Eh mars is a very barren planet, i guess they were trying to add some sense of realism to the actual planet??

The see the film for yourself and maybe you'll see what a crummy film this was.
PS. Leaving the caps lock on and writing in shit grammar only invalidates your argument

An early 20th century vision of Mars isn't what you expected? A time when many believed Mars looked a bit like the American West?

"The design of MARS is surprisingly bland". The design....of MARS. MARS?!? Ah...exactly what would you expect Mars to look like? Especially since the beginning of the movie sorta tells you why it looks the way it looks. Did you get to the movie late?

Really? How was Mars last time you visited? Was it exquisite like the Caribbean or something?

I not sure Ms. Puig realizes that Mars is a very bland planet and that the jest of the movie was that Mars was heading that way, due to the efforts of the villians. She would probably be surprised to find out that Mars is actually a ball of dust in very much the same way it is potrayed in the movie.

Dumb critic with worse reviews.

"..the design of Mars is surprisingly bland."

We know what Mars looks like know (2012) this is supposed to be taking place over a hundred years ago, give or take a hundred. So the goal is to show a dying planet that is soon to be dead. Dead stuff tends to be bland.

Claudia, you are a bit bland and bit more clueless.

You're surprised Mars was bland? >.< Have you seen the photos of the surface of Mars? OMG Mars was not as striking as the fictional Pandora. People actually pay people with that degree of ignorance?
