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.

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.
July 27, 2007
For Mr. Boyle, a Swiss Army knife of a filmmaker, there's always something new.

There's a near-tactile pleasure to the special effects in Sunshine that is uncommon in this era of CGI imagery.

Other movies may explore the depths of outer space. This movie explores the shallows.

July 20, 2007
As a pure cinematic experience, it's exhilaratingly, brutally beautiful.
July 20, 2007
The pressure to save mankind is enormous, and our attention grows as the tension mounts. Light is used in haunting and powerful ways throughout. But as the film ultimately deviates from its course, the entire undertaking suffers.
July 20, 2007
Sunshine -- despite a title so at odds with the film's tone -- is engrossing, believable and intelligent sci-fi filmmaking at its best.
