Like some lousy sci-fi I'd watched before 2000.

Not bad. Just not really good either.

Pros: Great story and adaptation to the video games
Cons: No cons at this time.
?: When is Syfy ( Universal ) is going to make the show anytime soon ?

Encore une mauvaise adaptation de jeu vidéo , mauvais acting mais pour un Syfy movie ca reste quand même pas trops mauvais

A B graded sci fi fantasy flick that is based on the video game and the story although has a good plot it really feels flat as you do not feel for the story or the people in it. I'd say stick to the game if your fan of the series I've never played the game but i can guess that the game is better than this film adaptation.
The special effects in this flick seems like the 1970s star wars films.
Do yourself a favour and give this flick the flick.
The story line is basically about a family trying to be reunited also the whole movie is based on Mars.

It was long and dreadful, once again, a bad video game adaptation. Syfy did it's best with it's budget but the film looked cheap and lack of actions. The plot was no the most original and the acting from Danielle Nicolet could be summarised as reading lines. Seemed more like a pilot episode of a TV series than a film.

Not too bad, but not too good either. Mildly interesting, but gets more formulaic as it goes on.

The story is little bit long, but good. The special FX is below average. Over all I like this movie.

Fiel á obra que tem por base mas com efeitos especiais pré-historicos e actuaçoes sofriveis fazem deste filme para televisão uma tortura de se ver

3 stars in the context - it is a syfy tv movie, not a *real* movie. quite OK for a tv movie though.

The SyFy channel doesn't always air the greatest films. Usually they air glorified film school projects, shoestring monster flicks, and mockbuster snooze-fests. They they do put together a decently written movie every once in a while. Red Faction is one of these. I hope this kicks off a really good sci fi television series.

Une production inspiree d'un jeu video, produit par les petits genies de chez ScyFy et qui se deroule sur Mars (donc, obligation morale de produire quelques vaisseaux et panoramas rougeatres a l'ecran), voila qui sonnait comme une catastrophe annoncee. Contre toute attente, ce "Red faction" ne s'en tire vraiment pas mal du tout, compte tenu des multiples handicaps qu'il cumulait. Evidemment, "Red Faction" n'a rien d'un Space-Opera au budget pharaonique, on reste dans le domaine du telefilm ou de la serie a la "Battlestar galactica" mais avec ses CGI honorables (environnements martiens un peu miteux mais les vaisseaux tiennent la route), son scenario classique mais efficace et ses personnages relativement travailles - pour ce dernier point, c'est meme du jamais vu chez ScyFy - il constitue une bonne surprise a l'heure ou les adaptations de jeu video, meme les mieux pourvues en budget, ont encore tout a prouver. Le decoupage narratif et le rythme des dialogues laissent meme supposer qu'en fait de telefilm, "Red faction : origins" pourrait en fait constituer le Pilote d'une hypothetique serie a venir.

For SyFy Channel, it wasn't that bad....the special effects were adequate, the sets and much of the production team were Bulgarian, but this is SyFy channel and you expect the best in Bulgarian film making. The actors were OK, but that's rarely the problem with these movies. ..what's usually the problem with SyFy Channel movies is the script, and that was kind of OK. Not anl classic but you didn't cringe.....

One of the low-budget movies, well plotted but poor actions.
July 8, 2011
The best sci-fi movie that I've seen since Source Code. The sets looked amazing, even to my jaded eyes. Just as good was the writing, and the entire cast was performing like a well-tuned Ferrari. An absolute must-see for any sci-fi fan.
