Product Description

From the Back Cover

The year is 2038 and a war rages on between multi-national corporations for control of the universe. Felix Stone is the internal affairs investigator for the Galactic Mining Corporation, who must go undercover in order to track down hijackers. His mission is to pose as one of a group of Company prisoners being sent to Moon 44 to test pilot experimental helicopters but the prisoners must depend on a group of station-based navigators to survive the flights.

Tensions flare between the two groups, with lethal consequences and Stone is forced to fight on both sides of the battle, as he struggles to save them all from annihilation.

Format: DVD
Although this movie is not very good, it is entertaining. Being made in the early 90s the look of the movie is still quite good. Moon 44 is set in the future, whereby moons are important for the mining industry. Michael Pare is an undercover agent, who investigates the disappearance of several moons. Because of the disappearing, pilots are hard to find. That is when ex-prisoners are brought in to fly. The pilots are navigated by a bunch of whiz kids, but there is a lot of friction between the two groups. This really contributes to the tension in the movie. The acting of most actors is good, except for the main character played by Michael Pare. His performance is really awful, lacks any emotion and is outplayed by literally every other actor in the movie. As the whiz kids Tyler and Cookie, Dean Devlin and Stephen Geoffreys have the most interesting roles. Dean Devlin plays his character very natural and Stephen Geoffreys' character even develops during the movie (that haircut!). On the other hand the main problem is that the bad guys have tattooed "BAD" on their foreheads and I do not mean solely the prisoners. So there goes the surprise. Okay, there are some gaps in the script, but in the end I enjoyed watching Moon 44 and that's the only thing that counts.

Not a bad little 1990 scifi movie and from Roland Emmerich but not great either so don't expect any Alien or blockbuster epic. In the UK this movie has now been released twice as at the time of writing (2 June 2012). I will give differences below as I own both releases.

Differences:
Release 1 released 17 March 2003 by Hollywood DVD Ltd, ASIN B00008RWV4, cat no HOLDD275, EAN 5017633202751
Movie is 4:3 Full Frame apart from the credits section.
Sound: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo (was made in Dolby Stereo)
Run Time: 95"32'
Extras: None, only scene selection. Amazon listing and DVD product state a trailer is included but as per actual disc there is no trailer. Strangely side 2 of my disc copy has a FBI warning (it's a UK release) followed by colour test bar with sound warning for full 95+mins of disc.

Release 2 released 15 December 2008 by Boulevard Entertainment Ltd, ASIN B001KTRFK8, cat no BVAR0011, EAN 5060179610115
Movie is full 2.35:1 Widescreen throughout.
Sound: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Run Time: 95"52'
Extras: None, only scene selection.

So the better DVD is the latest 2008 Boulevard print, its widescreen and the reason for the slightly longer run time is it has the original Spectrum Entertainment Group-Warner Bros. Pictures Presents A CineVox Release production logos at the beginning, these were omitted from the 2003 print.

Moon 44 is one of Roland Emmerich's early movies. The story is quite simply (maybe a touch too simple).
It's the year 2038, large inter-galactic corporations fight against each other for control over moons, which have become the last source of minerals for Earth. The Galactic Mining Corp., which has lost a number of operations already, and whose last operation happens to be Moon 44 sends in Michael Pare as undercover agent to discover why the previously lost Moons' mining shuttles didn't return to Earth but instead vanished into space. His cover are a bunch of convicts which are 'hired' to provide Moon 44's last line of defence. Pare uncovers the plot; the convicts become a unified force and save the Moon from attack and manage to escape at the same time. That's the story in a nutshell.
Occasionally you can catch glimpses of features, Emmerich uses in his later Sci-fi movies. What I did like was the set design and some of the special effects. But apart from that, there is no real plot, the movie is packed with clichés, the hero comes over like a copy from some B-rated Western and there is not much of an ending either.
