ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Martian Child wants to make us cry. It nearly made me gag. This is an exercise in shameless and inept emotional manipulation. The film doesn't try to hide what it's doing. If you don't cry, it hasn't worked. There's not a single genuine human emotion to be found between the beginning and end credits. Worse still, anyone with familiarity with this genre will know how things are going to turn out fifteen minutes into the production. And it's not just the ending that's obvious - it's the entire transparent journey that takes us there. Martian Child offers no surprises, not even little ones. One could argue that its heart is in the right place, but that's about the only thing it gets right...Martian Child had a troubled production history and the release date was delayed several times. The resulting motion picture isn't a first rate disaster but it's unpleasant enough to leave a bad aftertaste. Formulaic tear-jerkers are delicate things and when a director crafts one with the sledgehammer-like subtlety displayed here, it's likely to offend those who value a degree of authenticity in their dramas.
