Critical reception[edit]

It is hard to believe that only US reviewers loathed this dungheap. Some scathing Canadian, British and Australian reviews would also be delightful to read. Varlaam (talk) 21:51, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Wiki pillar objectivity?[edit]

Biased reviews rather overpower facts? AnEyeSpy (talk) 03:06, 25 July 2012 (UTC)


Poorly written[edit]

For example, how does one witness a sound? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.48.0.104 (talk) 03:11, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

"A Martian then appears before the group." Is it a true Martian or merely a holographic image of such, i.e., part of the Martians' programmed display? Orthotox (talk) 06:11, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's a projection. DonIago (talk) 06:13, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Cultural differences[edit]

Not few movies from Hollywood received differently throughout geographic regions. This movie looks like one of them. Usually some movies get bad review at home but unexpectedly get good review in eu or asia. Orgio89 (talk) 05:42, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Link deletion Tuesday, April 8[edit]

Post Credits Scene[edit]

RE: In a post credits scene, Jim returns to Earth after deciding to leave the Martians' new planet. He's given a hero's welcome and reunited with his family.

I watched several versions of Mission to Mars and there has never been a post credits scene. Furthermore searching Google reveals absolutely nothing about a post credits scene. If such a scene exists it exists on a version of the film I've never seen in the theaters or DVD. Can someone verify or provide a source for post credits scene? Gorba (talk) 01:22, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree. I've reverted the edit and asked the editor who added that information to provide a source. DonIago (talk) 12:34, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

What about the original ?[edit]

I can find no mention in the article (or on WP) of the previous "Mission to Mars" film on which this 2000 one is based. I remember going to see the original at the cinema in the 1960s or 70s. It was a very low-budget film (motor-bike helmets for space helmets). Does anyone know how to discover the details ? Thanks for any help. Darkman101 (talk) 06:37, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
