Synopsis
As the sun begins to dim along with humankind's hope for the future, it's up to a desperate crew of eight astronauts to reach the dying star and reignite the fire that will bring life back to planet Earth in this tense psychological sci-fi thriller that re-teams 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle with writer Alex Garland and producer Andrew Macdonald. The skies are darkening, and the outlook for planet Earth is grim. Though the encroaching darkness at first seems unstoppable, scientists have concocted one desperate last-ditch plan to buy the human race a temporary reprieve from the grim future that looms just past the horizon. A crew of eight men and women has been given a nuclear device designed to literally reignite the sun and sent hurdling through infinity on the most crucial space mission ever attempted. Suddenly, as the crew loses radio contact with mission control, everything begins to fall apart. Now, in the darkest reaches of the galaxy, the men and women who may hold the key to ultimate survival find themselves not only struggling for their lives, but their sanity as well. Rose Byrne, Chris Evans, Cillian Murphy, and Michelle Yeoh star in a film that asks audiences just what would become of humankind if the sky suddenly went black. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

This is not an action film. Although some of the science is a bit silly, this movie holds truer to the sci-fi genre by being about something bigger than just what the plot has going on. If you're looking for a shoot-em-up that happens to be set in outer space you will be disappointed. I enjoyed it immensely. The cast is great and features one of my recent favorite actors Cillian Murphy. Every character is well developed and brings something to the story. The effects are well done and serve the movie rather than trying to BE the movie.

The only problem, and it's kind of a big one, is the character's motivation for a pretty central event in the plot. I won't give it away, but if you can forgive it and just go with it, it's a fun ride, well maybe fun is a little light and breezy, as this movie puts every character through a lot of mental torture.
