Movie Review: The Martian
Back in July I read the Andy Weir's book The Martian and posted a positive review of that here.
I went and saw the movie today and thought a follow up was warranted.
Ridley Scott has doen a great job with the film adaptation and stayed very true to the book. At 2hr 22 min he had to cut a few of the challenges that Astronaut Mark Watney faces on the Red Planet, and he added a few scenes at the end which overall I think gave a better sense of closure to the story.
With only one exception, I thought the casting was very good and the characters. Sean Bean doesn't even die in this movie, which makes a change for him.
Overall, a very good movie. Read the book first and its even better.
