After an emergency evacuation from Mars, one astronaut (Matt Damon) is left behind. He determines to stay alive by using science, ingenuity and pluck, while NASA strategizes on rescue plans. Unlike “Gravity” (which it will be inevitably compared to) this is more about science than suspense. Solutions are methodically discussed and tried with few setbacks. Despite this more intellectual approach, Damon’s performance is spirited, amusing and occasionally touching. Director Ridley Scott manages to make the moving parts and technical explanations acceptable, while mining a bit of emotion and even humor in the interactions. Overall, it’s a well-crafted and captivating tale of human survival.
