Over paid, Decent, and just OK
7 February 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

For starters Arnold Schwarzenegger got paid $75,000 for his work on the Total Recall special edition DVD, of which this documentary is a part of.

After watching the Basic Instict special features, I expected much of the same from Total Recall's documentary, mainly because the two DVD's where widely advertised together.

While the backgrounds of the interviews in this edition are mainly the same as those used in Basic Instint (and vice versa), the magic (or goodness) seems to be lacking. For starters, where is Sharon Stone? Instead of bringing her in for live interviews, like they did for Basic Instinct, archive footage of 1989 is used. This same trick is used for actors other than Schwarzenegger. What, did they not have enough money? Pay Arnold too much perhaps??

Even the backstory is not nearly as interesting as Basic Insticts (instead of pickiting, we have a project that nearly went bankrupt and never got made. Pictures of Philip K. Dick and some information on original cast members (Total Recall sans Arnold) are good and a bit of a saving grace. However, Schwarzenegger just doesn't carry movies, or even documentaries like he used to.

Also, where is the conversation about the sequel that is on again off-again??

In the end, the movie Imagining Total Recall is just OK. Hmmm, imagine that.
