My husband and I went out for a mini date last night to see the new Total Recall. As I have never seen the original, I can not compare the two together. Sorry!
But what I can do is say that it was a good movie. I can’t say great, because it did feel a tad bit lengthy and I was aware of how uncomfortable the movie seats were. When your backside begins to scream at you, you know the movie isn’t great.
With that being said, I enjoyed the premise of the movie. I always LOVE Kate Beckinsale. She is great at fierce roles.
Colin Farrell…don’t hate me ladies, but I’ve never been a huge fan. Not sure what it is about him, but I think they could have found a better actor for the role. But he did a pretty good job for this movie.
The special effects impressed me. Nothing felt fake or cheap.
Overall, I enjoyed this movie. I think it would be best seen on a big screen because some scenes have a lot going on and it would be much more impressive on a larger screen.
I would recommend this movie…but I wouldn’t go see this one over Spiderman or Batman. Or the new Bourne movie coming out next week. I’m soooo excited, despite Matt Damon not being in this one.
