  Everything sci-fi should be

| | See all toxina90's reviews (162)

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

| | See all neiljabba's reviews (1)

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.

  Stellar!

The best film i've seen in a long time.
Sam Rockwell deserves on oscar for his role in what is simply a breathtaking motion picture.
I pre-ordered this as soon as I received a release date.
A very intelligent film which even though is slow moving for the first hour, is still emotional and very atmospheric.
Refreshing to see scaled model moon buggy's of yester-year instead of $100m budget flicks from Michael Bay.
Roll on 16th November.

  the moon is a harsh mistress

| | See all frankpoole's reviews (433)

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.

  2009 is the new 2001

| | See all IceColdInAshley's reviews (45)

Moon is a fantastic sci-fi exploit for film-fanatics who enjoyed cult classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey, where it focuses on the emotions of the characters, or just the one person as it seems in this masterpiece on Duncan Jones' debut. A film about loneliness, Sam Rockwell is fantastic as the lonely astronaut finishing his long contract on the Moon's surface for a company which harvests helium. Keeping him sane, is a well thought out mechanical companion named GERTY, softly voiced by Kevin Spacey, in which you can draw comparisons with the malfunctioning HAL 9000 in Kubrick's classic. However, is Sam alone on the Moon? Or is his hallucinations just his incredible loneliness taking it's toll on him, or is GERTY and the company covering up a terrible secret on the Lunar Surface? This film keeps you guessing until the very end, and it makes sense more every time you watch it. A perfect insight into how good old-fashioned low-budget talkies can be, 100% worth a look.

  Breath-taking!!

| | See all marsellus's reviews (91)

An absolutely breath-taking and thought provoking film. The cinematography, the art direction, the score, Sam Rockwell's best ever performance... There is not a single criticism I can level at this film. It's great when a sci-fi film is made with real maturity and conviction. (Can't describe the plot too much without spoiling the film!) Check this out if you like Solaris or Blade Runner.

  This was fantastic.

| | See all Deidara89's reviews (23)

I take no displeasure in calling this one of the best films of the year or even one of the best Sci-Fi films of the decade, It certainly was sublime. A fantastic plot with Sam Rockwell on form to add to his impressive career, I loved the fact there were very few special effects with more props and hand made scenery, with a $5 million budget it was done so well. In a film about what it really takes to be human and cope with loneliness , this is NOT one for the Transformers movie fans, so don't go bringing your Michael Bay brains into this one.

  Films CAN be brilliant without explosions

| | See all Tinker21's reviews (5)

I have to agree with mikefa; Moon is a true sci-fi film that raises many questions to the viewer and keeps them trying to understand what is really happening up until the end, instead of simply showing Megan Fox running in slow motion with massive CGI explosions behind her (sorry Michael Bay, your film was mediocre at best). I also have to say that even though this is said to be comparable to 2001, I personally didn't really see this. Moon is still a brilliant film, though, probably the best sci-fi I'll see in a long time. I really hope there's a blu-ray release, too

  one word: Awesome!

| | See all Gillis27's reviews (2)

This is a fantastic movie, great acting from Sam Rockwell and Kevin Spacey is brilliantly cast as the voice of GERTY. There was not a single thing i didn't like about this movie and thats almost impossible to say with the movies that get released these days!
The story is original and not at all over the top for a sci-fi movie, the score is both haunting and perfectly fits in with the atmosphere of the movie.
Duncan Jones has made a movie that you just dont see anymore, long may he continue to do so.
Basically SEE this movie and spread the word!
