We enjoyed this teen flick with extremely sold acting, especially by the two younger leads: Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson are both very good indeed. It wasn't too angsty, thank goodness, and all situations were handled with tact and humour, which we loved. The science isn't perfect but we didn't care a whit. Also appreciated the ending.

An original road trip teen romance sci-fi except the script was littered with bad science. To enjoy the film, had to put on and take off thinking hat constantly - too much for entertainment. The mid twenty year old Britt Robertson's performance as a high schooler was fun as her recent roles in "Tomorrowland 2015" and "Mr. Church 2016." Last, excursions at spectacular locations in New Mexico (various,) Colorado, Utah, Nevada (Vegas,) Arizona (Grand Canyon,) California (Malibu) and from Earth (from space) were a treat and real attraction.

Surprisingly good for a "teen" film. The wrtier obviously know his Heinlein and the director obviously knows his HItchcock-I got a kick out of that! A hopeful ending was appreciated!

This movie was kinda disappointing. It wasn't nearly as good as I hoped/expected it would be.

What lengths would you go to for love? For Gardner, he risks his life to go to Earth to find Tulsa, as well as his father. When it becomes clear that his body cannot live on Earth, since he was born on Mars, his newly found father and Tulsa both have hard decisions to face to save Gardner's life.

Good play by the actors but a lot of unbelievable scenes like having continuous video connection between Mars and Earth , it may take a while before such images reach earth or Mars.

A sweet fantasy, that's mainly a love story between a youth born on Mars and an earthborn young woman who has been carelessly shuffled from foster home to foster home. Film's message: the space between us may be vast, but love can draw us closer.

A must see this summer! A film that incorporates drama, love and the future in an unlikely setting...Mars and then Earth. And despite a very different premise, it tells the age old story of how the heart wants what the heart wants, whether you are born on Mars or Earth. Carve out an evening and rent this movie from the library. NF

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. There were definitely some eye rolling points as the science of some of the things didn't really sit well with me. The story itself is a good one, and I'd definitely recommend people watch it. Forbidden love is almost always entertaining. Changing the ending to a more scientifically sound message would have made the movie a 4, possibly 5 star movie.

Felt like the sort of movie you can watch while you do the dishes. You don't need to be fully engaged to stay with the plot.
