Quotes

James Calley: Before you go.
[pauses]
James Calley: The 12mm that killed the android?
David Hume: The out-of-policy 12mm?
James Calley: You have no knowledge of what happened to it?
David Hume: I have no knowledge.
[turns and leaves]
Martin Ehrenthal: [seeing gun on thermal scan] We can stop him before he leaves the building if you want.
James Calley: No. Let him hang onto the gun for the moment. I'm almost more interested in what he plans on doing with it than where it came from.

The story is based in the same world as "Total Recall" starring Schwarzenager, but the cinematography and style borrow much more from Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner". Moody and atmospheric, the visual style alternately recalls the smooth yellows and browns of Gattaca, and the stark contrast of film noir. The script is vague, stylized, and occasionally hard to follow; in short, everything that you find in a classic Philip K. Dick story. The soundtrack is moody and atmospheric, and certainly a cut above the average sci-fi film.

To be clear: this is not an action film in the way the original Total Recall was. There are no exciting chase scenes, and gunfights are rudimentary at best. This movie is a revenge mystery in the tradition of film noir and Blade Runner. Most of the movie is dialog and character interaction.

If you're looking for an action adventure, you probably won't like this movie. But if you want a new interpretation of PKD's world, done in a style very similar to his own, this movie fits the bill. Personally, I enjoyed this much more than the original Total Recall.
