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.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 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.

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.

First and foremost, the special effects and stage sets are pretty amazing in this. Amazing what 3D CGI rendering programs are capable of making and simulating nowadays. BUT, it does get lost quickly in the format and pace of this film. It plays out in a total video perspective, ala Blair Witch Project or Cloverfield et al. It somewhat creates the tension to begin with, but I found it very tiring And the continuity of where the movie starts, recounting how it got to that point, and what happens from there was a bit drawn out. And some useless plot insertions of crew members mental state and possible conflict to the mission. Yet thankfully the ending isn't overwrought with too much heroism or grotesque discoveries to what's happened to lost crew members along the way. Valiance in the face of doom, and the appreciation and food for thought what astronauts and space missions are dedicated to. And the sensation of historical exploration is commendable in this film. Brace yourself for the unknown. Just don't get TOO excited for thrills and chills in this one.

Format: Blu-ray
A mission to Europa goes awry. However scraps of video are recovered. The mission center recombines the scraps and extrapolates the results.

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.
