A group of astronauts stationed on Mars for six months is nearing their departure deadline. With less than 20 hours to go before lift off, a last minute discovery sends two of the group out to check a possible breakthrough discovery.

Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins, Salt) plays a claustrophobic astronaut that seems to dread his return trip to Earth. He leads a list of little known actors hampered by heavy space suits and close quarters trying to show some emotion as things on Mars go awry.

I don't write spoilers, reviews that reveal the plot lines of movies. What I am about to write is not a major plot point, not a spoiler, but it is part of the story, so if you want to see this movie and be totally surprised about every aspect, don't read any further.

I am totally over and done with zombies. You know “The Walking Dead”, “28 Days Later” and of course George Romero's “Night of the Living Dead” zombies. There have been literally hundreds of zombie movies. This movie was billed to be about Mars exploration and what happens? Gosh darned zombies again. The astronauts turn into flesh eating zombies. That's not even a very creative plot development for an episode of any Scifi channel movie, let alone a theatrical release feature film.

I wanted to like this movie. I liked the costumes, the designs and the tech. It looked so good at the start. The vehicles and set were as good as Ridley Scott's “Prometheus” for the first several minutes. The science started to fall short during the infection control and decontamination methods. Nobody seemed to be afraid of airborne contamination inside a sealed structure. But even if I suspend reality and try to get into the thrill of the movie, there they are, plain old 1950's concept zombies.

It's not quite the level quality we've become accustomed at the movies but not as bad as sci-fi Channel original movies, all the actors deliver a solid performance! The script is week never giving us any backstory on the characters. One of the biggest problems with this movie is they just did not have enough money to deliver a set that looked real, make us believe the characters are on Mars, costumes & props department they all did a phenomenal job on a micro budget unfortunately when you don't have money you just can't build a set or a costume that is believable, none of that would've mattered if the script was in gauging, suspenseful or make us want to care about the characters. It's worth seeing just wait 6 months or less and you'll be able see it for a satisfying $0.99.

This movie is not like Europa Report or like Moon or Sunshine, all great science fiction films done as small independent movies with a relatively small budget. This film has its flaws namely being the internal conflicts from the mission crew and the lack of any story. I felt like the viewer is thrown in to the middle of a situation without knowing anything that led up to it. I did not expect a lot of action but I felt like it was hard to find any likable character that you actually feel concern about. It reminded me of a twilight zone or outer limits episode and I found the dialogue to contain too much swearing coming from a group of scientists hired to perform tests on Mars. However it did keep my attention thru out the film so I gave it a relatively high rating. I hope to see more from this director in the future.

Despite the many negative reviews of this film, which certainly is no masterpiece, but makes for good viewing, "The Last Days on Mars" is worth a try for those who enjoy sci-fi cinema. Certainly, if they can bear pleasurably with "Red Planet" (2000), they can find "Last Days on Mars" to be at least as enjoyable. Yes, the alien creatures which the earthlings discover (after having found microbial and other lower life forms) are zombie-like Martians and, yes, they do turn their human victims into zombie-like critters when they die and then come back to life as zomboid anthropoids, also with terrific blood-lust, and with the ability to breathe the Martian atmosphere. However, there is much suspense and gripping action to all of this, the ending of it bleak and grim for the space crew. For more clues to the film's action, see the other reviews, especially on the Internet Movie Data Base and on Amazon-U.S.

I would suggest renting rather than buying this on DVD or on Blu-Ray, but, for my own part, anyway, I think that I shall be watching it again sometime in the future. In essence, "The Last Days on Mars" and "Red Planet" both are rather old-style (1950s-like) sci-fi, so far as their respective plots go, but the two movies have a modern look to them, the sets being anything but hokey. Mars itself looks rather like some reddish stretch of Utah's Painted Desert. These two films are not reversions, from the visual standpoint, to "Buck Rogers" and "Flash Gordon" style films of the mid-20th century (which, anyway, will remain belovèd for the sake of their exuberant and boyishly handsome leading actor, Buster Crabbe, of cinematically blessèd memory).
