Movie Review: The Martian (’15 Ridley Scott)

Jessica Chastain. Jeff Daniels. Kristen Wiig. Kate Mara. Name them all supporting cast, they were all fantastic. But it was Matt Damon who flagship a film even without overpowering his co-actors. He IS brilliant. I was rooting for him. I cried. I got nervous. Felt hopeful. I symphatized and got even worried for him. Yup, Matt Damon made me feel those kinds of emotions. His portrayal of Mark Watney is nothing but all sorts of amazeballs! It was layered, riveting and strong. The Martian is an exquisite, thrilling and solid piece of art. The writing was impeccable. The premise is simple yet profound. And how the film was crafted had the right mix and amount of humor, spectacular visual effects and solid script. 8.5
