Wondering why times are missing?

Sunshine

Director Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, The Beach, Trainspotting) tries something different with this taut sci-fi disaster flick about a team of astronauts sent into space to reignite our dying sun 50 years from now. Rose Byrne (Troy), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) and Michelle Yeoh (Memoirs of a Geisha) are among the diverse cast. The film keeps focused on the human element, detailing the assorted errors and personality conflicts that jeopardize the mission. The tension rises to near unbearable levels--at least until the final quarter when a sketchy plot development (straight out of a different movie genre) pushes things way too far over the top. 107 minutes R.
