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.

There was, but in the Philip K. Dick story it is based on. Nothing he ever wrote is shallow in the slightest. They took his story and turned it into a Schwarzenegger action film. What did you expect?

I always loved the original, and hate that all these remakes are being made. Especially for a movie like this that isn't very old, and I doubt they're going to top. When a movie is already made, I don't see the point in doing it again. Make a sequel if anything. That's just me, though. In fairness, it could be a good movie itself. I just don't see the point. Not everything should be remade, especially pretty recent movies. There's a place for remakes, but Hollywood got carried away years ago.

The Philip K. Dick story is 20 pages long. I'm amazed somebody could make even one movie from it, let alone 2.

Of course the whole alien Mice that want to take over the world subplot was totally untouched in the original...

Hollywood is getting weaker and weaker. Remake after remake.
21 Jump Street? Miami Vice? Total Recall? New Spiderman? New Superman?

Upon many more. When will they remake Forrest Gump? Maybe a Cosby Show movie? How about a Full House movie?

Pathetic attempt at money grabbing. What happened to original movies - this spells the complete demise of Farrell's career as well.

I won't watch either. Spiderman looks just the same as the Maguire/ Raimi ones. 21 Jumpstreet was an average show, and I can't watch anything that fat ass actor is in. The guy is so crass, and I love edgy comedians, I just find Jonah hill annoying as hell. He's a huge try hard.
