Europa Report

Starring: Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, Christian Camargo
DIR: Sebastián Cordero

Blurb: An international crew of astronauts travel to Jupiter's moon, Europa on a mission of discovery. A mission that quickly runs into serious problems.

My Blurb: Okay. So... like many, I think, I've gotten really burned out on the "found footage" concept. It's gone from being innovating to being a cheap way to film people in a dark location screaming a lot when they're not busy being the world's most awful people. So, when I started this film with onboard camera footage, I immediately groaned in pain.

But, the film wasn't awful, hence my deciding to include a review...

Scene 01: We start the film with a mission briefing report on screen pointing out the plan behind the manned expedition we're about to follow.
Mankind's first landing on Europa isn't without heartbreak.Collapse )

Current Mood: "updated review - please re-read"

Scene 40: As Katya takes a moment to orient herself, we hear the soft tics from her geiger counter.

She sets to work in the target zone, collecting samples for remote analysis onboard the lander. Her radiation levels are fluctuating, but remain in acceptable limits.
We confirm extraterrestrial life. But the knowledge doesn't come cheap.Collapse )
