Mission to Mars Movie Description

In Mission to Mars movie, Before watching Mission to Mars Film for the first time that night, I knew that this Mission to Mars movie got mediocre reviews and after watching it, I can't understand why. 

Like 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Mission to Mars Full Movie gives us a sense of wonder, hope and even awe. 

The last half an hour of the Mission to Mars movie really gives us these feelings. The first half of the movie might be a bit boring or should I say intellectual, but I found it interesting to watch. 

The visuals are really good and especially on Mars and that makes the Mission to Mars film beautiful to watch.

Brian De Palma's film is about how the first manned Mission to Mars Movie goes terribly wrong due to a catastrophic and somewhat mysterious incident. 

A rescue team travels to Mars to see if anyone survives and they discover something that could fascinate them forever.

There is a very good cast in this Mission to Mars movie and it looks like they were having a good time. I don't watch much of Gary Sinise anymore, but he does a fine job as Jim. Don Cheadle is awesome as always. 

I can't complain about Tim Robbins because he usually does a good job at anything. Overall, everyone's chemistry is good here.

Overall, this is a decent, awe-inspiring sci-fi movie. It might not be perfect due to some incoherent dialogues and slow pace at times, but it is much better than what people give it credit for. 

It's also a Mission to Mars movie that gives a possible perspective on where we Earthlings came from. I can't believe people say Morricone's score is bad, but it's far from bad. It's a haunting, stylish score that will stay with you just like the Mission to Mars movie.

Visually, "Mission to Mars Film" is stunning. No one tells a story with illustrations better than De Palma. The beautiful design and photography kept me hooked to every frame. 

On the recommendation of a friend, I watched the Mission to Mars movie in widescreen on DVD using a high resolution monitor. 

The visuals are so important that I can't imagine watching the Pick & Scan version on a traditional TV set. A lot will be lost this way.

The opening scene in the Mission to Mars movie, where one of the astronauts is blown up to Mars, made me levitate. 

Also, I loved Tim Robbins and Connie Nielsen's Weightless Dance in the Spaceship on the Way to Mars. The visual was also well done, with the stark white surroundings the astronauts encountered in "faceship" (to coin a phrase).

I thought the performances were equally excellent. That fact and the wonderful visuals overpower the sometimes excruciatingly bad dialogue so that it really doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the Mission to Mars film. 

That being said, though, I liked the exchange where it is observed by one character that only a three percent difference between the genetic makeup of men and apes "gave us Einstein, Mozart" and another character adds, "Jack the Ripper." "

Some reviewers complained about the Mission to Mars film's similarity to "2001", but I think that's what De Palma had in mind. 

"Mission to Mars Movie" pays homage to every sci-fi cartoon and movie ever made, from Buck Rogers to "Close Encounters," and does it well. Anyway, De Palma proved to me yet again that he really does march to his drummer. 

I was thoroughly entertained and highly recommend Mission to Mars Full Movie -- but only if you watch it in widescreen on DVD, or even better, in a theater. Eight out of ten.

After watching it a second time, I can say I'm still not sure what to make of this Mission to Mars movie. Many will see it as a remake of 2001. 

And yes, the Mission to Mars movie is almost literary in terms of the Kubrick masterpiece. The two biggest problems are lack of originality and thoughtfulness. 

You can see from my rating that I didn't despise this Mission to Mars movie. It's nice to look at, and the performances are all good. However, I'm not sure I can recommend it.

I'm a science-fiction fan and a scientist, so I was initially mystified by the notion of a big-name dramatic film-maker doing a science fiction epic that was, at least initially, the epitome of hardcore science-fiction. 

appeared as By hardcore sci-fi, I mean fiction based on scientific reality, not fantasy with a tiny bit of science thrown in for embellishment. An example, using Mars as a vehicle, is Ben Bova's novel "Mars" - which only occasionally focuses on the very edge of possibility, crossing the boundaries of scientific possibility. 

Film has rarely achieved this - some interesting exceptions being Alien (the original), Outland and Silent Running. The hardcore sci-fi, which, I argue, this Mission to Mars movie could and should have been, is mindful of that boundary. 

And 3/4 of the way through Mission to Mars Movie, it's still a hardcore sci-fi movie. Then suddenly it's something else. I leave something else for you to discover, and focus on what the director and screenwriters were trying to do here.

What we don't really have here is a single plot, but a melange of plots strung together into a long, mysterious and grand story line. 

The Mission to Mars film begins with some footage that may have been lost on Apollo 13 - providing a bit of character development and letting us know that we're about to witness the first manned space flight to Mars. 

That flight ends very quickly, as literally everything goes wrong. And as the rescue operation begins, the question then becomes, why is everything going wrong? Up to the point where the rescue mission enters Mars orbit, this central question is developed steadily and efficiently, but then, in my opinion, things start to go wrong with the film itself.

There are bigger problems with what could have been the best aspects of this Mission to Mars movie. The spaceships are remarkably flimsy and poorly designed, but they look great! The safety protocols for the mission, which we hear a lot about, are either not followed or are incredibly naive. 

The protagonists aren't particularly clever about heroism, and at times forget what the real possibilities are for mobility in space (why not use the wire three times - twice for Woody and once for when the fuel runs out). 

To get back to the latter, Terry?) The person writing the security protocol doesn't appear to be particularly concerned with security, or even the protocol itself. 

The evolutionary biologist on the crew is surprisingly clueless about the Paleozoic period of Earth's history and the evolution of species. I could go.

The Mission to Mars movie is roughly like 2001 A Space Odyssey, The Abyss, Star Gate, Event Horizon, The Fifth Element, Contact and a few dozen other somewhat amusing but not particularly believable space/sci-fi adventures, but when it resembles , and fact in that it pays respect to these films (especially the 2001s), it never quite entertains.

Why? Because these films do not pretend to be based on scientific ideas, but on aesthetics and humanism. 

While most of these movies invite interpretation, Mission to Mars Full Movie simply repeats ideas from previous movies and doesn't even bother to put them in an interesting new light. Mission to Mars Movie is something that has been done many times before, in more interesting, entertaining and thought-provoking ways.

Technical prowess, which is something this Mission to Mars film flaunts, is no substitute for a compelling story and interesting individual characters. 

Unfortunately, in terms of technology too, the Mission to Mars film has some flaws. Some will disagree, but I found the soundtrack disturbing, and the pace of the film very uneven, to say the least. 

And the characters' lives are so intertwined in the few sequences of character development that only Sinise's, Robbins' and Bennings' characters develop rudimentary personalities.

Despite his reputation, I cannot hold Brian De Palma to standards that set him apart from other filmmakers, and I cannot condemn his films for creating a special vocabulary or a sophisticated argument to allow interpretation-arching. Themes that only he and his few fans understand. 

There's a fine line between flattering imitation and shameless imitation, so I don't want to delve into an additional meta-film discussion of this film's relation to 2001. I don't think this Mission to Mars movie deserves such a sophisticated analysis.
