the "Total Recall" remake traffics in notions of duality, riddles of identity and, more to the point, hover cars. Hover cars! Honestly, what's cooler? Very little, that's what. "Total Recall" may depend on memory implants and ominous surveillance techniques to imperil our hero, played by Colin Farrell, but that stuff gets chucked out the window (just like Farrell, who's perpetually leaping off a balcony or a ledge and surviving yet another ridiculous fall) for the film's most gratifying stretch, an expansion of the hover car chase in "Minority Report." -- Michael Phillips
