“The Martian”Movie Review
RidleyScott`s film "The Martian" about the survival of anastronaut on an almost inhabitable and desolate planet is no doubt ashipwrecking story, which happens to assume the form of anadventurous science fiction. But although the movie`s outline offersno form of surprises, the tone and details feel new. "TheMartian" is about a man – Matt Damon – acting as MarkWatney, and in spite of adversity, he summons every courage andingenuity to overcome what appears an almost impossible solution, andto top it all, has to struggle with loneliness. Mark Watney is leftfor dead in this dissected planet – Mars – following whatappeared like a scientific anomaly. The motive behind the movie, "TheMartian," is to determine chances of survival in the planet.Watney faces the struggle of "not dying." The paper,therefore, is a movie review, a comparison review with another moviefrom the same actor, and reasons as to why it is worth watching.
In comparison to another of Matt Damon`s 2014 film,"Interstellar,"The Martian" works its view overwithout a single hint of a dystopian doom over its bracing 2 hours.The motive behind this movie is to develop a suspenseful tale ofsurvival across its entirety, exhibiting smartness to the core, andwithout notice, slaps its viewers with a smile on their faces at theend of it. The motive behind this exhilarating movie is based onhuman ingenuity. Here, this motive is characterized by Watney, whouses the complexities of science to innovate and solve dire problemswith risky and creative solutions. The cruel indifference of thenatural world exhibited by the film features no single human being ofselfish motive and with no toothy leaping outside the crater. Themoral of the arguments in the film between two NASA monks arederivations of one method pointing towards each other.
The same way as the film, "Interstellar,” is regarded, "TheMartian," puts on the space boots and takes its audience intowhat appears as cosmos. However, "The Martian," does notaim to appear ambitious and flashy as the "Interstellar"was. For instance, Ridley Scott succeeded in drawing the viewers`exhilaration, lessons, and ecstasy. The director had one purpose, ifnot many, while directing this film. The "Interstellar,"rather than "The Martian," leaves its viewers with a senseof ecstasy. The "Interstellar" is purposed with awell-crafty sense of intricacy, which is embedded in athought-provoking science and actual controversial argumentativedecisions that the viewer is left with pertaining space. What thedirector aimed at is to shade light on the futuristic science humanapplications to ponder on, and is yet to be developed.
Both films "The Martian" and "Interstellar" drawrelevance about the historical explosions that happened in space.What appears to be a fictitious scene in the film "The Martian"serves as a brilliant re-ignition of an actual concern emphasized inspace about launching the spaceship in "Interstellar."Launching rockets are a risk affair, and for the success of rocketscience, proper certifications have to be met. In the film, "TheMartian," the purpose is to show the reality of the abovescenario. For instance, the decision to return the fight`s weight andthrust certifications led to excessive vibration and thus theexplosion of the rocket into pieces.
"The Martian," and "Interstellar," both revolveMark Watney (Matt Damon) the astronaut, and is based on some of theinnovative applications of science that are yet to be developed, butwere applied. There were scenes in both the movies that were onlybased on the scientific imaginations. For example, one of the scenesin "Interstellar" involving the spaceship operated at zerogravity, and from a few inches away, the fitness stood at fullgravity. This kind of scenario in the form of an innovative spacescene is not in existence in real life. Additionally, that kind ofsituation in the film "Interstellar," however, fail toexist in the film "The Martian" as opposed to the film dueto the gravitational manipulation not fully mastered on the humanbody.
The movie, "The Martian," is worth watching since itattracts the kind of audience(s) with an interest in science fictionand what revolves around it. Scott Ridley applies accuracy in thoughtapplication of science, which attracts the right audience(s) from itsfascination. The kind of audience(s) attracted to such film is youngand adventurous. The setting of the movie is characterized by largeLED screens mounted in every corner of the rocket. This kind of asetting only resonates well with science fiction enthusiasts. Forinstance, the movie is appreciated by the fact that the heroesfeatured as scientists that were calculated behind the camera.
Secondly, the film is a combination of 1970s disco hits, while themain actor, Matt Damon, is engaged in a solo showmanship. Regardingits visuals, the film is known for its stunning and immersiveimpressions, which ensures the directors conjure up without cynicism.The film also offers its audience a welcome burst characterized withflag-waving patriotism, which never feels like cloying. Additionally,the visual spectacle is that a visually stunning 3D, which promisesto transport its audience to another planet, preferably Mars, andeventually leaves an undeniable, indelible impact.
Mark Watney (Matt Damon), the main actor succeeds in delivering thekind of performance, which is replete with mischief and unforcedcharm. He comes out as a cool astronaut to be admired, more so withhis witty and thoughtful out-liners which leaves the audience insplits. His character and persona are evidenced in the film is thatof a character, a hardened character of an astronaut in space, andhas spent approximately 400 days on a rationed and limited diet toreturn, which makes him more intriguing.
Again, the film is worth watching because it is not just anotherscience fiction film on the red planet, but is a movie that the ISROand NASA scientists are part of. These scientists that had initiallyconducted a number of research studies on Mars have ended up givingthe movie thumbs up. Again, the movie is an actual real science morethan simple a sci-fi. Acting as Mart Watney, Matt Damon acknowledgesin its trailer that he was going to sci-fi the film out of this,which means the film uses more of science research studies to solve anumber of problems, but at the same time is full of entertainment.Additionally, the film also boasts of technical wizardry with stellarperformances from the main character, Matt Damon, Kate Mara, andJessica Chastain.
"The Martian" has a sweep but not with the vanity thatcharacterizes many large film productions. Mark Watney helps inscaling the story down however, what makes the film epic personal isthe director`s quality in filmmaking, whereby every single aerialshot of the planet is provided with intimate face landscape. Thedirector, Scott Ridley, is his own artist, the one with knownreputation as a well-crafted visual stylist. The film, with all itspop science intrigues, its viewers will particularly be left withrenewed interest in astronomy, biology, and chemistry.
In conclusion, the director of the film, Scott Ridley, appeared tohave had a lot of fun with the film, "The Martian." Theecstasy the film creates revolves around its counter-intuitivesequences, interruption of flow, suspense, rhetoric situations, andcaptivating designs and persona. In its entirety, "The Martian"is a great film, which intricately intertwines real controversial andthought-provoking science fiction. Additionally, the film`sfuturistic science touch on humans is yet to develop.
