It’s 2057, the sun is dying, and Cillian Murphy and Chris Evans are among a crack team of astronauts sent into space to re-ignite it with a nuclear bomb.
But a series of disasters soon threatens the mission and their lives…
Written by Alex Garland and directed by Danny Boyle, this is an absolutely amazing-looking movie that may be very mysterious and all style-above-content, but rarely puts a foot wrong as it fearlessly treads in the steps of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Evans and Murphy are fine company, too, though the women (Rose Byrne and Michelle Yeoh) have much less to do.
Don’t ask any questions, just take the ride and feel the thrill.
