Total Recall is fast-paced science fiction action-adventure that challenges what is real by having the main character of Quaid experiment with a "virtual holiday" where he could be anyone-in this case, he may or may not be a heroic character like in the James Bond films trying to stop a corporate villain and his lackeys who are on Mars. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Quaid struggles with identity, his wife trying to murder him, a mutant uprising and scores of henchmen to save the day and maybe figure out if this was all a dream or not! Fun, sometimes silly, with a deadly midget in fishnets handling a really big gun and a 3-breasted mutant.Erik M.
Question: At the beginning of the movie, Quaid has a friend at work (if my mind's not failing me his name is Harry) that tells him not to go to Recall because some person got lobotomised. Later, when Quaid is returning from Recall his friend stops him and tries to kidnap (or kill) him because Quaid "talked about Mars". I can't understand the role that this man has in the plot. Quaid told his wife that this man is a spy (I wonder how he knew that), and I'd like to know which side he seems to be fighting for (the Agency or the rebels).
