I’ve just got back from watching the re-spin of Total Recall. I was a fan of the Arnold version, but that was 22 years ago (Wow!), so I though it was worth a watch to see what they had brought to the table. As you would expect, some bits are very similar, but there is a lot that is very different from the previous incarnation.
Colin Farrell was pretty good. He certainly looked like he’d hit the gym and stuck to his diet in the lead up to the film. Very impressive. At times I was watching him and found myself thinking he’d make a cracking James Bond! When Daniel Craig gets bored of that gig, Colin should send in his CV.
Kate Beckinsale was fit with a capital “F”, “I” and “T”. A complete robo-babe from the planet vixen in the galaxy of grrrrrrr! In my opinion, she made the very lovely Jessica Biel seem positively ordinary, and that’s saying something!
All in all it’s a really neat action romp, even for us oldies that remember the days when they could show Arnold in a film without using soft focus…
