Synopsis

During a fierce dust storm on the planet Mars, NASA astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is impaled by an antenna, which destroys his suit's bio-monitor computer. His crewmates presume he's dead and flee the planet, leaving him behind.

Mark's injuries turn out to be relatively minor, but he must now try to survive, with few supplies, on his own. He uses his skills as a botanist in order to grow food and make water, while trying to figure out how to get a signal to Earth in order to let someone - anyone - know he's still alive.

Based on the book by Andy Weir.

  • 4 stars "I thought it was an awesome movie! Matt was very genuine in the movie and as much as the movie is about his character you don't tend to get bored as you are routing for him to survive. Got lost in the technical jargon somewhat but I'm pretty positive I wouldn't survive on Mars without ketchup!"
