Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Terrific cast, strong story, decent ending. This is a solid film that hits all the right emotional notes and boasts a good performance by Matt Damon. The large supporting cast is pretty great too, with ample opportunities for many of the ensemble players to shine. I actually enjoyed the off-Mars moments a little more than the on-Mars moments.
Final Grade: B-
Thanks for reading!
