A number of previous reviewers were disappointed by Red Planet. I wasn't. Of course, for die-hard SF fans (which I am not), fond of faster-than-light travel, intergalactic laser battles, indestructible monsters etc. the movie looks a bit pedestrian.

Red Planet is more of an adventure flick than your typical SF blockbuster. I found the plot quite believable, the technology fairly realistic (including "smart" extra-vehicular suits and a lander inspired by both the Apollo Lunar Module and the more recent unmanned probes) and the acting performances very decent. Val Kilmer's acting is quite subdued (you may at first wonder if he really is the main character), and the whole cast fill their roles well. Special effects are excellent yet unobtrusive (the zero-G fire and the "landing" scenes are quite impressive), while the depiction of the Martian surface is visually stunning and very close to reality. That, in fact, may be why SF fans generally didn't like the movie: it must have been too... believable. Apart from some gadgets, most of the technology displayed in Red Planet is already with us (or just around the corner), so it doesn't look like the 32nd Century or so. Yes, the storyline might be predictable at times, but it is still a good B-series flick, with no great pretence to be anything else. I'd call it a B+ series movie, and a good way to spend 100 minutes.

There are many things to reccommend Red Planet. Obviously the film looks fantastic. Mars looks so real and the whole look of Red Planet is very slick. One of my favourite scenes Zero Gravity Fire has Carrie-Anne Moss battling a fire on board the space ship. The special effects are marvellous and the looks amazing as the fire is sucked out into outer space. Val Kilmer gives a good performance in the lead role as he battles against time, the elements and AMEE the malfunctioning multi purpose robot. Red Planet although far-fetched is an intelligent Sci-Fi film and it was good to see NASA's mars lander from 1997 make an appearance. Parts of this film seem to have been greatly inspired by Stanley Kubricks 2001. Most obvious is the case of the crews damaged robot Amee who when she hears that she is to be shut down tries to kill the crew. This seems quite similar to 2001's HAL. This isn't really a bad thing though as 2001 was probably the best sci-fi film ever, and whilst this Red Planet doesn't reach those heights it is still a damn fine film in its own right.

If you are looking for some exotic space creature like Sigourney Weaver, or even Jane Fonda. Then this is not the movie for you. The closest it comes to this is the obligatory shower scene. If you are looking for big ugly killer creatures or space pirates, again this movie is not for you.
What this movie does contain are the popular actors of this time. One popular actor included but overlooked in a lot of reviews is Benjamin Bratt ...Ted Santen, who shows up again in "Miss Congeniality" (2000)where he seems to have gotten a much higher rating.
The movie is formula with the standard mix of personalities. The Mission is like all the others. There is a compelling need to go to Mars. Naturally disaster strikes. Some sacrifice some good guys, maybe some bad guys, a few anticipated suppress, and AMEE knows the way to a man's hart.
The DVD has some outtakes that you may find enhances the film and then again the scenes may have been taken out for good reason. There is no running commentary. I am not going to transliterate the story. If you watch it for fun then you should not be disappointed.

Like the thematically similar 'Pitch Black', 'Red Planet' is a visually superb but poorly plotted sci-fi piece of hokum that will entertain but leave you with a feeling that this could have been significantly better if all concerned had tried harder or had been given more freedom. The look of the the film is outstanding, with CGI melding with live action and props/costumes to give a classy (but not stunning) picture of a state-of-the-art space mission in the mid-21st century. However, the plot is as typically lazy as the rest of the special FX popcorn fare of the last decade. Characters are thinly fleshed out and then casually disposed of at regular intervals to provide some sort of momentum (and filler!) towards Val Kilmer's big final show-down with the mission's psychotic service robot(!). There is much to like about this flick, however, as Carrie-Anne Moss shows the quality for this sort of thing she showed in 'The Matrix' and Kilmer makes a decent hero against a solid cast. Worth a place in the sci-fi fanboy's collection.

Earth is dying.

A new colony on Mars could be humanity's only hope. A team of American astronauts, each a specialist in a different field, is making the first manned expedition to the red planet and must struggle to overcome the differences in their personalities, backgrounds and ideologies for the overall good of the mission.

When their equipment suffers life-threatening damage and the crew must depend on one another for survival on the hostile surface of Mars, their doubts, fears and questions about God, man's destiny and the nature of the universe become defining elements in their fates....

Red Planet can be viewed in three different ways.

The story of a fight for humankind, with lots of beliefs being questioned and coping with ones self.

The other Mars movie where the robot goes mad during the final act and Kilmer drops the F-Bomb.

Or the film thats famous because Sizemore and Kilmer fell out big time and the hatred oozes through out the film.

But either way you watch the film, you cannot deny how mundane and boring the actual finished project is.

Many people compare it to 'Mission to Mars' but look closer and it's better to compare it to the other space movie released that year, 'Supernova'.

Both were devoid of story and/or characterisation, and both had an online 'ally' going nuts at the end.

Kilmer puts in his usual performance, and the rest of the cast look bamboozled as to why they are actually there.

2000 wasn't a good year for movies, save a couple, and this furthers my proof.
