Neither Arnold Schwarzenegger nor Paul Verhoeven have stretched their talents here.

There may be people who overlook the Arnold Schwarzenegger performance in Total Recall who think he isn t really acting. But the performance is one of the reasons the movie works so well.

Recall is full of the musclebound action that [Schwarzenegger s] fans presumably enjoy. It also means that this Mars-bound movie is violent, nasty and expensive (it cost Tri-Star well over $60 million).

A gratuitous explosion of vainglory and guts, the movie is all firecrackers and giblets and broken glass. The overall effect is like wading through hospital waste.

Melding the ever-more-workable Schwarzenegger mystique with a better-than-average science-fiction premise, the director Paul Verhoeven has come up with a vigorous, superviolent interplanetary thriller that packs in wallops with metronomic regularity.

A worthy entry in the dystopian cycle launched by Blade Runner, this seems less derivative than most of its predecessors yet equally accomplished in its straight-ahead storytelling, with plenty of provocative satiric undertones and scenic details.

The fierce and unrelenting pace, accompanied by a tongue-in-cheek strain of humor in the roughhouse screenplay, keeps the film moving like a juggernaut.

Total Recall is too much -- but it s too much of a good thing.

It s not a masterpiece, but it is a fast-moving thriller, one worth revisiting (and, evidently, remaking).
