From the director of Mission: Impossible comes the thrilling, eye-popping science-fiction adventure Mission To Mars - starring Gary Sinise ('Snake Eyes') and Tim Robbins.

The year is 2020, and the first manned mission to Mars, commanded by Luke Graham (Don Cheadle), lands safely on the red planet. But the Martian landscape harbors a bizarre and shocking secret that leads to a mysterious disaster so catastrophic, it decimates the crew.

Haunted by a cryptic last message from Graham, NASA launches the Mars Recovery Mission to investigate and bring back survivors - if there are any. Confronted with nearly insurmountable dangers, but propelled by deep friendship, the team finally lands on Mars and makes a discovery so amazing, it takes your breath away.

'Mission To Mars' is an action-packed rocket ride that will enthrall you with its stunning special effects and keep you on the edge of your seat.

i dont know why this was slated on its release,its a cracking film full of excitement and wonder.although brian de palma is not known for this type of film,i thought he did a great job.the special effects are stunning especially the spacewalk sequence and on the martian surface.many people,myself included believe earth was seeded from space which is why space travel fascinates us.its a chance to go back to where we came from.these themes are explored here.

An emotional and very well casted film that explores the possibilities of life on Mars. Very much along the same lines as 'Contact' but without the refined storyline and scripting.

When released the critics slated this film, which is unfair in many respects as it is a good film but just lacks refinement and makes you wonder if there is a directors cut version out there that might add depth. 7/10

Mission To Mars (2000) is a sci-fi thriller set in space. The cast includes Gary Sinise, Tim Robbins, Connie Nielsen, Jerry O'Connell and Don Cheadle.

The plot revolves around the catastrophic first manned mission to Mars and the rescue mission launched to investigate the tragedy and bring back any survivors.

There's a talented cast involved in this movie but nearly all the actors struggle with the clunky dialogue and weak characters. Sinise has a difficult time in the leading role, he's a great actor but lacks the star quality for a hero role. O'Connell is given some really dumb dialogue and Cheadle is wasted in a supporting role. Tim Robbins fares better but cannot save the movie.

Director Brian De Palma (The Untouchables) has had great success working in the crime thriller genre. Mission To Mars should have been his sci-fi classic but instead it's a rather bland movie. De Palma manages to craft a few moments of his usual visual flair but fails to deliver any real tension.

Mission To Mars has a talented cast and a legendary director so it's a real shame that a better movie wasn't produced. The special effects are good and there are entertaining moments (a pretty good score by Ennio Morricone for one) but ultimately this has to be classified as a disappointment.

Wow, what an absolutely awful film! It's too long for starters... a lot of 90 second scenes have been stretched out to 3 minutes for no reason. After watching the crew dance for a while, I got the impression that the director was just trying to pad the film out, because he spent way too long on the rescue ship's voyage to Mars instead of on Mars itself.

The crew were a rabble.. no way would they be allowed to fly model airplanes, let alone the second Mars spaceship. One of the crew didn't even have a clue what he was doing and used street vocabulary instead of "astronaut-speak" . Huh? Also, not a buzz-cut in sight... none of these people were ex-airforce, which is where astronauts are recruited from. Very unrealistic. And as for the conga dance while they floated along in tandem during a spacewalk after their craft is disabled... well... I was laughing my head off.

Also.. the alien on Mars.... it showed the earthlings that it's civilization was so advanced, but why didn't they just inhabit Earth after Mars was hit by an asteroid? They just flew off to another star system. Laughable.

Overall, the cast were shocking, the script was laughable and the direction in general was a disgrace. Brian de Palma directed this? Outrageous!
