Exploding Sun is a science fiction thriller movie that was produced in 2013 by Reelz. The film is directed by Michael Robison and stars David James Elliott, Anthony Lemke, and Natalie Brown. The story of Exploding Sun revolves around a solar flare that threatens to destroy the world. The flare has the potential to cause massive earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and massive tsunamis. Scientists are challenged to come up with a solution to stop the disaster that threatens to wipe out the entire human race.

David James Elliott stars as Dr. Michael Reynolds, an astrophysicist who fronts the U.S. State Department's delegation at a global conference to monitor the potential damage from the solar flare. He is tasked with finding a way to stop the flare and come up with a plan to save the world. He works with other experts to devise a plan that involves detonating a bomb on the surface of the sun, that will stop the mass ejection of particles that is causing the flare.

Anthony Lemke stars as Alex Kittner, a scientist leading the team that must transport the bomb to the sun's surface. The team's mission is to travel to the sun on a massive spacecraft to land the bomb on it. Once the bomb lands, it will detonate and cause a chain reaction that will stop the solar flare from destroying Earth.

When the team reaches the spacecraft, they find that there is a group of terrorists who have infiltrated the mission and plan to use it as an opportunity to attack the United States. The mission is then divided into two groups, one that goes to the sun to drop off the bomb and the other that stays behind to deal with the terrorists.

Natalie Brown, on the other hand, plays the character of Chloe Edwards, a top official at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Chloe is tasked with the responsibility of dealing with the terrorist attack on the mission to the sun. At first, Chloe's role seems to be minimal, but as the situation gets more complicated, her importance in saving the world becomes more apparent.

Exploding Sun is a thrilling science fiction story that keeps its audience on the edge of their seats. The special effects are impressive, and the storyline is well thought out. It effectively portrays the panic and chaos that would ensue if such an event were to take place in the real world.

The movie also explores broader themes such as the limitations of technology and the repercussions of meddling with the natural world. The movie's concept offers a reality that may be unlikely, but not impossible. At the heart of the story is the importance of teamwork, leadership, and sacrifice; themes that resonate with most viewers.

Overall, Exploding Sun is an exciting and thrilling movie that leaves its viewers with a newfound appreciation for planet Earth. Despite the fictional nature of the movie, it serves as a stark reminder that our planet is still extraordinarily fragile, and we must protect it at all costs.
