Director Sebastian Cordero (Rage, Pescador) follows a team of intrepid space explorers to one of Jupiter's moons on a mission to investigate evidence of a subterranean ocean that could contain single-celled life in this ambitious sci-fi thriller produced in collaboration with NASA. Determined to explore the possibility that the oceans of Europa could harbor primitive life, a privately funded firm called Europa Ventures assembles six of planet Earth's best astronauts, and sends them deeper into the stars than any human has ever traveled. Should they succeed in reaching their destination and collecting crucial data, mankind could finally have an answer to the age-old question of whether or not we're alone in the universe. In the wake of a frightening technological failure that cuts off all communications with Earth and an unexpected loss that shakes the crew to their very core, the brave astronauts battle physical fatigue and psychological distress before arriving on Europa and making a discovery that could revolutionize our view of the universe -- if they manage to survive the trip back home to tell their incredible story. Sharlto Copley, Michael Nyqvist, and Christian Camargo star.
A fascinating misadventure to explore the most promising other world in our solar system which might harbor life.
After the missing loses contact with Earth, it proceeds to Europa, where a hell of an adventure awaits them!
As a topic of endless fascination to geeks, Europa is a very promising place to look for life, and I feel this movie could have done more to highlight why the science is so interesting. Instead it turned into more of a Bruce Willis + found footage style action thriller.
Tense, suspenseful. Worth watching.
A lean and quietly tense space thriller with excellent special effects.
