It's enlightening to view Tim Burton's Mars Attacks! as his twisted satire of the blockbuster film Independence Day, which was released earlier the same year, although the movies were in production simultaneously. Burton's eye-popping, schlock tribute to 1950s UFO movies actually plays better on video than it did in theaters. The idea of invading aliens ray gunning the big-name movie stars in the cast is a cleverly subversive one, and the bulb-headed, funny-sounding animated Martians are pretty nifty, but it all seemed to be spread thin on the big screen. On video, however, the movie's kooky humor seems a bit more concentrated. The Earth actors (most of whom get zapped or kidnapped for alien science experiments) include Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rod Steiger, Michael J. Fox, Lukas Haas, Jim Brown, Tom Jones, and Pam Grier. The digital video disc features an isolated track for Danny Elfman's score, as well as a few other clever and nasty little Martian surprises. --Jim Emerson

5.0 out of 5 stars Mars o'hacks April 15 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A little disjointed, the cast has a difficult script to enact, but this is a pretty good send up of 50's schmaltz.
Just wish the beautiful Pam Grier had been used more, and Natalie Portman is always worth watching at work.
Big cast, big budget, be ready to laugh if you think it's funny when someone sits on gum.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a comedy. July 4 2004
Format:DVD
Neglected masterpiece, misunderstood and unappreciated by far too many. It is not perfect, perhaps could benefit from some extra production time, but the film's incredible inventiveness, brilliantly wacky humor and fantastic sets, more than compensate for its shortcomings. Great, brutal fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined to be a CLASSIC! July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
When I first heard that Tim Burton was going to turn the Mars Attacks trading cards into a movie I couldn't imagine how he could adapt them for the big screen for under 100 million, but when I saw it I said to myself, "FINALLY! Some has found a good use for CGI!" This very funny sci-fi comedy is destined to become a classic and is one of the most imaginatively produced films in ages. Featuring tons of great cameos by stars - particularly Jack Nicholson, who plays a dual role and Tom Jones - Mars Attacks also boasts a great score, lots of wild, funny action and, yes.... LOTS OF GREAT DEATH SCENES! Yes, folks, it is DAMN FUNNY when people get killed; heck, SLAUGHTERED, in this film! Yep, death CAN be funny, especially when it happens to movie stars who are all so obviously movie stars in a fantasy movie. I only wish they could have killed a "better" class of movie ACKters, the ones you WANT to see die, like Will Smith, Bruce Willis, Steven Segal, Arn-OLD, Julia Roberts, any model turned actress and virtually EVERY movie star who came to prominence from the time this film was released until NOW (and beyond, it seems). With today's atmosphere, where the world over, especially here in the U.S., people are so insanely and blindly freaful of a coming apocalypse, it's always good to bring it all out on screen, particularly when it's done in such an over-the-top fashion as this. I wouldn't be surprised to see this film become a big hit it it were re-released to theatres today (HEY, ANYONE OUT THERE REMEMBER ANOTHER LITTLE CLASSIC BY THE NAME OF DR. STRANGELOVE, WHICH CAME OUT DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE COLD WAR AND IN WHICH THE ENTIRE EARH WAS DEVASTATED IN THE END????!!!!) Sheesh, some "people"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really funny movie! June 24 2004
Format:DVD
This movie is so incredibly funny. Starring Jack Nicholson, Gleen Close and Pierce Brosnan, "Mars Attacks" is a great homage to the sci-fi movies of the 1950s and 1960s and is almost like a comedic version of the movie independence Day but with a spoof of it. In this case a band of Martians arrive on Earth but unleash mayhem and are trying to annihilate humanity and humanity must unite to save themselves from the vicious Martians. This movie is just incredibly funny and TIm Burton once again delivers another classic to his catelog. Go and buy this movie today! It's so funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars What If? Sept. 24 2010
By J. Bird
Format:Blu-ray
What if Edward D. Wood Jr. had a higher budget, good digital effects, access to quality studios, and great actors at his disposal? Director Tim Burton has answered that question for us in 'Mars Attacks.' You may not understand the reasoning behind this movie but you do not have to, Tim Burton understood it perfectly. Mars Attacks makes no sense in itself and the script, narrative, and dialogue are just as non-sensical as the idea of Martians that attack for absolutely no reason. Why is this so? It is obvious, this movie is a throwback to a genre that exists no more and perhaps that is our loss as a moviegoers; when cheap sci-fi and B-movies ruled the cinemas and drive-ins. Hitchcock of course set all this straight with 'Psycho' by proving that a great horror film (B-movie if you will) could be made with a low budget. But Ed Wood was no Hitchcock and Tim Burton was not paying homage to Hitch.

To understand Mars Attacks you must understand Tim Burton's love for Ed Wood as a film-maker. It appears that Tim Burton made this movie in honour of Ed Wood; alongside the bio-pic of the same name.

Have you never seen 'Plan 9 From Outer Space?' If not, watch that movie then watch this one in sequence; You will understand the answer and the question............ what if?

2.0 out of 5 stars doesn't stand up to repeated viewing Aug. 22 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
to me, a true test of a good movie is one that stands up to repeated
viewing.this isn't one of those movies.the first time i watched it,i
liked.by the second viewing,most of the jokes grow tired and old
quickly.as a matter of fact,i was bored most of the time.the movie is a
sort of spoof of the 1950's alien invasion films.there is one thing i
really liked about "Mars Attacks".that is-- the weapons the aliens
have.i won't say what they resemble,but they do look humorous.upon
first viewing,you may laugh yourself silly,but i'm betting the novelty
will wear off quickly.not the worst movie of the genre,certainly,but
nearer the bottom than the top.for me,"Mars Attacks" gets a 2/5

3.0 out of 5 stars mars attacks-an all star cast July 15 2004
By abe
Format:VHS Tape
well theres not much of a story.mars attacks.stars are many.jack nicholson is the president.christina applegate is a rednecks ol lady.is that wyona ryder?maybe not.danny devito plays a gambler.wayne newton as well wayne newton.the kids can watch it,but it could freak out the real little ones.tim burton directs this one so it is great as usual.it is one of his best films.there are many creative ideas and imagination galore all throughout this one.the aliens are abselutely hysterical.christina applegate is in it but only for a second.then theres this chick who cheats on michael j fox with pierce brosnan.is this guy always stealing someones woman on his movies?anyway,shes tacky.the hippie chick in it is hot but very deeply emotionaly disturbed.this is a really funny movie and everyone but jack nicholsons personal best.the special effects are not fantastic but the ideas that go into them are very creative.
