Sunshine

Sunshine (2007) is a science fiction thriller set in the not so distant future where the Sun is dying and mankind have launched their last hope called Icharus 2, a space ship that has been given the mission of reigniting Earth's dying sun. The crew of Icharus 2 contain some of the greatest minds and pilots known to man, however when they intercept a distress call of Icharus 1, a ship that attempted to reignite the sun seven years, they are forced to investigate. Unfortunately for the crew of Icharus 2, something goes awry and what they discover on this abandoned ship may prove fatal to not only the crew but also Earth itself.

Starring Australia's Rose Byrne and Cliff Curtis (28 Days Later), Sunshine is tastefully directed by Danny Boyle with outstanding performances by all actors involved in this psychological science fiction thriller. The special effects are also outstanding, especially the scenes with Earth's dying sun.

I'm not usually a huge fan of commentaries but Sunshine contains probably one of the best commentaries I have heard in ages. The commentary by director Danny Boyle is interesting but the commentary by Dr. Brian Cox from the University of Manchester really puts credibility into the movie and explains that the scientific facts behind the movie, the inconsistencies and how he was a vital part of the story process. Brilliant!

In conclusion, Sunshine is a great science fiction thriller movie that pits man's darkest hour and how some men can overcome even their greatest fears. Brilliantly directed, acted and made, Sunshine is a must see movie.
