We've been warned. This is not going to be the TOTAL RECALL that caused you to go home and dredge up mental images of chicks with three tits before you flogged your log to sleep. Colin Farrell is no Arnie. But let's examine that for a second. Farrell has been on a roll lately, nearly impossible to find fault in the performances that he's turned in, especially since he successfully got himself through rehab. IN BRUGES had Colin creating one of the most interesting film characters to come along in a very long time. Even in the weaker CASSANDRA'S DREAM, he brought a tortured madness to his role that no one else in the film could match. HORRIBLE BOSSES? You know
he was one of the biggest draws in getting butts into seats for that flick, people chomping at the bit to see him frumpy with a comb-over. And after I went to Monsterpalooza this past weekend and attended the panel for the original FRIGHT NIGHT, even Chris Sarandon put a big seal of approval on Colin's updated take on vampire neighbor Jerry. I plan on watching this new TOTAL RECALL. And I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm going to like it. A LOT.
