TV movies don't get much better than this

Hollywood would have you believe that the only way to enjoy a good action movie is on the silver screen. Exploding Sun was a brilliant 2 part sci-fi action drama which IMO dispells that myth. With an excellent cast of familiar faces from shows such as The Strain and the much underated Dark Matter and a cool story, the film kept you at the edge of your seat even at times throwing up some surprising twists, deaths and laughs along the way. Despite the lower budget of a big franchise movie, the editing, music and effects from start to finish were believable enough to pull you into a real sense of both wild space sequences, earth based solar storms and an overall global catastrophe. Grab a bag of popcorn, turn off the lights and enjoy. I highly recommend.

Basic stuff like the pilot is pulling and heaving on the flight controls .. in space, I mean come on, we are in low earth orbit she says as the outside view shows the ship and the whole of earth in the background.

earth to the moon in a couple of mins, friction in mission control is akin to kids in the playground of a school, the paths the story takes are so obvious it makes me groan when they act it out in amateur dramatics.

one star, trash.
