The instinct to avenge a partner's death is something you don't see anymore.
Yeah, I can see how that would get lost when you live your life under a surveillance camera.
You're not suggesting the attempts to make this a safer and more perfect world have actually resulted in a loss of individual freedom, are you?

Don't mistake this with Verhoeven's masterpiece. In fact other than minor references to the orignal movie and Rekall taking center stage now as the primary nemesis, the two worlds are like two worlds. It's a different setting, different mood and none the better with the lackluster performances and horrid writing given. I found Arnold's one-liners even more spectacular than this. The first time I saw this, the plot didn't flow. Some of the scenes were tacked on, with very lame dialogue. The characters were more or less what you are already accustomed to, nothing new. An overconfident and suave cop, his clueless Terminator like partner, the corrupt businessmen, blah blah. In the end 2070 is a boring series trying to make money off of the name only Arnold can bear.
