Summary: Sam Bell is nearing the end of his contract with Lunar. He's been a faithful employee for 3 long years. His home has been Sarang, a moon base where he has spent his days alone, mining Helium 3.
Feels like one of those great classic Golden Age science fiction short stories blown up into a feature film: lean, brainy, and creative. Really enjoyed it, and it's an absolute must for anyone who misses hard sci-fi.
Moon demonstrates that a fairly slow and limited plot doesn't really matter if you do it right. The best part isn't even Sam Rockwell, who is fantastic but that performance alone wouldn't carry the film. Moon is great because of it's atmosphere, which allows Duncan Jones to slowly drip into your head questions that are in the best tradition of "hard" science fiction.
A realistic Sci-Fi movie with great character development. One that isn't caught up in special effects but instead uses them as a means to enhance the story. At times it can be rather slow and once it reaches a certain point its all too easy to piece together the ending. However the whole movie is enjoyable due to Sam Rockwell's performance in a double role. He made the movie possible. I don't know a lot of other actors that could pull this off. Sam should have been nominated for an Oscar.
A great hard sci-fi story which questions the nature of humanity (like all the best bits of science fiction) with a great central performance by Sam Rockwell. The special effects are highly impressive for a low-budget film and the set design is wonderful too. A brilliant score by Clint Mansell and good pacing too. Some dialogue is a little on-the-nose with regards to the themes and it could stand to be a little longer to flesh out a few things, otherwise a good, if small-scale, bit of sci-fi.
A surprisingly thoughtful and intelligent science-fiction movie. You don't see a lot of them anymore so it's always a joy when you get one. As well-written as it is, however, the key to Moon's success is Sam Rockwell's performance, which is pretty much the only one in the movie. Duncan Jones rather smartly sidesteps the typical moves this kind of picture would take, and the result is a subdued, intelligent exercise in hard sci-fi.
Movie had a lot of potential that just wasn't reached, but it was still a great sci-fi suspense film. I wish the twist was saved a bit longer as the movie seemed to play it's hand a little quick. Still, a must see for just about everybody.
Sam Rockwell gives an amazing performance as Sam Bell.The visual ode to classic Sci-Fi movies especially 2001, A Space Odyssey is a nice touch.I liked the touch of humor they added with the computer.It kept the picture from getting to heavy.This film asks us to think about some pretty deep subjects as all great Sci-Fi should.
After blundering across it unexpectedly I quickly discovered that Moon is a thoughtful, precise and exquisitely crafted sci-fi experience. Focusing directly inwards to an individual within such an expansive frontier provides a intensely human perspective on an unfamiliar environment, desolate and corporate in equal measures. The limiting budget is also handled expertly, Moon remains completely visually engaging throughout. Plot developments are also superbly paced, left me completely engrossed.
