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)

Our post-film voting system varied from Excellent to Poor with the majority indicating "Good". Not high-tech enough for real Sci-Fi enthusiasts and overly so for non-scientists! Flagged a bit in the middle and could have been 20 mins shorter but something a bit different, drew in several young people (rare!) and overall enjoyable.

Exciting but overlong

Great film, but speech quite muffled due to them wearing helmets, several people not hearing the dialogue too well. Cinematography amazing, film long but kept everyone engrossed.
