Movie synopsis
Danny Boyle has excelled in nearly every genre he's touched from the family film (MILLIONS) to the zombie movie (28 DAYS LATER) to the drug-fuelled drama (TRAINSPOTTING). With SUNSHINE, he brings his style and verve to the futuristic world of science fiction to great success. In a mere five decades in the future, the sun is dying, and Earth is running out of time. After the failure of a previous mission, it's up to the crew of the Icarus II to reignite the star with a stellar bomb. But the crew faces more than just the blistering heat of the sun and the freezing cold of space as they grapple with the limits of the human mind and heart.As in Boyle's previous work, the visuals in SUNSHINE are stunning. It's a beautifully shot film filled with contrasts, juxtaposing light and dark, sound and silence, and life and death. SUNSHINE resides in the respected realm of smart science fiction films such as 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and SOLARIS. Alex Garland's fine script never dwells on the specifics of the technology, but instead spends its time on the characters. For these roles, Boyle has assembled an excellent cast that includes Cillian Murphy, Chris Evans, Michelle Yeoh, and Cliff Curtis. Like the classic 2001, SUNSHINE's appeal extends beyond its genre. Though it's packed with special effects and heart-stopping action, it's an intelligent film that should be enjoyed by everyone who loves movies, not just those who like science fiction.

Editorial reviews

4 stars out of 5 -- "[E]legance permeates nearly every frame, Boyle's honed craft seeping like morning rays through a Venetian blind. The production design is exquisite."
Total Film - Jonathan Dean (05/01/2007)

"Boyle and ace DoP Alwin Kuchler exploit elemental contrasts of darkness and light, heat and cold, with the CGI and model work beautiful but mostly unobtrusive..."
Sight and Sound - Henry K. Miller (04/01/2007)

"Boyle and his team ground the story in details chosen for their sophisticated, underplayed authenticity." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (07/27/2007)

"[A] spooky and spookily beautiful science-fiction thriller..."
New York Times - Manohla Dargis (07/20/2007)

5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] film that will leave you wide-eyed, heart racing, on the very edge of your seat."
Ultimate DVD - Nikki Baughan (08/01/2007)

4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] entertaining sci-fi thriller....It's intense, paranoid and bathed in golden glows..."
Uncut - Chris Roberts (10/01/2007)

3 stars out of 4 -- "Overall, a surprisingly meditative sci-fi epic."
Rolling Stone - Peter Kenis (02/07/2008)

A Very Hot & Clever Space Thriller with Cult Following!

Review For: Sunshine (Blu-ray Disc, 2008)

These types of movies just don't come around every day. You usually have to wait a while before you find a sci-fi film that you just really click with.

Directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days Later & Transpotting) and written by Alex Garland, Sunshine makes a groundbreaking smash on the sci-fi film community Winning the 2007 British Independent Film Award's Best Technical Achievement award (Mark Tildesley for Production Design.

Sunshine's tag-line for the movie is: "IF THE SUN DIES, SO DO WE." Cillian Murphy who plays Capa in the film was also nominated as Best Actor for this film.

Capa narrates these lines at the beginning in order to save us the time of a long drawn out explanation so the movie actually starts where it should have.
"Our sun is dying. Mankind faces extinction. Seven years ago the Icarus project sent a mission to restart the sun but that mission was lost before it reached the star. Sixteen months ago, I, Robert Capa, and a crew of seven left earth frozen in a solar winter. Our payload a stellar bomb with a mass equivalent to Manhattan Island. Our purpose to create a star within a star.
[long pause]
Capa: Eight astronauts strapped to the back of a bomb. My bomb. Welcome to the Icarus Two."

Director Boyle proves his uncanny ability and insight into the human psyche as he pairs off interactions with crew member characters flying a solar bomb directly into the sun.

I give this a 5/5 because it usually gets better the second or third time you see it since it seems very fast paced and thrilling.

Uncompromising sci fi film

I saw this film in the theatre twice and loved it. This movie is more for the real science fiction fan than the casual fan- someone who would enjoy 'Solaris' or 'Silent Running' much more than 'Aliens vs Predator' or 'Starship Troopers.' The plot revolves around a small group of astronauts piloting a giant spaceship (Icarus II) that must deliver an immense nuclear bomb to the heart of the sun. Far in the future our son is dying. While in transit with their powerful payload they encounter many problems, including tensions with each other. That the previous mission (Icarus I)vanished mysteriously only adds more tension as the crew contemplates that they are on a one way journey. Their loved ones and all of mankind are counting on them.

The special effects are superb. The sets, futuristic yet spartan, are very convincing. The giant ship with it's thousands of polished mirrors to shield it from the sun is a special effects marvel. Director Danny Boyle (28 days later) has crafted a truly enjoyable science fiction tale. This DVD features deleted scenes and an alternate ending. In the theatrical release the ending is the only part that dissapoints as the director goes for an ending more in line with what AVP fans would like. My suggestion check out the alternate ending. The movie is highly crafted and a great addition to your science fiction collection.

The Sci-Fi we've been waiting for! Think Alien - 2001

Review For: Sunshine (Blu-ray Disc, 2008)

The sci-fi genre is what it's all about for me and unfortunately in recent years the genre has been lacking in the "good" department, far from the 1980's glory days at least. But in 2007 we got a tasty revival in the form of Sunshine and the future is far from bleak with upcomming movies like James Camerons anticipated Avatar, and there's others I can't think of right now. Sunshine is a visual masterpiece, The graphics are stunning, I was really impressed. Especially looking at I am legend's cool $150 million budget compared to $20 million on this movie and the visuals are so much better. The story is thrilling and your in for a ride if you see it. They threw in aspects from alien and 2001 such as the classic spaceship adventure element which i love. It has a pretty good cast many Danny Boyle actors like 28 days later Cillian Murphy, 28 weeks later Rose Byrne and such. I have been waiting a very long time for a movie like this. Overall, Sunshine is an exciting, heart pounding movie and i would go as far to call it "great" but don't get me wrong it's not the best. There's some small things you might not catch the first time around but nothing crucial. But if you want to watch a fun and exciting film, watch Sunshine.

Sunshine (the movie)

Well, this is my first review; and it may in fact be my only review. That should tell you something right off the bat... that good or bad, I feel very strongly about this movie. I feel very strongly in the positive direction, though.
This movie is for lovers of 'hard sci-fi' such as 2001, Silent Running, etc. By hard science, I mean sci-fi that is at least partially rooted in reality, and what is thought to be possible. As opposed to movies like Star Wars, Star Trek, etc. which are more vague in their explanations and the physics involved. Don't get me wrong, I love these movies as well, just for entirely different reasons.
A large part of what I loved about Sunshine was the soundtrack. Sunshine (Adagio in D minor) nearly brought me to tears while watching the movie, and it still evokes a very strong emotional reaction every time I hear it. How often does that happen? Very few songs have this effect upon me.
Another thing this movie has going for it are the first rate special effects. While special effects don't make the movie, they are something very special in and of them self.
If you are looking for a movie that is fast paced all the way through, this is probably not the movie for you, though it does have it's moments. 2001 and 2010 were not the most 'action packed' movies, but they were epic. If you liked these movies, you are going to love this movie. If the names Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov mean anything to you, you need to watch this movie; you won't regret it, trust me.
