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.

A nuclear explosion sequence on the Mars facility was filmed but not used in the final cut. See more »
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.

I, unlike other people, did not find this movie to be a disappointment. I didn't go into this movie with high expectations. A movie based on a video game will never have an amazing story, or exceptionally good acting worth an academy award. A movie like this will have good action, reasonable suspense, and be the type of movie you can watch again and enjoy it just as much as the first time. For the most part, this movie lives up to those expectations. It has good action sequences, it is a re-watchable movie, and the storyline isn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, they changed stuff from the video game during the transition, but it still worked, and you cant expect everything in the video game to work as a movie, they had to change some things to help the cinematic view of it. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to watch a movie with solid action sequences and anyone who is looking for some fun with their friends.
