This is an interesting sci-fi film that does a good job of balancing its interest in its themes and moral questions with the action and drama of the story. I think it also does a particularly good job of utilizing its score and soundtrack. It's used to heighten multiple moments of action and was one of the most memorable aspects of the film for me.

Village Voice by

Ideas scintillate over the surface of Sunshine without ever quite igniting, but at least the movie sparkles. What it doesn't do is cohere. Action flick, sci-fi thriller, metaphysical adventure, incoherent allegory, ethical hypothesis, and horror film all at once, this mad multitasker has the agenda of a dozen movies. Problem is, we know which ones.


New York Magazine (Vulture) by David Edelstein

They’ve taken "2001" and Tarkovsky’s "Solaris" and "Silent Running," mixed in stuff from save-the-earth pictures like "The Core" and "Deep Impact," and thrown in a cheesy climax out of "Alien."


Variety by Derek Elley

Like a collapsing star, Sunshine initially burns brightly but finally implodes into a dramatic black hole.


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

The most indelible moment I took away from Sunshine, in which a tiny figure in a golden space suit floats away from the ship into the gravitational pull of the sun, is one of ecstatic, appalling loneliness.


ReelViews by James Berardinelli

Hard-core science fiction fans will likely greet Sunshine with a smile. Others may find this to be an odd motion picture, but there's enough going on that even those who are expecting something flashier should still be engaged.


The New York Times by Manohla Dargis

A first-rate, seemingly sweat-free entertainer, Mr. Boyle always sells the goods smoothly, along with the chills, the laughs and, somewhat less often, the tears. He’s wickedly good at making you jump and squirm in your seat, which he does often in Sunshine, but he tends to avoid tapping into deep wells of emotion.


Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

Science-fiction fans will like it, and also brainiacs, and those who sometimes look at the sky and think, man, there's a lot going on up there, and we can't even define precisely what a soliton is.
