Editors Note
Note In order to protect the reputation of the American space program, a team of scientists stages a phony Mars landing. Willingly participating in the deception are a trio of well-meaning astronauts, who become liabilities when their space capsule is reported lost on re-entry. Now, with the help of a crusading reporter, they must battle a sinister conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep the truth a secret.
Plot Summary
Summary The government attempts to fake a mission to Mars, but when the astronauts learn that part of the scenario includes a "tragic accident" on the way home, they attempt an escape. A forerunner of the non-stop action suspense movie with terrific aerial stunts and an all-star cast.
Variety "...Gould and Telly Savalas are teamed...The duo is a bullseye...[Savalas delivers] a delightful cameo..." 06/07/1978
Uncut "A snappy script, cameos by Karen Black and Telly Savalas, well-paced action and a nice line in post-Watergate paranoia." 01/01/2006 p.136
