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.

:rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: More mindless evolution crap. This time it was caused by aliens. Tim Robbins, dies and Gary Sinise, has too much make-up on.
