Worst movie ever if you like logic.

Even if it falls apart for no apparent reason by the end, Sunshine remains an engaging, smart, and gorgeous sci-fi thriller.

I remember watching this visually stunning film. It's been some years ago. "We're all stardust anyway," right? The mission with a nuclear bomb as big as Manhattan, meant to resuscitate the sun in order to save the humans on planet earth is pretty deep. Then to find a ship sent before yours.

I suppose, Getting too much close and intense sunshine is not only hazardous to our physical well being but also to our mental health.

One of the best sci-fi movies around. I would like to give it 4.9 as I'd like to take out one gory scene but that's about it.

Would've been a for sure 5, but the 3rd act with the killer Captain from the Icarus 1 was LAME!!!

Danny Boyle ventures into the sci-fi genre now setting up a story involving a group of astronauts setting up an artificial sun to save Earth from extinction
a well-rounded cast from Cillian Murphy to Rose Byrne to Michelle Yeoh to Chris Evans
the vessel called the Icarus failed the first time now Icarus 2's mission is to carry out what they couldn't do
it's very heartbreaking to watch but so impressive in many other ways
is the mission more important or just staying alive?
the team's will is tested again and again, should they mess with the will of God? is it better to let mankind die out?
Danny Boyle gives us wonderful visuals along with some intense thrills and complex emotions
the sun is just as important to anyone to continue life's natural progression
it's beautiful but dangerous too

Well made movie about a crew, who are traveling to the Sun to save the Earth. I especially "liked" how they had managed to make the sun seem so horribly dangerous and how there was not room for even one mistake that close to the sun. All in all very entertaining.

extremadamente larga e innecesaria. ilógica, un tipo todo quemado y se supone que por lo tanto débil es capaz de levantar a otra persona con una sola mano, además si atravesó la conexión entre naves, imposible que nadie se diera cuenta.

It's confusing to follow at times but awesome to look at and great sound for your ears. Mashup of sci-fi, horror, suspense.

Can't believe this is now 10 years old! I actually liked it a lot better this time round. Stunning aesthetically and aurally, but uniquely for a film of this type, the crew is made up of intelligent characters who actually act like rational humans, with the unfolding tragedy the result of genuine user error, rather than any big space creature or alien. Gotta admit, I even like the controversial 3rd act, and Chris Evans proves he can actually act too. Well worth a re-watch.

A good Sci-Fi movie with a great cast.

Sunshine is a under appreciated sci-fi by Danny Boyle. It features a ton of great cinematography and a great ensemble cast. The story is handled with great care, and I was really enjoying this film for a large portion of it. The massive usage of yellow and other warm colors works great. This film hardly skipped a beat...until the last 25 minutes. Then it turned into some kind of slasher flick and the movie really lost me as a result. I still enjoyed the last 25 minutes, but it was a completely different film than what I was accustomed to for the rest of the time building up to it. However, I cannot lie that as a whole there is a lot of great things about this movie, and should probably get more recognition than it receives.

Out of all the movies I've ever seen, Sunshine is the one that I've watched the most because it is very addicting.

This is set in the future when the sun is dying out. 8 astronauts then have to go to the sun to deliver a stellar bomb in hopes of re-starting the sun. But the mission proves to be increasingly difficult.

I wasn't a fan at first but this has grown on me a lot. This is a very entertaining movie. It will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. What I like about it is that it kept me engaged all throughout it. Every single one of its action sequences keeps you on the edge of your seats the entire time. The sacrifices made by the crew members are heroic and jaw-dropping. Every characters death scene is handled with care and is done superbly. The movie handles its scenes with care to make them look as good as possible. The movie has a lot of repeat watchability due to this and it adds a whole lot to this movie.

I know that a lot of people complained about Pinbacker, but I disagree with you all. The movie needed something big to spice things up. It needed something to raise tension. Otherwise, the movie would've just been bland. Pinbacker brought a lot of tension to the movie and he carried it with excellence. I know that it's a drastic change of plot so I can understand why someone might not like it. However, what you have to admit is that Pinbacker was a lot better than most slasher/horror movies nowadays. Also, the final third had moving scenes too. Mays death was an amazing scene, the Capa's jump scene is tense and well-done, and the last 5 minutes is just downright beautiful.

This is a really underrated movie. It deserves much more praise. I think that this is a masterpiece. I've seen a few good arguments people have been bringing up but they don't affect my opinion of this. This is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Different, intriguing,

Sunshine is a thoroughly entertaining film. Despite its over-ambitious characters and what-the-hell final act, the story is solid, packed with great visuals, strange alien-ness, moderately good cast performances, and also, some abnormal scenes.
