When a man goes for virtual vacation memories of the planet Mars, an unexpected and harrowing series of events forces him to go to the planet for real - or does he?
Hauser/Douglas Quaid is a character who doesn't know who he is, yet people who DO know who he is are trying to kill him. Michael Biehn who starred with him in The Terminator (1984) played an almost identical role as a character named Eddy Kay in Timebomb (1991).
Doug? Honey, are you all right?
Lori: You were dreaming. Doug? Was it about Mars?
Lori: Is that better?
Douglas Quaid: Hmm.
Lori: My poor baby. This is getting to be an obsession.
There is a scene where Richter and Cohaagen have a videophone conversation in a car. Unless future technology can overcome physical laws......one cannot have a conversation with someone on Mars from Earth without a delay of about 12 minutes between transmission and reception of signals. The speed of light and distance to Mars prohibits a real-time conversation.
Play the Total Recall (1990) video game by Acclaim.
