I went to the cinema to see Sunshine last night. I thought it was pretty cool, although I don’t think the other people I was with were convinced.
A group of scientists are sent to reignite the dying sun by exploding a bomb the size of Manhattan island. I seem to remember an episode of Star Trek Next Generation with a similar mission, but I may not be remembering correctly. It is very much a space film, but it focuses heavily on the individual characters. I actually felt like I cared about the people, which is more than I can say for 300.
Update: I think this is a fair review, but it is a bit of a spoiler, so read it at your peril.
