But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. Also agree with all the science sites explaining how the movie gets enough of the science right. He was captivating in every single scene, and managed to do what Tom Hanks achieved in Cast Away and single handedly gripped the viewers' attention completely with the help of a beautifully crafted script. They hate the differences that make people interesting. The absolute worst flaw is not even all the fake science, nor I'd it the overuse of disco music or the fact that the astronaut doesn't really get desperate and only makes cheesy jokes. Every step he takes is a leap.
Unfortunately, the material is too short for all that talent. Who ever watched Star Trek thinking that Kirk wouldn't find a way to save the day? I must admit that there are a few scenes based on scientific imagination. Damon is almost crushed to a pulp as the rocket leaves Mars, because it turns out that tarpaulin isn't as strong as industrial steel after all. And Weir's tale has enough tension, despair, adventure, mystery, and scares to become a touchstone sci-fi adventure picture. In the race to the escape craft, Watney is struck by a piece of flying debris, lost, and presumed dead. Either way, the nudity, probably included to show how emaciated the character is becoming, is not needed as ribs would convey the information. After realizing he is alone and will be for so long that he will run out of food, he gets the brilliant idea to try to grow his own, which we are supposed to take as a mark of his plucky brilliance.
Help us delete comments that do not follow these guidelines by marking them offensive. Other than giving Watney someone to communicate with, the ship's crew which also includes , Michael Peña, and Sebastian Stan just hangs around until forced to make its Big Decision, which results in a sub- climax that feels more science fiction than science. All of the other characters—including Chastain's Capt. First, there is a bit of language, a brief nudity scene, and a the somewhat gory impalement scene in the beginning. But he has survived and with few supplies, he will have to rely on his own ingenuity to survive and figure out a way to Earth that he is still alive.
Oh yeah, I'm stuck on Mars and will either starve to death or run out of oxygen, and of course the right thing to do is crack jokes and dance. My only problem of this movie is this movie is too long, and sometimes can be a little bit boring, but what makes the Martian a great film is for his writing, acting and special effects. One scene is in the spaceship where there is zero gravity, and just a few inches away, a fitness center has full gravity. Without detracting from the seriousness of the situation, director Ridley Scott infuses the production with moments of low-key, appropriate comedy. I am genuinely amazed at the number of bad reviews there are on here for The Martian.
Director Ridley Scott remains at the top of his game. If, however, you were hoping for a masterpiece of suspense that brilliantly captures the terrifying dangers of space, Scott already made that film in 1979. If you want your tweens and younger to curse like sailors, then this is the movie for you! Besides the fact that one does not really need. Matt Damon has given the right role until the end of the case. In reality, an explosion would have occurred within the first few minutes of the experiment. Why does it feel like a comedy by Woody Allen or Edgar Wright? The -nominated British has been mired in a late-career slump after a run of middling films that only served to dent his legacy, namely The Counselor, Prometheus, and Exodus: Gods and Kings. I'm a big fan of Ridley Scott's work as a director, but I feel that most of his recent films have been very hit and miss.
Do his crewmates come and get him? Completely unrealistic, no backstory or any details about any of the characters, pretty bad animation, and dramatic music is about the only thing you will Absolutely a disaster. The reason why is the f-bomb is dropped a couple of times. In the process, comes up with a tone that I don't believe anyone has summoned in this genre, certainly not at this budget level. For Mark it's life or death, but we infer that there are long stretches when the public has forgotten that he's stranded. The movie's dynamic plot played out this great controversy well. They all knew they had some great material to work with and ran with it.
Sean Bean as Mitch Henderson is limited to the little screen space. Some people on here have griped that it was 'predictable', but then, most movies are. It was great to see how the screenplay added extra material that was not in the book, and it enhanced the story to make it even better. The story is about astronaut Mark Watney is separated from his party following a fierce storm and left behind after being presumed dead. Wire up a few solar cells. It predicts new technology, new weather systems, and even explains how the human brain's neurons fire together in neuroplasticity.
To be honest, I couldn't have cared less if he had not survived. The movie isn't all hilarious as there were some real suspenseful scenes in this movie, but what I thought was so brilliantly well done is that Ridley Scott mixed the humor and the suspense perfectly together. This gravitation force is very powerful on the human body, which was accurately depicted when Matt Damon's character fell unconscious when launching from Mars. I was waiting for this movie for a few weeks and was greatly disappointed when I finally watched it. However, these supplies can only sustain him for a matter of months as a rescue mission from Earth will take 4 years to reach him. It's Cast Away meets Apollo 13, and this marriage is crafted beautifully.
