WTF!!!! Cmon!!! Why does such a good movie have to turn into event horizon at the end!!!??? I know it's a movie but does nasa really send morons into space?? That consistently make catastrophic mistakes!?? Can't we have just one space movie with a mission so delicate and a crew that thinks like friggn astronauts and smart people and less like psychopaths. Idk. Im getting ahead of myself a little. But wtf!! I really enjoyed the majority of the movie until the crispy phsyco had to come into it.Fu lord blackwood!
Not horrible but not good either The movie started out pretty good although bereft of not notable actors. Decent premise and seemed to have been executed well. However, as another reviewer has started, it turns into some psycho killer movie about two thirds of the way through. Really unfortunate too, it could have kept going with the central theme and really been a great movie. Horrible cinematography as well during the psycho killer part.
2/3 excellent space drama, 1/3 thriller. I would have been happy with out the thrilling part. The cast of well-played, deep characters struggle with space, themselves, and each other in the beautifully shot confines of a space craft. The music is outstanding including drama, composed pieces combined with trendy music that brings it back down to the reality faced by the characters.
Pretentious and frighteningly overrated. I truthfully wanted to like this film. The concept was interesting and the production values were beautiful, with an incredibly impressive cast. Unfortunately the characters consistently made frustratingly scripted decisions, ignoring clear alternatives and performing actions that made no sense except to further plot, before quickly turning into a glorified remake of Event Horizon. The atheist vs. theist analogy was very heavy handed, but at the same time incredibly shallow. Extremely disappointing.
One of my favorites! (I pretend the last 10 minutes happened my way) Awesome movie. Like so many others, the ending is not so pleasing as the rest...actually it is, but it takes on something that, on its own might have not been so aggravating if that thing was left behind prior to the big escape to suicide...HOWEVER...The movie movie is among my favorites...all prior uniqueness points still GREATLY outweigh the dumb repeat-stowaway issue. What, did he gain superhuman powers or something? F-2-the-that! I'd rather see 5 minutes of Cappa boning his travel partner, or 2 minutes of people on earth being cold and scared that the Icarus II never made it. Except for that HUGE feat of ability by a clearly injured and scarred mad man, presented in the last 10 minutes...the rest of the movie is gold...even the events that include the mad man up until that point. THE SOUNDTRACK IS AWESOME!
Classic Sci-fi Reminiscent of 2001 and some of the great sci-fi films, Sunshine is beautiful, contemplative, and poetic. Extremely intense, amazing effects, great acting. The mix of science and religion is thought-provoking, and some scenes are truly enlightening. Cillian Murphy proves he is one of the most underrated actors working. This is good sci-fi that you don't see often.
Deep as well as relevant! Great movie. Lets all focus on the reality of intent. The whole thing with the "psycho killer" is symbolic, relating to the "we are not God" theory and thus not permitted to change a natural outcome. Nice juxtaposition of scientific ambition and religious morality. plus great cinematography made for an enlightening experience.
Despite a few hiccups, a solid movie The casting was superb; this was the perfect role for Cillian Murphy. While a few aspects of the story were a bit strange and didn't seem to fit, the ending made this movie one of my favorites. It will stick in your head. It remains to be one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Definitely worth a watch.
I was wrong about my first assessment of said movie. It's ok. I thought the movie had some magical star-man who was living on the sun cause that's the way all the trailers looked to me. He turns out too be some nutter who lost his mind and thinks he is talking the sun. Plus he has burned his frigging skin off for several years, and finely thinking he is some kind hero by killing all on earth.
A favorite I personally love this movie. The visuals are stunning, the concept is interesting, the characters develop, and the story is solid enough. The music is also great. If you want an artistic yet fun film to take you to space and back, this is an excellent option.
Surprisingly cold This movie is visually and soundtrack wise, one of my favourites. It is a unique combination of suspense, sci-fi, horror, and action. There is a bit to much of the smart people standing around with their mouths open, too dumb to react, so that is why I only gave it 4 stars. Otherwise it is an excellent movie.
Stunning visuals I thought the preview for this was awesome but I didn't expect it to go much further than that. Then I watched it. This is one movie in my collection that I LOVE introducing to people and watch their reaction to how cool this movie is.
Visually stunning, music blended seamlessly to the atmosphere. The whole movie felt "epic". Only giving it 4/5 stars due to some of the questionable decisions in the plot that I thought could have been handled with more fineness. But I have to say I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. If you haven't seen this I would go ahead and give it a try.
