Mark stole the principal’s car to go see his parole officer about stealing cars, proving that he doesn’t care about the concept of wrong and right because he kept doing the same thing over and over (Hinton 73).
The Martian is a pretty intense movie in its own right. Stranded on Mars without a hope of rescue any time soon, Mark Watney is stuck and has to figure out how to survive. He is forced to face the constant possibility of equipment failure or sudden disaster, which he faces every now and then. That is why I think the main theme here is fear.

It doesn’t work all the time but considering the situation he is in, he’ll do just about anything.
