I've always found Europa to be so fascinating and this movie depicts exactly what I'd love to see happen in my lifetime - a manned mission to the most intriguing of Jupiter's moons.

Oh look, another 'found footage' movie -_-
For the genre it's pretty good, but this style of movie making is getting old.

Excellent, plausible SciFi. Really well done.

This Science fiction gave weight to the real question that others sci-fi movies took for granted! "Are we alone in the universe?"

Interesting space exploration to Jupiter as I enjoyed the first 3/4 of it, but, I just thought that all the deaths seemed to be too fabricated. Still good overall

A tense, tight science-fiction thriller whose impact is undone slightly by obnoxious found-footage aspects and off-kilter pacing.

Outstanding. This film plays like a very real and very believable event in the near future. Solid characters and nicely made in all respects.

A realistic journey around Jupiter.

The first half of the film seemed unnecessarily confusing (did not need use as many time jumps). But when the plot begins to settle down and go filling in the gaps, we find a great movie very attached to scientific guidelines we know so far.
This film gives us a chilling trip into one of the most striking Jupiter's moons.
Note that the characters are not very attractive. However the story unfolds in a captivating environment full of mysteries.

Most notable are the images so well achieved Jupiter and its moons. This film is a journey that every lover of science and astronomy should do.

Very convincing mocumentary images. My only niggle is that we would surely never put people on Europa because of the risk of contaminating any ecosystem there. I dread to think what damage this crew would've caused has this been real.

I ended up just skipping to all the interesting/scenic parts, which were pretty cool, so I decided to give it 2 stars. Other than that....

While far from perfect, Europa Report delivers an entertaining story with a surprising amount of chills and depth as well.

simply incredibke, the masses are far too unsophisticated for this which is what I attribute the 56% rating to.

The floating camcorder. I hate it. An active living breathing hate of bile and vomit and shit. So fugging manipulative. An hour plus of set-up which includes some halfass and boring get-to-know-the-cast "jovial" clowning and then the real fun begins. The remainder of the film too shaky, too dark to see anything, overly loud snotty breathing, loads of yelling: "What? What? I can't see! Where is everyone? Help me! HELP! AAAAAAAAAAUGH! What happened? Where is everyone? Help me!" The End. And what? In a supposedly visual medium you've been conned into watching ... nothing. I fugging hate it.

Europe Report has this post-discovery documentary style, which left him in some ways, more interesting. In the end, he kind of has a footprint that looks like a mixture of The Blair Witch Project and 2001: A Space Odyssey. I enjoyed the movie, he has a different footprint, intelligent script, crafted completion and high quality effects as opposed to low-budget. A great work of Sebastián Cordero, he deserves all the positive reviews.

A viagem exploratória a uma das luas de Júpiter revela uma forma de vida nova e assustadora. Feito como um documentário da viagem, mostra o medo e excitaçăo das pessoas em fazer algo que nenhum homem fez antes.

A well timed sci-fi fix, nothing more, nothing less.

A study of stoicism in a space scientific project. The reportage and editing gave a very realistic feeling.

One day, when we all go back in time to find the most exciting movies of our generation, you will not find Europa Report listed anywhere near the top. In fact, it likely won't be listed near the top of any list that isn't about terrible endings or predictability. I will admit, for the first.. half hour? of this movie I was mildly interested. This film is three quarters "found footage" and one quarter interviews with the actors playing the part of mission control. You will not find either part overly thrilling. Anyway, after the half hour mark the film shows its hand at what we can expect for the rest of the story. From then on, it's completely a film that you've seen time after time. I was so disappointed as I fully expected a new and decently exciting science fiction film that would avoid most cliche's that plague the genre. Around the half hour mark, welcome to cliche central. And please, no one ask me about the ending. It was so obvious but at the same time it just feels like such a let down. You hold out hope that there might be a glimmer of something fresh and redeeming, but sadly that is not the case. Europa Report in my view does not deserve the current 80% approval rating that is has among critics. By the way, Europa Report is a literal title. Did you feel that? Your enthusiasm just died a little as well.

If this is how you put science back into science fiction, then I must put the sci-fi in the trash can, because that's where this belongs. This is a mostly rudimentary film without any real suspense or plot and those who have written this might have seen 2001 more than once. It has an unnecessary non-linear narrative in the first half which has no reason to exist and if it were not there, then the film could have had at least one genuine twist. It has an A-list cast who give the film some value and instead of concentrating on science, this film always tries to build some form of Alien mystery that simply falls flat. And for visual effects, most of them are mediocre and they don't provide VFX whenever it's really needed. However, the film has some stationary effects that add to it's value, mostly that of planets and their terrains. The found footage format seems unnecessary as it could have been more interesting if the audience were shown something visually striking.
