Science fiction can encompass many genres--suspense, horror, action-adventure, romance, even comedy--but director Duncan Jones's Moon doesn't fit neatly into any of them. This smart, provocative film has no aliens or cool spaceships, and the effects (mostly consisting of model vehicles lumbering across the lunar surface) aren't all that special; instead, the material is character- and story-driven, centering on an excellent, multilayered performance by Sam Rockwell. The scene is some undetermined point in the future. Rockwell plays Sam Bell, an employee of Lunar Industries, the company responsible for mining a fusion energy source called Helium-3, which is vital to Earth's efforts to reverse a serious energy crisis and can only be found on the far side of the Moon. Sam is all by himself, and as he nears the end of his three-year contract, the solitude is starting to get to him ("Three years is a long haul," he says. "Way, way, way too long. I'm talking to myself on a regular basis"); his only contact with his wife and daughter back home comes through the occasional video messages he exchanges with them, while his sole interaction on the Moon is with GERTY 3000, a computer voiced by Kevin Spacey (and an obvious parallel to 2001: A Space Odyssey's HAL 9000). Things start to go seriously sideways when Sam crashes his vehicle while out inspecting one of the giant Helium-3 harvesters. He comes to in the base infirmary, seemingly none the worse for the wear; but an unnerving surprise awaits him when he goes back to check out the accident site, and the resulting complications occupy the rest of the movie. Fans of 2001, Solaris, and other cerebral sci-fi will enjoy figuring out what's going on; others will find it slow-moving and tedious. Either way, Moon, which was made quickly and on a relatively low budget, is well worth a look. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant 10 April 2010
Most good movies have a pivotal moment where the film reveals its true meaning. Without spoiling the film, that moment in Moon is so poignant and moving that it had tears rolling down my face. It was almost as if those simple words "I just want to go home" reach out to all of us in some spiritual way. I watched it over and over again. Beautiful.
This is one of the best films I've seen in a long long while. Sensitively made with a terrific score, it truly hit the mark for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable 14 April 2011
I bought this film as I had heard it was written by David Bowies son, Duncan Jones. I was dubious as I'm not usually into Sci-Fi but the reviews were good so I decided to give it a go. I won't go into the plot as I'm sure many other reviewers already have. I would just say that if you're thinking of getting it, do. It was intriguing, mind bending & thought provoking. A very interesting and enojyable film.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ORIGINAL 22 Aug 2010
An intriguing film exploring negative and positive aspects of humanity - human exploitation alongside human kindness and selflessness. So brilliantly acted - I would have expected to have been bored watching mainly one actor but instead completely captivated. As much as I enjoy sci-fi action films, so refreshing to see something more gentle, which did not rely on loads of CGI special effects. I loved the eighties type presentation which made me think of Star Wars (the proper films) and even Red Dwarf.

A film which created suspense and tension, warmth and humour and also kept me second guessing all the time. Excellent special features, not to be missed. It is a film which needs a couple of viewings; although not bored the first time I saw it - I enjoyed it even more the second time. Be patient - you will be rewarded. Brilliant and original.

4.0 out of 5 stars thought-provoking and moving 16 Jan 2011
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
The first copy I bought of this film would not play without the commentary, so I would advise anyone only to buy it when you can get a refund!
However I since got another copy which does play, and felt I should change my review, as it really is a very good film, very sad, but also making us think in important ways about the implications of cloning and what it is to be human. As a big fan of Sam Rockwell I was very pleased to see him often on screen in two roles at once - this does add up to an epic amount of screen time! His double role shows his incredible skill and naturalness as an actor. It may be that four stars is ungenerous, but I find its emphasis on solitude isn't quite transcended in the memory, and it leaves me with a feeling of bleakness. The music is very effective but also rather disconsolate. In a sense this is absolutely right, but I'm probably not a true science fiction fan. At all events, it is well worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT 12 Oct 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER

It was an excellent movie on all levels. There were some scientific stuff going on that was not brought out. Clones are not as good as the originals. They tend to have defects and die young. It is not a perfected science.

In this movie we see some of the aspects incorporated but never stated: testing of the clone when revived and disposal after 3 years. Today we are speculating that He3 mining on the moon could produce fusion energy in the future. I believe that was what the mining operation was doing, although not much was stated. It has several similarities to 2001, most have been listed. The most important one was that this was not an unreasonable science fiction with a long list of impossibilities, but rather a work which keeps within the realm of science fact, the way Arthur would have wanted it.

The idea that they made the computer similar to HAL 9000 is not unreasonable. In fact I fully expect any NASA computer with the capabilities of the HAL 9000 to be named the same after the fictional work. The only thing I would have changed in the movie would be to show a glimpse of Sam viewing 2001 while on the space station.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent Sci-fi film 16 Aug 2010
By Alex
This is not an all action alien blasting action adventure sci-fi so if that is what you're looking for steer well clear. For those that do enjoy more slow paced, thoughtful movies this is a gem. Explores subjects such as: isolation, loneliness, personality and identity. The acting is superb throughout, as is the special effects, set design and direction.

Essentially a superb film, well worth seeing.

Love this film. Zoe Bowie made a great film with a couple of characters and not much budget. The music is excellent and the blu ray quality worth it

I so enjoyed this at its (limited due to the average Harry Potter film) cinema release. Worth noting that despite the low budget it was made during the writers strike so despite the low budget it had some great people working on the visuals and sound and it looks and feels great. The music is also exceptional (by the requiem for a dream guy).

Sam Rockwell's acting performance is genuinely superb.

It's best to see this film without seeing any spoilers (like the 1 reveiw that has beaten me to it). There are no stunning new sci-fi ideas here (I haven't seen one for a long time) but it is so rare that a vision of the future is portrayed in such a human way, with character(s?) you genuinely like and care about. I was engrossed all the way through and genuinely moved.

I love sci-fi, I love the big budget lets blow s*** up sci-fi and I love the low budget thinking sci-fi, this falls into the later category and at 5th August it is the film I have enjoyed the most in 2009.

And my girlfriend liked it too!
