Sheesh. The cops in the future are really, really dumb. Now granted, I’m sure Colin Farrell’s character in the “Total Recall” is a super badass and whatnot, but come ON, he grabs one guy and shoots like a dozen more and they just stand there the whole time waiting for him to shoot them one by one by one? Dude. Maybe it’s all that sofa padding they have on that makes them move like snails. What’s the deal with that? I guess future cops spend a lot of time jumping out of windows or something that they need all those bulky padding. Just sayin’.
Here’s your first, heavily edited clip from Len Wiseman’s “Total Recall” reboot. It’s the same sequence you’ve probably seen a dozen times already by now, featuring Farrell going in for his recall fantasy, then John Cho pulls a gun on him, then cops show up, and Farrell kills everyone. This was really cool … when I saw it the first 24 times.
“Total Recall” also stars Bryan Cranston, Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Jessica Biel, Ethan Hawke, Bokeem Woodbine, and Will Yun Lee, no doubt playing another bad guy. Asian actors always end up playing bad guys in Hollywood. Sheesh.
The film opens August 3, 2012.
