THE MARTIAN is a science fiction drama about an astronaut who is stranded on Mars. This is the audio descriptive version of the film.

Language

There are three clearly spoken uses of strong language ('f**k'), one of which forms part of the audio description, and further mouthed uses. There are also obscured written uses of strong language, with asterisks replacing some of the letters, and references to the 'f-word'. Other bad language includes uses of 'Christ', 'Jesus', 'hell', 'damn, 'goddamn', 'shit', 'asshole' and 'dick-punch'.

Injury detail

In the aftermath of a catastrophic accident, a character regains consciousness and finds a metal spike has pierced his abdomen. There is some blood around the entry point and blood is also seen when he performs surgery on himself. The bloody images are brief and the focus is on the character's calmness and resourcefulness.

There are also sequences of tension as the astronaut tries to deal with his predicament in a hostile environment and in the daring attempts to rescue him.
