I'd give it 6/10.
It's worth seeing in the theater; nice special effects. A little...scratch that, very formulaic with your typical reluctant hero dialogue. The main woman actress (Lynn Collins) is a fox. I spent most of my time focusing on her.
I just caught this in IMAX last night and I would agree with pretty much all of this. Good theater movie, very little down-time, but that also meant that there was not as much story development as they probably could have done. I liked how they did his first few moments in Mars.
Good mindless entertainment.
