The Martian (12a)

Director Ridley Scott. Adventure/Drama/Sci-Fi


Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien) directs Oscar-winner Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity) in this fantastically enjoyable sci-fi thriller with a star-studded cast including Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Damon is astronaut Mark Watney, presumed dead after a fierce storm on Mars. Alone on a hostile planet, he must use all his ingenuity to survive and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive – while, millions of miles away, NASA is working tirelessly to bring ‘the Martian’ home, and his crewmates plot an incredible rescue mission. Reminiscent of Gravity; it’s thrillingly filmed and epic in scale.

Starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kata Mara, Jeff Daniels, Donald Glover


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Best si-fi since 2001 or blade runner. Keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way. You feel you are watching real events.

Technically excellent film and enjoyed by all.

Exciting but overlong
