Familiar stuff, but well done.,
This review is from: Last Days on Mars [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This entertaining Mars set thriller delivers a decent hour and a half's viewing. When scientists exploring Mars make a groundbreaking discovery they need all their resolve to overcome the perils their find brings with it. Liev Schreiber is perfect as the stoic leading man and the rest of the cast do a great job with characters that are familiar but surprisingly well written. The Mars landscape looks vast, the fx are good, the dust storms are particularly well rendered. The music really helped to rack up the tension and the frantic shooting style complimented the action scenes without being too jumbled and shakey. The sets are terrific and the story tips a wink to similar movies like Aliens, Red Planet and The Colony. I was really pleasantly surprised with this, even with the ambiguous ending.
