video review : The Martian

A potentially enthralling concept; an Earthling gets stranded alone on another planet; is ruined by hackneyed movie-making. Yes, director Ridley Scott is ultimately to blame for this Hollywood disaster. Okay, it’s not that bad, but it could’ve and should’ve been a lot better. The biggest problem is that in a story that relies on tension and suspense, there is little to none. Nasa astronaut Mark Watney is left for dead on Mars after a botched expedition, but, thanks to the plot’s lame humor, I never got the sense that he’s in any real danger. Even if I did, I wouldn’t care. His character is mostly irritating. I say we send all people like him to Mars and leave them there.
