Fresh: Sunshine -- despite a title so at odds with the film's tone -- is engrossing, believable and intelligent sci-fi filmmaking at its best.
- Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, Friday, July 20, 2007
Fresh: The first hour and change is gangbusters, the last part unnerving enough to get by.

A new sci fi movie that i hadnt heard about but was better than i expected.

Danny Boyle is a filmmaker I have a lot of trouble with. While his films are always dazzling to look at ("28 Days Later", "The Beach") his films don't always grab me emotionally ("Trainspotting", "Slumdog Millionaire"); but it's with "Sunshine", his best film by far, that combines the stunning visuals and the intense characterizations he needs to be successful. With great performances from Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne and Chris Evans and some of the most dazzling images to ever be put to film, "Sunshine" is a rare sci-fi film that both makes you think and brings you into an entirely new perspective. Plus, the emotional impact (something along the lines of "Hearts of Darkness but in space), is something to behold.
