Nothing anyone does makes much sense, but gad, is it ever gorgeous.

The picture would be nothing, an incomplete Venn diagram, without Murphy.

Cluttered storytelling undermines Sunshine.

The human interaction and tension works, how every single member can be sacrificed for the larger good of the humankind. But the acting is uniformly dull, the cast is deadpan, poker-faced and robotic at best.

[Sunshine] delivers the visually incarnate truth of the universe's mysticism.

Don't pack a tube of SPF 50 to the theater; bring a can of Jolt or a double espresso.

"Sunshine's" mostly cerebral adventure into unquantifiable science and human nature makes its huh-what conclusion more forgivable. Loopy as it gets, once the Icarus II sets a course for the heart of the sun, "Sunshine" becomes a head-trip and a half.

A barely noticeable eclipse next to the poetry of Woman in the Moon and Mission to Mars

not crammed with excitement, but it is thoroughly engrossing

Grim, intellectual space adventure. Not for kids.
July 8, 2008
This grim drama about a desperate attempt to save the world from extinction falls just short of being one of 2007's best films.
