I thought this one was pretty darned good when I first watched it in 2001. Or was it '02?
Never mind. Wathced it again today. Pretty cheesy at times, but that doesn't ruin the movie. Wants to give off a HAL vibe, and actually manages to do so at times. It's like a bunch of SF classics mixed into one movie, and while it fails at times in that respect, it also delivers.

The CGI/SFX is exellent for 2001, and holds up extremely well to this day. You most likely won't get dissapointed in that regard.

If you're a Sci Fi fan and haven't watched this one, or if it's been a while, I think you might enjoy it as a first (of second) watch.

This movie is awsome, but you must see also " Stranded " because its even better.

The Abyss, Alien, Apollo 13, Space Cowboys and The Right Stuff in a blender, mawkishness mars what otherwise would have been a satisfying, if derivitive, addition to the genre. Left behind on terra firma in Apollo 13, Gary Sinese (who worked with De Palma previously on Snake Eyes) gets his mission this time around on a rescue trip to bring home Luke Graham (Don Cheadle), surviving member of a four-man expedition to The Red Planet that ends in disaster. The action is preluded by an overly sentimental pre-launch house party, which establishes certain character and telegraphs certain plot developments. The rescue party arrive to find that they're able to take off their helmets in the space station's rudimentary greenhouse thanks to the addition of a few plants (i'm sorry but I can't suspend my disbelief at this skewed science!) to find Graham disorientated but otherwise unharmed by his ordeal. The real reason for the storm that devastated the original mission soon dawns on the surviving crew, leading to much Abyss-like developments. Sporting perhaps the worst haircut in movie history, Sinese coasts through his role, and supporting work from the likes of Tim Robbins, Connie Nielsen and Jerry O'Donnell is perfunctory at best. Scores an extra point because the 'space' footage is unhurried.
