"Europa report" shows the difficult choices and sacrifices the crew has to make to fulfill their objective of sending valuable data to Earth for research.Written by
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 »
After the first accident - reported in the first few minutes of the film - the crew have to decide if they will 'go on'. But they would already have the right velocity to get to the Jupiter system. And would have logically been using Jupiter's gravity both to slow and to speed for the return, not possible in Deep Space. See more »
Hey, everybody. Space is great, um... I miss you guys. We're a long way away now. I can't even see, uh, I can't even see Earth anymore.

Very underrated movie. I liked this better than Gravity!
This movie is truly underrated. Same happened with a series called Crash. After noticing the sub-par ratings, I knew I had to write my review. :)
I am 31, educated and I've been watching movies and series actively for as long as I can remember. I consider myself part of the "intelligent" audience whom can occasionally enjoy a block buster action flick. Still to me the most enjoyable movies tend to be the well directed and written drama, like Into the Wild, The Wrestler, Munich, American Gangster and so on.
I was truly impressed how the production team managed to craft something this mesmerizing with the minimal budget they apparently had. Characters felt real and there wasn't any awkward, overacted drama.
The movie is very well paced and it kept me hooked since start to the end. The drama arc was superbly implemented as the suspension thickened as the movie progressed. The sense of loneliness and sadness struct through.
I didn't find any plot holes/annoyances, if you skip the obvious that the crew manages to communicate with Earth without any delay.
Europa Report isn't a block buster action sci-fi for the drooling masses, but instead it is a sort of a minimalistic movie which delivers a surprisingly strong emotional punch.
Recommended! Check it out!
