An interesting movie, done in an unusual style.
26 December 1998 | by Wilde-6See all my reviews

I found the movie quite interesting. It is done as a "live" tv news broadcast as they are about to be landed on Mars. Of course things go wrong and the story is about them solving the problems and landing on Mars. I quite liked the ending, but won't explain what it is.
