Movie Reviews

Moon - A Nice Surprise
Steven Sly | Kalamazoo, MI United States | 08/23/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I really enjoyed this film a lot. I was worried that it was just going to be a re-working of the 70's film "Silent Running", but after the first 15 minutes or so you realize that this is a very different story. Sam Rockwell is great in the film as he pretty much has to carry the whole thing. As others have mentioned there are a few plot problems, the main one being why someone would be stationed all alone in a situation like this in the first place. Overall though I did not have too many issues with these things for the most part. I won't give any of the plot away, but if you like thoughtful science fiction that is not an action picture I would think you would like this."

"Sam Rockwell has chosen to play some strange roles in his career, but here he really manages to carry an entire film on his narrow shoulders (though to some extent helped by the calm voice of Kevin Spacey). Sam (played by Sam) is all alone on the Moon, nearing the end of his three-year contract; his sole companion is Gerty, a super intelligent AI that controls the various functions on their shared Moon-base. Sam is feeling the effects of the several year long isolation (there is something wrong with the communication antennas on the base, so he can't 'call home', so to speak). Sam looks forward to returning home to his wife and daughter, all the while performing his work on the base and living on a day-to-day-basis. The film is very quiet and calm, almost soothing, and reminds one much of both Solaris and the more usual suspects of Clarke. Interestingly, after a while, the film takes a turn for the psychological as Sam starts to discover that not all is as it is supposed to be. He starts feeling ill, and that someone is watching his every move. Then, the film suddenly reminded me a lot of one of my favourite films: Vanilla Sky, and that says a lot! There is not much more I can say without potentially spoiling parts of it, so I'll just highly recommend it if you are a fan of either of the mentioned films, or just mystical science-fiction in general.

Beautiful landscapes, a great plot and not to mention impressive acting from those involved makes this one of the finest films to come out of 2009. Four point five stars, without a doubt."

"Directed by: Duncan Jones
Starring: Sam Rockwell, Kevin Spacey
Running time: 97 min. R - 2009

The film "Moon" is sci fi psychological thriller that stars Sam Rockwell who has been contracted to work on the moon for three years. Along with a super computer (voiced by Kevin Spacey) Sam slowly becomes aware that his mission isn't what it seems to be. This movie offers enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of you seat throughout despite the minimal cast. I definitely recommend this film and its worth a rental.

Good."
