Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 06/07/1978
"...Gould and Telly Savalas are teamed...The duo is a bullseye...[Savalas delivers] a delightful cameo..."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
"A snappy script, cameos by Karen Black and Telly Savalas, well-paced action and a nice line in post-Watergate paranoia."

Product Description:

In order to protect the reputation of the American space program, a team of scientists stages a phony Mars landing. Willingly participating in the deception are a trio of well-meaning astronauts, who become liabilities when their space capsule is reported lost on re-entry. Now, with the help of a crusading reporter, they must battle a sinister conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep the truth a secret.

Description by Lions Gate Home Entertainment:

Detailed Synopsis:
What if one of the greatest space adventures was really a hoax' The whole world is watching the first manned flight to Mars prepare. Suddenly, its astronauts are taken from the craft to an abandoned desert hanger where NASA's director tells them their life support systems have failed. Because the mission's success is crucial to future space programs, he orders them to take part in a simulated Martian landing as cameras roll. If they refuse, their families will be harmed.

Plot Synopsis:

The government attempts to fake a mission to Mars, but when the astronauts learn that part of the scenario includes a "tragic accident" on the way home, they attempt an escape. A forerunner of the non-stop action suspense movie with terrific aerial stunts and an all-star cast.
