The Martian was an excellent movie with suspense and epic dramatic effects. I loved it and it brought an awesome feeling into the theater. The story was well brought across and had lots of action. It was one of the best movies of the summer.

It is a good movie, but it might not be for everyone. It’s rated PG-13 and uses some intense language. Other than that, the movie is pretty clean. It came out Oct. 2 and according to Wikipedia, it has grossed $384.7 million worldwide.

The Martian is about an astronaut who was on Mars and he got stranded after an accident. He is alone on the planet and needs to survive. It starts off right on Mars and flip-flops to earth and back to mars constantly. The point of view from NASA is really cool. They’re the brains of what’s happening to Mark, (the astronaut). It was actually based on a book by Andy Weir. It only came out in 2011 and it’s already a movie. Ridley Scott is the director and he did a really good job. It was an awesome movie with a really interesting plot and I recommend that you all see it. It is still in theaters, but not for long, so see it while you can.
