Blu-Ray Review: Mars Needs Moms 3D
Good audio and video aren't enough to make up for this film's lackluster story line.

A quality cast of voice and motion-capture actors isn’t enough to make the tween animated adventure memorable in a good way. Simon Wells’ Mars Needs Moms has a predictable plot and is the perfect example of a movie made for the sake of being made.

Home Theater Forum’s Matt Hough reviewed the Blu-ray release and had these thoughts:

Video

3D has not been overused for gimmicky effect but has been well integrated into the high definition imagery. Depth of field is quite striking on Earth and especially Mars with its deep caverns and an exhilarating slide down a garbage chute that’s fun enough to replay several times (though scenes in space might have contained a bit more depth), and the use of multiple planes where action is occurring during the suspenseful moments of the movie is also very good.

Audio

The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound mix offers exactly what one would expect from the soundtracks of an expensively produced action film. Dialogue is sometimes engagingly directionalized but is mostly focused on the center channel.
