After dispensing with a few space-jockey clichés, the movie focuses on a Mars-bound rescue mission commanded by Jim McConnell (Gary Sinise), whose team (Tim Robbins, Connie Nielsen, Jerry O'Connell) has been sent to retrieve the sole survivor (Don Cheadle) of a tragic Mars landing. During the sequence en route to Mars, De Palma's in his element with two suspenseful scenes (including a dramatic--albeit somewhat silly--space walk) that are technically impressive. But when this Mission gets to Mars, the movie grows increasingly unconvincing, finally arriving at an alien encounter that more closely resembles an astronomical CGI video game. But this is a $75 million Hollywood movie, and no amount of technical wizardry can lift the burden of a juvenile screenplay. Kudos to Sinise, his costars, and the special effects wizards for making the most of hoary material; shame on just about everyone else involved. --Jeff Shannon

Great special effects and imagery. Technical aspects of the actual mission and their findings are questionable. Read morePublished 25 days ago by R. Adams
Mission to mars was uniquely well cast and full of suspense. At the end, one wonders if the Cast-away Martians and the U.S. astronaut ever made it to a new home.Published 27 days ago by Edward C. Roberts

The price here is for the imported Region B/2 blu ray/dvd version, hence the expensive price. Additionally Region B/2 disks will NOT play in US players since they are Region A/1.
But you can find this movie in a Region A/1 Blu ray version for a very decent price. It comes bundled with the blu... Read More

|Mission To Mars on Region A/1 Blu-Ray??||
I'd love to purchase this title on blu-ray as well (I know for a fact I'm not the only other one here on this). Also, I sincerely hope it is NOT going to be the same price! lol
