Serious Jest: (Worth Watching) A cross between Total Recall and RoboCop, this film is entertaining and has enough of its own spin to make it a more-enjoyable alternative to the Total Recall remake. The acting is good and the special-effects are appropriate. The action scenes will hold your attention but are not mind-blowing by any means. I’d recommend this flick as a decent rental for a night in, but I wouldn’t call it a Must See.
