The Martian Movie Review

The Martian is one of the best adventures that you will go on this year. It is a dazzling science-fiction film that packs an emotional punch. I sat among the people in the theater in awe of what was unfolding on screen. I laughed, I cried, and I laughed again. Simply put, this picture is a great time at the theater. I know, I’m just as surprised at that statement as you are. I recommended you see this beautiful movie on the biggest screen in town, as soon as possible. Because the visuals your eyes will fall upon are breathtaking.
