Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"See you at the party, Richter!"
- Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) after dispatching of Richter (Michael Ironside)
Academy Awards 1990 - Best Visual Effects
...A thunderous tribute to its star's determination to create, out of the unlikeliest raw materials, a patently synthetic yet surprisingly affable leading man...
New York Times
Arnold Schwarzenegger brings an effective blend of machismo and innocence to his role. Too bad director Paul Verhoeven lets brainless violence and tricky special effects swamp the cleverness of the tale itself. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
...Arnie does what he does best....TOTAL RECALL merits rose-tinted rewatching...
Rating: 4/5 -- You get the action, the cheese, and some good sci-fi and practical effects. What's not to love? Full Review
[N]otable as one of the last great FX extravaganzas of the pre-digital era.
Sight and Sound
Director Paul Verhoeven gooses the film with the same subversive wit he brought to ROBOCOP... -- Grade: A
Adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, Verhoeven's backdrop of competing alien factions.... and ruthless capitalists informs something even more broad: when every waking moment is a nightmare, sometimes it's best to retreat to our dreams. Full Review
Chicago Cinema Circuit
Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfectly cast as Quaid, a 2084 construction worker haunted by dreams of Mars in this crowd-pleasing science fiction spectacle. Against the wishes of his sexy blonde wife (Sharon Stone), Quaid goes to Rekall, a company that implants artificial memories, so he can "remember" visiting the red planet that is now being settled by human inhabitants. However, Quaid is actually an amnesiac secret agent from Mars--or is he' Enemy agents led by a thug named Richter (Michael Ironside) start trying to kill him before Quaid remembers anything more. Bullets and bone-crunching mayhem follow in large doses as Quaid heads to Mars to deal with mutants, ancient alien races, and Cohagen (Ronny Cox), a greedy capitalist controlling the colonists' air supply, in an effort to remember his real identity. TOTAL RECALL is based on the story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick and was a big box-office hit, helping to firmly establish director Paul Verhoeven as a specialist in darkly satiric, blood-drenched genre films. His next stop: BASIC INSTINCT, also with Stone.
In 2084, Quaid, a construction worker on Earth is haunted by dreams of another life on Mars. He goes to Rekall Inc. to have artificial memories of Mars planted in his head. However, during this procedure, a number of agents from Mars fear he will discover his mysterious true identity. Paul Verhoeven's film, based on a Philip K. Dick story, is a wild ride with eye-popping special effects.
