An interplanetary epic of ingenuity, heroism, and high adventure, The Martian is that rare work of science fiction that’s bursting with optimism. Directed by Ridley Scott and scripted by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) from Andy Weir’s novel, the film features Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars, while a stellar cast — Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Jeff Daniels among them — plays the dynamic team of scientists and administrators pushing the limits of aeronautic science to bring him home.
The Martian delivers on both intergalactic spectacle and feet-in-the-soil character drama. – The Observer
