Moon Movie Reviews
User reviews on Moon
Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is a miner on the dark side of the moon. His only companion is a living computer named GERTY, with an emoticon face and measured, ambiguous voice by Kevin Spacey. Sam is counting the days until he gets to go home, but matters start to go wrong. The film comes down to Rockwell acting by himself, when history has proven that Rockwell is at his best as a sidekick.
Not really a movie, more of a two part Outer Limits. The production values, sets, and limited special effects were more in line with a television show than todays movies. The story was moderately interesting, though vaguely derivitive of Blade Runner, and the acting was good. Not a bad effort but save your money and wait for it to come out on Sci Fi channel.
Producing a science fiction film on a budget of $5 million has to be like eating steak on hot dog prices but incredibly director Duncan Jones has done it! “Moon,” his first feature film, uses an assemblage of miniature models, carefully applied CGI, near perfect production values and a superb performance by Sam Rockwell, takes — or returns — cinematic science fiction to some fascinating places.
