Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this film and enjoyed re-watching it with the commentary by Professor Brian Cox, the scientific consultant for the movie.

Those reviewers who are stating that the science is poor (or even "ridiculous") may not have listened to this commentary. There are some errors, which Cox points out, but the overall idea is not impossible, or even so farfetched as to be 'virtually impossible'.

Professor Cox is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Particle Physics at the University of Manchester who also works on the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva. In his commentary he mentions discussing with other scientists at CERN about the Q-ball hypotheses and relevance to sun-dying and restarting in the movie. (Incidentally, he seems to believe the existence these super-symetrical (or super-stable) objects will be proven (by CERN) within the next 10 years or so.) His problems with science in the movie tend to be some of the smaller issues (for example - the craft orbiting Mercury a few times, rather than just a 'sling-shot' use).

His statement on what the penultimate scene means to him (even if it only occurs in a 'billionth of a second', or in 'the mind') is wonderful, and really impressed upon me the beauty, wonder, and awe many scientists hold for the universe. I think some reviewers only saw this scene in a literal earth-based perception of time and were put-off by it. Again, it's not necessarily meant to be seen that way. (And as mentioned earlier, Professor Cox's comment on its magnificence is inspiring.)

Another criticism reviewers have mentioned was why so many unstable people were picked for these missions.

By Jeff
Format:Blu-ray
Most underrated film of 2007. And potentially the best Blu-ray disc of 2008.

Ground breaking director Danny Boyle has done it again with sci-fi action-adventure film "Sunshine." It is something you have never seen before. The film takes place in 2057. The sun is dying and mankind faces extinction. The Earth's last hope lies in the hands of the crew on Icarus II. Attempting to fly to the sun and launch a massive nuclear weapon into it to ignite the fading star. Out of the radio contact with Earth, the mission begins to unravel and they find themselves fighting for their lives and the future of us all.
Fans of other Danny Boyle's films will not be disappointed. His fantastic films include; 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Transpotting, The Beach and Shallow Grave. The films delivers in every aspect. Unfortunately, the advertising campaign wasn't very strong for this round of Danny Boyle's film. And "Sunshine" only played in about 4000 screens. I luckily, found this on playing in a theatre near me when it was released in July 2007 and fell in love with it.
Overall "Sunshine" was a great, great, sci-fi film that would be shown to anyone who enjoys a good movie. I wish the advertising campaign would have been better because this is one film that should not be missed.

Film itself: *****

"Sunshine" uses a 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 which is a great choice for the Fox Classic. This film has great visuals, mainly scenes in outer space. Without giving too much away, the last 20 minutes of the film are amazingly done and the visuals should be nominated for an Academy Award. The transfer to Blu-ray is very well done. When I saw it in the theatre, I was worried about some of the segments of the film because they are darker and could cause the screen to be grainy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex, heart felt, and outstanding February 10, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I posted a response to the one and only review of this film. Well, that wasn't good enough, because I left this movie so captivated by it that I was recommending it to friends right and left. To see the first review be so negative, so ethnocentric, so religiously stymied was difficult for me. So here you are, looking at a review written just because I disagree.

How American of me.

The acting was subtle and well balanced, unaffected and natural. The director seemed to understand where to put things, as directing goes, and he worked his cast very well, using the script and the players to a serious advantage so that they all produced an artistic work.

As to the story - this seems to have been written by someone who loves to study people as much as any anthropology major, and who sees the complexity in the enormous spectrum of human nature. We're all the same, but we're really not. That's the fun of Us, and that's the beauty of this film. There are some difficult moments, and if I find a fault here, it's that too much was edited out. The little tiny clues that would help the viewer to fully understand (read: not too much guessing) is only available as an extra on the DVD, and probably won't be found on the unbox version, since they don't sell anything but the movie itself. It's a pity. This film is enriched by the extras on the DVD and should be seen to fully appreciate the film (although not strictly necessary).

So please, take a chance and see this movie. If you're adventurous you'll see a great adventure and won't be disappointed, all the way to the end and further.

Why the hell did they combine the reviews?
I agree. I can see why they might do something like that--when a movie has no Blu-Ray-specific reviews, it can be nice to at least read a review about the CONTENT of the movie. But they should be in a separate section clearly labeled "reviews of other versions"--especially when you... Read more

PIP on Sunshine BD
I'm having the same issue with the Sunshine BD I got from Netflix. This feature is called "A Brilliant Vision" and it plays by default every time I start the movie, and I can't select the option to turn it off. I have a Sony BDP-BX57 player with the latest update.
