  • The characters are so sketchily drawn that it's hard to keep them straight, let alone get worked up about their survival. show more

  • Sunshine can be seen as a story about science and religion, about the rational mind and the mad. But at a certain point, like a dying star about to pop into eternal nothingness, the movie can't be seen as anything - it just implodes. show more

  • Sunshine is its own creature, taking inspiration from classic science fiction films but insisting on a gritty reality that much improves on past space adventures. show more
