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.Read more ›
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.
We get to see the results and help speculate.
First there are no Gabor sisters, big red spiders, or any fun stuff; at least not at first and maybe never. I guess there is no time for a love story unless it was love of a new planet (moon.)
Second they must have taken photo lessons from the "The Blair Witch Project" (1999). Sprinkled with lots of flashback, sound bites and other unnecessary garbled video.
Of course even though it seem slow (the first 20 minutes are like watching paint dry) eventually you will watch it in hopes that it at least will be "Ten Little Indians" by Agatha Christie, in space. You will not be wasting your time whether you watch or not.

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. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Nostalgia Guy
