Len Wiseman is good at what he does -- and what he does is make mindless action films. Unfortunately, that makes him a poor choice to direct a remake of 'Total Recall,' since what makes the material so great is the fact that it's anything but mindless.
Wisemen is totally uninterested in the very thing that makes 'Total Recall' interesting -- namely its poker-faced presentation of a story with two totally viable interpretations. Is what we're watching really happening? Or is it all a dream? In investigating the nature of reality amidst a barrage of chases and fight scenes, the first 'Total Recall' was a unique pleasure: an action movie with brains and brawn. Wiseman strips away the subtext and ambiguity, puts his head down, and barrels along from one scene to the next.
Are you guys ready for some action? Before you answer that, we should clarify: Are you ready for a 'Total Recall' featurette that focuses on how they filmed the action sequences?

A slew of oddly-cropped ‘Total Recall’ images were added to Sony Pictures’ official site for Len Wiseman’s reboot of the classic sci-fi thriller, showing us pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the upcoming summer blockbuster: guns, babes, and a frazzled Colin Farrell trying to decipher reality from deadly fiction.
New on DVD, Blu-Ray and On-Demand this week: 'Underworld: Awakening' will wake fans up, while 'the Vow' is all set for snuggie-clad date night viewing. Vampires, amnesia and a cult comedy full of kool-aid colors and poisonous strangeness all come home this week!
Borrowing a page from the website Trailers From Hell, Len Wiseman has done a commentary track for a trailer. But in this case it's not an obscure or classic film, it's for his upcoming remake of 'Total Recall,' which hits theaters August 3.
This weekend the first trailer (the teaser trailer) for Len Wiseman's 'Total Recall' is going to premiere. But until that time, we have the teaser for the teaser trailer.
