Funny, enjoyable and worth seeing!

Mark Watney is an astronaut who is presumed dead and left behind on the planet Mars after a NASA expedition gone wrong. Now he needs to fights to survive the situation...

First let me tell you this film is surprisingly funny! I tought it would be more typical survival and rescue adventure but it wasn't! Yey! It's straightforward without drama and love stories that we all came to despise. The story is good, nice visuals, details, also good script but at times I wished they would move a pace a little. Matt and the whole cast did a great job and the movie has a few thrilling moments. And I loved the geekyness and cheeky sequences. But the problem is that the film is good but it never quite rises from good to fantastic. Do you know what I mean? There is no real emotional engagement. Nevertheless like I said - funny and enjoyable to watch. And this time I don't think 3D is necessary. 4/5
