Something has gone wrong at a remote scientific research station on Mars. All research has ceased. Communication has failed. And the messages that do get through are less than comforting. It's a level 5 quarantine and the only souls allowed in or out are the Rapid Response Tactical Squad - hardened Marines armed to the teeth with enough firepower to neutralize the enemy...or so they think.

When Sarge uses the severed hand to open the advanced weapons armory, the computer voice (and subtitles) say, "Welcome, Dr. Patricia Tallman." The character is named in the credits as Dr. Hillary Tallman. Much like the inclusion of John Carmack's name, this is a subtle insider reference, but one that is arguably more likely to be noticed than the name of ID Software's infamous co-founder Carmack.

When Portman and Goat check the chemical levels in the airlock, Portman mentions magnesium, chromium, and lead. We see his "chemical detection" device, and in the order he stated, follow the symbols Mg, Cr, and Ld. The symbol for lead is not Ld, but Pb. However, this is not necessarily a goof, since the device is not labeled as a Periodic Table, and the display may be "dumbed down" for common usage by lay people. "Ld" is a reasonable abbreviation for Lead for people without a chemistry or Latin background (Latin for metallic lead: Plumbum). See more »
In the year 2026 archaeologists working in the Nevada desert discovered a portal to an ancient city on Mars. They call this portal the Ark. Twenty years later, we're still struggling to understand why it was built and what happened to the civilization that built it.

SPOILER: When the end credits for the actors are shown, the survivors' names exit through doors. All other names (those who die) are blown up by the shooter in the FPS perspective. See more »
Despite what many others may say, this movie is VERY good for what it is: a mindless action movie.
I enjoyed the game itself very much and it really scared the **** out of me. I was expecting a horror movie, but i soon realized that it is an action movie. Well, what can you expect from an action movie other than lots of shooting and SOME suspense? If you think the movie is shallow, it is, but its supposed to be. Anyone who complains about the movie being a mindless shooting movie should realize that this is not the movie for them, so they should go watch one of their "emotional" movies if they want. However, if you need a break and just want your testosterone pumping so you can take a break from life and just be a manly man. If you don't like The Rock, then go watch a romance or comedy, this movie isn't for you. However, if you like the video game and like mindless action, this is the movie for you. Remember, not every movie has to have some deep meaning or evoke emotion, some movies are just for fun. This is one of them.
