    Director Cordero manages the not-bad trick of generating suspense while keeping the overall tone cool and collected. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    "Another Earth" and "Moon" transcended their financial and physical limitations with mystery and ambiguity. Europa Report goes ploddingly where bolder films have gone before. show more

    A quiet, modest chamber piece more like "Moon" than "Star Wars." show more

    The real treat here is the science, not the fiction. The film’s sleek aesthetic was developed in consultation with NASA about what such a mission would actually require, and look like as viewed on surveillance cameras. show more

    Technique largely does the work of imagination. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The nuts and bolts of Europa Report may feel very familiar, but the movie doesn’t look quite like anything else. show more
