I'm guessing the studio didn't think the audience could comprehend such alien concepts as a female squad-commander, a female scientist, a female committee-chair, or a female police officer, so they put a disclaimer at the beginning saying that Martian society, for some reason, became matriarchal. And then for good measure, they made 2 out of every 3 characters lesbians and gave them dialogue like A: 'I need you straight, lieutenant.' B: 'I'm as straight as they come, sir.' A: 'That's too bad.'

Everytime Ice Cube is on screen it could've been Snake >:( Carpenter's weakest film - none of the characters are memorable outside of "hey that's Jason statham" hot observations and the music is atrocious. Gonna sit down and rescore the entire movie with tracks from Lost Themes and no I'm not.

Ice Cube, Statham and the naked woman from Species fight an army of rabid Marilyn Manson fans on Mars. Somehow this is anything but an endorsement.

Carpenter's again influenced by Forbidden Planet and The Thing as he shows a world of mysterious monsters. Like some of the era's sci-fi the silly slang creates shaky world-building. And executive meddling is everywhere--including an opening Star Wars scroll backstory. But he's a master craftsman who can dramatize a relationship between cops and prisoners while also showing loud, mindless action. But Ice Cube & Natasha should be an interracial buddy duo in more movies. Marginal recommendation.

Some weaknesses, no doubt, but the non-linear, story-within-a-story structure (including four layers of flashback) was kind of interesting, and the gusto with which it combined elements from other films was kind of amusing. Somewhat unusual in taking the side of the colonists against the colonised, and in portraying illegal drugs as beneficial. If the budget had extended to a few space-travel sequences and a greater variety of sets, I suspect audiences may have been a little more forgiving.
