Matt Damon does a great job conveying the different dimensions of astronaut Mark Watney in “The Martian” (20th Century Fox), a character that is stranded alone on another planet with little hope of surviving.
I enjoyed his touch of sarcasm, his jokes and the way he takes us on the emotional ride of someone that’s determined to never give up.
A lot of amazing acting moments throughout the movie but one that sticks out is when he’s waiting for the Ares MAV IV to launch. We get to see so much emotion from his facial expression; one that shows hope, adrenaline and fear at the same time.
