  • Total Recall 2012

    ★½ Watched 18 Apr, 2014

    I watched the theatrical and 'extended director's cut'. Both have flaws, the theatrical cut just has more of them, and no Ethan Hawke.

    Thin characterisation and implausible motives, pretty much across the board, hobble this re-hash from the beginning. I had little identification with any of the characters before the sci-fi and action kicked in proper, so the stakes were always low and the peril didn't work. That the special effects and sets are somewhat tastefully realised, if awkwardly composited…

  • The Edge 1997

    ★★½ Rewatched 16 Apr, 2014

    Hmmm. Clunky, not as tense or interesting as I remembered.
