We've all been asked the question, "What would you do if you were stuck on a deserted island?" Well, what would you do if you were stuck on a hostile planet 140 million miles from home? That's exactly the dilemma Matt Damon's character, astronaut Mark Watney, has to confront when he is left behind on Mars in his latest sci-fi suspense film "The Martian."
It's all very intense and unnerving to watch the problem-solving unfold, but the tension is alleviated by the film's well-paced use of humor - a disco-heavy soundtrack is just one way the mood is lightened and Watney learns to grow his own food... using human waste! The skillful combination of a well-written script, talented cast, out-of-this-world special effects and lighter moments make "The Martian" the kind of movie that will stick with you long after you've watched it.
