Total Recall Movie Summary

Total Recall is a sci-fi film about spies, true love, and following one’s dreams of nearly dying a horrible death on the barren surface of a godforsaken planet run by crooks. Still better than Detroit though.

The movie begins with Douglas Quaid, a veritable everyman played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s a regular blue-collar guy, married to Sharon Stone, and made of about 300 pounds of perfectly-sculpted muscle. That central-north-western Iowa accent drives the ladies wild.  Incidentally, Collin Farrell will be playing Arnold’s character in the upcoming remake. The producers wanted to keep the theme of unusually large male anatomy, but take it in a fresh direction for the new film.

In the future, mankind has mastered space travel and colonized Mars. However, digital photography turns out to have been just a fad since we see a nice Fuji Film ad early on in the movie. Quaid is obsessed with Mars. His nightmares haunt him, and they take a mystery woman on a romantic hike of the red planet’s barren surface. He falls down a cliff only to suffocate, and explode in the vacuum. Still beats my prom.
