About the Film

From legendary director Ridley Scott (Alien, Prometheus) comes a gripping tale of human strength and the will to survive. During a mission to Mars, American astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind. But Watney is still alive. Against all odds, he must find a way to contact Earth in the hope that scientists can devise a rescue plan to bring him home.

Customer Reviews

A good adaptation of a superior book

As book to film adaptations go, this is one of the better ones, although of course, that's not saying much.

Virtually all of the science from the book is cut from the film, with the focus being on the more action packed parts of the story. This is a real shame, as it's what made the book so good. Unsurprising though.

Matt Damon is good of course, and Ridley Scott manages to not mess things up for a change. The ending is really silly and very weak, but that's one part which was fairly unchanged from the book.

Hollywood, Oh, Hollywood.

For anyone expecting this to be an action movie, step away. It's basically a science based drama that follows a mission gone wrong, based largely in the present with a little lean on future tech. This is one of those occasions where the film supplements the book. If you haven't read to the book you'll miss out on the facts and figures and tons of extra calamity that really emphasises the gravity of the situation. My BIG negative: Right near the end Watney makes an 'Iron Man' joke. In the book it remains a joke, in the film Hollywood turns it into reality and it becomes the only scene in the entire movie that departs science fact. For those who've read the book, just close your eyes and ignore the centre of thrust half a metre offset from the centre of mass, producing zero torque - Well done Hollywood.

Great film

This is a great film with a few laughs and some great visual effects. For The benefit of people that haven't seen it, this isn't a book it's a film and any comparison to the book is silly. Both have a target audience and both are successful in meeting the audiences expectations.

There is no comparison with interstellar aside from the casting. The film is easy to watch and the science isn't to complicated.
