Meanwhile, automated interplanetary missions have been seeding Mars with atmosphere-producing algae for twenty years as the first stage in terraforming the planet. When the oxygen quantity produced by the algae is inexplicably reduced, the crew of Mars-1 investigates, and must continue the mission of terraforming the planet for human colonization. The team is composed of Quinn Burchenal (Tom Sizemore), an agnostic geneticist, Bud Chantillas (Terence Stamp), an aging philosophical scientist and surgeon, systems engineer and "space janitor" Robby Gallagher (Val Kilmer), and beautiful, but no-nonsense commander, Kate Bowman (Carrie-Anne Moss). Also on board are arrogant pilot Ted Santen (Benjamin Bratt) and terraforming scientist Chip Pettengill (Simon Baker). Mars 1 arrives on February 5, 2057, but a solar flare disrupts key systems, complicates their orbit and forces Bowman to remain aboard and repair them, while the others land. Their first goal is to locate an automated habitat established earlier on Mars in the Ares Vallis area to manufacture 26 months worth of food and oxygen in preparation for the crew's arrival. The landing craft is damaged entering the Martian atmosphere, veers off course, and crash-lands far from their landing zone near the habitat. In the process, they lose track of "AMEE"(Autonomous Mapping Exploration and Evasion), a military combat robot re-purposed to serve as their "Mars surface navigator", and Chantillas suffers a ruptured spleen in the crash landing. With limited air, Chantillas is left behind to allow the others to complete the mission. Back in orbit, Bowman deals with several disasters. She manages to contact Earth, which informs her that Mars-1 will crash on the red planet in 31 hours. However, mission control also believes it can restore engine function for a main engine burn and exit from Mars orbit before this happens. The disheartened men reach the automated habitat only to find it destroyed. With only minutes of air remaining, the men contemplate death by suffocation. Pettengill and Santen wander away to see as much of Mars as they can before dying. They reach a canyon and await death. Pettengil and Santen argue about the success of the mission and eventually fight, with Pettengill inadvertently pushing Santen over the cliff. Distraught, Pettengill returns to Burchenal and Gallagher to await death and lies about Santen’s fate. Believing that he would die anyway, Gallagher opens his visor and discovers that Mars's atmosphere is thin but breathable. For the moment, the three survivors are safe, though Pettengill is guilt-ridden about Santen’s demise. Despite the presence of breathable air, they remain stranded on the surface of Mars and are unable to communicate with Bowman. AMEE reunites with the crew, and the three astronauts notice the robot is damaged and try removing its power supply to reserve exclusively for her guidance device, effectively terminating her artificial brain. Perceiving their actions as a threat, AMEE's military programming re-initializes, targeting the men as enemies. It attacks the men, and cripples Burchenal. From then on, the robot stalks the landing party's trek across the Martian surface. Eventually, Gallagher is able to construct a make-shift radio using parts from the Mars Rover from the Pathfinder mission. With communications restored and only 19 hours left, Bowman instructs the men to reach an old Russian probe 100 km away and use its sample-return system to launch themselves to orbit. The three men begin the trek and discover patches of algae. However, during the trip, Bowman tells Gallagher that the Mars probe can only hold two people. Pettengill, paranoid about being abandoned, runs away with the radio in the early morning, only to be attacked alone by AMEE, which purposely transmits savage images to the survivors. Pettengill's corpse becomes infested with insect-like creatures feeding on his flesh, which Burchenal calls "nematodes." Burchenal discovers that the insects explode when exposed to flame. Along the way, they reach a large algae-covered field and Burchenal reveals that the insects are native Martian life lying dormant until the algae arrived. The insects eat the algae and excrete oxygen, explaining their volatile physiology. Burchenal retrieves a sample of the Martian life for returning it to Earth, stating that the insects can produce oxygen, which explains the fact that they can breathe, saving but altering the Mars project. Unfortunately, the insects go into a feeding frenzy and swarm Burchenal when blood drips from an open wound. Burchenal passes his pressure suit’s contents and sample bugs to Gallagher, sacrificing himself by igniting the bugs, burning the algae and much of the region's atmosphere. Gallagher finally reaches the Mars probe with only 50 minutes left for his launch window. Examining the probe, he finds that there is enough fuel to power the rocket engine, but not enough power in the battery to launch the probe. Gallagher creates a trap for AMEE, disables her, and retrieves its power core, using it to launch his improvised escape module. Bowman detects the launch and recovers the module; however, Gallagher has lost consciousness. Quickly reviving Gallagher with CPR, the two passionately kiss and celebrate their success in saving Earth. Cast Actor Role Val Kilmer Robby Gallagher Carrie-Anne Moss Cmdr.

The film was a box office bomb, grossing $33 million worldwide against an estimated budget of $80 million.[1] Critical response The film received negative reviews, with only a 12% "rotten" rating on Rotten as of December 2008[2] Stephen Holden's review in the New York Times was almost entirely negative, calling the film "a leaden, skimpily plotted space-age Outward Bound adventure with vague allegorical aspirations that remain entirely unrealized."[3] Notable aspects of the film Red Planet was the only film from director Antony Hoffman. Red Planet was the second film to be released in 2000 about a manned voyage to Mars, the other being Brian De Palma's Mission to Mars starring Gary Sinise and Tim Robbins. The High Orbit Space Station, featured at the beginning of the film, if looked at closely, is an expansion on the International Space Station. The basic completed design of the ISS is featured on top of the main complex, giving the impression that the station had been expanded upon over the years. This is also another link between this film and Mission to Mars, which featured the World Space Station. That station was inspired by the ISS, except with a rotating torus on one of its Main Trusses.[citation needed] Errors During a conversation between Burchenal and Gallagher, Burchenal mistakenly lists the 4 letters of genetic code as A, G, T, and P. The correct letters are A, G, T, and C.[4] Burchenal also calls the Mars insects "nematodes" which are in fact worms rather than the beetle-like creatures that evolved or were transported as contamination. As the "nematodes" begin to swarm and devour him, Burchenal removes and gives Gallagher his own exo-suit for the return trip to Mars-1 "for the oxygen," despite the fact that all crash survivors were on the brink of suffocating from empty oxygen tanks. Whoever wrote that is wrong, he had about 30 seconds to a minute of oxygen left because he opened his mask when it was realized Mars had oxygen. This was just enough to allow Gallagher to launch and remain alive long enough to be rescued. Music The music of Red Planet was composed by New Zealander Graeme Revell, with performances from French singer Emma Shapplin.
