Bring Him Home

No not this Martian
Believe or not two years ago to the day, I posted my review of Gravity: a thrill ride movie.  The review for The Martain is a short one so I am just going to post a whole bunch of pictures.  The Martain is vastly superior to Gravity.

This review is spoiler free except for one thing, so let's get that out of the way first:
Sean Bean does not die in this movie.

The rest of the review goes like this:

The Martian is an extremely solid movie.  It is well-acted.  It has a tight plot.  It has strong characters.  It has plenty of very cool action that is not over the top nor do we ever get that feeling of "How much stuff can  go wrong?" in the sequences, which is so often the case of these movies.   It is worth it in 3d.  It is easy to watch.

If anything, The Martian reminds us that we need to go back to exploring space with more than probes.

It is, in fact, one of the best films I've seen in a while.

Go see it.
