I admit I really didn't think I would like this movie. Both the book and the movie sounded interesting but this isn't usually the kind of movie I usually watch .
I don't know if it is true to the book because I have not read it but I loved this movie. It is very well done and it kept me entertained until the very end. Parts were funny and parts kept me at the edge of my seat.
I highly recommend this movie.
I give The Martian 4 1/5 out of 5 stars.
