A fleet of Martian spacecraft surrounds the world's major cities and all of humanity waits to see if the extraterrestrial visitors have, as they claim, "come in peace."

Has a huge cast that all are pretty much there to get zapped to death. While the heroes are people you would least expect out of the cast. I like the Jim Brown character though who is a former boxer who takes on the aliens with his fists. While Lukas Haas and his Grandma have an odd but effective way to take on the aliens. Nicholson's President is funny but one note. No matter what he just wants to make peace with the aliens even after they showed many times they don't want peace. Mars Attacks is hated by many but I always enjoyed it. Since it conveniently came out the same year as ID4; it sort of feels like a spoof to it. However ID4 wasn't as wasteful to it's impressive ensemble.

Tim Burton gets thoroughly self-indulgent, with two or three dozen mixed celebrities along for the ride. Mars Attacks! is wacky, carefree and impulsive, with a pitch-black sense of humor and a penchant for cutting off primary characters' heads (or turning them into glowing skeletons, as it were) well before their stories have climaxed. The CGI effects are glaringly bad, even by mid-90s standards, but that may have been the point. Burton, fresh off his Ed Wood biopic, clearly wasn't ready to wave goodbye to the sub-genre of the chintzy '50s sci-fi meatball, and so he composed this tidy, self-aware little love letter to further scratch that itch. It's still appropriately satirical and funny, in the director's typical far-off-the-beaten-path style, though the gags and puns don't benefit from multiple viewings... even if they're spread out over the course of several years. Everyone involved, both on-screen and off, radiates with an authentic sense of self-amusement, and that's enough to make things work when they really, honestly, have no business doing so.

Good watch, could watch again, but it's hard to honestly recommend.

This is one of those movies that is good because it is bad, whether or not that is done on purpose, for the purposes of parody. Otherwise it's just a good old jump in "The Way Back Machine" to see a litany of cameos or cheap par More

**A film full of black humor, and for that very reason difficult to digest for many people.**

Black humor is doomed to be understood by very few, and this film, which is drenched in black humor from beginning to end, paid the price, becoming a minor failure. I believe that, even today, it is one More
