Total Recall (2012)
If only it hadn't been a "remake"!
This film had an amazing set and brilliant special effects. Its only letdown was that it dared to maintain it was a remake.
It would have possibly been a brilliant film as a standalone movie. I could have watched it happily, been a little bit bored maybe, and have only seen the installing of a memory as something taken from Total Recall. It seemed to completely reinvent the plot, so if you're going to see a Total Recall remake, you're only going to be sorely disappointed. See it as something that just happens to share the same name, you're more likely to enjoy it.
Of course, when I say it reinvented the plot, I'm choosing to presume that somewhere beyond my own misery and personal frustration that there was a plot. I couldn't see it though. Maybe someone else had more luck with that.
It's basically like someone's remade Terminator, only minus time travel, cyborgs or a hunt for John Connor, but at least Sarah Connor's still in it.
