Movie Review: You Can't Keep a Good Martian Down

  • Penelope Poulou

Ridley Scott's new movie "The Martian" isn't as faithful to Andy Weir's bestselling novel as it is to the science that underpins the book. The film manages to create a cinematic experience, though, and a riveting plot based on the idea that man can survive on Mars as long as he’s done the math. VOA's Penelope Poulou reports that while it might sound dry, Scott pulls it off with majesty.
