Storyline

The astronauts William Xu, Rosa Dasque, Dr. Daniel Luxembourg, Dr. Katya Petrovna, Andrei Blok and James Corrigan travel to the moon of Jupiter known as Europa in the spacecraft Europa One. Their assignment is to investigate the existence of life in Europa, based on the discovery of water in the moon. When they experience communication breakdown, Andrei and Corrigan need to go outside the spacecraft to repair it. However, Corrigan accidentally contaminates his suit with hydrazine and he is left behind in space. When they land, they miss their target and they decide to drill the ice to research. Then Katya collects samples proving the existence of one alien organism from Europa but she has a tragic accident. The survivors decide to return to Earth with their discovery but there is a problem with the engines and they get stranded in Europa. Will they be able to fix the engines and return to Earth with their findings? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Hydrazine has been used for decades in spacecraft as thruster propellant and as fuel for auxiliary power units. It is corrosive and extremely toxic. See more »

Goofs

The probe shows shimmering daylight, even though Europa is five times as far removed from the sun as Earth, and in the movie the ice sheet is at least 2800m thick, both of which combined should result in darkness at that depth. See more »

Better than the other reviews would let on
30 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie. It was a good sci-fi flick, but based in a believable near-future world. The voyage is captured by stationary cameras throughout the ship and a story is patched together from them. The acting was very good. There admittedly wasn't much in the way of character development, but I didn't notice it. The whole film I was hoping the story would move forward faster and faster to the end, to find out what, if anything, was discovered, and the fate of the crew.

Mostly what I liked about it was that it wasn't over-the-top storytelling, nor was it over-the-top with special effects. It used them only to tell the story that needed to be told and weren't overused. One reviewer chastised the special effects as being poor, but I disagree. They were believable. Bad is the crap they make for the Science Fiction Channel.

This movie may not appeal to everyone precisely because it's not over-the-top. It was simple, with building tension throughout the film and a good ending. There weren't monsters and aliens everywhere, there was a distinct Hitchcocian feel to it.

Very good; well worth watching.
