I watched this movie at 3 AM so that I freak out and be scared, but all I felt was boredom and urges to give up and check a different movie to invest t in.

So heed my warning and don't waste your time.

don't waste your time for this movie unless you love Wesley Snipes or your seeing it for free.

It is a complete waste of your time and the $4 rental fee....

The movie is fun, and fast paced, with a story that actually brings up some interesting questions as to what it means to be human.

The plot is really engaging and unique.

I really enjoyed it.

The movie is fun, and fast paced .

It takes a bunch of common themes from these kinds of movies (yes movies are often just the same set of ideas over and over again) and it is entertaining.

This has got to be the worst movie I have seen in years.

The continuity is appalling and the story just plane boring.

Generic and boring .

A 1990 offering with a similar title (Total Recall), is ten times more exciting.

no story.

It mixes some suspense, sci-fi, slasher elements, but so little, and it's so bland...

Overall, it was entertaining to watch, fairly fast-paced, and went in some new directions that I really enjoyed.

It was confusing and annoying.

Cliché Ridden Snoozefest--Avoid!

I found it entertaining, visually pleasing, and funny in a few parts.

It's just forgettable and bland with nothing to make it stand out from every other similar movie in the genre.

Hopefully, the first 85 minutes will be as entertaining as the last 5 minutes next time around.

All in all, "The Recall" is adequately entertaining for a single viewing.

Other than that, don't waste your time with this if your intention is to watch a good movie cause 'good" is not in this movie.

worst movie in years .

However, he is the only compelling thing in it.

The acting was pretty good, the effects were OK, and while it has quite a few cliche moments, all in all I enjoyed watching it.

The movie is fun, and fast paced, with a story that actually brings up some interesting questions as to what it means to be human.

Once you through in the sappy backstories it really becomes unbearable.

Anyway, after a really dull first hour the film becomes a little more interesting when the kids get abducted by the aliens (there's a sense of intrigue in trying to discover what they're doing to the earthlings up there).

I guess you can go watch this when it's that particular night in which you're having issues sleeping (insomnia) and you need a pass time.

Strange, but Engaging .

This is the absolute worst movie I have ever, ever watched!

Please don't waste your time watching this - you will enjoy more watching paint dry.

However the rather generic and uncompelling teen characters as well as seemingly clunky shifts in both characterizations and reactions to situations made the film unbearable to watch.

I was just at that point of deciding whether to continue watching in hopes that the movie might become more compelling when I fell asleep at about the half hour mark.

A Dull Alien Invasion Movie Of No Value .

Basically, it's a disappointment that should be quickly forgotten, since there are countless alien invasion movies that are better and more exciting than this.

What I mean by "be entertained": Was the story engaging and did it move along at a good pace?

One of the worst movies i have seen, Wesley can do much better than this .. There are a lot of weird unnecessary dialogues to fill the awkward gaps of the story lines .. Jedidiah Goodacre CAN NOT ACT .. I do not understand why do we have to put up with this kid just because he appeals to some audience .. he does not have the talent and his character was one of the worst I have seen in years ..

Every cliché from the alien abduction genre is trotted out to dull effect.

In my list of the worst movies.

However, despite it turning out to be something of a mild curiosity piece by the end it is far too dull and boring for me to be able to recommend it.

Complete waste of time.

mostly i can say that it is really impossible to make a worst movie, this one hit the bottom.

This is a very predictable film.

The acting is adequate, the special affects are not terrible, and the story is interesting even though it is predictable.

The movie it self is worth watching.....

One trite, tired cliché after another.

It's a nonsensical film with a rather silly plot yet the director seems to play the material pretty much straight making the film feel heavy and dull -it's almost like he believed in his own nonsense which gives the film no sense of irony.

Total waste of my time.

Even the scenes on board the alien ship, once the young folk are all kidnapped, are pretty dull and bland.

It's full of Cliché's, and not in a good comedykind of way.
