A fun sci-fi ride into no man's land!

These days a lot of people say that they're "into sci-fi" when, I think, they're really just into explosions and special effects. Most modern "sci-fi" movies couldn't generate a sense of wonder if they fell into a sense of wonder pit while being bathed in a sense of wonder beam emanating from a sense of wonder machine. This movie manages to pull it off. Recommended...unless you only watch The Matrix to see the bullet time FX, in which case you should take the blue pill and go back to sleep.

Well, being a sci-fi geek who sometimes drags her poor husband along for the ride, we did watch this whole movie. Though I'm not sure we should have. Kept thinking it was going to get better...

Aside from the dazzling special effects, this movie is a waste of space. (no pun intended.) I found it entertaining at the beginning. True, the acting was a tad over done, but I liked the story line. Then, it happened... the scene that completely made me lose interest and respect for the writers and director of this film. Tim Robbins' character overshoots his distance to the space craft and starts to drift into space. Connie Nielsen's character quickly lets out a lanyard and attempts to save him but it is a few feet too short. She cannot use her jetpack because she doesn't have enough fuel to reach him and return. THERE ARE TWO OTHER PEOPLE WITH JETPACKS, YET, THEY ARE SOMEHOW FORGOTTEN. Now, are we to believe that three people with jetpacks and a lanyard cannot rescue a guy slowly drifting away? Run yourself out towards the drifting man HALFWAY, have a second guy run out half the distance to you, and the third half again. Then using the lanyard, reel each party in piece-meal like. And these are some of the brightest minds we have to send up there? Well, instead, Tim Robbins character dramatically removes his helmet in the deep void of space and dies. Idiot. After that scene I TOTALLY lost interest and walked away. Mr. De Palma, next time you direct a film, do not underestimate your audience. It's insulting.

Why on Earth, or, uh, Mars, did this movie get so many negat
JOHN P. HANSSEN | ventura, CA USA | 05/16/2007

"You would think that the movie being reviewed here was a lame 50's or 70's B movie entitle "Attack of the Killer Blonde Bimbos" or something to that effect. I recently got a chance to view this entire film the other night and all I've got to say is "Man! This is a valuable lesson of not listening to the negative reviews before getting a chance to see the movie!! And, sad to say, this is exactly what kept me from seeing this movie for so long. I made the mistake of listening to all the negative ink about it. I can guarantee you that you will find this film at least very likable. The story is good and so is the acting, even though there may be a couple of hokey parts in the film. Most of it, though, is highly enjoyable and VERY believable. This has to be one best, as well as underrated, sci-fi films ever made. Definitely worth at least one viewing and definitely better than "Red Planet"!

I enjoyed the film.

"After having viewed the film at a cinema during its initial release, I purchased the DVD when it became available. I enjoyed the acting, the characters, the CGI, the music and the story. In short, I was entertained. Others have chosen to provide harsh comments. Personally, I enjoyed the film. I happen to be a science-fiction author and I like a good story. Mission to Mars provided that. I don't think Brian De Palma was trying to do anything more than entertain in an appealing way. As far as this reviewer is concerned, he succeeded."
Top-Of-The-Line Science Fiction
Stephen B. O'Blenis | Nova Scotia, Canada | 10/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Possibly the best near-future space exploration epic ever filmed, surpassing even such quality fare as "Stranded" and "2001" & "2010". Realistic and believable and fairly technical, but unlike too many skeptics-concious current science fiction, not afraid to dream big and speculate grand. Top-notch performances all around and oustanding technical aspects, plus superior characterization in a genre that sometimes seems to feel it has to make its players either cold and cynical or cocky and beligerent to be believable. Gripping from the start, with a fantastic finale, "Mission To Mars" is likely to awaken a curiousity for space, a sense of wonder and adventure, and an appreciation for the night sky in even the most jaded and disinterested hearts."
