    The real important question is, how was the three breasted chick?

    About the only thing going for it was Kate Beckinsale. Movie was good on visuals but I liked the original better.

    I liked it, too. It's different than the original and yet enough of the same to make it fun. The 3 breasted lady was on for barely a second. I thought Kate was better in the role than Michael Ironside was.

    The original IMO was killed with too many cheesy lines and a failed attempt to throw in some humor. The original was like Independence Day, all the potential to be great ruined with comedy and bad acting. I liked the new Recall much better because it was more serious. My idea of a perfect Independence Day would be to leave Jeff Goldblum in but replace Will Smith with Jeremy Renner and replace Randy Quaid with Kurt Russel.

    I agree, except replace Will Smith with Jason Batemen. Will Smith did a great job in that movie though. I gotta find that movie on Blu-Ray now! :wavey:

    Comparing the new one to the original is almost like apples and oranges. The new one is a great stand-alone sci-fi action flick, but the original is over-the-top awesome in its own right.

    Yep, her and Jessica. Yummy times 2. Several great "Beckinsale's ***" shots in the movie, but overall it fell flat. Barely rent-worthy.

    So do they ever go to Mars in this one or is it all on Earth?

    It looks cool, and I definately want to see it.

    I don't want to give anything away but the story is changed in this one and it's a much better story, better acting, more action and hotter women:wavey:

    This was my experience as well. Seemed to be a mix between the original "Total Recall" and "I, Robot" to me..

    Throw in some Blade Runner ambiance in there, too.

    I agree 100% with M&P. Better story, better acting, better action, better effects, hotter women!

    Yeah, but the original was barely better than Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (my current vote for worst movie ever released in theaters).

    Kate Beckinsale AND Jessica Biel in the same movie.

    That alone makes it a must see movie.

    Haha, yeah. My wife punched me because I couldn't stop talking about about the wake up scene at the beginning of the movie.

    I liked it better than the original. Better acting; better action. I did like how they kept the line, "What can I say? I give good wife."

    This Total Recall is different enough from the original that I like it.

    Arrnollld's version was highly entertaining in that campy, comedic way.

    This version is more action packed and better paced WITH two hot chicks. Too bad Jessica Biel wasn't featured in a skin tight catsuit.

    The weird part was somehow I kept thinking that Rhona Mitra was the bad girl instead of Kate Beckinsale and I kept asking myself what happened to Rhona Mitra's fake boobies.
