Despite audiences knowing the happy ending from the get-go, [director] Butler manages to inject considerable drama.

One of the most educational and entertaining large-format movies ever.

Not having a way to capture images of the machines at work means that too much of Butler's film ... is disappointingly made up of computer simulations.

Capably accomplishes its mission to Mars by blending solid science with sci-fi eye candy.

It's harder still not to root for anthropomorphized Spirit and Opportunity as time and again they perform like whirring, beeping little robots-that-could, far exceeding the expectations of the people who designed and built them.

Only a series of pics featuring a set of strange little nodes that look like blueberries planted in a pile of red rocks carry any kind of translatable otherworldly kick.
