Mars Attacks!

Finally, my [Martian Movie Marathon](/2003/08/27/martian-movie-marathon/) is coming to an end. And what better way to conclude this than with Tim Burton’s “Mars Attacks!”, the definite satire of the Mars Invasion sub-genre. Packed full of cool jokes, Mars Attacks! portrays what happens when Martians decide to kick around Earth, well, for fun, really. The dim-witted humans easily fall for the Martian’s sneaky plan, and the end of civilisation ensues. Well, almost.

There really isn’t much point to the story, though. The movie consists of a hundred minutes of computer animated Martians killing weak humans. It’s simple, it’s fun, and it’s well done.

Unfortunately the DVD is a bit of a disappointment. There’s really no bonus material except a little bit of text and some trailer. Too bad, because some decent bonus material would’ve really rounded off the DVD. Still, if you can appreciate comic-book action and satire of science fiction, you ought to watch this movie.

  1. In this movie is interesting to see, how the Mars attacks to White House – olny sorry Marsha – because she died!
