KANSAS CITY, Mo. - This 2012 version of Total Recall is a lot different than the original.
Colin Farrell replaces Arnold Schwarzenegger as Douglas Quaid, a man who beings to think he is a spy after visiting Rekall.
Rekall is a program that provides its clients with implanted, fake memories.
Things start to turn sour, when he learns he was once a secret agent and soon finds himself on the run.
Quaid spends the majority of the movie fighting to get his true identity back.
"When I saw the artwork and the concept when I read the script, I went 'this is something I'd really love to see. This is the world I want to be taken to'", said Farrell.
Director Len Wiseman is the man behind this new movie.
He's known for action hits like Underworld (also starring Kate Beckinsale) and Live Free or Die Hard.
These are two good flicks, but is this enough experience to make Total Recall a hit?
I believe this one falls short; not only at the box-office, but in the hearts of fans.
Farrell has trouble finding his real identity and so does the movie itself.
"It's not officially a remake. But if you ask me, it is a hybrid of the two. Of Philip K. Dick's work and inspired also by Paul Verhoeven's film", said Wiseman.
Total Recall is a movie that never needed to be remade, reworked or whatever Wiseman wants to call it.
It has no true identity and fans will be struggling to get through it themselves.
This one will fall at the box-office and in the end, fans will hope their memories are swiped from this bomb of a summer movie.
Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and John Cho also co-star in Total Recall.
Total Recall is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, some sexual content, brief nudity, and language
Runtime: 1 hour and 58 minutes
