Recall - Total Recall (2012 film) - Netflix
Total Recall is a 2012 American dystopian science-fiction action film directed by Len Wiseman. The screenplay by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback was based on the 1990 film of the same name, which was inspired by the 1966 short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. The film stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, John Cho, and Bill Nighy. Unlike the first film, the setting is on a dystopian Earth, not Mars, and has more political themes. The film blends American and Asian influences, notably in the settings and dominant populations of the two nation-states in the story: the United Federation of Britain (Western Europe) and the Colony (Australia). The film was first announced in 2009 and was released in North America on August 3, 2012, grossing over $198 million worldwide. The film received generally mixed reviews from critics. It received praise for its action sequences and acting but the film's lack of humor, emotional subtlety, and character development drew some criticism.
Recall - Cast - Netflix
Colin Farrell as Douglas Quaid/Carl Hauser, a factory worker suffering from strange violent dreams. Kate Beckinsale as Lori Quaid, a UFB undercover agent posing as Quaid's wife. Jessica Biel as Melina, a member of the Resistance and Quaid/Hauser's love interest. She is six years younger than Hauser. In the extended director's cut, she is Matthias' daughter. Bryan Cranston as Chancellor Vilos Cohaagen, the corrupt and ruthless Chancellor of the United Federation of Britain. Bokeem Woodbine as Harry, Quaid's workmate and best friend – in fact an agent sent by Cohaagen to monitor him. Bill Nighy as Matthias Lair, the leader of the Resistance. John Cho as Bob McClane, a rep for Rekall who offers Quaid the chance to experience an imagined adventure. Steve Byers as Henry Reed, a cover for Hauser. Dylan Scott Smith as Hammond. Ethan Hawke appears uncredited as Hauser's original appearance in the director's cut. In the script as originally filmed, both Hauser's memory and physical appearance were heavily altered by the UFB to turn him into Quaid. This plot point was excised from the theatrical cut, so Hawke appears only in the extended director's cut.
