Sunshine started off as an interesting study of space crew psychology, coupled with some stunning special effects. However, as the film progressed the narrative devices got ever more ridiculous. The logic was flawed, the science bits were just silly and for a craft that is supposed to be flying into the face of the sun it really has far too many design flaws which are really only there to drive the plot (yes, I know it's science FICTION, but still...) After the first two-thirds of the film Danny Boyle tries to go all 2001
on us and attempts to ask questions about the nature of existence and the presence (or lack) of a god. Instead what we end up with is the remaining crew being hunted down by a deep-fried crispy nutbag with a superiority complex.
