An excellent sci-fi spectacle with a mesmerizing performance by Sam Rockwell. It's further proof that Duncan Jones is one hell of a director of sci-fi thrillers (I loved Source Code). It looks terrific, it's thought-provoking and unpredictable, and Rockwell carries the movie through his intense performance. One of 2009's best, IMO. 3.5/4

Feels like an direct homage to classic sci-fi films such as: 2001, Silent Running and Alien. The story is isolated and unfolds like a mystery. It's more about ideas than anything else. Rockwell carries the whole movie with conviction and ease. The less you know about the plot the better your experience watching it will be.

Moon review

Much like Cast Away, Surrogates combined with Solaris and 2001: Space Odyssey. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) about to go home in a few weeks since his three-year contract is about to end at Lunar Industries' largely automated "Sarang" lunar base. He sees things and discovers the astronaut he saved just looks like him. The special effects is breathtaking while the setting/base impressive. Sam Rockwell) was just great in his role. Screenplay was fresh with some good lines: Sam Bell - "We're not programs Gerty, we're people." and Gerty - "I hope life on Earth is everything you remember it to be."The film however slows down in the middle and became interesting towards the conclusion. The image of the lady from the start was unexplained as well. Nevertheless, Moon is an entertaining psycholo...

"Moon" by Yojimbo

A lone astronaut working a mining operation on the moon starts seeing the face of a young woman and begins to question his sanity. Moon flies very much in the face of contemporary sci-fi. It has a very retro look, complimented perfectly by the use of beautifully crafted miniatures rather than the ubiquitous CGI and this retro feel is carried through to every aspect of the film. The sets are very reminiscent of the original Alien, the scenario echoes 70s eco sci-fi Silent Running combined with the themes of Solaris, it has the ominous electronic countdown of Outland and has a similar plot line to some aspects of Capricorn One; but it does so with such reverance and understanding of the genre it is far from a cheap carbon copy. Sam Rockwell puts in a great performance as the man alone (...?...

Marvelous Moon Madness

"Moon" is essentially "Cast Away" in space and a rather impressive film to boot. "Moon" exceeds as a drama, mystery and a sci-fi film. With a 15 million dollar budget, "Moon" shows you get a lot of a little. ( Michael Bay...please take note). This indie sci-fi movie takes cues from classic sci-fi movies of the 80's such as "2001: A Space Oydessy" and "Slient Running", yet is able create something incredibly unique and original. The directing from Duncan Jones is one of the most strongest debuts from a director in a long time. He could honestly be the next great sci-fi director. In my opinion, Sam Rockwell is the most underrated actor working today, with such memorable turns in "Snow Angels", "Choke", "The Green Mile", and "Galaxy Quest". He does a remarkable job in a award cailber perfor...

The trailer def hooked me. Gold Star to Alex for remembering silent running. Lump of coal for the "much better" comment.
Silent Running is a true classic.

Sam Rockwell is such a talented actor.Check out his wonderful proformance in "Snow Angels" if you dont believe me, I really hope this is the movie he shows people what he's made of. This role screams oscar but we all know this proformance doesnt have a shot of a nomination.
