Great actors who didn't have to do much. Another answer to Why We're Here. I weep at the end. The music was very good, the special effects were pretty good. A little quiet if you're in the mood for action.

I don't see what people have against this film. The cast is wonderful. The plot works great and is highly interesting with several surprises and twists throughout. I enjoyed this film from beginning to end.

I never got the obsession directors had with Mars. I remember seeing this in the theater and actually contemplating asking for a refund. I didn't think the actors fit their roles and I had to suspend my disbelief to the point of breaking.

I can't seem to figure out the problem people have with this movie? It has a great director, talented cast a good script, and some beautiful cinematography...the music isn't bad either. I like it a lot and think that sci fi fans should too.

"Mission To Mars" by Yojimbo

An interplanetary mission is launched to the red planet to discover the fate of an scientific team stationed there. Directorial hack Brian DePalma once again cack-handedly fails to conjure any sense of wonder or tension in this half arsed space adventure that's all dry techno babble at the start, giving way to ludicrous alien encounters at the end. The first half is basically Apollo 13 but even more dull, full of clumsy melodrama and absurd flag waving while the second tries desperately (and fails miserably) to create the kind of wonderment of 2001 or Close Encounters. Basically you have to endure an hour of space bound boredom just to find out that the pay off is really weak CGI and some unbelievably patronizing dialogue. It's a shame that a decent cast got involved in this simplistic no...

Mission to Mars really isn't a bad movie.  It might have ended somewhat unpredictably, maybe got a little border-line unbelievable, but isn't that maybe part of sci-fi?  it was a fun flick to watch.

I know it's science fiction - but I can only suspend by disbelief so much. Bad science is like bad history for me - when it's done deliberately, it just makes it hard to watch for me. Plus I didn't like the casting choices.

I actually totally dug this movie. Non-linear with some original and cool commentaries on the existence of man and life beyond earth. Possibly not enough laser guns and nudity for some people though...
