"My sunshine my little sunshine... you make the world happy when the sky goes blue". As the sun begins to die, a team of astronauts are sent on a spaceship to try and revive it to save the future of mankind. This movie has a lot of nick picks that I can't really name them all, The acting is good and the CGI is okay.

Sunshine is one of the most spiritual modern films I have seen - a movie that embraces the beauty of the universe and deals with themes of responsibility and self-sacrifice. The ending itself is extremely satisfying, and the film manages to balance a philosophical tone with a genuinely thrilling plot of survival and intrigue.

A tense, exciting and very smart sci-fi adventure, with a unique story. The acting and directing are superb. It has all the best elements from some of my favorite sci-fi movies.

Danny Boyle's latest sees the crew of the Icarus 2 delivering a nuclear device to try and restart our dying sun. The concept is a kind of grown up (well, young adult) version of Armageddon, for the first hour it has a striking resemblance to 2010, and for the final third it shifts gear and becomes a spacebound slasher flick in a similar vein to Event Horizon. The cast is certainly above par for this kind of hokey sci-fi, but I couldn't shake the feeling I'd come in half way through; there is little build up, and the script spends all it's time manufacturing drama full of races against time giving the audience little time to get to know the characters. This makes it very difficult to care when they make their inevitable and noble self sacrifices. It has some very pretty imagery, but …

A film about Earth’s condition because of a dying Sun. The crews of Icarus II make valuable decisions that would either hamper their mission or save a few lives from Icarus I. Its features inside Icarus II are enough to keep the viewers entertained. The talented international cast brings the realism to this smart science fiction/drama/thriller of a picture. Cillian Murphy (the physicist Robert Capa) can really hold his own; Michelle Yeoh was delightful as Corazon (the biologist), Chris Evans as Mace (the engineer) and many more. Some minor blemishes come to mind like the character of Mark Strong, Pinbacker, who was burned due to numerous exposures to the Sun. Right from that point, the realism was gone. The abrupt ending didn’t work well for me either. So much emphasis was …

Hey just watched the movie there on telly and let me start by saying I am not a big fan of space movies especially ones set solely on a cold spaceship however sunshine managed to avoid all that I dislike about those movies an was completely entertaining!One of the things I liked about it was that it was realistic(well as realistic as a movie like this could be!)everyone on the ship was 100% for the missions success and they all knew they were expendable if needs be. I agree with the other reviews though,the horror bit at the end was unnecessary, and the film was doing fine without it, didnt ruin the film as the bad guy wasn't in it for too long but I think you can either go completely one way if your going to go horror and not half and half,didn't know or care about this bad guy he was …
