Goofs

The dust storm shown on Mars would not have been dangerous to the mission and would not have required the action blown the astronauts so. The air pressure on Mars is a mere 6 millibars (compared to Earth's 1013 millibars), so the "fierce" duststorm would have had the impact of a feather on the people and space craft. See more »

Forget the Critics!
25 March 2000 | by BigRichSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was GREAT! People are forgetting the fact that they are seeing a MOVIE! And this movie Rocks (The mind). This movie is for the hardcore Sci-Fi fans, like myself. Yep, I like seeing space, space stations, planets, aliens and stuff other people might find boring.

I thought is was facinating that the base camp on Mars was so close to the "Mars Face". Of all the places that NASA has sent probes (in real life) they seem to be going to the wrong areas. It's like someone from another planet sending probes to the North or South pole on Earth and expecting to find life or signs of life there. I'm not implying that there really is something up there on Mars but just thinking from the scientific side of reality of what if?

I read and heard all the negative reviews on this movie and I had to set them aside and see it for myself, and I'm glad I did. My girlfriend was upset that I didn't take her to see it and I'm kinda sad that I didn't. Maybe next time.
