The Martian - Lost In New World

The Martian is another science fiction movie from Ridley Scott based on Andy Weir's novel. It's a movie about a NASA's manned mission to mars called the Ares III which was hit by an intense storm in Mars where one of the astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is lost and presumed dead. To save lives of her crew, mission commander Melissa Lewis (Jessica Chastain) decides to leave Watney behind. Mark wakes in Mars and realises that he is stuck in planet with limited supply of food and can't make any contacts with Earth. He uses his botanical skills to cultivate potatoes in Mars and somehow managed to contact NASA to tell the world he is alive. NASA prepares to rescue knowing that any next manned mission is three years away and work on tight schedule to send help way ahead before Mark runs out of his ration.

The movie has well crafted screenplay to keep you on the edge and Ridley Scott's direction is perfect in each frame. The special effect will make you believe that you are experiencing planet Mars in real sense. The best thing about movie is Matt Damon's performance about his survival and not to miss his great sense of humor.

Must Go For It.
