I think a lot of people probably like the original Total Recall for the wrong reasons. I think if you were to do a Poll of why they like it, it would go something like "Arnold kills a lot of people in this. The FX and the Mutants are outlandish. It's got chicks with three  t i t t i e s ." But if you really break it down and look beyond the surface of the movie and zero in on the story, the premise of whether or not this is part of the implant from Rekall or if it's just a dream or if its actually happening is pretty ingenious because it keeps you guessing all the way to the very end. On top of that you have a really clever plot surrounding hijacking Oxygen on Mars and using that to control the planet, thus becoming a dictator of sorts.

If your a fan  Paul Verhoeven, then your sure to see a lot of similarities, visually from Total Recall, RoboCop and Starship Troopers. The aesthetic between these 3 definitely marks the time it was made and his own personal style, which today does kind of look a bit cheesy. But who cares. It's fun entertainment.

This is one of the Arnie flicks that always deserved a sequel back in the day. Unfortunately it never happened. And on top of that, some numbskull had the "brilliant" idea to reamake it. See Total Recall (2012). As for the original Total Recall, this is definite Buy for me.

They actually had a model at the Total Recall Booth at this years Comic Con, "modeling" her 3 'friends'. It cause quite the commotion on the floor.
