I realize from what I've read that I may be the only person who says this, but I actually like the new version better.

It looks gritty and somewhat realistic as opposed to cheesy like the Arnold version, and obviously Colin Farrell is a much better actor than Schwarzanegger.

The new total recall was entertaining but it didn't break any grounds nor did it make me want to watch it again. I felt like i got my moneys worth because to me its what total recall would have been if they had our type of CGI back then. plus having the girls with the three boobs helps as well very suckable.

No. This time it's his hand.

Gotta go to Mars for it really to be Total Recall.

Plus the original kinda left you thinking, was this the implanted memory? But in the remake, you know right away that it's "real" and not a memory.

Yeah, the new one wasn't bad. It just should've been called something besides Total Recall.

They still dropped some hints, even at the end with the "Rekall" billboard, that it might be a dream.

I will grant there were parts of it that could have been better executed, but that's true of the original also.

I liked how they paid homage to the original during the security gate scene.

the fat redheaded lady looked exactly like the one from the original, I got a snicker out of it.

The new one reminded me of movies like Surrogates or I Robot

Stylistic and overall, a just-above-average action flick with solid actors

The old one is a classic but I think its honestly a great story poorly executed. JAAF (Just Another Arnold Flick)
