The Last Days On Mars Reviews

December 19, 2013
Alas, the film quickly loses its offbeat charm and devolves into a routine monster movie.
December 13, 2013
Appealing as that might sound to the walking-dead obsessed, this modest, low-budget sci-fi thriller is fatally lacking in entertainment value.

In the ways that "The Last Days on Mars" is like a horror movies, it's typical, and in the ways it's different, it's mostly flat.

"The Last Days on Mars" seems like it could deliver ... thought-provoking goods - at least until the plot devolves into Zombies in Outer Space.

[A] low-budget, highly predictable, but well-acted Red Planet thriller ...

December 8, 2013
The acting is convincing across the board, especially Schrieber's, despite being saddled with such dialogue inanities as saying "you're gonna be all right" to a crewmate who is zombifying before his very eyes.

Fails to live up to the awesomeness of its own campy premise.

Although this film presents an interesting cast, they never feel like a crew.

The Last Days on Mars ultimately confirms what science has already spent billions of dollars establishing: There's just no life here.

December 6, 2013
It really isn't even a bad movie, or a bad movie of its sort. It's just not good enough to really distinguish itself.

December 5, 2013
Lean, muscular and on the money, The Last Days on Mars takes a familiar story and tells it so tautly that we are pleased to be on board.
December 5, 2013
Once it turns into a horror movie, "The Last Days on Mars" loses its originality and becomes the usual us-against-them battle between the dead and the undead.
December 5, 2013
Had The Last Days on Mars had the sort of artistic ambitions that matched the level of its cast, or if it had fully committed to being a fun, trashy, sci-fi monster movie, it'd be a more interesting watch.
December 5, 2013
Ruairi Robinson's derivative thriller renders even alien zombification as airless as a vacuum-sealed space capsule.

December 5, 2013
Robinson's go-to style for action sequences is a frenetic whirlwind of quick cuts and random angles that makes Michael Bay look like Michael Powell.

Here's hoping Robinson adds a little more extra to the terrestrial next time around.

The first half plays out by the numbers, with undead astronauts popping open the fragile bubble protecting the crew, but there's some grandeur to the second ...
December 2, 2013
A murkily derivative sci-fi-horror entry that basically amounts to Red Planet of the Dead.
August 29, 2013
I had to wonder, could I be watching the next remarkably brainy piece of sci-fi, this year's Moon? But then the first space zombie gutted a concerned colleague with a power drill, and in that moment, I knew exactly what I was in for.
May 31, 2013
A study of just how to screw up what ought to be an awesome movie.

Far more sober than that premise suggests, the unapologetically derivative sci-fi outing doesn't have the scripting muscle to deliver on its early promise. But the solid cast keeps it reasonably gripping nonetheless.
