5.0 out of 5 stars Pure hard sci-fi for the fans! Jan. 13 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Moon is the best sci-fi movie in a long time. Duncan Jones, son of David (Bowie) has scripted and directed a wonderful thinking man's space movie. Sam Rockwell, playing the only resident of the moon, handles pretty near the entire movie and captivates you every step of the way. Kevin Spacey voices the computer, Gerty, an obvious homage to Douglas Rain's voicing of H.A.L. Spacey does a fantastic job, and Jones adds the touch of emoticons -- when Gerty says something, his screen displays the appropriate smiley, frowny, or what-have-you. Sometimes these emoticons reveal things that Gerty himself didn't want to communicate. Indeed, Gerty's motives will be questioned the entire movie, thanks partially to Spacey's creepy voice.

Sam Rockwell is Sam Bell, an employee of Lunar Industries over 100 years from now. Poverty on Earth no longer exists thanks to the Moon, and its ample deposits of helium3, which is used in fusion reactors. Sam maintains the equipment and gathers the helium3 from the giant harvesters scouring the surface of the moon. He then sends the helium3 home via capsule. There is no real-time communication with Earth, however, only recorded messages, due to a faulty satellite. Bell is feeling horribly lonely. He has been on the Moon for 3 years and his contract expires in 2 weeks. All he wants is to see his wife and child again. Paranoia and strange hallucinations are starting to set in.

All this sets in motion a story that twists and turns, and weaves information skillfully. Threads and clues are left for the viewers, who must question everything they see on screen. Sam too will question reality, question his surroundings, his existance, and his purpose. Sometimes stirring, sometimes mindblowing, Moon is never boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant SF Feb. 23 2010
Format:DVD
Moon is one of the finest science fiction films of recent years. From its lovely special effects work, largely done with real models, to its script and characters. Sam Rockwell gives an extremely good performance in the lead role. And just when you think you know how things are going to end up, Moon surprises you by going further. Excellent and highly recommended.

In a not-so-distant future, Earth's energy is being supplied through extraction of Helium-3 from the Moon. Sam Rockwell plays Sam Bell, a space miner whose job is to make sure that the massive mining machines keep running and to ship the fuel they extract back to Earth. He's at the tail end of a three year stint, and can't wait to go home -- and Gerty 3000, his robot companion whose design and mission is a significant twist from that of Hal 9000 (of 2001 - A Space Odyssey), seems worried he is beginning to lose focus on the mission. It turns out Sam has much bigger issues to worry about.

The German philosopher Martin Heidegger wrote that in an age of technology, where everything is treated as a resource, we ourselves become just another means to an end. We think of technology as our servant, but humanity itself becomes another means to an end, a cog in the globalized technological machine.

Director Duncan Jones has created a profound yet simple and small science fiction film that thematizes questions regarding the impact of technology on human life, how it affects human relations to each other, even what it means to be human. The film feels like a return to some of the most intriguing science fiction of the seventies and the eighties, films like Soylent Green, Silent Running, Alien, and

5.0 out of 5 stars pitch perfect Aug. 7 2010
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
What a sleeper of a sci-fi movie! It's way cool, way intense, way intelligent, way well acted and way Spacey--Kevin that it who plays the voice of Hal...I mean, Gerty.

Basically, it looks like Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey but it's so much more than that. You actually feel like you're on the moon with some terrific scenes of the lunar surface. The light and shadow they work in is simply amazing.

Then there's Sam Rockwell's tour de force playing the lone astronaut sent to the moon to man a "mining" operation up there. I won't spoil it for anyone but he plays his roles (yes, that's with an "s") far beyond anything you've seen in any evil twin story.

Then there's Kevin Spacey's voice. You'll have flashbacks to 2001's Hal but in a better twist he's a helpful robotic voice.

The extras too are exactly what you'd want in a DVD. Besides a couple of commentary tracks, we get the rundown on how they created the visual effects (mainly from models and it shows giving the picture a far grittier realism).

There's also two Q&A sessions where you'll be confused as to whether they cloned the director Duncan Jones. In the better Q&A at NASA's Space Center in Houston we get far more the nuts and bolts of the film. In this one DJ looks like a roly poly grad student.
In the Sundance Festival Q&A with various members of the production crew there's someone channeling Sam Rockwell's character complete with beard and it's DJ. You'll do a double take but that laugh gives him away. That Q&A seemed so much like the usual--dumb questions from moviegoers. Did nothing for me but contrasted with the NASA Q&A it was fun to watch.

That's not all. You also get a 28-min. film called Whistle about a contract killer who hits his marks with the help of laser technology...and it has a nice twist. Having said that, the no-lipped actress who played the killer's wife was sheer awful in her role. Could they not have cast someone better?

movie to come around in ages. This isn't your alien invading or robot destroying type of space movie. This is the kind that makes you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, and the realism of the plots topic makes it actually...
I enjoy movies like this one, which might take my understanding of reality and distort it just enough to make me think about a subject in a different light
