I just watched this film in 3D.
I must say it was the greatest 3D movie I have ever watched, not that I have watched many, but my husband, who has seen plenty, agreed with me.
Classic Hollywood drama/adventure/sci-fi, this film thrilled me to bits. Matt Damon played a remarkable character, a botanist left on Mars, believed dead. He has to provide food for himself in order to survive until the next mission arrives on Mars. How will he grow food on a dead planet? How will he contact those who left him?
It was original, detailing one man’s struggle to survive on an inhibitable planet.
It didn’t reek completely of that well-known, shameless Hollywood ‘cheesiness’ you always find in stories of man’s triumph over nature.
The force of nature and space represented in this movie was mind blowing. It was explosive and phenomenal and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. It was longer than two hours but it certainly didn’t feel that way to me. I was captivated.
If you enjoyed Gravity, you will definitely enjoy this film. Both stories run on more or less the same pattern, but they are also both hugely different.
The Martian was incredible. Go watch it. Now I’m off to bed because my eyeballs are burning.
