“What a perfect rivalry this film has with Brian De Palmau0026#39;s Mission to Mars. Two films coming out in the same year, set on the same planet, with the same production values and featuring casts of equal talent. While both movies also feature numerous scientific inaccuracies and stupidities, each has something different to offer. If you are looking for mystique, try Mission to Mars, but if you want action or thrills, then go with Red Planet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSet in the mid twenty first century, Earth is dying, and humanity has turned to Mars as a potential replacement. An unmanned terraforming experiment has been attempted (according to the introductory narration) Months later, it appears to have failed, so a group of astronauts are sent out to investigate. They are surprised and excited to discover not only breathable air but the existence of life on the barren cold red world. When their space craft shuts down however, not only are they stranded, but they become threatened by the malfunctioning of their navigator droid u0026#39;Ameeu0026#39;. These few individuals must survive to carry the news back to Earth which proves that man can live on the Red Planet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think the story works decently as a nifty sci-fi thriller. Mars in this film looks quite convincing, because the terrain closely resembles the photographs taken by the Pathfinder in 1997. The color scheme is made up of browns and tans, rather than the over saturated red from Mission to Mars. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRet Planet was received better than Brian De Palmau0026#39;s movie, and I can see why. Although neither of them are examples of great filmaking, I would recommend them both.”
