Mission To Mars Reviews

So-so sci-fi; may be too intense for some kids.

Nick's Flick Picks

Whatever's shoddy or limp about Mission to Mars, however conspicuous while the film unfolds, all becomes admirably pale as the full viewing experience recedes and the good stuff emerges in proud bas-relief.

Slant Magazine

Mission to Mars' redemptive coda opened the door for the subsequent film's continuing figurative and literal sanguinity.

Film Threat

Typically, while a good screenplay only requires a single author, this unimaginative, derivative dreck required at least four, even with the massive cribbing from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Sight and Sound

There's some throwaway fancy camerawork at the beginning and a repeat of his shock-shot trick from Raising Cain, but otherwise De Palma's own ride appears to be largely on autopilot.

The too-many-cooks rule applies to this script, which borrows wantonly from sci-fi classics of the past.

If Brian DePalma's Mission to Mars were a book, it would have a yellow cover and the title '2001 for Dummies.'

Boxoffice Magazine

It's the waste of the impressive ensemble cast on cheap, pedestrian dialogue and a tabloid-style hypothesis of Martian civilization that makes this Mission impossible to watch.

Despite a few breathtaking snapshots en route, it can't quite figure out the aesthetic itinerary -- where it's heading and why.

Bears the distinct imprint of helmer De Palma, still one of the best visualists to work in the action/adventure genre.

The film just doesn't offer anything new to the genre, so why bother making it?

Silly, turgid and devoid of even the hints of original thinking, Mission to Mars is a testament to shameless creative theft.

It may not make you ponder the meaning of Man's existence, but you should still be entertained.

A film about space exploration that really knocks your eyes out.

David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor

It's hardly an original movie ... But its cinematography is literally dizzying at times, proving that De Palma can still put on a good show even when his material isn't the freshest he might have found.
