I watched the new Total Recall last week. Visually it looked impressive and while I understand the pacing changes I still prefer the old version. Sure, in many scenes it feels clunky, and you can definitely argue about the actors' performance, but at least Paul Verhoeven left open the story for the viewer to decide – was it reality or just an artificial dream.
 
The draft and the first detailed version – it was okay, but it was too calm, and the REKAL machine was too subtle
