Product Description

Product Description

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the completion of his 3-year-long contract with Lunar Industries, mining Earth's primary source of energy on the dark side of the moon. Alone with only the base's vigilant computer Gerty (voiced by Oscar-Winner Kevin Spacey, 1999 Best Actor, American Beauty) as his sole companion, Bell's extended isolation has taken its toll. His only link to the outside world comes from satellite messages from his wife and young daughter. He longs to return home, but a terrible accident on the lunar surface leads to a disturbing discovery that contributes to his growing sense of paranoia and dislocation so many miles away from home. Moon is an engrossing, intelligent sci-fi thriller that ranks with genre classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

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.

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.

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.

This was a surprise for me as I'd been waiting for a "good" science fiction film for a while, a few pretenders but most lacked the impact of a good cast, and an interesting storyline.

Directed by Duncan Jones (David Bowies son) he's gone for a traditional model animation rather than the big budget CGI effects some of the studios prefer, the visual impression is still more than good enough (we've come a long way since thunderbirds)

Cast wise we have a familiar supporting actor in the shape of Sam Rockwell who plays Sam Bell (best known for his rather perky performance in The Green Mile as "Wild Bill"). Here he's a much more refined character playing Sam the astronaut who is on his own on a lunar mining plant on a "moon", but with GERTY a computer (Kevin Spacey) who helps him keep things running.

Sam's on a three year shift and nearing the end of his placement, however it soon becomes clear there is much more going on that a simple work placement. Sam does everything a normal person does he shaves, washes and even keeps up to date with events back on Earth via video recorded messages from his wife "Tess" (played by Dominique McElligott) There is no live signal to earth, so all messages are recorded. Later into the film the reasons for this are revealed.

Moon isn't a big budget Hollywood production, and in many ways it's all the better for it a small cast and we have a good storyline here which holds your attention.

The cast put in an excellent performance esp Sam Rockwell who really gets into the lead part in a convincing way, and Kevin Spacey is just about the perfect voice actor choice for GERTY his downbeat laid back voice is simply superb for this film.

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!

A haunting and thought-provoking exploration of the human condition that pays homage to the great classic science fiction films like 2001 without ripping them off. Rockwell delivers an outstanding performance as the lonely, humbled and repentant astronaut trying to make sense of the confusion around him, Spacey's understated vocals as the voice of GERTY are perfectly pitched, and the music is superb - a mixture of icily repetitive and insistent electronica reminiscent of the best of the great 80's synth artists and heartbreakingly beautiful piano interludes. I bought the CD soundtrack immediately, and play it frequently. I can't wait for the DVD release of Duncan Jones' remarkable debut, and am very much looking forward to his next film.
