    Also, TR is a hell of a lot more thought-provoking than your average Arnie movie. At the end, you're still not entirely sure whether the whole thing is in his head or not.

    I'm pretty sure it was real, though.

    Yeah I think it was real as well, but it does leave it a bit open.

    Because, if the whole experience was created by the Rekall company, it'd be pretty silly of them to insert their own company as in cahoots with the bad guys within that experience.

    If that makes sense. It's been a while since I've seen the movie.

    If it was real how come the girl he imagined in the centre looked just like the bird he ended up with?

    Subliminal memories or something?

    The fact you see the alien atmosphere processor on screen at Rekall along with the scenario ”Wow that’s a new one, blue sky on Mars” from the tech would suggest everything after Quaid gets plugged in isn't real.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    It wouldn't matter if it was a fictional reality in one man's brain though. Maybe Arnie has a niteninja complex and sees big corporations as inherently evil.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Not really, it's pretty much only loosely based on 'Wholesale'.

    My point exactly.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    It would be half as fun if it was a straight adaptation is my point.

    I thought the point was that the whole experience was created for him, not something created by his brain. Painting yourself as the bad guy within that experience would be a very bad career move. He could wake up and just start killing people.

    As he does in the movie!!1

    Also, introducing a doctor who tries to convince the patient that it isn't real into the simulation could have pretty bad consequences for his mental health.

    So, it's real.

    I'm still confused that he says he's hetero at the TR building but then doesn't tie Sharon Stone up.

    In the commentary Verhoeven says that everything from his first trip to Rekall onwards is a dream, Arnie insists that its all real and takes it all very literally.

    I think its pretty clear that Verhoeven is right, but I always watch it like Arnie as its more fun.

    He totally called it

    How can it be a 'dream' though? It implants a memory, so something that happened in the past. If he thinks the guy from his work was evil and he's killed him, how will his mind cope with that when he turns up to work the next day and he's there?

    At the end the clone goes back in time, in order to kill his rival's father, thus stopping him from ever being born. In the ensuing chaos, he encounters a dastardly villain clad in chainmail, with the ability to turn into a snake. After defeating this man he pushes onward, only to be thwarted by an invisible entity - who turns out to be his twin!
