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.

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

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

Though unapologetically old-fashioned and corny, Mission still has its share of nail-biter moments.

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.

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.
