Michael Rawlins is only 5'2", so when he was making a command decision or talking authoritatively, select camera angles had to be used to hide the fact that he was shorter than the people he was in charge of. See more »


Ehrenthal's voice is actually one-half a second ahead of his lips when he is dressing down Hume for arresting Richard Collector. See more »


James Calley: The instinct to avenge a partner's death is something you don't see anymore.
David Hume: Yeah, I can see how that would get lost when you live your life under a surveillance camera.
James Calley: 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?

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.
