Red Planet

The space crew dudes can breathe on Mars because of these insects that eat algae and exhale oxygen. Gallagher (Val Kilmer) outsmarts the robot AIMEE, sets it on fire and takes its battery in order to power up the old Russian ship that he uses to leave Mars. Bowman (Carrie Anne Moss) rescues Gallagher as he's entering the Mars orbit and they study the Mars insects that Burchenal (Tom Sizemore) stored in a tube before dying.


Continuity mistake: In the earlier scenes on the planet's surface when the men still have their helmets on, it appears that the cameramen were also wearing space suits so that they would appear as crewmen on the visor reflections. Still too many people visible though.

Question: In the movie, AMEE is shown to have various settings, such as 'Navigaton' and 'Military'. It is also stated that AMEE is on loan from the marines. My question is, before giving her to the crew of Mars-1, why didn't the marines remove the the military part of her programming? What possible use could it have been to the crew?


Chosen answer: It was disabled. The part of her program that was in effect was merely the survival instinct, given to it so it could protect itself.
