The Martian Description

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.

Earth sends its first manned probe to Mars in 1999, and a jealous Martian murders the two astronauts when his wife has erotic dreams of meeting them. Members of a subsequent expedition are hypnotized into believing that they have landed in the childhood community of their leader and have been reunited with deceased family and friends, and they are poisoned by the Martians. Col. John Wilder leads a third expedition and learns that a chicken pox virus brought to Mars by the first two expeditions has almost eradicated the Martian population. A member of Wilder's team becomes obsessed with protecting Mars from Earthman and murders some of the others in Wilder's party, before Wilder kills him. Colonists arrive on Mars to settle, among them priests seeking God, and a lone Martian masquerades as the most desired persons of various settlers. Global war on Earth reduces man's natal planet to radioactive waste, and most of the settlers returned there prior to the holocaust. Wilder struggles to assemble the remaining humans on Mars, who cope with their loneliness in different ways and will not leave their piece of Mars, before Wilder meets a Martian of past or future who tells him the secret of simple Martian life and convinces him to abandon the Earth lifestyle.

    I didn't get the movie from iTunes but I watched it on Amazon video and it was amazing how he got to grow 🥔s and eat them. It's the best movie I ever saw in the year of 2017.

    Somehow Scott managed to turn one of the best science fiction novels ever written into a boring, largely passionless and humorless affair. And what's with the whole BS iron man and ribbon dance thing? Ludicrous. And sad that Scott so missed the point of this story, because the book tells one heck of a good tale. Had Scott changed nothing, he would have had a winner, but he missed the point. Minor point, but anyone else see the little busy PLANTS in the photo above? They didn't even bother to photoshop the promotional material.
  • Good, but not as good as the book

    They skipped some major parts of the book, and also put in a couple that weren't there. Don't get me wrong, it was well acted and scripted, and if I hadn't read the book I'd love this. But I still like the book better. However, some people say it was boring. That's because it actually shows warned overcoming problems and his daily life which makes it a lot more realistic.
  • This movie is great
