Product Description

Product Description

From Disney and Academy Award(R) winner Robert Zemeckis (Best Director, FORREST GUMP, 1994), comes the craziest adventure this side of the galaxy -- MARS NEEDS MOMS. Take out the trash, eat your broccoli -- who needs moms, anyway? Nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she's nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. In a race against time and oxygen, his quest to save her knows no bounds. And with some unexpected help, Milo just might find his way back to her -- in more ways than one. Complete with intergalactic bonus features, it's a thrilling journey that's pure, out-of-this-world crazy fun.

Mars Needs Moms is a comic animated adventure about moms, Martians, and mutiny. Martian hatchlings are springing up out of the ground up on Mars, and there's a desperate need for a good mom to raise the babies. Mars matriarch "The Supervisor" (Mindy Sterling) sets her sights on Milo's mom (Joan Cusack) because she's doing such a good job raising Milo (Seth Green) down on Earth, and she quickly abducts her. As luck would have it, Milo's just said something to his mother that he's come to regret, goes into her room to apologize right as she's being abducted, and winds up getting caught in the spaceship that's transporting her to Mars. On Mars, Milo meets a strangely childlike human named Gribble (Dan Fogler), and the two quickly become friends and set out on a bumbling mission to rescue Milo's mom. Along the way, they get a little help from Martian Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), who sees things a little differently than other Martians, thanks to her exposure to some Earth television from the flower-power era. What ensues is a dangerous and exciting adventure that yields a surprising revelation about the role and value of mothers. Mars Needs Moms utilizes the same digital performance-capture technology animation as Polar Express, and it is a visually stunning film. The pace is exciting; the characters are well developed, captivating, and often quirky; and the story speaks to kids and adults alike. Mars Needs Moms earns a PG rating because of sci-fi action and peril, and it's probably a bit too intense for kids under 7, as well as older children who are especially sensitive. --Tami Horiuchi

Mars needs Moms is another one of those rare CGI movies that are done completely with motion capture. In this respect it's very similar to Polar Express. For example, there's a scene near the beginning of the movie with his cat that you would swear that it is a real cat. The graphics are that good! The visuals on Mars are equally fantastic.

This is backed up by an English DTS-HD 7.1 soundtrack that's as good as anything you'll hear in any live action movie. Although being from a couple of years ago, unfortunately it has that same Disney DTS audio bug as Secret of the Wings and John Carter that all Disney movies had around that time. That causes the DTS (only) audio track to develop an echo every ten to fifteen minutes when decoded through certain AV receivers like my Denon. (You have to pause momentarily to get back a normal DTS soundtrack when you hear it!) But it's not a problem with most set-ups.

As for the movie, it bombed at the box office and now that I've seen it I can see why. Despite the outstanding visuals and equally good audio; the plot is really, really corny and cliché! Now there's nothing inherently wrong with a corny storyline of youthful alienation provided it's balanced out with good comedy and equally good action. But Mars needs Moms has two major flaws.

Firstly there's virtually no comedy to balance out the teen angst. Instead they've taken what should have been a great looking kids action comedy movie and instead have tried to turn it into a sci-fi soap opera! So when the angst kicks in, it simply stops the action cold. And without humour to balance it out, it just gets too depressing at those points

The other problem is the plot, there really isn't one!

A slightly silly plot. Extraordinary 3D realization! Worth getting the Blu Ray for the perfect animation, color and movement. One of the great 3D animation movies, along with Planet 51, Escape from Planet Earth, Wall-E, Ratatouille, Monsters vs Aliens, The Incredibles, Megamind, etc.

Love the movie. Perfect for adults and kids. The length of the movie is perfect for toddles. I have a 3 year old who loves it.
