'Total Recall' review

Total Recall series has been created by Art Monterastelli and there has been a conjecture about the plot similarities with Philip K. Dick’s short story. But in reality, only the concept of virtual locations is similar in both the pieces and nothing major similarities have been spotted in the series. However, there are some major similarities in the story elements as seen in the movie Blade Runner.

The story of the series is of a detective who sets out to solve a kidnapping case of a boy and the series gets a sci-fi touch when it is revealed that the boy is a psychic and his kidnappers are androids. The visual effects created by the production are commendable and looks believable and have managed to give a wonderful futuristic look to the series. The lead actors have managed to create a fine on-screen presence with their acting performances.
