I'm a girl who likes science and uses it to help me make sense of the world. I prefer it that way. But sometimes, especially in fiction, things don't quite work out exactly scientifically and that's okay.
My spoiler free review:
I really like this movie, especially for the first half, or maybe the first two thirds. The end is a little a lot, but by the time you're there, you're invested and if you can just ride it out it will be okay.
A team of international astronauts is sent on a dangerous mission to reignite the dying Sun with a nuclear fission bomb in 2057.
50 years into the future, the Sun begins to die, and Earth is dying as a result. A team of astronauts is sent to revive the Sun - but the mission fails. Seven years later, a new team is sent to finish the mission as mankind's last hope.
Space-ship Icarus I failed to kick-start Earth's dying sun back into action and disappeared. Icarus II carries the last available nuclear super-bomb on a mission to try again. The navigator's oversight causes serious damage to the ship, yet returning is no longer a hope, the mission dubious. Having picked up Icarus I's emergency signal from Mercury, they decide to try pick up its bomb. That side-trip comes at a high cost. But an even worse surprise is lurking aboard.
