Customer Review

on 1 August 2011
If you want fantastic special effects, snappy dialogue and fast paced action then avoid the 'Martian Chronicles'...But if, like me, you like to be filled with a sense of mystical awe, curiousity and have your intellect stimulated, then this is for you. Although the acting is at times ropey and the pace is slow, this mini-series contains some truly magical moments- Never mind if the science is a bit off whack, it's the ideas that count in this classic Bradbury tale where many stories make the whole. I saw this way back in 1980 and was thoroughly entranced- I particularly like the fact that at the height of the Cold War these films pointed to an alternative to Mutually Assured Destruction, given to humanity by the beautiful and ethereal Martians, who either exist, or don't, are us, but also maybe themselves...The message still holds true, we only have one planet, and either we harmonise with It, or we perish...
