Excellent sci-fi and thriller about NASA and an empty Mars launch leaving the astronauts to run for their lives. It reminded me of that great political thriller film, The Parallax View, even though the content is totally different. The very end of Capricorn One seemed a bit contrived, but other than that, it was quite excellent.

I couldn't get this to work on 3 different dvd players.

A very good concept for a movie. I think I would have been more impressed had I seen this in the 70's when it was made. The story is the draw here more so than any acting or effects. The ending is a bit long in the tooth, as is the entire movie. Still, a very nice piece of sci-fi. And O.J. Simpson before he was crazy.
