If you can recall the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger original, this remake starring Colin Farrell may be a bit of an anti-climax.
But, on its own terms, it entertains with a steady stream of slam-bang action.
Ordinary guy Farrell signs up for a memory-implant vacation and puts his life in danger when he inadvertently unlocks his secret past as a spy.
Farrell pulls off the frenetically choreographed fights and chases impressively, as do co-stars Kate Beckinsale, as his wife, and Jessica Biel, as a feisty rebel fighter.
Even if it’s all been done before, the relentless pace and talented cast keep you watching.
