The Last Days on Mars Bu-ray Review

DoBlu
22 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Last Days of Mars feels pulled from the ’60s sci-fi cycle, this after radioactive bugs slowly drifted from social entertainment consciousness. Things still came from space and ate people, but with snappier titles meant to lure in patrons with exploitative posters. If Last Days embedded itself in that cycle, it would be Zombies from Mars . And, like those features, it would be a torrent of disappointment.

Last Days On Mars, The

Rock! Shock! Pop!
17 March 2014
  • Summary: The Last Days On Mars is an enjoyable mix of sci-fi and horror that's well shot, visually impressive and performed by a more than capable cast. The story might not win any awards for originality but it's effectively paced and frequently quite atmospheric. The Blu-ray release from Magnolia isn't stacked with extras but neither is it barebones and it looks and sounds very good.

The Last Days On Mars Blu-ray Review

28 February 2014
  • Summary: Director Ruairí Robinson's debut feature, The Last Days on Mars , is a character drama disguised as science fiction. An animator whose 2001 short, Fifty Percent Grey , was nominated for an Oscar, Robinson was attracted to the script by Clive Dawson (based on a short story by British author Sidney J. Bounds) precisely because it was not about the wonders and mysteries of exploring outer space.

7 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Adapted from a Sydney J. Bounds short story, Ruairí Robinson's The Last Days on Mars opens with 19 hours remaining in an exploratory mission on Mars, which the script implies to have been a long and excruciating haul, calcified in the creases around the eyes of astronaut Vincent Campbell (Liev Schreiber).
