Same tale, with a few changes. No Mars, this time...chemical warfare has tainted most of the Earth. There's only two inhabitable regions: an enlarged British republic and "The Colony" (Australia).. Most of the "have nots" live in The Colony and commute on what's basically a super-subway which goes right through the Earth's core (obviously, advanced technology but you wouldn't catch me riding in the damn thing! Colin Farrel plays Quaid this time and does a good job. He's better actor than Arnold was at the tome. Plus at 14A, it doesn't have the unneeded gratuitous violence as in Verhoeven's version. Hauser, this time, has left plenty of recorded messages for himself to help survive. Also, in this version the government's propaganda machine has Colonists, who wish equality, as terrorists.
There are occasional pokes at the original and the film is incredibly fast-paced.
PS I gave it an extra star because the science was more real. In the first version, they supposed ended up with Mars with an Earth-like atmosphere. Unless the breathing air ice was in infinite supply, the air would just bleed quickly into space. Reason: Mars isn't massive enough to hold that much atmosphere.
