Total Recall ★★★

Technically sound remake of the superior Schwarzenegger classic. Solid visual effects but not much else: no interesting characters to root for and a plot that misses out on what makes the original so memorable.

Still, there's a slick visual look to everything and some of the action sequences are decent. In particular one of the early ones involving a chase through a slum~esque future city is impressive and makes great use of 'vertical' depth rather than straight chases on the horizontal plane.

Not as offensively bad as some reviews make it out to be, but an ok one-and-done type of watch.
