TOTAL RECALL (Theatrical Release USA 1990)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Total Recall—
fresh, new out-of-the-box sci fi—presents an intellectually pleasing, innovative story, well supported by Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leading character. Watch for Michael Ironside, Sharon Stone, and the good acting by Mel Johnson Jr. Listen for the good voicing by Robert Picardo for the robot Johnnycab, a terrific character piece introduced into the script. The film does contain language, sexual references, and some nudity; but the film is worth at least a viewing.

Reality and fantasy become inexplicably intertwined after Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) takes a memory-implanted trip to Mars.
