The Martian Movie Review: The First Person to Live on Mars

Elon Musk is trying to find a way to start a civilization on Mars, but no one knows the ground truths of the planet. There is a movie that can give us a notion of what the atmosphere of Mars looks like, based on a bestseller novel written by Andy Weir and the ” The Martian” movie. It takes place on another planet, not just metaphorically but literally. It teaches us never to give up on our lives, even if there is no life. How a team of NASA astronauts unwillingly left their one companion on Mars without having any idea of it and how an astronaut survives on a different planet solely without making any connection with other humans and having only limited resources. This movie’s scientific accuracy is high, as novelist Andy Weir’s father was a particle physicist. It provides new information about the Red Planet.

The Storyline of the Martian

A crew of astronauts went to Mars for research purposes and was given the task of collecting all the samples from Mars so that humans could learn more about Mars. On the mission, a storm hit the planet, and the astronauts aborted the mission and went to their rocket, the Mars Ascent Vehicle, to leave the planet. In the USA, they held a press conference and told the media about the mission and that every astronaut is safe, but there was an unfortunate incident where a rock hit Mark Watney (Matt Damon), and he died on the planet Mars.

Then we see that Mark is alive on the planet, but an iron piece has a stick on his body, and he treats the wound by himself. They had made the hub bunks on the planet for their research purposes. Mark starts recording himself for the records that he is alive after that storm hits. Mark calculates that it will take NASA three years to rescue him, and he doesn’t have a food supply for three years Luckily, he is a botanist and tries to find a way to grow some vegetables on the planet Mars.

Mark realizes that he needs litres of water to make the soil farmable; he knows the formula for making water by adding hydrogen to oxygen, but the experimental trial is blown up by the fire and starts again. On the other hand, in the USA, Director of NASA Teddy Sanders (Jeff Daniels) gives a tribute to Mark Watney in public. NASA is still unaware that Mark is alive there. Director of the Mars Mission Vincent Kapoor (Chiwetel Ejiofor) tells the director to manipulate people and seek some sympathy from the public so they can get a budget for their next mission to Mars. Vincent Kapoor tells his assistant to find the cost of the equipment that has been left on Mars, and by doing this, his assistant finds that some equipment has been displaced and gets to know that Mark is still alive. Vincent Kapoor denied passing this information to Mark’s crew members.

Mark tried his best to survive this situation; he performed every task that he needed to do, no matter if it was injurious to his health or not. On the planet, the earth’s government tries their best to rescue Mark in time because his death due to malnutrition is inevitable. Vincent Kapoor tries everything to help Mark. The public demands government rescue, Mark. NASA is under a lot of pressure to find a solution to this problem, and Teddy Sanders’ position is on the line.

The Martian’s story is predictable; everyone knows that Mark Watney will survive on the planet no matter what circumstances he has to go through, but the movie doesn’t showcase that Mark Watney will survive; rather, it focuses more on how Mark will survive on the new planet without taking help, and every possible outcome is against him. We also see how the astronauts’ group feels after knowing that they have left Mark on the planet and what Mark makes of this situation; does he think that his group left him intentionally or was it an accident? In the true sense, this movie is a roller-coaster ride experience as you feel connected to the character and everything he does is in front of you.

This is undoubtedly one of the best movies that fall in the sci-fi genre, as the VFX and CGI are pretty apt and the scientific facts are also mostly correct. All the actors have done a marvellous job, and Matt Damon is the star of the show, as in almost every scene we see, Matt Damon is present on the screen. He also got an Oscar nomination for a leading role in this movie. The background music also makes you engage throughout and increases your curiosity. Overall, it’s worth watching the movie. You can watch it with your family and friends, and if you feel low, it will work as a motivational speaker as the lesson of the movie is very strong.
