I watched something like the last two thirds of this film a few months ago when it was on a Freeview channel, as background while I was working on my computer. I ended up stopping work to concentrate on it. After trying for far too long since then, to buy an English version, one of the Amazon reviews of this German version made the point that it was easy to set the dvd to English and to turn off subtitles. So, I ordered a copy from Amazon, which arrived today, from Switzerland I think. I have just finished watching it, and only one word describes it for me: outstanding. Probably the nearest you can get to making such a film realistic re the crew behaviour and what they find (on one of Jupiter’s moon so far away), as I’ve ever seen on a Sc-fi, space type film. No famous film stars trying to enhance their reputations with all sorts of dramatic over the top acting, no blood dripping monsters at every turn. Instead a film that could almost be seen as a documentary about the first manned mission to Europa. Appropriate to some extent, as NASA’s Europa Clipper mission is scheduled for 2022 – 2025 (unmanned and non-landing). Google ‘NASA Europa Clipper’ to get the full story from those who know about it, rather than me try and describe the planned mission here. But to me at least, knowing about that NASA mission makes Europa Report an even better watch. OK, it’s based on ‘found footage’ and does jump around a bit, so you need to concentrate on the film, as doing that makes it all fit into place as it plays out on the tv screen. I guess from reading some of the negative reviews, it’s a bit like Marmite; you’ll either love it or hate it. I am most certainly in the former category and will watch it again very soon. Oh, re the fact that it’s a German version. Well it’s an American production and the actors all speak in English, which can be turned on very easily just before the film starts. At the same time as choosing the language, subtitles can be turned off. If I can do that, surely anyone can!

What is knowledge worth?
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this. It sets up the tension and builds it well, with at least two red herrings to keep you guessing until the end, but does so to address a vital question. The theme that the film consistently explores is "How much is scientific knowledge worth in human terms?", and it strongly veers towards the assertion that the answer is "A lot, if you believe in it", countering the view of soft (or non-existent) science genres like Star Trek that make it all about people values (unless you're beaming down in a red shirt, of course!). The right answer, of course, depends on what sort of person you are. Scientists have risked their wealth, their health, and ultimately their lives throughout history to advance the cause of knowledge, from Scott (who froze to death) and Curie (who died from radiation exposure) to, of course, Galileo (who lived much of his life under house arrest from the Inquisition). If those people look like heroes to you, then you will get this film; if they don't, you probably won't, I guess.

Tedious beyond words.
Verified purchase
After a lifetime of craving some more believable science fiction that is grounded in real science, I get this. 90 minutes of people in a room talking to the camera (as if it’s a documentary), and then 2 minutes of something happening at the end that doesn’t really go anywhere. Never have I cared less about a films characters, plot, or climax, because this film has none of those things. If you want some good, thoughtful SF with its roots firmly grounded in the believable then skip this dross and watch “The Expanse”.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this film, being a fan of well made sci-fi, but actually it was very entertaining. Good acting & fair script. The outdoor shots & screenplay are surprisingly realistic & accurate, not what i expected from a seemingly low budget cctv cam movie. The timeline moved around a bit which seemed unecessary, wasn’t sure why the director chose to present the movie like that, but once you’ve got your head around where in the timeline the scene is, it’s a perfectly enjoyable movie. If you like Apollo 18, Cloverfield, The Ritual, chances are you’ll enjoy it. Recommend for any fan of the sci-fi genre.

A worthy but predictable movie
Verified purchase
Set mostly inside the generic space craft interior now so familiar ever since Kubrick's '2001' (of 50 years ago, can you believe it!) on a venture to Jupiter's moon Europa to recover samples from its icy surface, also to drill through that to the subsurface ocean, which may (of course!) host novel life.

The few exterior scenes were rather too obviously SFX/CGI, and the occasional surprise little surprise at all, given that the plot is fairly thin and derivative.
I would have welcomed more actual background science about that genuinely fascinating moon in place of mediocre melodrama, and hope that any future real mission there will in fact be better planned scientifically and space-engineering-wise!

Otherwise well-filmed and acted, so perfectly watchable during a couple of hours spare time.

Very good hard sci fi, nice plot twist, interestingly done
Verified purchase
This film is cleverly done and has a really nice plot twist, I'm not sure if I should post the spoiler of that plot twist here or not. It's a hard sci-fi, visually and in plot it's quite plausible in most places. It's got some interesting camera angles, everything is shot from angles where there are cameras aboard ship and in crew members helmets, it pulls this of quite well. It's done in the style of a documentary made from what little footage was recovered, it has little "interview" like segments with action between them and bits of explanation as well, it's one of these interviews that I regard as the plot twist, one of the interviews isn't quite what it seems, you only realise this in the last minutes of the film. The film doesn't have a vast amont of constant really spectacular effects but it has quite a lot and they are pretty good ones, it's not got anything like as many as a big blockbuster type film but being a sci-fi it it ofcourse isn't lacking in them. The language isn't too problematic, it can be set to english quite easily, and another good thing is that the special features are all in english (they were either english speech with german subtitles or vice-versa, it's been some weeks since I wathced this so cannot remember which), the language of the film can be set to english for the speech(can't remeber about whether the subtitles can be set to english).

No Subtitles !!
Verified purchase
Good film on a budget, but the lack of subtitles was a big NO NO for me. I like to watch all my films with subtitles, and I thought that the days of not having subtitles on DVD was long gone. It appears not and though no reflection on the film, I have knocked off a couple of stars for this omission. If subtitles do not matter to you, then I thonk you will find this a thought provoking film.

Quite a find! Must see if you like good sci fi
Verified purchase
Started watching it thinking it would be just be yet another low budget sci fi horror. Instead, there was a good plot, excellent actors, and unrelenting tension. Astronauts/cosmonauts going to Europa, Jupiter’s moon, where things go wrong. Eventually, the movie is about the people and about why space exploration is still a voyage into the unknown. Really good - highly recommended.
