5.0 out of 5 stars Mars has a secret and it's about to be revealed 8 July 2006
By Kali
Format:DVD
Stranded in my opinion is an intelligent thought provoking film that does not go for the glitz and glam that is the rot of Hollywood, for starters it's a Spanish film and also it didn't have a mega budget that a Hollywood film would have.

The plot is quite simple, a space shuttle crash lands on Mars, out of the six crew members, the Captain is killed on impact, and the other five are forced to evaluate their survival chances which even with rationing and conserving air and heat, there is little chance of them being alive if and when a rescue from earth eventually arrives.

The only chance any of them have if three of the five survivors leave the crashed ship, giving the remaining two a chance to survive until rescue arrives.

The three doomed crew members make their way to a valley of fog which has intrigued them since they have arrived, what lies under it, why is there a strong magnetic field all around it in patches, and it is under this fog filled valley that Mars amazing secret is revealed.

Vincent Gallo is great as the dour doom laden Luca who along with Maria de Medeiros who played Brue Willis' French girlfriend in Pulp Fiction get to stay in the crashed spaceship based on him being the ship's engineer and she being the ship's Doctor, whilst Joaquim de Almeida (Fidel), Daniel Aser (Sagan) and María Lidón (Susana) make their way to the valley of fog where they think they will die.

By far the best character in this film is María Lidón who is both fragile and strong as she walks a way to what she thinks will be her doom with her two companions, and the little known Aser was excellent as the optimistic Sagan whilst de Almeida was very believable as the cynical but good hearted Fidel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doom and gloom and implausibility 4 Sep 2011
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Note to NASA or whichever group finally gets around to that long-overdue manned Mars mission: make sure you send an engineer who isn't a complete jerk who reacts to any problem by proclaiming that everyone is doomed to die a most horrible death. I would go so far as to recommend anyone looking like Rasputin be automatically disqualified from consideration. You might also want to make someone with some strong leadership ability second in command in case the landing vehicle crash lands and the captain (particularly if he's well past his prime) is killed on impact. I hate to say it, but you can tell this isn't an American-made movie because Americans would have figured out some way to survive against impossible odds - or at least died trying their utmost until the very end. The crew of the spaceship Aries just ignore the one guy trying to come up with ideas and jump on Dr. Doom's bandwagon.

In the golden age of science fiction, many a good film was made about Mars. Over the last decade or so, though - for reasons I certainly can't explain - you can pretty much count on any Mars-related movie being mind-numbingly boring and greatly disappointing. Stranded doesn't really fit any well-worn mold, but I would be lying if I said it was exciting or seemed to have any real purpose behind it. This Spanish film features a multi-national crew preparing to land the first human beings on the Red Planet. Alas, something goes wrong during the descent and the vehicle crashes way off target on the Martian surface. Luckily, there's a doctor onboard to verify that the obviously dead captain is in fact dead, leaving the six remaining crew members free to begin debating their options.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating 18 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
I found this film to be better than Marooned but not as good as Apollo 13. With Apollo 13 I was not bothered about the beginning but more interested with the problem that occurs in space. So the first half I'd skip through until we get to the serious life-threatening stuff.
Now with Stranded we get the life-threatening stuff straight away without the medical, without families included, without the outside world helping them; the characters' have to work to survive alone. This film doesn't mess around but gets straight to the point. There's no action involved; just serious talk about what's at stake. You feel their fear. All in all there's more tension in Apollo 13 that's why this one I've given 4 stars instead of 5; because Apollo 13 deserves the 5. Marooned I found tedious and boring. I lost interest with it despite the good ratings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sort of a mars-soupial 21 Aug 2011
By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Yep" Stranded" (2001) is a standard formula crash on mars. They make no attempt to slowly reveal the plot. It is an in-your-face yep someone's gotta go who gets to pick and where do they go story. But you knew this before you bought this movie.

Even though this film is foreign and some of the acting and reading is stilted we're still fascinated with the interaction of the characters and how they are going to get from point A to point Z. The film does not have to be original or professional; all it has to do is hold our attention and show us their version of the well-known story.

The two points that stand out to me are first how Luca Baglioni (Vincent Gallo) wants to spend his dying moments with Jenny Johnson (Maria de Medeiros.) We could've made book on that answer. The second which might've been a little drawn out but I enjoyed it anyway was the reference to Barsoom and Barsoom's characters; I have to expected John Carter pop out from behind the rocks.
