A Dark Film With a Very Bright Title
Well it is with a great deal of advanced research that I went into Sunshine and even still didn’t feel fully prepared for the material within.  I suppose a part of this had to do with director Danny Boyle’s (past credits include 28 Days Later & The Beach) unique approach of blending hard science fiction with horror.  But before I get ahead of myself here, let’s take a moment to discuss the hard facts. Sunshine is a 2007 British science fiction film directed by Danny …

Sunshine is the latest sci-fi movie based on a doomsday scenario. Except here, the doomsday is actually a state of minimal sunshine, and hence eternal winter on Earth.

Pros: Visually stunning, a special effects masterpiece.     Cons: Lack of character development.     The Bottom Line: For the most part I found Sunshine entertaining.       Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. I like Science Fiction; especially those stories set in cold reaches of outer space.  There is something about outer space that holds an endless fascination for me.  So when …

Brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle, SUNSHINE is a visually stunning science fiction suspense film. In the future, the Sun has been infected with a "Q Ball" and is not working the way it should. A ship, named Icarus I, with a bomb as dense as Manhattan, is sent to the sun and blow up the "Q Ball". The ship never arrives and almost two decades later another ship, Icarus II, is sent to complete the job. It is Earth's last hope--should they fail all life on Earth will completely freeze and die.     …

`Sunshine' fills me with ambivalence. Even though more of a fantasy than science fiction, the film is launched with originality: A group of young astronauts are sent close to the sun fifty years from now to reenergize its fading zenith. The plot is as basic as it gets. The movie is episodic, filled with disasters and treachery with only a little time to pause and reflect.     Bright Spots:    1.) There's a lot to look at with some great shots of the sun.   &nbs …
