Luis Fernando Peña,
When asked what appealed to her about Last Days on Mars, Romola Garaianswered that "it was a science fiction film and, in that way, it was really different from anything I'd done before" and that she "was very attracted to doing something different. It had a great cast attached when I auditioned for it, and a really good director". She added that she loves science fiction and reads a lot of science fiction, so she "was really excited to do something in that genre". See more »
Smells like cold french fries, but with a mysterious aftertaste.
This film is as mediocre as hell. It just doesn't get any more "meh" than this.
However, a more interesting topic for debate is, how did this ever leave the launch pad in the first place? It's the sort of well-trodden path that usually ends up on a cable channel with actors you've never heard of. Yet, that isn't the case here. How did they get so many quality actors in such a late-night TV-grade film?
To be fair, there isn't actually anything truly monumentally wrong with it. Cept, it's a few decades too late. More than a few. Even as an 80's film, it still might have been criticized as being derivative and having not an ounce of originality. And yet this is a brand spanking new film right off the showroom floor.
Again I ask, how???
I imagine the story behind the making/funding/casting of this film will be entertaining to watch, if such bonus material is made available.
But as for the film itself, "Tired" isn't a strong enough term. The themes in this film are beaten down to a tiny nub on the pimpled backside of a stereotype's soggy bum. So for the third time I beg...how how how???
It's a film that just doesn't make sense. And it's based on a short story from a guy whose last writing credit is from 1986, and directed by a guy who's never directed a feature film.
For the fourth time, HOW????
I must find out more. The questions are far more fascinating and potentially entertaining than the film was. Did the producers blackmail these very qualified actors? Was there £7,000,000 which absolutely had to be spent before the end of the quarter to ensure future funding and/or tax benefits?
It's a film which shouldn't exist, but does. With actors who'd normally never be in such a production, but are. Directed and written by people who shouldn't be involved with a major film, but were.
A mystery/enigma/puzzle which must be solved!
