In Verhoeven's hugely expensive rollercoaster of violence, Arnie plays a construction worker whose vacational fantasy (implanted by Rekall Incorporated) is to pitch him into a netherworld of assassins and femmes fatales before unleashing the full truth about his nightmares of life on Mars. The crazy Dutchman's Martian chronicle, teeming with sicko incident, is powered along by bursts of gee-ain't-this-fun-brutality, but scores points for the playful ingenuity of the plotting, and Arnie looks like he's enjoying himself.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
A construction worker wants to experience the thrill of travelling to Mars by having a false memory implanted. But when something goes wrong during the procedure, he discovers that his entire life is actually a false memory.
