Review

Run-of-the-mill story about a research team on Mars and their encounter with ... well, you know what. The good thing here is that the performers actually are giving this a real go, especially Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas and Olivia Williams, but the sad thing is that the filmmakers are a little bit too desperate to get rid of them. And as you know, it's never a good idea to rid yourself of the only good thing your film has going for it. By the half-way line, The Last Days on Mars has gone from semi-interesting to completely numbing, and unless this is the very first film about these thematics you've ever seen, there's really not much point going on.
