From the get-go, Last Days on Mars looks like a film which the parties involved put about half their effort and care into.

Once danger presents itself and the screaming starts, it all becomes a basic space horror film that plucks tropes from the peg and rarely does anything interesting with them.

Our band of estimable actors have to contend with a storm of B-movie dialogue and the remorseless hammer blows of a stock horror plot line.

Consistently solid acting, smart direction and striking imagery cannot overcome a hackneyed storyline that cobbles together stale ideas and scenarios to a fittingly alienating effect.

You've never seen the red planet looking quite as humdrum as the one in The Last Days on Mars.

This is an intelligent and engaging sci-fi thriller that's well worth checking out. Also, did we mention the space zombies?

Manages to break free from its low-budget limitations but is hamstrung by its own love of the genre.

A sci-fi horror dimmer than the dark side of the moon.

Alas, the film quickly loses its offbeat charm and devolves into a routine monster movie.

movies with "Mars" in the title tend to suck

... fairly elemental sci-fier from UK that, during its creepier moments, will remind genre buffs of Hammer's top-drawer Quatermass series.

Appealing as that might sound to the walking-dead obsessed, this modest, low-budget sci-fi thriller is fatally lacking in entertainment value.

Olivia Williams further enforces the theory, as demonstrated in 'The Ghost Writer' and 'Hyde Park On Hudson,' that there's no one right now more electric at playing royally pissed-off.
