Trivia:
In the first drafts of the script and in the novelization, the Martians' ray-guns had a variety of lethal and graphic effects on people. Examples of this include people being bisected, body parts cut off, literally exploding, melting, being shredded, having huge holes blown into their bodies, and literally turning into flame when hit by a Martian ray. However, to avoid an "R" rating from the MPAA, the film's producers were forced to tone down the effects of the Martian rays to simply having people be reduced to skeletons.See more »
Goofs:
Errors in geography: When the Houses of Parliament are shown during the Martian attack, they are shown in reverse. The tower with Big Ben is to the left of the screen, when in fact it would be to the right of the screen as the shot is from the south bank of the river Thames.See more »

We Come in Peace!, 28 August 2006
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

When the USA satellites photograph many flying saucers coming to Earth, the American President James Dale has a meeting with his advisors. He is convinced by Professor Donald Kessler (Pierce Brosnan) that Martians would be a developed culture and therefore peaceful by nature, in spite of the warnings of General Decker (Rod Steiger). The authorities, some civilians and the press prepare a welcome committee for the aliens, but they realize that Mars is actually attacking Earth.

"Mars Attack!" is one of the most hilarious and entertaining movie of Tim Burton. Using a parody to the sci-fi of the 50's and like a shotgun, he criticizes the politicians and their greed to be popular; the arrogance and lack of humility of some intellectuals; the lack of sensibility of the army; the lack of ethics in the press; the shallow behavior of the first lady; and some silly cults. In the other side, he highlights the importance of friendship, loyalty and love. I particularly like very much the characters of Jack Nicholson, Pierce Brosnan and Rod Steiger in the cast that is actually a constellation. Unfortunately Jack Black dies in the very beginning, because his character was also very funny. This movie is one of my favorite cult-movies, and a great homage to Ed Wood ("Plan 9 from Outer Space"). My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Marte Ataca!" ("Mars Attacks!")
