Movie Summary

Antony Hoffman
Red Planet is a 2000 science-fiction drama directed by Antony Hoffman and based on the story of the same name by Chuck Pfarrer. It is set in the not-too-distant future, where Earth has devolved into a barren wasteland, useless for growing food or sustaining its human population. Experiments on Mars have proved promising for solving the crisis; however, after Earth loses contact with its Martian laboratory, a team of astronauts and scientists led by Commander Kate Bowman (Carrie-Anne Moss). She is joined on the trip by fellow astronaut Robby Gallagher (Val Kilmer) and civilian scientists Dr. Chantillas (Terrence Stamp) and Dr. Burchenal (Tom Sizemore). But the mission goes awry when a crash landing destroys the team's communications array and sets AMEE, a robot drone intended to assist them, into a deadly military mode. Realizing that their situation is dire, the crew's stress incites arguments and infighting as they realize that their mission must be completed at all costs for the good of all humanity.moreless
