Rating: Bad.

Sunshine is what happens when you give Danny Boyle $40 million and he throws it into the sun.

But seriously, I didn’t buy a second of this. None of these characters behaved like genius scientists and astronauts who were prepared to die and make tough calls. They behaved like a bunch of babies.

And if you’re going to make an utterly unscientific film, go ahead and embrace the fantasy, amirite? There’s a ton more that could have been done here with the mysterious psychological effects of the sun, the surreal dreams/blur, the Sun being a god and the spiritual meltdown of the first mission, etc.
