The Red Planet: Noviembre 10, 2000

In the near future, Earth is dying. A new colony on Mars could be humanity's only hope.
A team of American astronauts, each a specialist in a different field, is making the first manned expedition to the red planet and must struggle to overcome the differences in their personalities, backgrounds and ideologies for the overall good of the mission. When their equipment suffers life-threatening damage and the crew must depend on one another for survival on the hostile surface of Mars, their doubts, fears and questions about God, man's destiny and the nature of the universe become defining elements in their fates. In this alien environment they must come face to face with their most human selves. 2000  Warner Bros

Oh my god! Why oh why did they even bother spending money on a film like this. Mission to mars was bad enough...and now they have to dredge up this crap. Booooo!! Hiss!!!

The script makes no effort to explain plot developments.  There is no emotional attachment between the viewer and the characters.  Scientific elements were sometimes sloppy.

I found this movie to be great,fabulous it's a movie you should see, if possible. I enjoyed it even more the 2nd time. Instead of focusing on whether the Mars bugs are Nematode's or not, I feel we should be more concerned with, what we should be doing now for our environment, so that 20 years from now we don't find out it's to late to safe earth! Finally a movie has been made that is more than just another Sci-Fi adventure it has something for everyone from the special effects, to science verses religion/philosophy, and the human side of how a group of people deal with the pending doom. This is a must see movie at least once.

space is boring. this was "mission to mars II". web pages are still lousy in the future and people are still idiots. over and out, snore........

Appalling trash!  Although many times better than Armageddon which we'd rate at about 3 on the 100 scale.
Ex: a nematode is a "worm" not a cricket,
"solar flares"  on Mars - I don't think so, a dog that can't be reprogrammed,  taking showers in space, no eating or drinking for how many days of hard labor on Mars surface.........
Not offensive language or kid-porn though, so it was kinda fun to wait for the next whacko disaster or irrationallity.
