Joe Morgenstern from the Wall Street Journal, gave it a perfect 100 score, saying: “What’s so fascinating about the film is that it truly turns on the solving of problems, and its chief solver, stuck on Mars, manages to be so funny, interesting and infallibly likable that you’re invested in his predicament at every moment.”

Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 91 score. He said: “Scott’s sci-fi adventure is the kind of film you leave the theater itching to tell your friends to see. Like Apollo 13 and Gravity, it turns science and problem solving into an edge-of-your-seat experience.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 90 grade, stating: “The Martian is a film that respects the geekiest among us, and that pays off all around.”

Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a great 90 grade, saying: “Perhaps most importantly, not only does the film stress the importance of using math and physics and botany and chemistry to solve problems, but it also makes a plot based on scientific inquiry and audacity just as exciting and even more unpredictable as the movies’ usual brand of problem-solving, the kind that involves punching everyone and then blowing everything up.”

Peter Debruge from Variety, gave it a 90 score. He stated: “An enthralling and rigorously realistic outer-space survival story.”
