  • 4 stars "It came about the same time as The Martian and never saw the light outside of Matt Damon's shadow. Watching one man's isolated voyage to the Red Planet puts into perspective exactly what it would be like to be truly alone. It was slow paced, but why wouldn't be? Good movie, worth watching."
