Arnold saves the day by activating the generator that provides Mars with a breathable atmosphere. It's possible that it was all a dream. In the beginning of the film Arnold gets dreams implanted. While doing so, the technician looks at the tape of the implanted memory and says: "Blue sky on Mars. That's a new one." This is the exact ending of the movie.
Question: There is a scene in the movie in which Arnie disguises as a woman to pass the entrance control in Mars. Moments later, the mask he's using starts to malfunction and he has to take it off. When he's doing that, we can see that the man who's playing Quaid is not Arnie but a stunt double. Why did the director choose a stunt double to replace Arnie in a scene that's not risky at all?
