Movie Info

A new space race is born between NASA and the ESA when Charlie Brownsville, Hank Morrison, and Dr. Casey Cook compete against an artificially intelligent robot to find out what's up there on the red planet. 'Mars' follows these three astronauts on the first manned mission to our galactic neighbor. On the way they experience life threatening accidents, self doubts, obnoxious reporters, and the boredom of extended space travel. This romantic comedy is told in the playful style of a graphic novel- using a unique animation process that director Geoff Marslett developed specifically for the film. Underneath the silliness Mars is also an exploration of exploration. Why do we want to know what is out there? How do we react to what we find? Is it really that important? And where does love fit into the whole thing? While our brave astronauts are out there taming the new frontier, their voyage is reflected, and sometimes distorted, through the eyes of the reporters, scientists, and politicians back home. Once they reach the 'new world' life and love flourish in the most unexpected places. --© Official Site

Critic Reviews for Mars

Low key, low budget and low energy, this animated space odyssey from the writer and director Geoff Marslett accompanies three mismatched astronauts to the red planet and the search for new life forms.

A memorably odd, mellow affair.

Mixing mumblecore with science fiction is original, but the resulting film demands more than it delivers

March 21, 2014 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Deserves a fate better than collecting dust, especially when its potential cult status is written all over it from frame one.

It's mumblecore in space, and If that sounds like your thing, then Mars can be a rewarding experience.

The United States's first couple being a cigar-smoking cowboy and his intellectually challenged wife is one anachronism we could all live without.

Audience Reviews for Mars

More like a college class project than a feature film. Cute but uninspired.
