The Martian is an adaptation of a best-selling novel about astronaut Mark Watney who left on Mars and presumed dead by his colleagues in order to escape a fierce Martian storm. Stranded alone with meager supplies on the hostile red planet, he needs to figure out how survive. While it is impossible for plant to survive in the Martial environment, he was able to figure out how plant potatoes and also figure out how to contact Earth and inform NASA that he is alive.

NASA and some international scientist had to figure out how to bring home “The Martian”. They had to use Mark Watney’s colleagues who are still in space and are traveling towards Earth.The Martian 2

The movie has a great plot and is easy to follow and also hilarious. Some of the shots, especially scenes of the red planet environment are stunning with the red sand dunes and mountains of rock outcroppings. Disco music from the 70’s was also properly utilized and blended very well to make the movie a wholesome hit.

The Martian 3

The Martian is so far the best film directed by Ridley Scott, he can make wonders with the right script. Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain did a convincing job so with the rest of the supporting cast. While they did all a great job, Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain have done this before in Interstellar their previous movie together with almost the similar plot; it looks like they are being typecast together.

The Martian 4

This is a great summer movie, big production design, great story with great cast; this is not one of those summer popcorn movies. While there is a few holes here and there especially the science part, it is a great movie and very entertaining.

    Visualmente agradable, pero nada espectacular. Unas risas de la audiencia, pero los que finalmente llegar a cansar. Se intenta retratar el personaje de Damon como super-genio, pero limita ridículo e increíble – casi tanto como el final, incluso para una fantasía película de ciencia ficción. Nada nuevo o especial de esta película.

    Movie full of cliche but fun nevertheless, I really enjoyed watching the movie.

    A somewhat good adaptation of the book, the movie is a generic blockbuster with a lot cliches and the characters are not developed at all making them one dimensional. But it is entertaining and has wonderful visuals.

    ¡Qué viaje! No pensé que esto sería mucho de las vistas previas, pero las buenas críticas me hizo darle una oportunidad y me alegro de haberlo hecho. Una excelente película de supervivencia sobre las probabilidades imposibles superar con la voluntad de vivir. Matt Damon obtiene la mayor parte de la atención, pero todo el elenco es genial. Hay un equilibrio perfecto del humor y corazón!

    Un film d’astronaute ok qui vous oblige à vraiment profiter de vraiment regarder et écouter Matt Damon parler à lui-même et l’appareil photo comme il survit étant laissé sur Mars. Juste au moment où vous avez trouvé vraiment ennuyé, le film revient Earthside à la NASA comme ils travaillent lentement pour obtenir les communications de travail … et le lancement d’un réapprovisionnement à lui. Je suis sûr qu’il suit le livre, mais vous regardez le film est comme regarder une personne jouer Tic Tac Toe avec eux-mêmes. La «science» qu’il utilise pour survivre est assez intéressant, et Matt fait un bon spectacle de figurer sur des trucs. Ridley Scott fait un film décent, mais pas un film passionnant ou grande. Nous sommes tous heureux quand il est sur de sorte que vous pouvez vérifier vos e-mails manqués.

    This movie was better than most of its genre like Gravity and Interstellar and it is more believable than these 2 movies. Visually stunning and great performances, one of my favorite films of the year!
