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
This movie is great, good acting, spectacular special effects, and a very good plot.
When you see the ending, you think the movie is bad, but then when you think about it some more it turns out to be a really bad movie.
His latest film, "Mission To Mars," is the director's first genuine science fiction movie.
Very interesting story line. If you enjoy this type of movie i say you will love "MISSION TO MARS". I did and enjoy having it in my collection.Published 22 hours ago by J. Reed

Much as I wanted to enjoy this movie it was a stinker. Weak story, weak writing and even weak acting by talented actors who seemed to just be going through the motions. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ann-Marie
