Europa Report (2013)
Great Sci-Fi with more Sci than Fi
First of all. This is my first IMDb review ever. I've been a member for some years but i never took the time to actually sit down and write a review.
Now, Europa Report is a movie about the first human space voyage into deep space. A group of scientists and astronauts are on a mission to Jupiters moon Europa. This moon is covered in a layer of ice - an indication that there is a possibility for life. The movie is made like a found-footage documentary where they mix footage from the space ship with interviews from other people involved in the mission.
I was deeply moved by this movie. As human beings I believe that we are born with a natural interest for science and a natural urge to explore the world around us. This movie is about just that - to visit and explore places no human has ever been before. To be able to come a little closer to the big question about life, like if there's anybody, or anything, else out there, for example. The story is presented in a logical and realistic way. Without the all the unclear storytelling and large scale CGI alien attacks (Transformers, Pacific Rim etc. I like those movies as entertainment but this is the real thing. Movies like Europa Report actually make you reflect on life and the world around us). The things that happen in this movie feel real and possible and you kind of feel like your'e experiencing a historical event in human history. A few days has past since i saw the movie but it's still stuck in my head and most of all the fantastic ending which totally blew me away.
I strongly advise anyone who's even remotely interested in science and space to see this movie. I myself loved it and I think that, if you understand and agree with what I'm talking about in this review, you will love it too.
