Seeing that the movie was over 2 hrs long, and knowing that the person was going to be stuck on the planet by their self for the majority, I didn't have high hopes for it. Usually these types of movies are boring. Not a lot of writers can pull this off. This movie was really good tho. A group of us watched it and really enjoyed. There were some things they failed to explain, that we collectively came up with our own answer for. Other than that, it was great. I never felt bored or left waiting for more. Overall, I feel it was very well written, produced and acted. Well worth the watching. Some people on here have griped that it was 'predictable', but then, most movies are. Who ever watched Star Wars with the thought that Vader would ultimately win??? Who ever watched Star Trek thinking that Kirk wouldn't find a way to save the day? And frankly, who grew up watching Scooby Doo thinking that someone would actually kill Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne or Velma???

Mark Watney: Well, you will be happy to hear that in Grid Section 14-28, the particles were predominately coarse but in 29, they're much finer and they...


Goofs

The Hab's (apparently) only communication antenna that can contact Earth is torn away and likely destroyed in the storm, and anything on the MAV is gone, so Mark is left without any means of communication, until he gets the lander. The MDV is stated to have at least 3 communication devices that can contact the ship in orbit, so it would also be able to contact the satellites in orbit, which contact Earth. The MDV is sure to be able to contact Earth directly, as well as both the working and broken rovers, and the Hab would have had more than one system. Out of all of those other things that would certainly have been able to "phone home".
