They just don't make many realistic hard science fiction movies these days - not without some kind of monster or alien virus running amuck or a secret agent embedded into the crew intent on sabotaging the mission, but Europa Report gets high marks for its focus on the science of a deep space mission. Yes, there are a few inaccuracies along the way (such as the fact the crew is able to converse with Mission Control with no time lag from the vicinity of Jupiter), but the special effects and attention to detail are really impressive given the fact that is an indie film (NASA reportedly assisted in the project development). There is also a refreshing absence of space opera to the storyline; heck, there's not even a romantic subplot to be found among this crew of men and women. No one breaks down emotionally or descends into madness, either, when serious problems arise. The entire crew works together to fulfill the mission, embodying the words of one of the crew members: "Compared to the breadth of knowledge yet to be known . . . what does your life actually matter?"

For those unfamiliar with Europa, it is the smallest of the four Jovian satellites first discovered by Galileo - and the sixth largest moon in the Solar System. One can easily make the case that it is also the most fascinating orbital body in the Solar System: its atmosphere contains oxygen, its surface is covered in ice, and many scientists believe that a water ocean is to be found below the surface. Such an internally heated ocean holds out the prospect that some type of life - most likely unicellular - exists on Europa. After we put men on Mars, Europa is the next place we should be sending our astronauts.

I thought this movie provided what seemed to be a pretty realistic idea of what deep space travel would be like. A very neat idea and a cool, if slightly obvious ending. In my opinion one of the better scyfy movies I've seen.

By THE MOVIE GUY TOP 50 REVIEWER on March 1 2015
Format: Blu-ray
The film immediately reminds one of "2001: A Space Odyssey." A crew of people head out to one of Jupiter's moon to search for life and communications is lost giving a new meaning to the phrase "The Jupiter Effect." Like "2001" the film doesn't spend a lot of time building character, but admittedly this production does a better job, but then what film didn't. In "2001" the sell was special effects. The crew of this feature are the best no accent English speaking white/Asian scientists and engineers from around the globe.

Science fiction wise, the movie addresses some of the issues of a Europa mission such as the deadly radiation that comes from Jupiter. Radiation destroys cell structure making the existence of large complex organisms questionable. People are sent to Europa because an "unmanned probe wasn't going to do it." Personally I would have sent maybe one or two just to be sure.

The movie utilizes camera logs and installed video cameras on board to give the film a modern hand held low budget "Paranormal" feel to it. Indeed, like so many films in this genre, one must wait for nearly the last scene to see a glimpse of "it." For me the introduction of multiple installed cameras as a substitute for a film cheapened the production.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

A very interesting film. The arch of the story isn't particularly original, but the ending is refreshing in that it avoids the typical evil alien scenario. I won't tell you exactly what it reveals, but those who like the science in their science fiction will probably appreciate the ending.
