Playing The Field was a much better title for this dull alternative to the holiday lineup. America’s go-to stud for hire, Gerard Butler, plays a retired Beckham-styled soccer star who moves from Europe to Virginia to mend fences with his wife and build a relationship with his young son.

movieline.com – Friday’s Total Recall reboot trades heavily on brand enthusiasm for Paul Verhoeven’s original 1990 dystopian sci-fi actioner, but its makers had to be careful not to invoke too much of the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle. And cool as it would’ve been to see the former Governator pop up in the new, grittier reimagining starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and Bryan Cranston, director Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) explained to Movieline why he chose not to indulge his inner fanboy. 2 years 11 weeks ago via jackiechan
