Did You Know?


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: Before you go.
James Calley: The 12mm that killed the android?
David Hume: The out-of-policy 12mm?
James Calley: You have no knowledge of what happened to it?
David Hume: I have no knowledge.
[turns and leaves]
Martin Ehrenthal: [seeing gun on thermal scan] We can stop him before he leaves the building if you want.
James Calley: No. Let him hang onto the gun for the moment. I'm almost more interested in what he plans on doing with it than where it came from.

Having admired the first Total Recall, with Arnold, I thought I'd take a chance with this one, pretty good idea
5 March 2015 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

In the not too distant future, David (Michael Easton) is a dedicated employee for Citizens Protection, an updated moniker for police officer. There is, amazingly, not that much crime, mostly white collar stuff. Our Dave is also very happily married to Olivia (Cynthia Preston), a social worker. But, alas, one fateful day, David and is Russian partner are called to a chaotic scene at Total Recall Corporation. This is the outfit, you might know, that offers "mind vacations" to various wonderful destinations, like Aruba, for a rather hefty price. Encountering androids with weapons, something that is forbidden, David's partner is killed with a laser gun. Its a horror show. Scooping up an actual pistol from the early twentieth century, David guns down other androids who are trying to kidnap a Recall doctor. but, some andies get away. Back at CP headquarters, Dave mourns his lost partner and angrily explains the situation to his superiors. No one knows how the androids got armed. After a few days, David gets a new partner, odd Ian (Karl Pruner). Ian is aware that David believes it is too soon for him to be partnered with someone else. So, this odd officer treads lightly. Soon, his intelligence is obvious, helping David considerably. Two problems face them. One, they must prevent another android attack, and two, they must find the clairvoyant son of a couple who was brainwashed at Recall. Could these two events be connected? Yes! As a fervent admirer of Philip K. Dick, who wrote the tales of Total Recall, Do Androids Dream, and Minority Report, all of which have elements here, this new film is welcome. In fact, it was the pilot episode of a new Canadian series that ran for some 22 episodes in the late 90's. Therefore, it does appear less dazzling than an actual movie but more on par with other small screen ventures. Nevertheless, it has some great effects and concepts. It also has some fairly racy love scenes so viewer beware! The cast is quite nice, with Easton making a handsome leading man while Preston, Pruner, and the rest back him up nicely. If you are an admirer of PKD or science fiction, you will welcome the chance to stroll down this film avenue once more.
