The Remake of Total Recall Is Totally Uncalled For

Jackie K. Cooper | Posted 10.05.2012 | Entertainment

Total Recall presented Arnold in his action star mode and the movie was a modest success. Still it wasn't a big enough hit to justify a remake some twenty years later. But remake it they did and now Colin Farrell is the star.
