Description:Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is stranded on Mars when his crew has to do an emergency evacuation and think he's dead. He manages not only to survive, but to find a way to communicate with earth. Meanwhile. a scientist figures out a way to rescue him by having his crew now land on earth to be slingshot around the planet, then fly back to Mars to meet Mark in low orbit. (He's able to get to low orbit in a craft sent remotely to be used for the next mission.) Problems abound, but all obstacles are overcome and Mark returns safely to earth.

Reviews for The Martian

Review - Martian, The

The movie stuck pretty close to the book—with a few less accidents to overcome due to time constraints. Matt Damon does a good job in his role. There's a sprinkling of unnecessary profanity, but not nearly as much as there was in the book.
