「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

宇宙威龍,有 Sharon Stone 莎朗史東 合演的那一套。

【維基百科】In 2084, Douglas Quaid is a construction worker on Earth, but has troubling dreams about Mars and a mysterious woman there. His wife Lori tells him to ignore his dreams, pointing out how life on Earth is perfect compared to the ongoing conflicts between rival factions on colonized Mars, in part due to actions by the governor of Mars, Vilos Cohaagen, with rumors that an alien artifact has been located in the mines on the planet. Despite warnings from his co-workers, Quaid visits "Rekall", a company that uses memory implants to give its clients experiences of fabulous vacations. Quaid opts for a trip to Mars including an optional espionage facet.

As he is put under but before the technicians can implant the memories, Quaid violently reacts, claiming they have blown his cover. The company re-sedate him, wipe his memory of the visit to Rekall, and send him home in an automated taxi. Waking up at home, Quaid is soon cornered and attacked by his coworkers, forcing him to kill them to escape.

Lori also turns against Quaid, claiming that their marriage is a fake created by memory implants. Quaid leaves her and escapes into the city before armed thugs arrive, under command of Richter, Lori's true husband and Cohaagen's subordinate.

【維基百科】Quaid is contacted by an unknown man that warns him he is being tracked, and leaves him with a suitcase. Taking steps to disrupt the tracking device, Quaid takes refuge in an abandoned building and investigates the suitcase, which contains money, gadgets, and a video. The video is of himself, but calling himself "Hauser"; Hauser explains that he used to work for Cohaagen but has learned something about the artifact, and underwent the memory wipe as to protect himself.

The video instructs Quaid on removing the tracking device, and then to get himself to Mars and meet "Kuato". Quaid arrives at Mars and avoids Richter's men, checking into the colony's hotel. He follows clues left by Hauser to a bar in Venusville, the colony's red light district populated by a number of mutants due to the poor shielding.

There, he meets Melina, the woman from his dreams and Hauser's former lover. She refuses to have anything to do with him.

【維基百科】On return to his hotel, Quaid encounters Lori and Rekall's President, Dr. Edgemar. Edgemar insists Quaid is living out the implanted memories, and offers Quaid a pill that would wake him from the dream. Quaid refuses to take the pill when he sees Edgemar sweating, and kills him instead.

Richter's forces burst in, but Melina arrives to help rescue Quaid, killing Lori in the process. The two race back to the Venusville bar, and with Benny, their taxi driver, escape into tunnels hidden behind the bar. Unable to locate Quaid, Cohaagen isolates and shuts down the ventilation to Venusville, slowly suffocating the citizens there. Quaid, Melina, and Benny are taken to a resistance base, and Quaid is introduced to Kuato, a deformed humanoid conjoined to his brother's stomach.

Kuato reads Quaid's mind and learns that the artifact is a reactor that once activated will create a breathable atmosphere for Mars. Suddenly, Cohaagen's forces burst in, led there by Benny, and kill most of the resistance, including Kuato; Kuato, in his final words, instructs Quaid to start the reactor.


新與舊 Total Recall



【維基百科】Quaid and Melina are taken to Cohaagen. Cohaagen shows them another video of Hauser, who reveals the whole ploy was to create the Quaid persona that would be able to get close and lead Cohaagen to Kuato to end the resistance. Cohaagen orders Hauser's memory to be reimplanted in Quaid, but before they can do so, Quaid and Melina escape, making their way into the mines where the alien reactor is located.

They work their way to the control room of the reactor, killing Benny, Richter, and the rest of his men along the way. Cohaagen waits for them in the control room, and insists that activating the artifact will kill them all.

Quaid and Cohaagen engage in in a firefight, accidentally blowing out one of the walls of the control room to the vacuum of the Martian atmosphere. Cohaagen is pulled out and soon dies from asphyxiation and decompression.

Quaid and Melina are also pulled out, but not before starting the reactor. As Kuato predicted, the reactor releases a massive plume of air that covers the surface of Mars, saving Quaid and Melina in time, and bursting the windows of Venusville, supplying its population with much needed air.

As humans walk onto the surface of the planet in its new atmosphere, Quaid takes a moment to wonder if he is still living the memory before turning to kiss Melina.




原版的 Total Recall 宇宙威龍,初看時故事的想像力給了我震堪!因為,可以用科技把人的記憶完全抹掉,再植入一段人造的過去人生,在二十年前是新的概念。


今年 2012了,1990 已經是二十多年前,那時香港人剛剛經歷過去 1989年的六四的洗禮,香港人蜂擁攪移民外國熱潮,怕的是不知九七回歸,香港會變成怎樣?


Total Recall 故事由一個特工,因為發現了一個秘密,靠植入一個 device,將以前的記憶完全洗去,給他的以往的人生重造一個人工的過去。不過卻出了問題,殘留的記憶片段,引起主角的疑惑,人的好奇心是很大的,沒有查清楚的事情,總是人很心癢癢,這就帶領著主角一步一步,挖掘出真相來,洗腦洗得唔湯唔水更添麻煩!


2012年,有重拍的 Total Recall



週四即是明天就在全港公映了,但沒我有暫時衝動即時去看。重拍的新版本仍然用舊名,只就譯名加上一個“新”字,叫:《新宇宙威龍》。新的把正義和邪惡集團的對抗,改為地球上東西方兩大陣營的敵我矛盾擺上檯,不知北京會不會讓這片在國內上映?但是近日香港因為洗腦,而鬧得熱烘烘,若改譯名為:《洗腦威龍》,就更加食正跳水!
