I am a SF junkie and will watch just about anything - even if I don't like it. Red Planet - With Carrie Moss, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore and Terrance Stamp - isn't in that category but it teeters at times.
The special effects are not bad.
The science IS bad, and inconsistant, but since this is a movie and not a documentary, so I suppose that's allowable.
I would have loved to see more Terrance Stamp.
The relationships between the crew are not well explained and take unexpected turns here and there. The flashback- oh yeah - this happened - scene to explain the Kilmer-Moss relationship irritated me. Why on earth (or Mars) not show it as it happened - then we might all understand the situation. At times, I was wondering "Why are they acting like this?"
Not bad - SF fans will still like it - keep expectations low.
Mike

If you've seen any of the following films, then don't waste your time with "Red Planet":
1. Armageddon
2. The Core
3. Apollo 13
4. Independence Day
5. Any "beat the clock & save the planet/city" sci-fi flick made since 1990 that I didn't bother watching.
Out of all of these, "Apollo 13" is the best, simply because it's a true story that was made with emotional honesty and a compelling narrative.
Here's everything you need to know about "Red Planet":
-the best actor (Terrence Stamp) the dies first
-Val Kilmer and Carrie-Ann Moss are in it
-plot of "Apollo 13" + wonky environmental pop-science + visuals from "2001" + Mars + a funky robot who goes all "HAL" = "Red Planet"
Plot synopsis: In an attempt to terraform Mars because Earth is so polluted, the "international community" has been seeding Mars with large algae mats to make its atmosphere more human-friendly. Something goes wrong, and a team is dispatched to Mars to investigate. As they enter Mars' orbit, the ship is exposed to a large solar flare, which fries much of its circuitry. Most of the crew go to the Mars surface, with the pilot staying on-board to try to save the ship. The crew jettisons the landing gear and lands, fatally injuring the surgeon/philosopher. The survivors march to a nearby base previously set up by un-manned missions. The base is kaput. One survivor kills another without the others knowing it. They discover that they can breathe the air. The pilot tells them that if they can get to an old unmanned rover several hours away, they can make it back to the ship.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 24 2014
Format: DVD
As far as the movies are concerned, Mars is cursed. Almost every movie set on the red planet has been a complete flop.

Unsurprisingly, "Red Planet" belongs to that pack of awful Mars movies. However, it is somewhat better than the typical bad Mars movie, since it basically follows the typical monster-movie formula with no pretensions of being anything new or special. The only problem is a single, massive plot hole that sucks out the center of the movie... which is oxygen-pooping bugs that literally come from nowhere.

Since Earth is hopelessly overpopulated and polluted, humanity has begun terraforming Mars. For the past twenty years, they have been sending bioengineered algae to Mars -- but then the oxygen levels start dropping, and nobody knows why. So the first manned mission sets off for Mars, led by Commander Kate Bowman (Carrie-Ann Moss) and populated by the usual baffling mix of weirdos, hotheads and a space janitor (Val Kilmer).

But when things predictably go horribly wrong on the ship, most of the crew ends up stranded on the surface of Mars, with dwindling oxygen supplies. Also, their exploratory robot has gone into "battle mode," meaning that it's going to kill then in a few hours. But the greatest threat comes what has been targeting the algae: omnivorous space cockroaches!

You can tell that "Red Planet" is a clunker right from the opening scenes, where Moss' voiceover awkwardly tries to cram all the movie's backstory, setup and characterization into a five-minute monologue. It's as if the opening text crawl of "Star Wars" also included summaries of the important characters ("Han Solo is a rogue with a heart of gold") so it wouldn't be necessary to actually develop them.

elle est bien s'incroniser avec l'image du bluray

Mediocre flick, mucho bad science. The blu ray transfer makes the "cool" scenes look really nice. When you need a scifi fix, it's passable.

A lot of people don't like this movie...I thought it wasn't bad. At least it's not as gory as some of them are. And Simon Baker's in it, so that's a plus.

This is one of my favorites. I was thrilled to finally get it. I received it in perfect condition and in the time it was supposed to get to me. I'm truly happy.
