Imaginative sci-fi flick sees Ahnahld in top form
I'm not really one to go see Schwarzenegger films, I've seen "The 6th Day," "Predator" and the "Terminator" movies, but I've always thought of him as one-note of an actor...and he is. But this movie really got me somehow, and I felt almost like a kid watching "The Goonies," because I was genuinely interested in the adventure aspect of "Total Recall." Along with the fast-paced story, it has some really spectacular makeup and special effects, extremely impressive IMO in 1990. My girlfriend's dad actually said this was his favorite film, and that I should check it out. While of course Arnold isn't a great actor, he's arguable the best action star ever, and his one-liners and romances with beautiful women are abundant here, just let your older teens see this because there's a lot of bone-crunching violence.
