Festivale Autumn 1997

Mars Attacks movie review

Burton Attacks!

When Tim Burton's name is attached to a film you can expect a lack of restraint. Big-name actors flock to be part of his camp-outs.

As the ultimate manic president Jack Nicholson is his manic best. Can you handle it? Will you spot in him his other role? And who is more plastic? Glenn Close as the president's wife or Lisa Marie as the alien who breaks into the White House using only her conical breasts.

It's the old story. Aliens meet Earthlings. Shots are exchanged. And our only hope lies in the little boy who was Witness (Luke Haas).

Mostly harmless.
