I recently saw The Last Days on Mars and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I reviewed it for Dark Media Online and hope that more people will pick this one up and give it a chance.
A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.
My Rating: A
Interesting Facts: Romola Garai, who has appeared in more than a few period pieces, stated that “wearing a space suit is exactly the same as wearing a corset. It’s equally uncomfortable”; Romola Garai, Liev Schreiber and Sally Hawkins were the first three actors to sign on to star in the film; in May 2012: Olivia Williams replaced Sally Hawkins, who had to drop out due to personal commitments; and Screenwriter Clive Dawson tried to be faithful to the original short story by Sydney J. Bounds, “The Animators” (however, in the story, the crew was integrated by six men. For the adaptation, Dawson added two new characters and wrote some of them as female characters).
