Sexier, Better ‘Total Recall’ Fight: Schwarzenegger Vs. Stone (1990) Or Farrell Vs. Beckinsale (2012)?

total-recall

When Columbia Pictures releases Len Wiseman’s Total Recall, in theaters August 3, a lot of us will be shocked at how similar it is to Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 adaptation of “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Thus far nothing says otherwise.

The studio just now released a third clip from the film that mirrors a classic fight sequence from the initial sci-fi epic, which begs the following questions: which fight scene is better, and who would you rather have kick your ass?

Below we’ve added both the fight between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone in the 1990 version, alongside the scuffle between Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale in the reboot. Personally, I’d rather have Beckinsale jumping in my face. You?

In the remake, “Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston) – there is no one Quaid can trust, except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

    I don’t care how much more stylized the fight in the remake is compared to the original…nothing is worse than two solid kicks to the goodies.

    Kate and Collin no contest!! i never liked Anrie or his film. Sharon Stone was pretty cool though.

    I’ll take 1990 Sharon Stone in my face over Kate – Kate’s hot as hell, but a little goodie twoshoes and self conscious. Stone’s so sexual and slutty I might need three condoms and a zip lock bag but I’ll take devilish in bed over cute anyday.

    God I am so tired of everybody and their mother being masters of karate, or ju-jitsu or whatever that crap was. And why in Gods name remake this movie. Can skip right by this one

    wow everything I see from this remake looks like they really didn’t bother to bring something new to the screen with this one. That said, I wouldn’t mind getting a slide crotch to the face from Kate Beckinsale
