Movie Info

Charlie joins his friends on a weekend trip to a remote cabin on the lake. They turn on the TV and discover hundreds of unnatural cloudlike clusters are hovering over Earth. The friends notice a similar eerie cloud floating high above their cabin. That night a beam of otherworldly light shoots down from the sky. They try to defend themselves, but aliens abduct a number of them and whisk them away to the mother ship. The remaining two of the group, Charlie and Annie must rely on an eccentric and mysterious local hunter who seems to have special knowledge of the attack. He explains this day has been prophesied for years and is part of multiple mass abductions by aliens, who have been guiding mankind's evolution from the very beginning.

Critic Reviews for The Recall

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Mauro Borrelli's The Recall has the look of a SyFy original movie and the self-seriousness of Ridley Scott's recent Alien films.

The Recall is the sort of movie you find wedged into an old VHS player purchased at a yard sale in the Kawarthas or sifted to the bottom of a mesh-wire DVD bin in a gas station somewhere on Highway 6.

June 2, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

So deathly dull that the film has exhausted our reserves of patience and goodwill long before we reach the outlandish climax.

The effects in The Recall are pretty well done, but it seems like the filmmakers blew their budget on a couple of big scenes (not to mention Snipes' salary), so for the bulk of the film, there's not much to see.

January 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.3/5 | Full Review…

The Recall is the kind of bad flying saucer movie you almost enjoy as much as a good one, just because it's so unaware of its own cheesy dumbness.

June 15, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Just about the only positive element contained within the seemingly endless proceedings is Wesley Snipes' unabashedly over-the-top turn as a mysterious hunter...

Audience Reviews for The Recall

One decent actor and one genuinely cool sequence in the third act does not balance the mess left by the other 90% of The Recall, but it's something.
