I didn’t know what to expect – how good could a lost in space movie be? First things first…..if you have to have one of the crew stuck on Mars, you want it to be
Jason Bourne er, I mean Matt Damon – resourceful, indestructable and damned hard to kill.
This improbable film is really good. It’s well-written, well acted, well shot. With the exception of a few shots in which the rover looked more like a small model than the real thing, Ridley Scott et al had me suspending my disbelief and going along for the ride.
The Martian is an entertaining movie that succeeds because we can’t resist the human spirit rising up over crazy adversity and impossible odds.
Go see this one!
