The Martian: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers 

"In your face, Neil Armstrong" one of the strong lines said by Mark Watney (Matt Damon) after being left out on Mars all by himself. He was presumed dead by his crew members after a fierce storm. Luckily, Mark survived but was left all alone with limited food. He must find a way to contact the Earth and tell them that he is still alive. Meanwhile at Earth, experts in NASA is planning to save him and bring him home. However, they must figure out a way to reach him sooner before he runs out of supplies.  

Finally, Ridley Scott redeemed himself after two disastrous films ( Exodus: Gods and Kings & The Counselor) and concentrated to bring a fresh fun film with The Martian. It is a mere combination of Castaway and Gravity with Matt Damon playing as a one man wrecking crew on the red planet. Matt Damon brings in his intellectual abilities into the character which shows determination in overcoming an almost impossible challenge. He makes Mark Watney a character to root for and a person with a good sense of humor. 

Story wise, The Martian kicks in with a blazing start and it never left the gas pedal all the way until it reaches the finish line. It is pure complete fun and excitement with thrilling bits each time Watney faces a major disaster. We just see him pulling a line, like "I'm going to have to science the shit out of this" to make the scene calm and lighter. Damon is surrounded by a caliber of brilliant actors like Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Kristine Wiig, Sean Bean, Kate Mara and Michael Peña that contributed well and done their part efficiently. 

Overall, The Martian is a fascinating spectacle that will definitely get stuck into your memory lane for quite a while. It is a groundbreaking sci-fi adventure that reinvents space into a new level.
