4 Dont expect an action film, but one to watch again and againDublinDrummer | 16/10/2007 | See all DublinDrummer's reviews (6)When I went to see Sunshine in the Cinema I was really dissapointed as I expected an action packed space flick to blow my mind away. What I got instead was a really slow moving film, with visually impressive scenes, but none of the action I had anticipated. When I left the cinema I was dissapointed, but then started thinking if I had I gone to see this with a differant expectation (ie not an action movie) would I of enjoyed it more. So I went to see it again and I loved it.The Basic Storyline behind the film in laymans terms is that we have 8 Astronaughts going to the sun to restart the dieing stars engine with a giant bomb. I think Boyle is great at Visuals and Characters, both of which are satisfied in this movie. The music and feel to the film is eerie and probobley more what space would be like as a science fact then the sounds we hear in some blockbusters. There is also a cluastrophic feel which helps us get some idea of how the mindset of the spacecrew could be after such a long time far away from home.The first half of the film builds slowly but steady towards the climax and while the ending dissapointed in some parts, I think overall the film is a very good package. The visuals in this film are amazing and I think that this could be the best challange for the Blu Ray DVD to proove its worth. I dont think theres a film available to date that can really get the full advantages out of the Blu ray as this. Since its not out yet I am speculating but if this film is given the chance to be the best it can be, I think the Blu ray edition will only enhance the experience.Reasons why I didnt give this 5 Stars?The ending went a little off the rails and I would expect more from Danny Boyle, given that he is an extremely talented Director.That said I have watched it again and again simply because I love the characters, the mood of the film (very eerie) and the visuals are fantastic.
