Film: Sunshine Click for more info

Sci-fi thriller with a little bit of horror thrown in too for good measure. Starts off pretty well as join the crew mid-mission, and carries on with enough twists and turns to keep the viewer relatively entertained for a while.

However it seems to burns too brightly. Much like the stars it's telling us about, it runs out of steam toward the end, presenting a conclusion that really doesn't live up to the rest of the film.

Still, when it's good it's good, especially when you realise that the whole saving-the-world business is secondary to the film's characters and the way in which they interact with each other and the situation they find themselves in. To that particular end, Sunshine manages to become a welcome diversion from more regular thrillers.
