For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he’s got a beautiful wife who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life - real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man as he finds himself on the run from the police.
A factory worker, Douglas Quaid enjoys his life as he has a stable job and a lovely wife. Things were running fine until Douglas came across a company called Rekall which promised to grant memory of the spying adventure. Douglas agreed to take this offer and gets his memories implanted. The situation takes a different turn when the system breaks down while the implantation of the memory is done. Now Douglas escapes and joins with the rebel soldier to accomplish a mission to eliminate the head of the resistance, Chancellor Cohaagen and a power-crazy leader who want to control the entire world.
Got a chance to see this movie yesterday before release. I got the ticket free as it was a pre release company sponsored show. I never wanted to see this buying ticket on my own anyway as I thought it would not give me anything new and the trailers didn’t interest me. And as I expected , it was not. It had full flavors of Bourne movies and Terminator Salvation and other spy movies. However having said that, I expected nothing form this movie and it actually surprised me. let me tell you why.
First of all, though the story is not original, once the movie gets its pace, its never stop. you can’t literally take your attention off it. Full of thrills, Great visuals, robots, machines, class warfare, awesome cars and gadgets…and you know what ..however old the stories are, if the screenplay is good, you will enjoy the movie…All the Bourne movies had kinda same theme and we still enjoyed it..same with this one. You will like it if you like action and video games. I will give it 6 and a one time good watch. Not anymore as I said earlier, from a story and theme wise, it offers nothing new and rather a clumsy climax.
