Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: The film is nonsense, and what counts is whether viewers will feel able to lay aside their logical complaints and bask in what remains: a trip in search of a tan.

Fresh: Nothing anyone does makes much sense, but gad, is it ever gorgeous.
- Bob Mondello, NPR.org, Saturday, October 18, 2008
Fresh: Sunshine -- despite a title so at odds with the film's tone -- is engrossing, believable and intelligent sci-fi filmmaking at its best.

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.

I kinda liked it. Everything that they explained in this movie seemed logical rather than crap. The slasher part was ridiculous though. Why do bad people always seem to be death-proof?
