Format: DVD
From the director who brought us Trainspotting, this is an excellent sci-fi that combines the thoughtfulness of 2001 with some real sounding dialogue like we saw in Alien, all to the tune of an original premise. The concept is that the earth is frozen in the future, and a small group of scientists and astronauts are launched on a mission to re-ignite the sun, without having any idea what happened to the first team after they disappeared.

There are very human moments (a character walks into a room, stares at a second character until the second characters says "Is that your apology?" The first one replies "Yes," and they turn away from each other) and with all humanity hanging in the balance one simple decision that doesn't seem unreasonable begins a chain of events that makes the mission an increasingly desperate one. The end is a little surreal, and not paying close attention can allow you to miss some important information, but it's nothing that isn't in keeping with the tone and thoughtfulness of the film.

Like Blade Runner, this is one of those films that was fairly misunderstood on release (don't expect a disaster movie, an action film or aliens, this is somewhere between a drama and an art film), but I believe it will eventually gather a following and be considered a classic.

First off, the previous and first reviewer must be joking!

If anything, even the detractors of this film from many reviews admit that Sunshine boasts incredible visuals. It was indeed a "low-budget set," but that is a consequence of the film being based largely on the single ship, rather than bad design. The Icarus II's layout is functional, practical, convincing, and suitably claustrophobic. As to "vertigo," that would vary from viewer to viewer--Blair Witch this is not, a film that actually gets mentioned as nausea-inducing in reviews.

Rather than expecting a space opera, viewers must understand that this film is much more related to something like "Solaris" or "2001: A Space Odyssey." This means that human psychology and struggle is the crux of the plot, and it makes for quite a suspenseful and thought-provoking journey--the mood of the story is consistently tense, a fact and experience I cannot believe the previous reviewer did not notice.

While the science is not perfect, it is not completely unbelievable--any research into the film's creation reveals extensive collaboration and consultation with scientists. There is also an existing back story that is not given much treatment in the movie that better explains that the sun is not "dying," which we have already predicted as happening many billions of years from now. Actually, it's infected with a "Q-ball" particle--despite the funny name, it is something really under investigation in the real world, and in the movie, it interferes with the sun. The bomb sent towards the sun is not meant to reignite the star, rightly pointed out as impossible given the scope of the sun by the other review, but to destroy this Q-ball so the sun can resume its normal course.

The video did not work after about 10 minutes into it. The picture in picture display popped up and no amount of playing with the settings could get rid of it. What a waste of money

Don't know why this never got popular in North America. Danny Boyle doesn't even like sci-fi. He just makes great movies regardless of the subject matter. Blu-ray is the only way to see this.

A great film from an amazing director! and one of his lesser know and most under-rated films. A great cast. I love it.

For Scifi and horror fans this movie is great, it leaves you guessing and the end gets the job done
