    If you overlook how preposterous the premise is (which easy to do), The Martian is an ultra-engrossing, wholly satisfying film-going experience like no other so far this year. I was quite literally gripping the edge of my seat during the film's climax. Damon gives a great performance backed by a stellar cast, and his sense of humour matches that of the book most of the time.

    While, overall, the film could be seen as mildly nationalistic and safe, God dammit if it doesn't make you want to root for Mark Watney.

    The Martian is a good reminder of why Ridley Scott is a master director who has so much to teach aspiring filmmakers. Even in his later career, when he is as likely to make a bomb as a success, he can put out an instant classic film like The Martian to show other filmmakers how it’s done. The Martian is a movie that doubles as a teaching tool in problem solving, and an advertising resource for NASA. That’s because it shows the amazing feats that ingenuity and hard work can accomplish, while simultaneously showcasing the heights that humanity can come to by working in unison. It’s a bit on the idealistic side, sure, but maybe we’re due for some idealism in our pop culture. 8 years 6 months ago

    Honestly could not recommend this movie enough!
    The story was brilliant, the cast were great and especially Matt Damon, brought great charisma and humour in the role!
