4 DON'T RECOIL AT THIS RECALL!SECTION8 | 11/09/2012 | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Lets be honest ,this film was bound to be hated by the legion of avid fans of the 1990 Arnie classic. I too always had a soft spot for the orginal , but that's no need not to give this update a fair chance. This version keeps closer to the original source novel and keeps it's self on (and through) earth. Colin Farrell makes a for more believable everyman than Arnie as he wants something interesting to remember in his existance. Cate Beckinsale is outstanding as his wife/ex-wife and also Jessica Beil is great value as his fantasy girl. Once Farrell sits in the implant chair at Recall you are bombarded with scorching special effects, the best future city scapes Blade Runner and a none stop chase of fights, gun fire and near misses. I expected little from this film but extreamly impressed. It doesn't matter that the film is far less violent than the original, the same mind bending twists are in place and this update is far less corney. I'm not saying it's better than the 1990 film and this update will never get the same following, but this new vision is not a Total Write-Off.See If You Like......Total Recall (1990)I.Robot.Minority Report.Dredd.Blade Runner.
