The curse of this movie is that it’s forever going to be referred to as Interstellar in a smaller scale. The similarities are hard to ignore. Where Interstellar takes you to three different planets in a different galaxy, Martian takes you to just one planet and that too one in our own solar system. While Interstellar takes human embryos to colonize other planets, Martian takes potatoes to make potato farms in Mars! And yeah, Matt Damon gets stranded in a planet in both the movies.
In spite of all these similarities, The Martian is a great movie in its own rights. For starters, it doesn’t have any of the sophisticated plot points like in Interstellar (that is, you don’t have to read through a “What-you-need-to-know-before-watching-this-movie”). Matt Damon excelled in his portrayal of the stranded astronaut and his fight for survival against all odds (thereby redeeming himself for his jerk of a role in Interstellar). The movie is sure to give you 140 minutes of solid entertainment.
The only thing that I did not like was its closing scenes. After a nerve-racking space rescue, the lecture at the NASA training academy felt oddly out of place and poorly scripted. Otherwise, I have no complaints and I would definitely recommend.
If you prefer adventure over melodrama, you've reached the right pixel.
