I've been well-hyped to see Sunshine for almost a year, so I was surprised that it came and went with so little splash. And I'm doubly-surprised now that I've seen it, because it's a really tight hard sci-fi thriller. Seven astronauts are on a mission to restart the dying sun with a giant bomb, a mission that an earlier team has already failed at. The tension is palpable, the action is exciting, and it's visually fascinating. What's not to like?
