The Martian

Matt Damon     d/ Ridley Scott

Nice looking but hopelessly formulaic crowd-pleaser. While we were following the solitary actions of our hero the film was interesting. Once we got back to everybody else (crew, NASA) the movie sagged.

But not to worry. The third act played like an amped-up version of the Perils of Pauline...unfortunately reprising the style and tone of Gravity, heretofore the most overwrought film of the decade.

Everybody here was OK.  It was too long, used hollywood beats, was cliched, eventually became tedious. Pure product.
