Mars Attacks is a satire of the Science Fiction genre. In the movie a fleet of Martian spacecraft surround the world's major cities, and all of humanity waits to see if the alien visitors follow through with their claim that they've come in peace. U.S President James Dale receives assurance from science professor Donald Kessler that the Martians mission is a friendly one. However, a peaceful exchange ends in the total annihilation of the United States congress, forcing the military to call for a full scale retaliation against the alien invaders as they become outmanned, and outgunned by the martians at every step of the way.
