  Boring

I could not get involved in this film at all, i found it dry, and very boring. I found myself waiting to see what this guy did next, the answer you ask? Nothing much.

  Moon.

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

A well-made addition into the sci-fi scene, Duncan Jones' debut film combines his love of classic 1970s sci-fi pieces (notably 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris) and crafts an emotive, involving and satisfying piece of cinema.

Anchored by leading man Sam Rockwell's absorbing performance as lunar worker Sam Bell. Nearing the end of a solo 3 year stint mining and with only the central computer GERTY (Kevin Spacey) he is almost home. However, with only 3 weeks left an unexpected discovery will suddenly challenge his reality and perception of himself. Exploring sci-fi concepts such as humanity, identity, and technology the overall film satisfies thanks to it's minimalist approach, concentrating on Sam and his journey and letting the ideas mill around in the background for the viewer to take in on their own. Overall, while the 'truth' may not be quite as twisty or unexpected for seasoned sci-fi fans it's nontheless effectively done.

For a low budget film the effects are very well done - clearly models, but models of the highest quality and carefully shot, and comparative lack of CGI is refreshing - although there is a featurette on the effects work that reveals there's a bit more than you might think! And it's the ideas within the script that matter more anyway. Even though the film also looks very nice on Blu-ray. Recommended for both the avid sci-fi fan and those who like something different once in a while.

  Intelligent, thought provoking and a rare gem.

This film may be a low-budget sci-fi film but do not let that put you off. The plot is intelligent. Sam Rockwell gives a stunning performance and Kevin Spacey is great as GERTY the computer.

It is thought provoking despite being slightly predictable in places and is somewhat reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey or the original Outer Limits stories.

The vehicles are not done with any CGI and instead are done with models. But I feel that they look so much better then CGI and are far more believable.

It is hard to find science fiction films that are as intelligently thought provoking as this these days.

The picture quality is of a high standard and I highly recommend it. It is easily one of the best science fiction films in years and one of the best films of 2009.

One of the best films, of any genre, that I've ever seen.

Do I really need to say any more?

one of the finest films i have seen in a while. I'm glad to see that someone finally figured out how to make a sci-fi classic. The best sci-fi film since serenity.

"Moon" is a great movie which has a very unique and memorable plot. The film stars Sam Rockwell (Wild Bill from "The Green Mile") as an astronaut who has spent almost three years on the moon mining helium-3 for "Lunar Industries". As it is coming to the end of his three year long shift he becomes desparate to return home to his wife and child. As things begin to unfold Sam realizes that things aren't as simple as he assumed they were.
Sam Rockwell gives a truly touching performance as Sam Bell and Kevin Spacey does a great job providing the voice of Sams loveable robotic companion. The scenes which show the moons surface and planet Earth are gorgeous and great to show off your television.
"Moon" is a fantastic film which is well worth a viewing!

  Trippy Sci-Fi Mystery

| | See all Rambo456's reviews (1259)

Found this movie to be enjoyable aswell as engaging.
The story was good and interesting, with only a few dips in the narrative.
Sam Rockwell was brilliant in it. And Kevin Spacey is perfect as the voice for the Robot.
Probably not an easy watch if ur looking for a fast paced sci-fi movie, this one has more of a Reflective feel to it.

  The best sci-fi in decades.

| | See all MarkeyMan90's reviews (19)

This is a supurb debut movie from director Duncan Jones, 'Moon' is a harrowing tale of paranoia and isolation. Brilliant performances from the main cast make this a true British gem of a film.

Onto the Blu-ray itself the picture quality is fairly nice in places, especially when you are shown these great wide shots of the Moon being mined for Earth's primary energy source.
The sound is brilliant with the awe-inspiring score from Clint Mansell, which wraps the film in such atmosphere and tension (spectacular on 5.1 surround sound).

The special features are also excellent, with most of them in HD which is a really nice touch and you've got yourself a brilliant film with a Blu-ray edition it deserves, enjoy.
