MARS ATTACKS! (USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Mars Attacks!—classic comedy on an alien attack—operates from a fresh, original storyline as one always expects from any work involving Tim Burton. It relies on an all-star cast and is comical to its core.

Storyline

Mars attacks Earth and defies all educated opinions on how this attack is coming down.

Additional Thanks

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It operates as a four-star comedy and completes itself with that satisfied sigh that states, ‘Got my monies’ worth on this one’.
