    Less understandable is why this TV version also reaches to "Alien Nation" for inspiration, which it does by pairing Easton's David Hume with an android partner played by Karl Pruner. Also baffling is the under-utilization of Cynthia Preston as Hume's wife, although doubtlessly she will figure more prominently in later episodes. [5 Mar 1999, p.117]

    It's all pretty lame stuff, tainted further by Mario Azzopardi's frenetic direction. The effects are seamless enough, but pretty much beside the point in a story that feels not just reheated but terminally lukewarm. The primary problem with Total Recall 2070 is that we can't work up much in the way of enthusiasm or concern for its leaden protagonists, especially when the evildoer (Mancuso) is so much more interesting. [8 March 1990, p.58]

    It's all extraordinarily dark and forboding, not to mention violent and convoluted. The art direction and special effects are pretty cool, but it's simply not enough to make for interesting television. [6 Mar 1999, p.E06]

    It's too bad the filmmakers couldn't come up with original touches instead of recycling stuff that has already become tediously trite. Some of the explosions are pretty, and Easton has sort of interesting bow-tie nostrils -- but otherwise, the trip lacks trippiness. Total Recall 2070 is Total Forgettable 1999. [6 Mar 1999, p.C01]
