Sunshine

Awful, awful science fiction film about a group of astronauts on a mission to restart the sun; about as interesting as it is plausible: the ship’s computer, ‘Icarus’, is a pale imitation of the HAL 9000, the characters are of the cardboard and completely irrational variety; music is more suited to a teenage horror film than a mature piece of sci-fi. Obvious mythological references quickly become tiring, and the crazed messiah-villain is cliché beyond all imagination. Avoid like a great hulk of orbital wreckage.
