juOnMovie: Sunshine

After Dreamgirls, this movie was the next that made me want to get out and watch it in the theatre. And I was not disappointed.

Set in the age when life on earth is in the brink of extinction as the mighty sun starts losing its power like a candle’s light flickering before it is extinguished, Sunshine tells of the mission of 8 astronauts sent to re-ignite the power of the only source of light in the solar system. Will they be successful? Surprisingly, the technology they bring with them is a minute factor in their mission’s success. Crafted by the same team behind 28 Days Later (which by the way has a follow up coming in May this year, 28 Weeks Later), it showed how emotions and values are both human’s triumph and defeat. The movie is science fiction at its best, and edge-of-your-seat adventure, and a fine human drama. You might want to visit for more information about this movie
