Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a bored construction worker in the year 2084 who dreams of visiting the colonised Mars. He visits Rekall, a company that plants false memories into people's brains, to experience the thrill of Mars without having to travel there.
When something goes wrong during the procedure, Quaid discovers that his entire life may be a false memory and that the people who implanted it in his head now want him dead.
This film is the epitome of the 1990s. Total Recall is a wonderful movie filled with humour, charisma, satire and fast-paced action.
‘Total Recall is too much – but it's too much of a good thing’ – Entertainment Weekly
