Mission to Mars

Overall, an impressive film but with an unforgivable plot. In the year 2020, a group of astronauts selected to become the first people to set foot on Mars do so successfully, but they find something that they didn't expect. It's a white pyramid-like thing and when they shot a radar at it to analyze it, a huge hurricane occurred and it ended up killing most of them. Several months later, a rescue crew comes, and they find something else they never expected; an enormous face where the pyramid used to be. See the movie to find out what this face really is. The special effects are absolutely eye-dazzling and the characters are well-developed. This film tries to be like 2001: a Space Odyssey, but its ridiculous plot falls miles short of the boat. Nevertheless, it's full of surprises and is worth a look one time around.
