Inspired by the famous Philip K. Dicks novel, directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwartzenegger as Douglas Quaid, Total Recall presents an astonishing story based on memory troubles between reality and virtuality. On planet Earth in 2048, every night, Quaid is haunted by a nightmare together with a beautiful dark haired woman he is on Planet Mars and the victim of a martial accident. He decides to ask the Recall Laboratory to transplant him a false memory implant but this goes terribly wrong and another personality surfaces. He has to go to Mars to join the underground but now neither he or we know which version of reality is true.
Considering the year it was made and the technology used it still is a good one to watch. It has good story so even though at times some scenes show obvious flaws it is ignorable. You can also see young Sharon Stone as a bonus. Perhaps someone in Hollywood will remake this one? You never know.
