"Let There Be Life."


  • Director: Brian De Palma
  • Genre: Drama, Mystery & Suspense, Science Fiction & Fantasy,
  • Studio: Red Horizon Productions
  • Widescreen | Duration: 130 Mins

Brian De Palma slums it with his first science-fiction melodrama, which comes loaded with sentiment, camp moments and risible dialogue. However, while there's nothing new in this Red Planet space opera (mostly lifted from 2001: a Space Odyssey and Close Encounters of the Third Kind) the Carrie director covers its drawbacks with pristine craftsmanship, trademark suspense sequences and a full quota of sharp computer visuals. The age-old question "Is there life on Mars?" is answered by Nasa astronauts Gary Sinise and Tim Robbins when they embark on a rescue mission to the planet and make an extraordinary discovery. It may be rather overcooked, but De Palma's outer-space adventure is still very watchable.
