I loved this movie. Ridley Scott did a great job with the movie version of the Andy Weir’s story – and Matt Damon was perfect as the lone astronaut Mark Watney.
There were more events in the book that I wish they could have included in the movie. With a running time of 2 hours, I understand some things had to be cut.
Mark Watney’s attitude and determination in spite of his circumstances makes it a very enjoyable story to watch even though we’re not certain whether he will make it off the planet or not, until the end.
Such a great story of human determination in the face of disaster after disaster.

I rated “The Martian” 9/10.
