Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall is an exploration of space and self…with guns, robots, and explosions!
Total Recall asks – how would you know if someone stole your mind? Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger) is haunted by recurring memories of Mars so he goes buys a holiday at Rekal Inc. (mind transplanters) but something goes wrong and he remembers being a secret agent fighting against the evil Mars administrator Cohaagen. This kicks off a series of events both he and the audience could never have imagined! Giving an existential crisis new meaning, Quaid wonders whether he exists and, if he does, who the hell is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s tough, smart and his journey is a fantastically explosive ride!
