'Sunshine' is a terrific sci-fi entry from Danny Boyle, who seems to be able to do basically every genre there is. It's got an interesting premise, good performances, and an ending that suddenly changes the genre to a horror movie, which is both a good and bad thing.
The entire cast is really great. However, the standout for me was Chris Evans. This is definitely my favorite Chris Evans' performance outside of Captain American and I think I might even like this performance more.
The visuals and score wow...what more can be said about both of these other than they're absolutely amazing. Even if you don't like the story, you have to at least have great appreciation for the visuals and score. Really mesmerizing stuff.
A lot of people really dislike the third act of this film and I can understand why. Personally, I really dug it. Yes, there is a pretty dramatic shift in tone. But that shift just added another trilling aspect to an already intense film.
This movie has everything you could possibly want in a Science Fiction film.
In Sunshine the sun is dying and earth is becoming a dark and cold place. so a group of astronauts is sent to reignite the sun with a huge explosion, which is based completely on theory, none of the astronauts know if it will work. sounds like a science fiction classic right? well it has shades of a classic. the acting overall os very good. Cillian Murphy steals the show, he is phenomenal in this movie and he disappears into his role. Chris Evans is good but not great and so is the rest of the cast. the visuals are gorgeous as well. No Danny Boyle movie has ever looked bad. but his style does hit yiu over the head slightly too much in this movie, especially towards the end. I still believe it is directed very well, but some of the more psychedelic shots near the end kind of bothered me, but not to were I hated it. The suspense is very good, which is suprising as you really only care for Cillian Murphys character. the rest of the characters felt expendable and I felt little attachment. and I blame the script for this. it had many great ideas, but it forgot about the character depth. I did really enjoy the ending. I thought it was handled very well, and the last shot gave me a good sense of closure. overall I really enjoyed this movie. way better than a lot of the sci-fi garbage that comes out now. check it out if like you Science fiction and Danny Boyle.
