I remember really liking this movie as a kid, of course three breasted women tend to make an impression on a 13 year old. I am getting way ahead of myself though, lets start sooner than that.
Total Recall follows the life of Doug Quaid an average ordinary guy with a job in a rock quarry. One day he sees an ad on the subway for a product called Rekall, which helps you take a vacation without going anywhere. Essentially they implant the memories of the experience in your brain so you think you really went to the destination of your choosing, plan who you will see and what you will do ahead of time.
When Doug visits Rekall his life gets turned upside down. His coworker tries to kill him and he can't figure out why. Things really get crazy from here on out.
Overall this movie is really great, if you were not fortunate enough to see it back in the day don't worry it still translates well to today's audience unlike other Sci-Fi movies I could mention. I highly recommend that you check this one out prior to going to see the remake this summer.
I rate this movie five out of five smiley Mike heads. For pure creativeness in story line and special effects.
