Critic's Review Heading
Average
To be fair, Mission to Mars the film is not nearly as similar to 2001 as the trailers might lead you to fear. It's more alarming that it's similar to the cookie-cutter Hollywood approach to any story. The film focuses primarily on the aftermath of the first manned mission to Mars in the year 2020, and a rescue mission sent to find out why they lost contact. Director Brian De Palma includes one typically dynamic 20-minute stretch of filmmaking, but he can't work up as much enthusiasm for the rest of the tedious script. This time around, he opts not to rip-off a master. This time around, it probably would have been a good idea.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The year is 2020 and NASA has made another giant leap for mankind—successfully landing a team of astronauts on Mars. However, shortly after their arrival on the Martian surface, Mission Commander Luke Graham (DON CHEADLE) and his colleagues encounter something bizarre, shocking and chilling that brings about a catastrophic and mysterious disaster which decimates the crew. Graham is able to send one hasty cryptic message back to Earth before his nightmare begins.

Haunted by the enigmatic last communication received from the ill-fated Mars One crew, NASA hurriedly prepares and launches a rescue mission to investigate the tragedy and bring back survivors—if any. Co-piloted by Commander Woody Blake (TIM ROBBINS) and Jim McConnell (GARY SINISE), with colleagues Dr. Tern Fisher (CONNIE NIELSEN) and scientist Phil Ohlmyer (JERRY O'CONNELL) on board, the astronauts set out on a heroic six-month journey to Mars.
