In the year 2057, a crew of eight courageous men and women must embark on a journey to the Sun to reignite the dying star and save mankind from extinction. But when a terrible accident throws their mission into jeopardy, the crew find themselves fighting not only for their lives and their sanity, but for the future of us all.
If the sun dies, so do we.. Fifty years into the future, the sun is dying, and Earth is threatened by arctic temperatures. A team of astronauts is sent to revive the Sun — but the mission fails. Seven years later, a new team is sent to finish the mission as mankind’s last hope.. Sunshine Wiki
It started off fantastic with great promis and about 2/3 through the movie turned into some wierd horror film... Why!? The horror aspect did nothing to move the story or plot and only made the film a predictable mess. Also, as a scientist I have to point out that when the sun begins to die it gets larger and hotter, not colder... that part really bugged me as well. There are better sci-fi films, watch those instead.
This is a mindless tale that only gets move mind numbingly vacuous as it progresses. I feel violated not just because it was $16.00 but because I actually watched it to it’s nonsensical and empty headed end. Don’t waste your money.
Awesome acting. Good effects. Story was good. Just a solid sci-fi film.
This is one of those films that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. A brilliant story with an equally brilliant cast. One of the things I love about this film is that it shows the human condition in all it's aspects.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, you should rush to watch this as soon as humanly possible, if you haven't already. And if you already have, do it again.
It’s hard to describe how good this movie is and what what it means to me. The score is so good that it acts like a character of its own. Great acting, superb plot and just all around great. Well worth your time and money.
Excellent pacing and special effects. The characters are believable and organically evolve and clash throughout the story. However there is something that happens in the 3rd act that just brings the whole movie down. Sad because the “twist” was unnecessary and kind of a Deus Ex Machina.
The premise is unbelievably stupid, but if you ignore what they are trying to do the movie is actually pretty good
Great to watch, dont read into it just let it unfold & take it all in.
it was interesting & intriquing until it turned into a psycho stalker movie. Why?
At the start of the this Movie, had High Hopes, But then back to the Fast Forward Button. These people are supposed to be Scientist and they act Autonomously when it was Paramount to be a team. Also with the Computers backing up the Humans, would it not be the Computer to check all changes in Course. No, they left that up to a Human. Great writing, NOT.
The title says it all. I love Sci Fi, I like the director, I HATED this movie. In Apollo 13, as in real life, astronauts are ice cool cucumbers while these characters were teenagers, or worse. The development of the plot was so full of inconsistencies that it destroyed the movie for me. E.G.: while a character entered the clean plant room with his dust mask on, another character entered a dust laden room without his; when the captain called for an unanimous vote & didn't get it, he acted unilaterally. I could go on, nut you get the jest
interesting visual efects, otherwise just a cheap horror movie, complete with zombie, chasing through a spacecraft. totally unlikely scenarios, the acting is mostly a lot of screaming and stupid staring at one and other.
Sunshine is a freshly original work of darn well acted Sci-Fi. A must have for any fan of this genre.
Breaks all the rules of modern physics, but it does so to probe a greater question. This is the prerogative of art. To probe a question that has no language.
Very good movie for sci-fi fans out there. One minor issue with the story line, towards the last 1/4 of the movie. Won't spoil it, but you will know it once it happens. Definitely worth watching.
Fantastic movie. Do not miss to watch this movie
was a good concept. Thought they could have done a bit more with it. But good overall.
The plot and acting is superb. You're in for a ride of suspense, thrills and more. This is a beautiful film that no one should miss.
simply the best. U have to understant all the details to enjoy this movie. Not for everyone.
The plot/vibe reminded me a little of Event Horizon….feel it went into some new territory that other sic-fis haven’t covered. It was quite a refreshing concept. Well done. Loved some of the shots towards the end.
Watch this if you want a good Sci-Fi movie. Amazing!
If you love the Sci Fi genre then this is right up your alley. Lots to do with the intricacies of human nature with lots of twists and turns on the way. Good acting. Lots of suspense. A really weird bit I didn't understand... but hey, a great movie worth watching. Really gives you an appreciation for what we have.
Not worth watching again
The acting in this movie is excellent and absolutely believable. Special effects beat anything I've seen in other Sci-Fi movies and the soundtrack is great. I just want to watch this movie over and over again.

Finally, a sci-fi movie that is not just about the CGI! Sunshine manages to combine impressive cinematography with a great plot and actors who can... well.. act! The almost certainly one-way nature of the trip makes this a brooding film that is less about the science fiction and more about the characters and the nature of sacrifice. This one will stick in your mind.
Such a gorgeous movie. Great acting, script and cinematography! I loved it.
Sunshine is an amazing movie. Instead of taking a traditional action approach, it delves into a psychological element; which truly allows the viewer to enter the context of the movie. This, along with great acting, a unique story line and an excellent soundtrack make Sunshine one awesome movie.
If you are a sci-fi fan you are going to like this movie, it has all the elements of the classic 70s to 90s sci fi movies. Good acting all around from the cast. The only problem is the little bit before the ending suffers the Hollow Man's(2000) problem, probably worse than that, however the concept and acting really makes up for it. Over all a good movie.4 out of 5
