Synopsis:

Arnold Schwarzenegger explodes out of the year 2084 A.D. with gut crunching, white-knuckle, nonstop action, as he smashes his way through a horrifyingly real fantasy world, complete with a gorgeous, but deadly, wife (Sharon Stone), and into a mind-bending nightmarish reality of a Martian mining colony ruled over by a terrorizing dictator (Ronny Cox), who can alter reality to suit his whim. The red planet erupts with rebellious mutants, the fire of an alluring and mysterious woman (Rachel Ticotin), and a vicious and savage enemy.

In this film, directed by Paul Verhoeven, with special effects by Dream Quest, it’s total war… total action… total Schwarzenegger… Total Recall!
