||During an expedition to Mars a storm causes the explorers to depart, leaving one member of the party who they think is dead. But he has survived and must work out how to continue to survive while NASA tried to work out how to rescue him.
||This is family viewing by today’s standards, although there are some distressing moments of drama.
||I admit to being a Ridley Scott and Matt Damon fan, and so this film ticked the boxes for me. Some aspects of the film are the best depictions of being in space ever, in my view.
