Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone and Michael Ironside, to name a few; Total Recall has some of the best Hollywood actors at the peak of their career and offering some of their best performances yet. This is a smart action-packed science fiction masterpiece directed by none other than Paul Verhoeven and based on a short story by Philip K. Dick. What a delight!
It has some of the best and catchiest music in film history. It contains several futuristic concepts we haven’t seen before. It has a confusing storyline that plays with your mind but makes perfect sense when all is said and done. The script constantly gets you wondering what is real, what is virtual, and you may not get straight answers by the time the end credits roll.
Everything in Total Recall, from the cars to the architecture, has a futuristic yet somewhat primitive look. The film has its own aesthetic and looks like nothing else. The make-up required to make us believe we are among mutants is quite elaborate and very realistic. Action, aliens, technology, romance, gore; you have it all. Total Recall is, without a doubt, one of the best movies ever made!
