Chris Evans, Cillian Murphy, and Michelle Yeoh star in this sci-fi film from Danny Boyle. Extras included deleted scenes, alternate ending, web production diaries, commentary by Boyle, and more.
A novel blend of doomsday thriller and meditative science fiction, Danny Boyle's Sunshine imagines a disturbing future in which mankind must re-ignite the sun or face total extinction. A team of scientists and crew members (played by an eclectic cast that includes Cillian Murphy from Boyle's 28 Days Later, The Fantastic Four's Chris Evans, Rose Byrne of TV's Damages, and martial-arts legend Michelle Yeoh) is dispatched to the dying star, but disaster strikes from almost every conceivable angle; as the crew is whittled down by accidents and psychological breaks, the survivors must discover a way to carry out the mission or seal the fate of the world's population. Alternately exciting and pensive, Sunshine's dichotomous tone may throw viewers expecting a special-effects bonanza (though the film's visuals are frequently stunning), but for those who recall such cerebral '70s efforts as Silent Running and Phase IV, Boyle's unusual take will be refreshing and even fascinating. The DVD includes commentaries by Boyle and Dr. Brian Cox, who served as the film's science advisor; Boyle also lends his voice to a brace of deleted scenes, including an alternate ending (which doesn't improve on the one used in the film). Thorough production diaries cover every aspect of the film's execution, from casting to special effects design, while a pair of unrelated short films by Chris Shepherd and Dan Arnold seems to be included only as a gesture of Boyle's appreciation for these directors. --Paul Gaita

|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||
It looks like we are out of luck because Sony does not care. Here is the log from my email correspondence:
Hello: I recently tried to watch a BlueRay disc I've watched many times before: Sunshine. However, now it only plays with the PIP commentary on. It is impossible to disable it. The PS3... Read More

|Event Horizon, anyone?||
i'd have to say that i disagree. event horizon had a great premise - one that could have made the movie great. however, it was sam neill's character (which i thought might carry the plot through - that was the weak point), that let me down at the end - not sam neill himself, but the... Read More
