Re: Total Recall - Reviews, Grading, and duiscussions, SPOILERS

- Not as good as the original.

- The trip to Mars in the original was better than what we got here.

- Farell, Beckinsale and Biel were fun to watch.

- Colin Farell has done a convincing american accent in the past. He did so in Minority Report. I didn't even know it was an accent then because I didn't know who he was.

- Farell and Biel getting shot through their hands while holding hands... That was one of the most romantic things I've ever heard of.

- Not used to seeing Bryan Cranston with hair.

- Loved the fake-out at port security with that lady we thought was Quaid. Great homage to the original.

- Liberation by sabotaging the fall didn't compare with the terraforming of Mars from the original.

- Glad they kept the ambiguous ending eventhough it was a lot more subtle than in the original. If it was a dream though, his wife is going to be wondering why he's so pissy at her all the time.

- People can in fact use their imaginations to conjure up people they've never met. That was realistic and doesn't take away from the ambiguity.
