Summary My God its full of cliches with apologies to the writers of 2010 A good cast some impressive special effects and an experienced astronaut providing technical advice What could have gone wrong Lets start with the script It combines every possible sci-fi cliche look for these movies as they appear in M2M 2001 and 2010 in a big way Dune The Abyss Apollo 13 Close Encounters of the Third Kind to name only a few in a melodramatic hokey script Granted theres a really good cast hiding in this movie somewhere but with the script theyre given they didnt stand a chance If by some chance you can overcome the dialogue and the contrived overdone attempts at drama and suspense youre still faced with the background music Constantly It never stops It would be one thing if it were a traditional John Williams score but this sounds like it was composed when someone threw their cat on the keyboard and let it run free Remember the score to the original Terminator Mozart compared to this The upside the special effects were not too bad The technology ships Mars hab portrayed was impressive I saw the movie with a sneak preview audience of a lot of NASA and aerospace people and everyone agreed The shots of the Mars landscape and some of the storms you see them in the previews are pretty cool but nothing we havent seen before On the other hand I wont go into the CGI aliens--that would be too much of a spoiler--but lets just say that Marvin the Martian would have done just as well Oh and I didnt realize that Mars would look so much like Utah But all in all eye candy is only eye candy Mission to Mars tried to be many things on many levels--actionadventure quasi-romance hard sci-fi--and failed at all of them Save your 8 and go rent 2001 instead Gary
