The Martian is a fiction 2015 movie starring Matt Damon similar to the 2011 novel The Martian by Andy Weir. It is directed by Ridley Scott. The Martian revolves around an astronaut who fights for his life on mars after misguidedly left for the dead. Other cast crew includes: Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan and Chiwetel Ejofor just to mention a few.
Every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. This is the punch line that The Martin borrows from. A storm has been detected on mars as a result, the crew aborts the mission. They evacuate the planet but in the process, the astronaut is forgotten. Reports indicate that he was killed. However this is not the case as the astronaut survives by using science to get food where nothing grows lasting him fifty days. It takes four years before he can reach his native planet.
The Martian depicts a series of flowing events similar to those in the novel. The major lesson here is drawn from the phrase; survival for the fittest. The captivating scenes are worth a life time. In one instance, the astronaut never stops trying to make it home even when he acknowledges that it would take another four years to return home. This scene is rather breathtaking. The crew becomes nostalgic after discovering the astronaut’s existence. The horrifying moment however is where the rocket is shaken and fire explodes throwing the astronaut behind.
Unsurpassed visual effects make the film worth watching. Photography used here especially in shooting scenes that are rather dangerous for example where the rocket plunges into the earth make the movie award winning. This story of bravery and patience has been captured well by Director Scott. The film is immense.
It feels good to be home.
The Martian used clear visual effects as a result; it was nominated for the best adapted screen play. One of the spectacular scenes is where dust tornadoes invade mars causing skirmishes hence the crew flees.
