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 …
