It's a destructo orgy without any phony-baloney sanctimony about the fellowship of man -- or spaceman. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Zestfully tacky and broadly comic -- but never quite as funny as it promises to be -- Mars Attacks!' is fanboy-filmmaker Tim Burton's artfully crafted sendup of '50s sci-fi paranoia Full Review

Both a tribute to schlock sci-fi and a deconstruction of it, this sleekly cheeseball $70 million production is all attitude. It's not Burton's best by a long shot, but I came out smiling. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- The best thing about Mars Attacks! is that you'll come away believing you could have done the movie better. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Oh, those Martians! They are funny, mean little buggers, and they're worthing checking out. Full Review

...[A] continually inventive, parodistic sendup of alien invasion movies....The technically brilliant picture possesses a quirkily, somewhat facetious insider tone...
Variety

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [Mars Attacks!] works well enough, though never well enough to make up for the fact that Burton ultimately settles for less. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Tim Burton unleashes MARS ATTACKS!, a vicious, affectionate, brightly-colored homage to 1950s alien invasion movies. When a shiny silver flying saucer lands in the Nevada desert, a group of skull-faced Martians exit the gleaming craft. Although they claim to be peaceful, they promptly "vaporize" a gathering of unfortunate Earthlings, kicking off a bizarre high-tech war with wild special effects. This studiously campy sci-fi spoof, based on a series of Topps bubble-gum cards, gleefully parodies not only schlock B-horror movies, but also overblown blockbusters such as INDEPENDENCE DAY. This subversive film is helped along by an all-star cast including Jack Nicholson in dual roles as both a clueless U.S. President (with First Lady Glenn Close) and a Las Vegas sleazebag. The film follows the wacky WAR OF THE WORLDS-like proceedings from the points of view of numerous colorful characters, from the inane U.S. Press Secretary (Martin Short) to a trailer-park family (Lukas Haas and Sylvia Sidney), to singer Tom Jones (as himself).
