Can't forget systems engineer-Robbie Gallagher who also gets to control AIMEE-Autonomous Mapping Exploration and Evasion robot. I will say here that these last two are my favorite characters. The relationship between Gallagher and AIMEE is sweet, at first. The special effects of her movements and what she sees is done very well. It heightens the intensity of how will these people survive on a planet that may or may not be liveable. Plus the cinematography how they keep the filter on the lenses so you feel like you are really with them on Mars.
It puts you in a dilemma what would you do if you had too many people for the supplies on hand? What moral upbringing will help you make your decision? Would you make the same judgment calls they did?
How would you handle a situation that seems unsurvivable? Give up or persevere through?
It wasn't a bad movie by any stretch, but there was quite a bit of eye-rolling dialog and more than a few face palms. And of /course/ the super expensive, sophisticated, and rather creepy robot was damaged just perfectly enough to be fully operational AND murderous. I would've preferred that the robot either not be in there at all, OR that the malfunction never happened, and AMEE ended up being what took all the important science stuff back to the ship at the end (effectively removing the 5-minute romance between the Captain and Engineer, which wasn't terrible but felt more like a sticker slapped on after packaging than anything else.)
TL;DR - Not bad, worth the price of a rental, and maybe a little MST3K if you and yours are science nerds.
Carrie-Ann Moss, the only woman, does well, as does Val Kilmer. The others, to varying degrees, make their roles count. The Director keeps the show moving along and makes almost every moment count. The technical stuff, while not whiz-bang, suit the needs of the drama and create the necessary concern for the survival of the crew and success of the mission.
Suitable for all ages, this is an excellent buy at current Amazon prices.
