The editing needs some serious work, it made a lot of the plot very confusing. Other than that, I have no problems with it, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Very good.

Everyone keeps going on about the visuals but to be honest, as spectacular as they were, half the time I didn't know what the hell I was looking at. I didn't find the plot confusing, but the editing was very disorientating at times.

I thought it worked best during the sequences inside Icarus I & II. The acting was of a far, far better standard than I expected, especially for a sci-fi movie. Some very intense, claustrophobic scenes and decent, believable dialogue. I went to Sunshine expecting a slightly more high-brow Armegeddon/Deep Impact type affair, but it's nothing like those at all. I liked it.

I thought is was good. It was beautiful and intense, but I didn't like the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: stupid melted man thing, it just seemed so out of place. It was also so bleak that I probably won't watch it again.

It's really not much good. Some nice ideas but far less than the sum of its parts, and ultimately absolutely unsatisfying.

I just saw the film yesterday, which is early here in Louisville cuz the movie didn't officially come out till today, Friday... so I got to see a special viewing of it and it was utterly AMAZNG!

I rate it as just as good as 28 Days Later or better even!

The whole thing was just great, Danny Boyle knows how to direct a film and freak us out the whole time we are watching it... me and my friend were clinging to each other the entire time, it was that scary/suspenseful!

I recommend that anyone who wants to be freaked out go see this film, its just that great! yes

I kind of liked this when I saw it long ago at the theater. The [SPOILER - highlight to read]: slasher-type-film ending kind of bothered some people, but I thought it worked. This is one I've actually been meaning to watch again to see how it repeats.

I can see that. That's part of why I'm curious to see it again, to see if it's still just as bleak on a second viewing.. heh.
