Trivia

The mission liftoff is depicted by stock NASA footage of three different rocket takeoffs; SA-201, SA-202, and a third, unidentified Atlas rocket. Several rocket scenes of the landing and second takeoff make use of the Atlas rocket footage. See more »

Goofs

The same stock NASA footage of a stage separation is used three times. First during the actual stage separation, then in reverse to depict the docking of the supply ship, and once again in reverse and zoomed in to depict the landing on Mars. See more »

A 1950s sci-fi movie - made in 1968!
10 March 2003 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

If it weren't for the music (such as the "No More Tears" song - which has NOTHING to do with what happens!), you would swear this movie was made in the 1950s, with the dated clothing, attitudes, clunky props and special effects (with a spaceship that looks like a Campbell's soup can!) But the biggest problem is that movie is just boring. How boring is it? Well, it takes HALF the movie before they finally land on Mars! There is occasionally an interesting visual, though you'll most likely be asleep before you get to see even half of them.
