Not quite what I expected,
This review is from: Moon [DVD]  (DVD)
Like everyone else here, I had heard all the hype surrounding this film ages before I managed to buy the dvd. It intrigued me as I am a fan of serious and thought provoking Sci-Fi that does not include horrendously mutated alien monsters.
Alas when I finally bought the dvd, slipped it into the player and sat back... I was less than impressed. Sure it held my attention, the acting was great and the setting and props gave you a sense that it could be happening not many years from now. But the story was a real let down.
The main twist came about halfway through the film and let me tell you, that's NOt where you want to put your twist. I guess there was other stuff you find out afterwards but come on, once you know why Sam is seeing another version of himself, every other point made is moot.
I waited and watched, hoping for an amazing twist at the end that would make the whole ride worth making, but it did not come. Instead everything that you had seen, everything that you thought was just a bit too daft to actually be happening... well let's just say it was a dissapointment.
I'm sorry to all the people who love this film, I truly appreciate clever and intelligent films and I'm sure for the most part this was one of them, however it just fell at the final hurdle in my mind.
