This review of "Total Recall 2012" by AmericanKabuki makes me a bit feel like going watch it. In the movie they seem to use a technology that seems advanced compared what we "have" (are forced to use) right now but in fact it is rather sticks and stones compared to what hidden and forbidden tech is already able of.
Total Recall Forgot About Mars
An AK Movie Review
I did an impulse movie tonight. Total Recall. Who could forget the Arnold Schwarzenegger original? If you expect another jaunt on Mars about a colony planet civilization seeking freedom forgidda 'bout it. It was deleted from this version of the movie. Mars has been replaced by Australia. Well Ayers rock does kind of look like something from Mars I suppose...but it doesn't make an appearance.
The entire plot revolves around two surviving post-apocalyptic nations (oh how I miss the optimistic future in Star Trek! ). The United Federation of Britain (UFB) and The Colony (Australia). Britain apparently has annexed most of Western Europe after the Rothschilds bankrupted them (I'm reading between the lines) and they're all ruled from London in a kind of Rothschild wet dream. Everything in the movie is rather wet - even Sydney. Botany Bay seems to have been tiled over with left over Cube Habitats from the 1967 Montreal Expo. The French probably got tired of them. Seems the Brits have decided to use the Antipodes for their domestic grunt work force, at least those bits they haven't automated yet, the cops are all robots. Just like the ones in Anaheim! Shoot to kill. Not much humanity needed in that job description.
Now this is where the plot gets kind of weak, they've got levitating and MAG LEV cars, cubical elevators that run on MAG LEV tracks in three dimensions, but they had to drill a hole in the earth to Australia to commute the Aussies back and forth to London in a globe spanning World Tunnel. The can do all this and can't travel through a cheap worm hole? I know people that create portals with PVC merkavas, a rodin coil and a MP3 player. Did the Brits stick to form and call it the Wunnel? Nope...its called "The Fall". The implications of that Biblical word is quite obvious. Fallen Brits live in Australia. And they are rebellious. The Mythical Criminal Class.
The Aussie end of the bargain in this Rothschild miasma is like a bad day on Blade Runner, without the Mexicans, flying Japanese Blimps, curbside gene splicers and LA Smog. The Aussies have their country poisoned by some unnamed poison gas, so they all live in one big city. But what you do expect of Whitehall when it comes to the Prisoners of Mother England? Some of the plot is the same but to be honest I felt much less sympathetic to Sharon Stone's version of the female villain in the original than I did the femme fatale in this version. Sharon Stone really knows how to play a bitch! How can you hate Kate Beckinsale? I found her flaws simply patriotic, in a demented British kind of way. She's a good Tory and she's just doing her job for Queen and Country. Probably on the same steroids Thatcher used anyway - and you know how militant Maggie got until she bollocks'ed her career with that damn poll tax. (Ssshhh...don't mention poll taxes to Romney! He'll make poor people pay the same property tax as rich people....)
This movie is laced with symbolic references to the Cabal, including the UFB national logo, a Zionist Star with an extra triangle overlaying it. Perhaps the additional triangle is the one eyed pyramid? Someone has mined the Internet for information! Heavy mention of resistance against the UBF while the UBF is busy doing false flag attacks. Symbol hunters will have a field day with this movie, can't wait till David Icke gives it a go. I predict this movie will be panned by critics.
Its not really that bad of a movie, I'd go see it just for the SciFi imagery and symbolism. I hate the strobe lights at the beginning. That's a cheap trick to cover a bad set. I hated that same technique in the Alien movie by Ridley Scott. Total Recall 2012 is a mash-up of many Sci Fi movies. You'll find yourself counting them.
I thought for a minute they were going to reprise the Fat Lady with the dividing head in Australian Customs, but the director did a fake off homage on that, and took it another direction. I'd say I won't spoil the movie, but if you seen the original and cut out the Mars bits you've seen this one. The only mutant is the 3 breasted prostitute and to be honest they flashed that so quickly I (pardon the pun) barely caught them.
I miss Mars. Richard Hoagland you told us there'd be Mars in this new one.... Did I mention no Mars? Arnold your legacy is safe, even if your tenure as Governor sucked. At least this movie was well edited, which is more than I can say for John Carter.
The movie ends with a billboard in the background that says "Total Recall 2012"......hmmmmmmmmmmmm. We can only hope.
I give this movie 3 out of 5 chrysanthemums. ۞۞۞۞۞--
