Total Recall (2012) gets average or below average reviews.  Perhaps I’m one of the few people who like this more than the 1990 version.  I remember that I loved the 1990 version when it came out.  But watching it again 22 years later, I found a few things that I don’t like that much, such as Arnold using innocent people as a shield.  In this 2012 version, many details are changed, and I’m impressed by the production design.  There seems to be a lot more action this time – although the action sequences are not better than some other great action movies, I think they are satisfactory enough.  I have only one issue with this version – the motive of Kate Beckinsale and why she chose her path is not clear.
