Douglas Quaid is haunted by a recurring dream about a journey to Mars. He hopes to find out more about this dream and buys a holiday at Rekall Inc. where they sell implanted memories. But something goes wrong with the memory implantation and he remembers being a secret agent fighting against the evil Mars administrator Cohaagen.

The red pill which Dr. Edgemar tries to force Quaid to take which he claims will allow to him to return to reality was later reused in The Matrix (1999) which Morpheus offers Neo two pills of his choice, where the red pill allows Neo to leave The Matrix. See more »

Doug? Honey, are you all right?
You were dreaming. Doug? Was it about Mars?
Is that better?
My poor baby. This is getting to be an obsession.

The Dubbed Japanese VHS release included the 6 seconds of the scene where Quaid sits in the memory implant unit in reverse with altered music after the credit roll. This was probably intended as a joke by the Japanese localization staff, but lead to major conspiracy that the major event of the film was certainly a dream. See more »
Total Recall is a fast paced sci-fi action movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way from beginning to end. For a movie released in the early 1990's, it has some very spectacular make-up effects, visual effects and special effects. This movie is sort of similar to Paul Verhoeven's other films. It is violent, bloody, it has some sexuality/nudity and some profanity. This movie has dark humour. Paul Verhoeven really knows how to use visual and special effects and dark humour whenever he is shooting a scene in his movies. This is one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best films, along with Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Predator. Total Recall is also one Verhoeven's best movies to date. This movie is worth a watch.
