Editorial Reviews

When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa's icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discovery. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crew member, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.

By calling Europa Report a speculative documentary, I mean to put it in the same style category of Discovery Channel et. al. efforts like "Supervolcano" and "Alien Contact." It invokes the feel of a National Geographic expedition documentary.

Overall, a great effort for a fairly low budget film. The bad science issues are minor - most notable are the rotating arm of the spaceship with no counter rotation of the rest of the ship (Newton's third law anyone?) and the apparently full Earth gravity on Europa.

The plot devices I consider flaws are unrealistic scenarios like: the problems encountered during the spacewalk, the lack of mission planning that threw such a huge wrench into the crew's plans after landing a mere 100 meters from their intended landing site, a lack of ANY redundant way to communicate with Mission Control, and a few questionable decisions by the crew. (I liken the extension of the surface walk to the classic 'space-explorer-takes-off-his-helmet-to-confirm-the-air-is-breathable' scene played out in SciFi movies from the 1950's right through "Prometheus").

Though the biggest 'suspension of disbelief' needs to be reserved for the possibility that we would send humans to Europa without first sending even a fraction of the robotic exploration we've sent to Mars. I think the movie could have mentioned a few more advanced robotic missions as prelude to the manned mission to help with the authenticity of the premise.

While I agree with other reviewers that it's good to see a movie where scientists understand the importance of the data, I also applaud the movie for demonstrating the narrow-mindedness that scientists can show.

This is indie sci-fi. Hence, it has flaws, partly due to the limitations that it gets from being "indie" as opposed to a Hollywood-funded gig.

With that said, this haunted me. The hard-science aspects of it are pretty good, at least in terms of plausibility. (Don't get stuck on the fact that some of the footage is of actual rockets that couldn't possibly launch a major interplanetary craft or other details like that...) There are other tidbits that as a true space-nut I could nit-pick, but what I really liked was the fact that it seemed like the film makers made a real effort to ask "What if we did have a mission like this? What would be the things that could realistically go right or wrong? How would it affect both the people involved and the people back on Earth?"

There are aspects of the movie that seemed like they were heading toward "thriller" territory, but they really didn't get there. Sure, there's dramatic tension and some usual movie tropes, but not the ones that usually piss me off about more recent sci-fi. What they found on Europa didn't "get them", and when bad things happened, it wasn't a good-guy vs bad-guy situation or a rogue crew-member does something wrong type of situation like so often happens in movies. What they portrayed was more about passionate scientists making the best of what they had and sacrifices for the good of each other and in the pursuit of knowledge. Sure, that's also drama, but it didn't feel like things that were written or portrayed just for the sake of drama. It felt more like the type of things that the crew of such a mission really might have happen and really might react to in such ways.

3.0 out of 5 stars Humans-they taste like chicken November 15, 2013
Format:DVD
I have mixed feelings on this one. It is an attempt to redo 2001 but with a bit more science and a bit less flash. The dialogue and fuzzy pictures got quite tiresome after awhile. I know all the static was an attempt to make it look more real, but I actually like to see what's happening.
Now, there actually have been proposals to travel to Europa and drill through the ice, so I like the concept, but I really wasn't riveted, and the ending was just not satisfying. Of course, what made it worse was the ending speech by the program director back on earth trying to make it all noble and uplifting. It was just too smaltzy. It was OK, but certainly not more than that.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worse movie I've seen May 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a loyal scifi fan and trust me this movie isn't qualified to be called scifi. This was one of the worse movies I've seen. I wish there was a means to get my money back and to be paid for watcfhing this trash of a movie. This movie even ended weird, you sit thinking there must be more and then its over, the end. Who wrote such a dumb movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't wast yer money ! June 12, 2014
By videooo
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Europa Project it ain’t worth no $3.99, what a waste, this flick is definitely a 10-cent streaming film rental if I’ve ever seen one. Europa, this waste of good celluloid had to be written and produced by a Canadian or Australian Studio - so it really helps to be a Canadian or an Australian to enjoy this flick. Cause these folks just look at film appreciation differently than we in the US, although granted, we’ve made our share of terrible Si-Fi flicks as well and Europa ranks right up there with the best, or is that the worst of them.

Europa’s screen play was weak at best, five or six really stupid astronauts, with less smarts than God gave a Troup of blonde girl Scouts, stumble their uneventful way to Europa and blunder their way into deaths.

The Project’s cinematography had a few good moments but was mostly horrible. Practically the whole flick is shot from the POV of the space ships on-board security documentary log cameras - then assembled in to a four to six way split screen to show the action - and they used it far to frequently achieving the exact opposite effect the were hope’n for. Instead of intensifying the primary action, it diluted the characters on screen energy with secondary visual gunk.

This long-ago, seldom used, then almost abandoned in films, method of multiple split screen visual camera continuity greatly detracts from the overall potential action or drama energy of what’s important in the scenes and the emotion the story intends to create. When you clutter main screen depicting the primary action with 4 to 6 tiny sub screens, of the same scene or multiple scene locations, from so many angles, it reduces the primary scenes looses its power.
