When a man goes on a virtual vacation using memories of Mars, unexpected events force him to go to the planet for real - or does he?

USA | 113 min | R | DCP | Dir. Paul Verhoeven

When a man goes on a virtual vacation using memories of the planet Mars, an unexpected and harrowing series of events forces him to go to the planet for real - or does he? (IMDB)

"There may be people who overlook the Arnold Schwarzenegger performance in "Total Recall" - who think he isn't really acting. But the performance is one of the reasons the movie works so well. He isn't a superman this time, although he fights like one. He's a confused and frightened innocent, a man betrayed by the structure of reality itself. And in his vulnerability, he opens the way for "Total Recall" to be more than simply an action, violence and special effects extravaganza." - Roger Ebert
