For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid, even though he's got a beautiful wife who he loves, a mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation for his frustrating life - real memories of a 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 controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen, the leader of the free world - Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter to find the head of the underground resistance and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love and his true fate.
"Total Recall" is a doggone good time, with a bunch of nifty technical and visual flourishes, competently managed plot twists and elegant, Wachowski-esque action choreography ..." Andrew O'hehir Salon.com
"the story revolves around the unreliability of memory, and its substitution by another.... Wiseman's is a different take on the topic, and a pretty good one at that. " Steve Persall Tampa Bay Times
