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. Now the story really begins and it's a rollercoaster ride until the massive end of the movie.Written by

During Richter's first encounter with the hologram Quaid, the left side of the hologram's neck is bloody, the same as Quaid's. When Quaid rounds one of the reactor columns and meets his own image, the hologram Quaid has blood on the right side of his neck. See more »
[Doug awakens from a nightmare]
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.

In the original film prints, there is a single company credit (Metrolight) for Skeleton Sequence (about a minute before the end of the credits, shortly before ILM); this is because the company was new and didn't know how to negotiate to get individual names listed. When the team was lauded for their CGI work, names were added in for the videotape release (but the credits returned to the original on DVD and Blu-ray). This is mentioned, with visuals of both versions, on the Models and Skeletons special effects documentary on the Blu-ray. See more »
I first saw this in 1990 on a vhs i used to own.
Revisited it recently.
The three boobs n the comedic bulging eyes stayed with me from a tender young age.
The film has lots of action, some violent scenes, good one liners n Arnie's fine acting at display.
Surprisingly, this time he doesn't get to go shirtless or in a vest.
The mutants mayb disturbing for some viewers.
This was one of the earliest one to deal with a secret agent losing memory and all. Way before Bourne Identity and Jackie Chan's Who am I.
