The Martian Review
By Jody Boyle
The film 'The Martian', directed by Ridley Scott is based on the book 'The Martian', written by Andy Weir. There are some well known faces in this film including Matt Damon, Kristin Wiig and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
There is a storm on Mars and the astronauts that are excavating there are forced to abandon the planet, but Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is struck by some flying paraphernalia and is presumed dead, so the others have to leave his body on the planet. Mark is actually OK though, and once he patches himself up he realises what has happened. Mark knows that NASA has no idea he is alive and so he starts a video diary as a record of his last days. Mark then begins to make the building they were temporarily living in a permanent place to stay. He begins to grow food and eventually gains contact with NASA, who then plan out how to rescue him.
Over all I think that teenagers to adults who like action would enjoy this film, but also anyone who likes comedy would like it.
The moral, or thing to take away from this film, is that: No matter how far away you are people will always help you.
A bit about the movie I liked was that even though Matt Damen is the only one on screen for a few scenes at a time, it was still a very enjoyable and intriguing film.One thing I would criticise about the film is all the science words that are used in the film, it could get a bit over whelming to hear them all.
I would definitely recommend this film as it is funny, action packed and entertaining.
I give this movie a ten out of ten (10/10) star rating. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
