...hard to understand what's going on and who's who, but it is directed with such style by Danny Boyle that it is not possible to not be involved.

While Sunshine echoes some previous films, especially 2001: A Space Odyssey and Alien, Danny Boyle imprints his distinctive mark. This visionary director from Manchester, England, may be on his way to being one of moviemaking's greats

The brilliant production design and convincing special effects (which eschew the CGI slickness of most Hollywood productions) make up for a confused final act.
August 2, 2007
As with last year's The Fountain, the likewise leisurely paced Sunshine employs dazzling visual effects in the service of an ambitious and heady undertaking whose philosophical reach attempts to exceed its narrative grasp.

A movie that Carl Sagan would have liked.

operates on the level of pure entertainment even as it asks the big questions about the meaning of existence and challenges every assumption, including what constitutes a happy ending

While the scope is inter-planetary, it always gets down to the behavioral clashes among human (and/or non-human) species trapped in a confined space.

...science fiction for people who like to think as well as experience a sense of wonder.

"Sunshine" is a sight for sore eyes.
July 29, 2007
At once one of the best and worst films of the year.

(W)hat Boyle and Garland accomplish here is nothing short of a miracle.They manage to allude to previous motion pictures and yet make the riffs and references seem wholly their own.

After a mesmerizing first hour, the film implodes so quickly our sputtering sun can barely keep pace.
July 27, 2007
The film's gravest narrative misstep is a latter-reel development that moves it specifically, and arbitrarily, into horror-movie territory.
July 27, 2007
Cluttered storytelling undermines Sunshine.
July 27, 2007
On sci-fi's crowded table Boyle serves a fresh feast for our eyes, minds and hearts.

Sunshine, if a fireball, is one that warns us yet again of the danger of flying too close to the sun.

For Mr. Boyle, a Swiss Army knife of a filmmaker, there's always something new.
July 27, 2007
Steven Soderbergh had his emotionally constipated Solaris, and now Boyle has this long night's journey into day.
July 27, 2007
There's a near-tactile pleasure to the special effects in Sunshine that is uncommon in this era of CGI imagery.
July 27, 2007
Problems arise in the film's third act...and the film doesn't recover.
