    A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall - a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led - goes wrong and he finds himself on the run.

    I welcome Colin Farrell's return to mainstream acting, even if it has to be in the form of remakes. The world of celebrity is rather boring without him: he's mysterious, literate, and able to withstand tabloid journalism. I mean, Elizabeth Taylor called him the reincarnation of Richard Burton. No, Total Recall doesn't need to be rebooted because it's a genre classic; yes, the fact that Underworld's Len Wiseman is behind the camera doesn't inspire the most confidence -- if only he were the second coming of Paul Verhoeven?! Thankfully, this cast is shaping up nicely.

    I think you are hugely misinformed, firstly, the remake has been called Turtle Recall, and is about the heady days of Ninja turtles, the plot is that a batch of turtle toys are faulty, and have to be recalled, it is an exciting plot with a twist at the end, the twist being they are not really turtles, but tortoises, great film! strongly recommended

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
