      Namrata Joshi Outlook The human interaction and tension works, how every single member can be sacrificed for the larger good of the humankind. But the acting is uniformly dull, the cast is deadpan, poker-faced and robotic at best. Rated: 2/4 Jan 23, 2019 Full Review David Fear Time Out Rated: 3/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Hank Sartin Time Out Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast The reteaming of Danny Boyle and Alex Garland (28 Days Later) delivers an awe-inspiring, gorgeous film with an unexpected genre shift. Rated: 4/5 Jun 10, 2024 Full Review Joe Lipsett Horror Queers Podcast Boyle's incredible visuals are complemented by his deep bench of international actors. And while the last act initially feels jarring in tone and subject, on subsequent viewings the foundation for Pinbacker and sun madness is present throughout Rated: 4/5 Jun 6, 2024 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Sunshine is a film that is hit or miss and while your mileage may vary, one cannot deny the cinematic ambition of it all.

      Autonomous J Sunshine is an odd duck. Anything with Cillian Murphey is worth watching. The special effects and sound effects are awesome. The sun scenes are really intense. The setting of the movie makes for great drama. The idea of traveling so close to the sun is already a drama filled adventure. However, for some reason, the choice is made to pivot towards a horror/slasher element towards the last 20 minutes of the movie. It was necessary and turned a great sci-fi plot into a cliche. The ending brings the rating down a whole star for me, but it is definitely still worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Regina P All of this top-tier star power in one movie, and I had never heard of it until recently... and now I know why. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/05/24 Full Review Aine T Great cast. Simple and powerful. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review The Movie G First off the cast for this movie is insane. The story was interesting . I love John Murphy electronic score. I felt like the last 30 minutes I was kinda confused. I need to re watch it . 7/10 it was good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review D S Watched this a while ago. Don't remember much but it was intense with a far fetched plot. As far fetched as Armageddon but serious and more dramatic. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Rebekah P Once watched this twice in two days. Long, long ago, we watched it when it first came out. We were in our 20s and didn't care for it. Now that we're old and jaded and aware of impending doom hanging over all our heads, we have rewatched, reconsidered, and realized IT IS AMAZING. One of Chris Evans' best roles. One of Cillian's. IT IS SO GOOD. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Read all reviews
