Douglas Quaid is a boring man with a boring life who dreams of one day visiting the colonies on Mars. Due to harsh conditions and uprisings, that’s just not a safe place for a boring person to go. So he visits Rekall, a company that can implant memories, hoping to have all the memories of a Martian adventure with none of the danger.
This would be a flawless plan if it didn’t accidentally trigger hidden skills and unlock his true identity as a resistance spy. Heck, even that might be manageable if it didn’t become clear that he’s embedded in a deep cover operation surrounded by people who want him dead. Then again, perhaps the sudden danger is all in his mind. Will he risk his life to find out which is his true reality?
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paul Verhoven team up for a sci-fi classic that holds up, filled with memorable moments and Oscar winning visuals.
