50 years into the future,the Sun is being destroyed from inside out by a type of highly stable form of matter that renders nuclear fusion impossible, by turning common matter on its own kind. The only hope is to send a team of astronauts to detonate a massive, highly energetic bomb, able to destroy this strange matter and restore Sun's natural state. Director Danny Boyle put new life into the zombie genre with his film "28 Days Later" and now he's done it to the sci-fi genre as well will his latest film "Sunshine". Sunshine wastes no time getting right into the story, as the film opens the crew of 8 are already on their way to try and save mankind and look for another ship that was sent o do the same but never was heard from again. This film is simply breath-taking to look at, from the production design, costumes, the sound design and the music there's times when I sat back and just went "wow". Sadly I did not have the chance to see this in theaters but I am sure it made for an incredible cinematic experience for those that were lucky enough to see it. The cast was fantastic, the film does not really have a major lead actor which I felt was a bonus as it helped create the mood and it keeps you guessing as who may or may not make it back alive. Actor Chris Evans as excellent and it was nice to see Michelle Yeoh in a different kind of role from her butt-kicking Asian film's. If you looking for a sci-fi film with aliens running around and lots of action and gun-play look elsewhere cause this is not it. But if your looking for a film that delivers a true science fiction story filled with great tension, an amazing story and some of the best cinematography you have seen in years then own this DVD today. Sunshine is a film you want to watch several times over and tell your friends about as well.The DVD comes packed with bonus features that include:
