The Martian is a major return to form for Scott, who seems inspired by NASA's can-do spirit.

Watney may be taking a bunch of giant steps for mankind, but The Martian merely tiptoes around other great films that take on a similar topic.

The Martian consumes audiences from start to finish. Damon's witty performance makes the film both fun and intense while Scott's balance of Mars, Earth, emotion, politics, science and humor is an impressive and enthralling feat.

"The Martian" is this decade's "Cast Away," but if "Cast Away" took place in a world that was constantly plugged in and online.

The Martian is that rare film that both thrills and inspires, so much so that i'm sure it will be seen repeatedly at the theater and at home for years to come.

I can't see fans of the book (myself included) being remotely disappointed and imagine newcomers will be equally as enamoured.

While Gravity was a mediation on the choice to survive, The Martian is a celebration of our ability to survive no matter what, even when we should very much be dead.

Scott manages to take potentially dry scientific ideas and turns it into thrilling cinematic gold.

The Martian is the unique kind of blockbuster that you can marvel at in awe while still maintaining an emotional connection. It truly does have it all.

The Martian is a stunning return to form for Ridley Scott and a great film in its own right.

The Martian is a film that is driven and well-rounded family entertainment that is sure to please everyone and maybe make them want to go pick up a science book.

The Martian is ultimately a love letter to the spirit that saw humanity reach for the stars in the first place. When it's channelling that spirit via Damon and witty writing it lifts off, but then can't quite sustain its trajectory.

Definitely my favorite live action film of the year.

The Martian won't please those expecting a dark, terrorizing thrill ride where the heroes are in constant peril, but it'll make the rest of us laugh and cheer, which is something sci-fi blockbusters don't do enough these days.

Ridley Scott returns to demonstrate that he is a great science fiction storyteller. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 25, 2019
A hugely entertaining movie about the scientific ingenuity of man while coping with the age-old dangers of abandonment and isolation. Despite coming in at 144 minutes it doesn't feel long at all (or maybe I'm just still on Mars time).

The Martian is a crowdpleaser, hopefully one that may inspire the next generation of space explorations.
January 18, 2019
It's breezy and fun, and director Ridley Scott makes the most of his talented cast.

The Martian is that rarest of aliens - a movie that is a heartfelt celebration of what science can accomplish, wrapped in purest entertainment.
November 10, 2018
Hopefully, The Martian is not dismissed as a foreign alien in the minds of ardent movie-going SF enthusiasts looking for a realistic and soulful space-age adventure with a refreshing backbone of scientific curiosity and candidness.
