The movie is way too unrealistic. No one plugs in a USB cable on the first try.
I absolutely loved the movie. The plot holes were almost negligable and as a whole it seemed to be.... realistic! This movie is Cast Away meets Gravity meets McGuyver.
Ridley Scot is back! After some less interesting movies he succeed to make an great one again! It isn't the greatest movie I have ever seen but I couldn't recall one fault or issues with this film. The acting was great especially with his carry Matt Damon! The rest of the cast did fairly good. Matt Damons character stranded on Mars and wants to find a way to survive until he is rescued. This is the main part of the film which was surprisingly funny. Mainly due to the optimistic attitude that Matt Damons character had. It was even funnier than some comedies I have seen this year. Besides that there are some really suspenseful scene with are handled very well by Ridley Scott. He build the suspense fairly slow but great. They also created a great setting of Mars, it really felt like a place which was gorgeously filmed.
Overall I would gave the film a 8,5 but unfortunately Trakt would allow me to give that many hearts so I rated it a 8. Simply because I liked my 9 rated films more than this one. Nevertheless I had a really good time with this entertaining, greatly directed and interesting film.
You have to be kidding me. They've been advertising this movie with Matt Damon all over the posters and trailers and TV spots. He's listed as the top billed actor. People keep talking about him in this and how great he is. I see him promoting this film everywhere.
And then he dies in like the first five minutes. So stupid. I went into this to see why everyone loves him in this movie, but he gets hit by a piece of equipment and dies before I've even taken a bite of popcorn. Maybe, I thought, he isn't quite dead. But then NASA makes a full statement and everything that he died, so it had to be true.
I was so pissed that I just got up and walked out. I'm not dealing with this crap.
After a rather big disappointment with Prometheus I was not overly excited about this movie. But boy was I wrong!It caught my attention immediately and held it in its grip throughout the entire movie. Matt Damon delivers as usual, and the rest of the cast complements with him. This movie is beautiful in both visual and emotional way. An perfect mix of action, humor and science. Could Ridley Scott be back in the game? Maybe.
At least Sean Bean did not die!!
One of the best movies I've seen in a really long time. The cast was so excellent, the plot was well carried, the science was just untouchable enough for me to believe it, and it was about as pro-space missions as anything I've seen in a while.
The only question I'm left with is if Matt Damon gets stranded every time we send him somewhere, why do we keep sending him out there in the first place?
I thought it was a fairly average when really looking at all the aspects of this movie. 5 out of 10 as it didn't detract or add to my cinematic experience.
Amazing! I never thought I will be thrilled by potatoes.
Matt Damon delivers a charming and funny performance in a survival movie that could've ended up being dark and gritty. Thanks to Drew Goddard's witty and smart script, Ridley Scot's rejuvenated directing, beautiful cinematography and a great supporting cast, utilised to the fullest, The Martian remains hopeful and upbeat, an entertaining triumph of one man beating the odds.
Loved the film but the god awful disco soundtrack is horrible. I love Bowie but even that was distracting. I am going to read the book now....does it mention disco ?
Roughly one year ago I watched this movie, and almost a year later and I'm still dragged to tears. This movie tugs on emotion more than the cable tugged on Melissa Lewis when trying to retrieve Mark Watney. As an avid space nerd, this movie takes all the best qualities of space movies, great CGI, amazing acting, and a pleasant emotional trip, and wraps it in a space survival bow tie. I will be watching this movie, yet again, in the future.
After reading the book, the movie just seems to be just a fast-forwarded version which leaves out the essence of his struggle to survive. The movie left all that out and everything seemed so easy for him to overcome. Very disappointing.
A solid survival flick; good but could have been great.
Matt Damon puts in a very good performance as Mark Watney, astronaut-botanist stranded on Mars., The rest of the cast I found to be rather anonymous and flat. Sean Bean looked like he'd turned up to the wrong film and Jeff Daniels as the head of NASA didn't really work for me. As for the rest, they were the usual bunch of stereotypes and one-deminsional characters that nobody ever cares about. That said, Watney really is the only character that matters in this film and Damon was superbly cast for this role.
The movie is aesthetically stunning, well paced and very well directed. Watney's trials and tribulations are engaging, but I often found myself feeling it was a little too dumbed down ("I'm going to science the shit out of it") and the comic relief a little too overused leaving the viewer without any real sense of the danger or despair Watney would surely have felt in such a situation. The only time I felt any of this anxiety was in the last 15 minutes and then I really was on the edge of my seat!
Despite a few shortfalls I found it a very enjoyable film; it was entertaining, interesting and engaging.
While the book was excellent, there were several key moments missing from the movie. I noticed it straight away, such as the communication going back to the "Pathfinder" method, or the Rover breaking down. Or even the little moments between the Ares 3 crew or back on Earth. I understand there was a certain runtime, but my girlfriend (who never left the book) left the cinema quite disappointed, especially after hearing me rave about the book forever. Well acted, fantastic cinematography...but something was just missing.
Exquisite! Full of exciting moments, and just when you think you've seen everything - BAM! Another twist. Such a great film, great cast, 130 action packed minutes - there is not a single thing I don't like about this film. I rate it 9 because I rated Interstellar 10 (and Interstellar is beyond epic in my opinion) and I just wanted to make some space between the two (no pun intended). Anyways, 10/10 would recommend watching it.
An excellent movie with a superb cast. One of my favourites of the year. Uplifting and effective. Loved this.
I really feel that this movie gives the book justice. Yes, of course, some amendments needed to be made to shrink the plot into a movie format. It is important however that the spirit and the wit of the book remained. I truly enjoyed watching this movie and highly recommend it to anyone. This movie definitely desererves it's praise.
This movie was amazing, now first up I have not read the book, so they may have left lots out and changed a bunch, but I can't comment on that. However the movie was fantastic, sets, acting, writing all well up to par and Matt Damon nailed his role.
Similar to Interstellar in terms of scientific accuracy with physics and space without the "Bookshelf" ending. On that note, you could kind of see Matt Damons character going to to be in the initial interstellar mission and then doing anything to survive haha.
Exceeded my expectations for sure. Also plot twist, Sean Bean doesn't die!
The book is truly excellent. Here's hoping Ridley Scott and this fantastic cast do it justice.
Forgot how good a movie this is! It’s gripping, it’s dramatic, it’s sciency, it’s funny. Matt Damon plays the part incredibly well. And Kate Mara is cute.
Book nerd. I liked it but have some gripes. I like that it didn't feel as repetitive as the book. It doesn't really get into Mark's head as much as it could. I don't feel like I know his character by the end and that there's not that much character development. One other pet peeve is them showing a title card with which Sol it is but then he used the camera anyway so we don't need them. Wonder if they ever thought that making the film.
The Martian is an amazing movie that is carried more than anything else by the protagonist and the suspense the film constantly creates.
Matt Damon was undeniably the perfect cast for this role. I cannot think of many actors that could make spending an hour and a half with a single, isolated person so god damn enjoyable. This is made possible with what surely must be a mix of the wonderful character of Mark Watney and the perfect execution by Damon. Mark is a capable, intelligent botanist that is faced with a situation so dire that most of us would probably collapse in despair. Instead, Mark lightens up with his never-ending optimism and lightheartedness. As he explained to his students at the very end, when thinking that you will most likely die, you can either accept it and work on a solution or fail. It is so satisfying to see him immediately work towards a more than clever solution, make the absolute most of his situation and document all of it by joking around on the video logs, giving us a unique look into his daily life as the most isolated human in this universe. Not only is it fantastic by its own, it also gives the film an unusual permission for exposition dumps, since it is very much believable that he would talk to himself and the camera, leaving behind a legacy, even if he dies, to keep himself sane. His reactions are nothing you would expect when hearing about the (great) premise of this movie. Nevertheless, they are never unbelievable. He is not a one-dimensional character, we see months and years of his work crumble before him and he reacts properly, he is frustrated, has fits of rage, but also jests and dances and laughs and all put together make a very enjoyable 2 hours.
As a result of this, the comedy in this movie is outstanding. Even though it is very much an intense, gritty movie with a lot of weight to it, you will end up laughing aloud at your screen or at the very least smile at the silliness in an otherwise very desperate situation. So, yes, this movie focuses mostly on one character and so naturally the supporting cast has to suffer under it, right? Yes, but that doesn't take away anything from the movie. Each person has distinct traits and even though we see very little of them, you'll grow to love most of them, simply because they seem to have such a complex dynamic off-screen. This is also helped by the fact that even for the most minor roles they use an all-star, talented cast.
Now, onto the atmosphere. Ridley Scott does know how to make wonderful establishing shots, but more than that it's the scenery that makes the feeling of this film. The technology, the clothes, the spaceships, the tools, it all looks like it could be a true story, happening in just a decade from now. Due to this, it has weight to it that not many science fiction movies can accomplish. I believe this kind is called "hard science-fiction" and The Martian definitely falls under that category. It feels as if the science behind it all drives the plot forward, as problems arise from the limits of the near-future technology and it's Mark's understanding of basic science that enables him to survive, not some plot holes or ex-machinas. From the beginning to the very end the audience believes that everything can and will go wrong, we feel with the character's overwhelming joy of his achievements and the subsequent loss of everything, which leads to a constant feeling of danger and unpredictability. The often unassuming shots, such as during the night in the primitively patched up base of operations and the docking scene on the space station, in both of which nothing bad happens, add a lot to that.
So, all in all, even though the collaboration with NASA may have lead to too much time spent on Earth, as theorized by Chris Stuckmann, it added a whole new layer to the film. It is noticeable that the writers and the filming crew sent hundreds of questions to NASA, made hundreds of photos and, to be frank, I don't mind that this benefits NASA in popularizing space travel.
It was OK. Goofy at times, which didn't seem the right tone in my opinion. The constant sountrack was also a mood killer and not a builder. Is this a comedy or drama or what? It seemed unfocused and didn't have any balls to invest in a sytle. Interesting ideas but its also has the typical space blockbuster feel and structure. I couldn't fully get emotionally invested and it felt like the movie wanted you to be. A lot of charafters are just boring, and they rely on pop cilture references a lot to try and add depth. It's like the dialogue during some character bonding was aimed at teens. And I'm no space engineer, but I think fixing a de-pressurising space helmet with gaffa tape was ridiculous. The end ezcue was laughable. I know they needed a tense moment but come on... use your brain. I was gonna give it a 5 but Matt Damon tried hard and its not awful.
Thanks Southpark for making me hear Matt Damons name in an R-tard voice every damn time lol
A good old fashioned escape movie dolled up in a fancy sci-fi dress. The story is compelling and the characters are charming. Very enjoyable, if not particularly deep.
What an amazing movie...Matt Damon is one hell of a actor and amazing story with amazing special effects... From the start all u do is feel for Matt Damon's character and his hopes on getting back to earth..only thing they should of showed was him being greeted by all the public when he arrived on earth...but it's a 10/10 movie for me.....
One of the best science fiction movies of all times.
Much better that i expected. Loved this movie
One of the best space movies ever!
Potatoes... Potatoes everywhere!
Great movie! Iron Man style ;)
A really bad movie. Hollycrap.
Just AMAZING!!!The tension, the drama, everything was just too good to watch.Great job Mr. Damon.
It's just a poor comedy film. I laughed few times, but nothing more to appreciate.
A very nice movie about discovery, hope, physiological endurance and resourcefulness. If you think you will like or actually like the movie go get the book, beforehand or afterwards, you are not likely to be disappointed.
The Martian depended on Matt Damon's performance in the lead role. In contrast to spiritual predecessors like Gravity and Castaway it wasn't a one-man show--there's a murders row of supporting actors and an important story of what's going on back home--but the film spent a great deal of time with Damon's Mark Watney and his lonely trials and tribulations on a desolate planet. That meant that for much of the movie, Damon alone had to convey his character's distress, his resolve, his humor, and his humanity, with no one but the camera to talk to, and he did it with flying colors. I have yet to see many of the big films and lauded performances of 2015, but it's hard to imagine many roles with a degree of difficulty like this one, and the performance Damon delivered more than lived up to the challenge.
Part of what makes Watney likable and endearing enough that the audience not only tolerates spending the film with him, but invests in his plight and attempts at rescue, is the humor in the film. It's not surprising in a film penned by Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Drew Goddard, but despite the extreme premise of the film and the world's-watching stakes of the conflict, the dialogue is filled to the brim with laughs about the silly and mundane in the midst of the weighty circumstances Watney and the team trying to help him back home, and the film includes so many of those small human moments that help viewers buy into a plot focused alternatively on solving science problems and technobabble.
Those human moments--from demeaning then giving into Commander Lewis's taste in music to reassuring your boss that a profane kiss off might have been meant in a positive way--are important, because beyond Watney, most of the film's characters are quick sketches. That never hurts the film, however, because even when the characters feel stock--Donald Glover as the unorthodox young engineer, Jeff Bridges as the kind-hearted but pragmatic head of the agency--each of the actors in a stellar cast sells their role in the supporting ensemble with aplomb and each of them has just enough flavor to make them distinct.
The tone of the film helps on that front as well. The way The Martian balances the crestfallen sense that Watney is doomed, the joy in his sisyphean efforts to survive, the tension in the moments where he struggles to find a solution or the efforts to rescue him hit a setback, and the simple but sweet reminders that these are human beings who do silly things even in a crisis. Keeping things light, while never sacrificing the emotion or the stakes of the narrative is a difficult task, but Goddard's script and Ridley Scott's direction manage it with style.
It's hard to believe that Scott is the same director who unleashed Prometheus on the world just a few short years ago. Whereas one space-bound film, albeit one that hews more toward science fiction, is practically incoherent in terms of its plot, The Martian builds plausibly and organically, to where despite the film's 2+ hour runtime, the narrative progresses so smoothly, and the characters' decisions and actions seem so natural and logical in that progression, that you barely feel it.
At the same time, Scott makes the most of his setting and his stars. The production design, from the realistic but futuristic ships and equipments in space to the rust-colored vistas Scott sweeps through in wide shots, add to both the reality and the beauty of the film. Scott also frames much of the film through third-person video screens, whether it's Watney's video journals or CNN coverage of a NASA press conference, which gradually fade into a more traditional shot, conveying both a sense of verisimilitude in these somewhat outlandish events, but also a personal, intimate sense of place, especially with the film's protagonist. In total, it creates beautiful images to wow the viewer with the scope and magnitude of the setting and the problem, but also brings the audience closer to the protagonist.
The film's greatest achievement is how it fosters a complete buy-in with Watney's struggle. In a film that feels like a cross between Hatchet and Apollo 13, the way The Martian shows its main character solving problem after problem with good humor and without making him seem like an implausible wunderkind breeds affection and investment. In many survival films along these lines, the endgame feels inevitable, and the emotional stakes of the climax suffer. The Martian does falter a bit in manufacturing additional, piled on drama at the film's close, but there's such a catharsis in its conclusion, in the form of a beautifully composed scene that, good-or-bad, represents the culmination of the personal struggle of Watney, and the delirious efforts of Vincent Kapoor (a crackling Chiwetel Ejiofor) on the ground.
The Martian features the trappings of classic film--the dizzying shots, the foxhole compatriot mentality, the best and brightest scrambling to do right, and the man against nature narrative, replete with some leafy green symbolism--but it uses it all in service of the supremely human and nerdy. And it can boast a virtuoso performer who can amuse and enthrall with nothing more than a disco soundtrack and a potato. The excitement, pathos, and laughter Scott, Goddard, Damon, and their collaborators are able to wring from what is often a very solitary journey is no small achievement, and The Martian offers a feel-good story that earns every bit of the feeling.
Anything can happen if you try hard....in the movies only !
It's simply perfect!I haven't watched a movie with +2 Hours of length without getting bored for a while This movie is brilliant and it's also funny .
Outstanding film, as a person who loves the idea of space and especially the technicalities of getting there, it really got me thinking!. Great movie.
Rather predictable and sometimes boring film that brings little new to the table .The most interesting parts are of Matt Damon trying to conceive of different ways to survive in the hostile environment of Mars, unfortunately these parts are constantly interrupted by lazy expository scenes scattered throughout the film, taking place inside of NASA's control center, needlessly reminding us of what's at stake for the main character until it becomes painfully commonplace. If you've seen any of Scott's other recent films, there's really nothing new that stands out in The Martian from his current directorial efforts. Being adapted from a rather solid book, there's strong sense of writing here to be found for sure, but anyone hoping to find a glimpse of Ridley's past artistic ingenuity will be walking away disappointed, yet again. In terms of genre, you already know what to expect if you've seen Apollo 13. It's an OK film, but nothing extraordinary. 6/10
Even if i am not the biggest Damon's fan i think his perfomance was great in this movie.Also it's so nice to see Scott back in form.7.7/10
I say we send Matt Damon to mars after watching this movie. What a great performance
If you watch this, please watch the Extended edition clocking at 2h 30. It really adds depth to the solitude and struggle. And lifts this film to damn near perfect!
What a visually stunning, brilliantly acted and fantastically directed film.
It's a Hollywood movie that shows film-making at its best. Heart, class, excellence.
Matt Damon is left for dead during the rushed evacuation of a small-scale Martian expedition. It's like Apollo 13 on steroids, mixed with short dashes of 127 Hours, MacGyver and Survivorman. Much less of a one-man show than I was expecting, which gives the film a little more spirit but also a more conventional structure. I think it would've been a far more interesting, daring picture if we'd seen more personal video journals from space and less debate around a round table at NASA, if just because we've seen the latter film several times already.
Damon is excellent, bringing a blend of hopeless desperation and punchy good humor that gives him credence as both a technical expert and a likable, relatable everyday guy. The supporting cast is scattered with some strange choices, though - Kristen Wiig in a dead-serious role and Sean Bean as a kind-hearted supervisor are particularly out of place - which left me enjoying the scenes with Damon alone in the red landscape much more than the rescue effort.
Still, the epic moments far outweigh the sub-standard ones, there's a strong sense of humor beneath all the suspense, and the visuals are really pretty incredible. Bonus points for getting so much of the science right, too. I'm conditioned to expect a lot of flaws when I dig deeper into sci-fi like this, but apart from one notable exception (the weather on Mars), the experts looked at this one and said "Yeah, that could actually work." Cool stuff.
Absolutely Crazy ! Just realized I love this kinf of movies
A great space movie. Matt Damon is fantastic and really needs to be with all the time he spends alone on screen. It's shot beautifully. The story moves well and is pretty funny.
Finally watched Martian . I am in Awe .
I agree ... disco does suck. That said, I'm fairly certain Abba was not considered disco, right? Good movie, quite enjoyable.
this was a fun movie to watch. I watched the movie shortly after finishing the book and I couldn't help but compare the two ... ALOT. I didn't know how they would adapt the book into a movie because the book was told in journal entries, but they did a good job with that. the cast... it's pretty obvious what I'm gonna say but a black guy plays a brown which is close enough.. I guess? I feel like if you haven't read the book you will be confused , but that aside it's still a good movie to watch and it's amazing, visually. Nice film Bois, finished this one at 1:22AM after starting it at 10:30PM...
Jeff Daniels has come a long way from My Favourite Martian
One of the best movies I've watched in my life.
There is not much left to say about this movie except... if you can, watch this movie on 3D is amazing!!!
The book is great, but the film is not even the half of it.
Extremely engaging. Damon is great in the role, and delivers quite a bit of humour, which is unexpected from a Ridley Scott movie. It's surprisingly thrilling for a movie about sending a rescue mission to save a marooned man. The attention to authenticity is appreciated, but what's more surprising is how exciting the science is.
3D in this movie was spectacular, really well done.
Yes there are huge plot holes, and yes there are lots of space cliché, but the scale, the scope of this movie can make you completely forget all of that, and have your heart pump beat after beat with all the airlocks, spacesuits, hatch doors, rockets and space stations made kapoom powpow exploding just to get Matt Damien back to earth! ha! kinda sounded ridiculous but it did work its magic.
The Martian is Ridley Scott showing why he is the revered director he is. He gets fabulous performances from a stellar cast (no pun intended) moves the story along at a rip-roaring pace and wrings every piece of emotion, humour, and drama out of the film that can be done. Drawing from an equally fantastic novel by Andy Weir the only difficult task the makers must have had was which parts to trim down or remove to fit the riveting story into the 144 minutes running time. Wisely the extensive and wholly appropriate humour was left into the narrative. This is nearly as perfect a conversion of the novel to film as I’ve seen in a long time.
Recreating the surface of Mars is a triumph and you can truly believe you are looking at the beautiful but desolate surface of the planet in all of those scenes featuring Mark Watney. Matt Damon inhabits the skin of the character of Watney in such a way that you truly believe he is stranded on the surface of the planet, that he is a clever, funny and overall optimistic scientist. It is easily his best performance in many a year. He makes Mark Watney a man you want to see saved and then you want him to tell how it happened. It is, dare I say, a triumph. There I said it.
I often say films have an able or great supporting cast but in the case of The Martian this is more than true, the stalwart Jeff Daniels alongside Michael Pen, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofo, Kristin Wiig and Jessica Chastain all can carry a film on their own but add them into the mix, give them strong and distinct characters and you have a perfect set of actors all adding to the mix.
The story is about a man being thrust into an extraordinary set of circumstances and having to rely on his intelligence and skills to survive, yet no matter how good these are he has to rely on his comrades and friends to be equally as brave and ingenious. An exciting story of peril on an alien planet is a big theme but it is boiled down to the personal level and infused with a huge dose of realistic and frankly very funny humour and instead of getting a scary and potentially depressing film you get a film about friendship, risk and optimism. The best of us will work together to help others. It’s a good message about how good we can be – a rare theme nowadays
This is a very good film, watch it.
This is a very good book, read it.
Marte1 2 3 4
Wow. I have seen this movie at the cinemas previously. I just watched it in 4K 3D on my 60 inch LG, and it was phenomenal. First Time I have truly appreciated 4k and 3D at home. Just awesome.
Un alieno giunge su un pianeta con la sua navicella. Mentre è sul pianeta i suoi compagni di viaggio ripartono lasciandolo lì. E allora l'alieno, abbandonato in un mondo che non conosce, deve trovare il modo di comunicare, telefonare a casa per far sapere che è vivo e che vengano a riprenderlo. Intanto, grazie alle sua abilità, impara a vivere sul pianeta, che subito gli sembra ostile. Finalmente la navicella dei suoi compagni torna a recuperarlo, mentre, tutto imbacuccato, vola verso la libertà.
This is a movie that I have to say that I have a bit of a difficulty in rating. Quite honestly I was sorely tempted to remove a star, or even two stars. Why? Because it is full of Hollywood nonsense, scientific errors, it is rather predictable and it did feel a bit like a Apollo 13 rip-off. Why did I not remove those stars? Well, it is rather entertaining even if, at times, I squirmed in my seat.
The movie starts of with a somewhat implausible event where a unexpected storm hits the Mars camp which forces the ground crew of the Mars mission to hurry back to the launch vehicle before it tilts over. The launch vehicle gradually tilts a degree at the time. Is it just me finding this strange? Would storms on Mars defy the usual rules of weather dynamics that they would exert a constant pressure which would cause a slow but constant tilt of a construct like that. No gusts, no change in pressure? And why would it gradually tilt at all? Once the force would be enough for the landing struts on one side to leave the ground it would pretty much tilt right away. Okay, I am being picky so lets give that a benefit of a doubt for the time being.
Obviously one guy is lost during the dramatic events. This is equally obviously 100% predictable. The fact that the guy is still alive after the rest of the crew blasted off is obviously also 100% predictable but then, this you should have pretty figured out from the title of the move after all.
A lot of the rest of the movie is following this guys quest for survival on Mars using the left over equipment at his disposal and the NASA crew on Earth trying to rescue him. Yes the NASA crew on Earth does discover that he is alive which, again, is pretty much predictable. Of course this gave Hollywood the opportunity to add a utterly dislikable political bureaucrat that is pretty much in the movie for one reason and one reason alone…to be dislikable. Personally I just found him tiresome. But then, Americans seems to like these kind of people given the kind of trash that we see being pushed towards the upcoming presidential elections…from both sides!
There are a lot of good stuff in the movie. Even though it is rather predictable there are some suspense in it, there are a lot of good scenery, and even though you pretty much knows what is going to happen you do feel like cheering for the hero. Given the script I think a lot of the actors did a rather good job of their roles.
If the script writers would have brought on some decent scientific advisors I would say this would have been a great movie but it was frequently goofed up with issues that was just stupid. Like digging down a nuclear reactor a few feet in the ground. What the f… good was that supposed to do? And the constant use of simple plastic and duct tape to seal the environment. Yeah, right. Sure, Mars do have some atmosphere so it is not vacuum we are talking about but then in other scenes they seemed to assume almost zero atmosphere and made quite a bit use of explosive decompression effects.
Okay, okay I am probably nitpicking quite a bit here but, unlike many Science Fiction movies, this one tries to give an impression of being within the realms of realism and it is just too full of classical Hollywood mishaps for my taste.
As I wrote above I still think it is a movie worth watching. It has some suspense, it is well done from a photographic point of view and the actors are doing a decent job. I think 7 out of 10 stars is a fair rating but it should certainly not have more.
Great movie! Enjoyed it even more because I'm a scientist myself- "Let's science the shit out of this!"
The book had a lot more explanations than the movie as expected but overall it honestly made me feel like I'm reading the book again with the tone and everything which in to me makes to more than awesome as an adaptation.
My mom had watched it months ago and told me she fell asleep in the middle of it, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Having finally seen it tonight, I have to wonder if we were watching the same movie! First off, it was unexpectedly funny. But also so intense! I got really emotional for the last half-hour or so, actually. Now I'm dying to read the book.
The moment The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was totally badass.
I do like a good survival adventure and being stranded alone on Mars makes for a great movie. However, whilst the scenes in space are really good I found the ones on Earth slightly less enjoyable reminding me of Armageddon and Deep Impact - ahhh 1998! So yes it is a bit predictable and yes it is quite farfetched but Matt Damon's character is entertaining and overall it is a very solid watch.
this is supposed to be horror dark movie about stranded astronaut on dune of mars desperately trying to survive while anxiously waiting for help, but why... why this movie is so light, fun and has so many comical tone and yet its a great movie... really defying any expectations..
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Lived up to all the hype. One of the best films of the year.
Great movie, great actors, loved the disco music! But I was left with so many questions about the space that were explained in the book so I'll definitely read the it when/if I get the chance.
In space... NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU LISTEN TO 80's Dance music
What a disappointment. Really poor and weak comedy film, i did not laugh at all, well yes I did when I watched the final scene where Matt Damon is being saved using a very unrealistic way ("Ironman") to reach Melissa. I could not believe what I was watching and it made me laugh, but not in the good terms. There were some moments I though I was watching a movie for kids. There's no suspense or intrigue 'cause you know during the whole movie that everything is gonna be alright. I really can not understand why people rate this movie so high. It is one of the most overrrated films I've ever seen lately.
Good holywood SF entertainment. Otherwise largely overrated.
excellent movie; entertaining, funny and just pretty good to watch. i would recommend...
Enjoyed it considering it had Matt Damon in.
Simply LOVED this movie, the humor the drama the story...Great acting, the small jokes especially the project Elrond one and letting Sean Bean explain it..EPIC! Also one of the few movies that Sean Bean doesn't die in!
do not surprise me a lot. some facts give me a lesson. looking up for Best Adaption.
Ridley Scott, again, delivers. Loved every minute of it.
As far as possible plotholes, logical issues or credibility is concerned - it´s a movie. Anyone who can´t understand that should watch National Geographic.
People travel to Mars in, what at least appears to be, a plausible fashion. In a rather entertaining way.
i must to pay with card or what i'm new in this things , help, please
A very good movie. Best drama\comedy balance I've ever seen.
A good movie for what it is. It does present a feel of isolation and Matt Damon hit it spot on. Visually it was quite stunning also.
Good movie, worked perfect I watched it a few weeks back just updating the information now
Brilliant, I loved every minute, the only criticism, I thought the suspense could have been built a bit bigger, as I always had the feeling all would be well in the end.
One of my favorite movies ! Matt Damon acted so well here (but who plugs a USB on the first try ?!)
I read the book and then went in to watch the movie. I'd recommend doing the same. If you don't like reading, just watch the movie! It is great!
This movie reminded me what a great actor Matt Damon is!
Excelente película! Totalmente recomendada. Uno piensa que las escenas en el espacio van a ser un poco más lentas y la verdad que son todas muy entretenidas. Muy buena.
i like it when i sink into a movie, yes i liked this for sure :)
THis movie was good but would've been better if they made it more realistic! Like everything was a breeze for them!
The trivia on IMDB are a great help for explaining Mars exploration stuff.
En algún momento todo puede irse al garete... todo va a irse al garete. Y van a decir: "Ya está. Así es como termino."Entonces pueden aceptarlo o ponerse a trabajar.
Wunderbarer, sehr spannender und berührender Film! Man fiebert so sehr mit und leidet. Große Leistung von Matt Damon!
Kitap ile farklılıklar var, bu bir gerçek.. Bütün bir kitabı detayları ile birlikte 2 saate sığdırmak çok zor olacağından ve Hollywood etsini kaybetmeden izleyiciyi sıkmamak adına yapılan bu değişiklikleri makul karşıladım açıkçası. Genel anlamda izlemesi keyifliydi.. Kitaptaki karakterleri canlı olarak izlemek değişik. Bu arada karakterler çok yerinde seçilmiş bence.
Very cool movie. Gives you the feeling of survival.
absolutely worth waiting for, absolute gorgeous acts by the members and great movie as well i really did enjoy it and probably not like other science fiction movies but not like the Interstellar by Mathew that movie is 20/10 but doesn't burn this movie no! this movie on the list!. :)
I really enjoyed this movie but too little things went wrong for him, he was way too in control of several situations... not like that's a bad thing
The move was very lengthy but not that boring. Good story, nice setup but never achieved to thrive and not a top 250 material
I really enjoyed this movie. It wasn't the best movie of the year but overall amusing. Matt Damon carried this movie mostly with his performance and the humor his character brought to the plot. Without the humor and all the disco music it would've probably been a boring movie but all together it was really nice. Lovely cast too.
Really enjoyed the movie, but it almost felt like an Apollo 13 remake. Still very entertaining, with laughs and some feels. I gave it 8 on the heart-o-meter.
A good one-watch movie. Funny, lots of science porn, lots of seat edge. I especially liked Donald Glover's character, although he didn't get enough screen time. Sure, some of it is a bit unrealistic, but overall it's worlds ahead of Interstellar on that front - nothing supernatural happens because it doesn't need to! Damon does a great job - it's easy to put yourself in his shoes (boots?).
