At no point in this terrible excuse for a review did the writer mention anything worth reading. The most this guy did was draw up the plotline and solicit the DVD. This website has turned out some foul reviews before, but I would be literally unfulfilled if I did not state my opinion as to this piece of literature on your website. Outlined the plot. Didn't mention anything about the aspects of filmmaking. Didn't really analyze the characters or the screenplay or comment on the final product, besides repetitions of "greatest sci-fi film ever". Didn't even elaborate upon the extremely interesting bit of information on the film's relation to Minority Report. Didn't inspire any intelligent inquisition other than that regarding your site's hiring process. Bullshit.

W-Man: "Didn't mention anything about the aspects of filmmaking."

Reviewer: "The special effects in this movie are excellent; supposedly, they spent millions and millions on the fake Mars sets, and I bet they’re glad it paid off."

W-Man: "Didn't really analyze the characters or the screenplay or comment on the final product, besides repetitions of 'greatest sci-fi film ever'."

Reviewer: Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfect for the role of Quaid. People can argue all they want about how bad an actor he is, but you can’t say that after seeing this movie. He pulls the film’s acting and stunts off with ease, all the while spitting out his catchy one-liners (“Consider this a divorce!”).

Sharon Stone is probably at her best here, seeing that her career went mainly down-the-drain from here on (okay, she won – or was nominated – for an Oscar for 'Casino.' This movie made her).

Paul Verhoeven directs this film, and there are no arguments that this is his finest work – by far. He was the director who went on to make such 'critically acclaimed' (*guffaw*) films such as 'Showgirls' and 'Hollow Man.' His only other film that was remotely good was 'Basic Instinct,' but this is still ten times better (Sharon Stone would not have starred in that film if not for 'Total Recall' – Verhoeven said so himself…)."

W-Man: "Didn't even elaborate upon the extremely interesting bit of information on the film's relation to Minority Report."

Reviewer: "Many people do not realize that 'Minority Report' with Tom Cruise is actually a sequel to this film, and Verheoven and Schwarzenegger had talked about making it for a long time, but now, it looks like the deal is off. There is still a sequel in talks, however, not based on a story by Dick. Supposedly, the company (Miramax, was it?) wants Arnold, Stone and Verhoeven back. Oh well. I, for one, am looking forward to it (though I don’t understand how Stone is coming back…prequel?)"

I, for one, thought this review was very good. I never knew about the relation of the two films, and all your statements "W-Man" are false. The reviewer does go into the film - in detail. He analyzes everything a reviewer should.

So I suggest that you should spam somewhere where someone might care what your false statements relate to.
