Better than you remember.

What could have been regarded as a good monster flick turned into a biblical and preachy flick.

Zero gravity.

Red Planet's lack of original ideas locks it into a decaying orbit.

Even when the astronauts are running out of oxygen, they still insist on espousing their theories about life, science and God. Had the movie any sexual or racial tension, it could pass itself off as "The Real World: Mars."

The film’s dearth of imagination is nowhere more evident than in the flat, tepid dialogue.

As B films go, Red Planet has its heart in the right place.

In a choice of lesser evils, you could do a whole lot worse... While it never climbs very high, it survives because we know how much further it could fall.

Yawn. Another boring trip to Mars.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

The only fun in Red Planet is trying to spot the reflections of the camera and crew in the smoothly-polished faceplates of the astronauts.

Look for Red Planet to crash as resoundingly at the box office as its heroes do on Mars.

Nobody who hasn't spent time in an asylum could have believed that this film was ever going to amount to anything.

Red Planet convincingly demonstrates that the shadow side of science is scary - very scary indeed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It does not have the right stuff. Indeed, it is pretty silly stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

No solamente es una mala película, sino un verdadero desperdicio de tiempo y dinero que no se le recomienda a nadie en su sano juicio
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

...a little more convincing and plausible than its predecessor, even if it is not enough reason to actually recommend the follow-up either.

What human speech manages to break through the tedious, impenetrable jargon is so compressed and weighted with exposition that it feels more like notes for an outline than actual conversation.

As a human interest drama, Red Planet is more thin than Mars' atmosphere.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The story's strong point isn't psychological depth or complex relationships, but brainy scientists trying to think their way out of a box that grows smaller every minute.

Despite the persuasive scenery, director Antony Hoffman can't figure out a way to build scenes, or momentum, or much of anything.
