Did not really impress me or get me curious
1 January 2017 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Before Mars" is a 33-minute live action short film from Osctober 2016 that was supposed to serve as an appetizer for the upcoming mini-series "Mars" (about colonizing the Red Planet) by Oscar winners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. It is a very Asian-American production and this refers to the people in front of as well as behind the camera. I personally did not really see the appeal though. It did not get me curious about "Mars" and it was pretty underwhelming. Early on, I found the characters rather uninteresting and one-dimensional and the supposedly spectacularly, maybe even touching, final moments made little of an impact to me. Actually, the idea of everybody being pretty much able and allowed to speak to high profile astronauts makes little sense. I doubt they would have responded to the call or even talked to the little girl as they must have been busy with more important stuff. Then again, I may be slightly biased as science fiction has never been my genre, but I still believe the script is not really good and the actors hardly elevate the mediocre material. It may not be a bad achievement, but in the Golden Age of Television that we are living right now, "mediocre" just isn't good enough anymore. Maybe people who already watched and enjoyed "Mars" can check this one out. Everybody else should better skip it though. Thumbs down and I don't recommend the watch.
