It was pretty good. Realistic and suspenseful. A good pace too.

'Europa Report' is a found-footage thriller that incorporates the same faux documentary elements of last year's 'The Bay'. As with that film, 'Europa' strives for believability in it's situations. The science and astronaut characters do attain that level of plausibility, but that achievement is brought down slightly with tame thrills and a lackluster finale.

An Immersive Sci-Fi Experience

If you are looking for a great film from a technical point of view, you will be hard pressed to find a better example than Europa Report. The film surrounds a group of astronauts sent to Jupiter's icy moon of Europa when evidence of life is found beneath the surface. From launching the mission to its heart-pounding conclusion, the portrayal of an actual space mission is spot on. You feel the isolation and danger of being on such a mission.

The film uses a variety of techniques - from cameras on the ship to hand-held cameras from the crew to depict life on a space station.

Europa Report

Europa Report is a film that has left me completely divided. On a technical level it's a masterpiece. The editing is brilliant, with multiple shots filling the screen at times, inter-cut with talking heads, and a live 'breaking news' style press conference of the Europa mission. What's really great, though, are the awesome visual effects which are nearly photo realistic at times. You really do feel the isolation of space, and the surrounding planets and planet surfaces, as well as the Europa shuttle, are all authentically realized on such a small budget. So when it comes to strictly film making terms, Europa Report is something of a fascinating exercise. Unfortunately, the actual story being told doesn't hold up. Not much really takes place, and the initial intrigue soon begins ...
