Something has gone wrong at a remote scientific research station on Mars. All research has ceased. Communication has failed. And the messages that do get through are less than comforting. It's a level 5 quarantine and the only souls allowed in or out are the Rapid Response Tactical Squad - hardened Marines armed to the teeth with enough firepower to neutralize the enemy...or so they think.Written by
The first person shooter (FPS) sequence took about 14 days to shoot. See more »
No Marine would ever refer to a sergeant of any rank as simply "Sarge." This is only done in the Army and the Air Force. However, this could be because it is the Sergeant's "battlefield nickname", considering several other members of the squad are also called by nicknames. See more »
In the year 2026 archaeologists working in the Nevada desert discovered a portal to an ancient city on Mars. They call this portal the Ark. Twenty years later, we're still struggling to understand why it was built and what happened to the civilization that built it.

I have to say for a movie based on a video game it was not bad. Acting is pretty much what you'd expect, special effects are a little better than the actual game :/ Surprisingly though they did manage to come up with some semblance of a plot, so it wasn't a complete waste of time. Interesting direction, and if you've played the game before you can't help but laugh at how well cast the main character is, the resemblance is undeniable. Whatever, any excuse to look at The Rock for awhile will do. The gore was not at all believable (what did I expect?)a good movie for younger teen boys though, as they kept the content appropriate for their target market. I wouldn't watch it again, but it was alright.
