Plot Summary- A crew of earths finest astronauts and scientists is aboard a spaceship equipped with a massive payload of explosives. 50 Years into the future, the sun is burning out, and in turn earth is dying. All of earths resources have been mined and consolidated upon one final vessel launched directly at the sun in hopes of rekindling its flame.
Personal Thought- Honestly this movie really blew me away. I hadn't expected such an amazing film out of such a simple idea. So yeah you're on a space ship with explosives headed right toward the sun to re-ignite it, boring right? Wrong. These are the kind of movies where you KNOW everything is going to be a complete shitstorm by the end and they just barely pull it off, this is true for this movie, however they do an amazing job of making it seem like its in the bag the whole time, even when its really not.
But seriously, Whats up with the gravity on the ship??? Arent they supposed to be all floating around because of the 0 gravity? I mean when they're outside of the ship, yeah they're floating around, but when they come back on board their feet are firmly planted...
I know they simply explain this minor flaw away in most space movies by saying that there's some sort of gravity generator on the ship (complete bullshit) but there isn't even the slightest mention of one in this film.
I also thought that the .. "undead" captain of the vessel that failed was pretty unrealistic.. but I mean... I guess thats why its called science fiction right?.. (It still scared the shit out of me tho)
And there you have my minor rant for this film.
Cassie: Only dream I ever have... is it the surface of the sun? Everytime I shut my eyes... it's always the same.
Capa: So if you wake up one morning and it's a particularly beautiful day, you'll know we made it. Okay, I'm signing out.
Seriously guys, go check this movie out. By the way sorry for throwing a few spoilers in if you havent seen the film. If anyone thinks of a way that I can have like a spoiler rollover or like a way to hide the spoilers leave a comment..
Also any thoughts on "Sunshine" or your guy's own personal ratings and reasons are very welcome below.
