COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Good submitted by ECReader on June 20, 2016, 12:00pm I thought this movie was good. It was worth watching though there was some area for improvement. I would recommend reading the book before watching the movie.

Great space story submitted by LVDS on June 23, 2016, 2:56pm Quite creative & thrilling, worth a watch!

well done submitted by kencza on July 10, 2016, 8:55pm this was very enjoyable from the cast to the story and character development/
special effects and visuals were strong and I liked the soundtrack too

Much better than expected submitted by GJBarnett2 on July 20, 2016, 12:50am I had expected a "Space Opera." Couldn't have been more wrong! A complex story with good characters and character development, and unexpected plot twists. Highly recommended!

Great submitted by leenajong on July 20, 2016, 10:30am One of my favorites!

Very Good submitted by AprilCDB on July 27, 2016, 1:04pm Really enjoyed this movie and the problem solving to get him home from Mars

Learn to grow potatoes! submitted by gardenfaerie on June 24, 2017, 6:30pm Interesting and enjoyable story, but they really needed a gardening consultant because that is SO not how potatoes grow!!

excellent! submitted by smgop on June 30, 2017, 9:51am Riveting - well done.

Faithful Adaptation submitted by Meginator on July 21, 2017, 8:07pm As a huge fan of the book, I think that the film The Martian did a good job of capturing the characters, plot, and general spirit of the source material. Some of the humor necessarily becomes lost in translation, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much of the book's essence remains, especially for such a big-budget production. The film also stands alone as a gripping race against time with excellent acting, pacing, and direction. This is one of the better book-to-film adaptations I have seen.

Watch this first! submitted by Xris on July 6, 2018, 7:01pm I read the book first and then watched the movie and was sad that they took out some parts...one of the emergencies he has to deal with and a lot of the science/technical stuff to get himself where he needed to be. Otherwise, it was a great movie that followed the book pretty closely. :)

Ok submitted by Bigal2212 on August 22, 2018, 1:54pm Slow paced

Interesting submitted by lstorc on August 28, 2018, 7:10pm This was a little unrealistic but immensely fun! Considering are space interest in Mars at this time, this movie provided a speculative glimpse one of the worst case scenarios.
