A group of online gamers are invited to try a state-of-the-art virtual reality video game but things take a turn for the sinister when these masters of the shoot 'em up discover they will literally be fighting for their lives.
Captain William Stanaforth is on a one-way solo mission to take the first steps in colonizing Mars. Like all pioneers throughout history, Stanaforth will face insurmountable odds and life and death decisions as he rockets bravely through space.
While shooting within the primary vessel, Mark Strong (through direct account, as well as confirmed by the sound department) was singularly the conduit for Microwave Auditory Effect, an occurrence which was only first documented among stray personnel working within the vicinity of transponders during WWII.

In a voice-over in the trailer, Stanaforth reports; "The ship is going 160,000 miles per hour". This is 44.4 miles per second. The fastest spacecraft relative to the Earth was New Horizons, which set off to Pluto at 36,373 mph - 10.1 miles per second - considerably slower. The Juno spacecraft sent to Jupiter reached a record 165,000 mph, but this speed was relative to the Sun, not the Earth. The ExoMars craft sent to Mars left Earth at 20,500 mph.
In addition, a caption states; "The journey will take 270 days" which is a reasonable time to reach Mars. However if the craft really did travel at 160,000 mph it would only take 81 days, again showing that the value of 160,000 mph is incorrect. See more »
LIke SeinFeld on Mars ; A Movie About Nothing - On Mars
I had to stop watching 40 minutes in. It was THAT bad. Imagine if someone made a movie just like "The Martian" but with no talented actors, no actual plot, a poor screenplay and no cinematography. What a swell idea - Let's do it ! There is no plot. It's as if the faceless assassin from "A Game of Thrones" decides to make a movie,"A man goes to Mars. A man arrives on Mars". The End.
The acting is not believable. There is NO cinematography to speak of.The special effects are decidedly non-special. The plot is non-existent. There is almost literally nothing to see here. Why even make this stinker in the first place?? Don't waste your time - you've been warned.
