An isolated lunar astronaut begins to lose his grip on reality in this cerebral sci-fi thriller with one heck of a twist.

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is just two weeks away from finishing a lengthy, lonely contract mining Earth's primary source of energy, Helium-3, on the dark side of the moon. Thanks to a glitch in the communications satellite, Sam's only companion on this trip is Gerty (voiced by Kevin Spacey), the base's unsophisticated computer, and the odd recorded message sent from home. As his contract nears termination, Sam starts suffering from crippling headaches and vivid hallucinations, which lead to a near-fatal accident in a lunar rover. But while he's recovering back at the base, he makes a shocking discovery: a younger version of himself has arrived to fulfil the same contract Sam started all that time ago. Is the second Sam just another hallucination or something altogether more sinister?

Winner of the BAFTA Award for Outstanding Debut By A British Director.

 Perfect old school scifi

| | See all Jonno74's reviews (5)

One of the best films ever made! And no mean feat on it's small independent budget!
For a first time feature film, Duncan Jones hits the mark. The balance of Science and personal drama is spot on. Sam Rockwell shows just how good he is with a brilliant portrayal of a man who's world is collapsing around him.
The visuals hark back to old school Scifi movies like Star Trek the Motion Picture and more so, Kubrick's 2001. It's all been achieved on a shoestring budget by making use of models over full CGI. The models are 'enhanced' by CGI, but the bare bones of all shots begins with the classic Model shot. And it works. Gives it a sense of reality a CGI model still can't quite capture.

I'm sad I missed this gem at the Cinema. I'd love to see it on the big screen, but on DVD it's still a great watch.

Bravo. It's a brave film to make in a time where people want flash, fast, slick Sci fi movies most of the time.

Atmospheric, unsettling, mysterious and propelled by a powerful, mult-faceted performance by the underrated Sam Rockwell this is breathtaking film. You might need to be a bit patient at first but once it gets going, it is excellent. One of my favourites I saw this year at the cinema, it is almost Alien-esque in its brilliance. Highly recommended!

 True science fiction at last

One of the best science fiction films I have seen in a long time for so many reasons.
This will be hailed as a classic in line with Silent Running, Soylent Green, Logan's Run. It asks so many questions just like good Sci Fi should.
Edge of the seat from beginning to end. Can't wait for Mute Duncan Jones' second film.

released without much fanfare this truly terrific film should be watched by all film fans.combining elements of 2001:a space odyssey and solaris,it really is a stunning treat.our local arthouse cinema had it on for a week.the demand for tickets was so great that it has been back on twice and i have yet to see any negative reviews.a thought provoking,mesmerising thrill ride that will stay in your mind for a long time.although most films i have seen sam rockwell in have been comedy,he proves he can do serious in a big way and his performance is superb.....don`t miss it.

 The Best Film of 2009

| | See all Matt2709's reviews (1)

I'm actually finding it rather hard to find an eloquent way to get how i feel about this film. All you need to know is that the acting is brilliant, the plot is well driven truly gripping and the soundtrack will stick in your head for weeks. I would even go to say the best film i have seen this year.
