Wait...it's PG-13?

Well better enjoying the cursing from the original:

I love the original; I'm not interested in the new cast outside of Beckinsale, but damn I saw the full trailor during the game this weekend, and it looks pretty sweet.

Seems like the remakes from the old movies are never as much fun. Total Recall from '80s was great story but was also FUNNY....great one liners.......the new movies always seem personality-less. Takes itself too seriously.

I'm not hysterically against remakes like some people, but their needs to be a purpose. What about this story was so great that required a remake?

i mean there really wasn't this untouched depth, or other things that needed to be explored IMO.

Im torn now...after seeing some clips. Looks action packed. Good actors in it to boot. Doesnt change my feeling on Hollywood constantly remaking movies.

But to me Total Recall with Arnold wasnt great. Its one of those movies you lump in with Top Gun. Karate Kid and such.

I've seen the trailer a few times now, and every time I see it, I get less excited for the movie.

looks like garbage each time I see the trailer...perhaps it will prove me wrong..does have a good cast and looks like plenty of action.

As I expected, the early reviews say it is crap: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/total_recall_2010/

I was hoping I was wrong and this would be good, but everything from actors, to the screenwriters, to the director are downgrades from the original, so these reviews are not surprising.
