be just merely getting through that is because of there are ACTIONS sequence almost through the whole story. It will definitely keep viewers at the edge of the sits. Some action can be extremely overrated ( you will know when you see them) but then again it is suppose to be a HOLLYWOOD movie, most of the actions are blown out of proportion. That is what movie is all about eh, doing something that cannot be done everyday. The actions sequence are well made and also more hand-to-hand combat always wins for me. Well don't get me wrong, guns are cool and shit but people dies to fast with it. More close quarter combat makes a movie feels more action packed and shit

If you are looking for CHARACTER development then you will be upset to know that it is close to none. More like someone just running and gaining clues in the process of finding out who is him. In such a short period of time I was not expecting that much character development also. It can be said that the development was...... confusing. The 2 ladies played a good supporting roll and also look incredibly bad ass especially Kate Beckinsale (sorry fanboy here) whose plays her role like a champion.

CONCLUSION - Entertaining enough to keep me on my seat for a good two hours of the movie. Technology, chicks, explosions can easily keep you entertain enough to forget about the flaws in the show.

p/s: this review is based on personal opinion therefore should be taken with a pinch or spoonful of salt. Whichever makes you happy. Btw, jessica biel is also freaking hot. tqvm
