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.

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 Perfect Science Fiction Jan. 27 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This film restores my faith in the future of science fiction; it's not about action and instead uses the genre to provoke and explore facets of the human condition that would otherwise remain unknown. Visually it is a film that returns to the style of 1970s science fiction and even employs the craft of the master modelmaker of ALIEN's Nostromo and blends them with restrained CGI and a masterful soundtrack by Clint Mansell. All of these aspects reinforce a film that holds its own with essentially one actor, Sam Rockwell, who delivers an engaging and strong performance throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sci-Fi March 14 2010
By Harrison Koehli TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Don't read the spoilers for this film. If possible, don't read anything about it. Just watch it. I liked everything about this film: the premise, the script, the directing, the acting, the pace. Sam Rockwell does an amazing job. Every couple years a great indie SF film comes out, for example Primer, and Moon is exactly that. Futuristic, yet plausible in a sick kind of way. One of the best of the year.

By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Once in a while, a movie will stand out in my mind long after I've seen it. I saw Moon months ago, but I can still picture myself, sitting on the living room couch, frowning slightly at the television screen as I tried to figure out what, exactly was going on. You might think, reading this, that I didn't enjoy watching Duncan Jones' mesmerizing film. On the contrary, I loved it. It was confusing, yes, but it was so in the way that a carefully constructed puzzle or riddle is confusing at first and then, as you stick with it, as you concentrate and listen and watch, it becomes clear. And rewards you.

Moon is a mystery but it is also a science fiction film. Sam Bell, played by Sam Rockwell, works alone in a largely automated mining camp. His only companion--shades of 2001: A Space Odyssey--is a talking computer named GERTY and voiced by Kevin Spacey. It's a fairly simple situation, as far as sci-fi movies go--and things become more complicated only after Sam suffers an accident at the mine.

I won't tell you anything more of the story. I won't diminish your reward.

Moon is carefully constructed, the work of a patient filmmaker. Jones (son of David Bowie and formerly known as Zowie Bowie) demonstrates a maturity in his story telling that is sorely lacking in the works of many more experienced film makers. Moon is quiet, it builds slowly and with confidence, and it is imminently worth your time.

I am excited to have discovered an intriguing new voice in film. With Moon, that voice is little more than an insistent and important whisper, so far, but judging by the trailer for his next film, Source Code, Jones is quite willing and able to make himself heard.

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

Duncan Jones is an inventive, promising film maker (and David Bowie's son no less), so there's no argument about how cool he is, and his first feature film showed that quite well. Read more
