Critic Reviews for Moon
Start calculating the costs to Lunar Industries of its singular form of devaluing, and Moon's central premise stops making sense.
A well-assembled sci-fi thriller.
Moon actually gets a little dull in the later reels, just when it should be peaking in mystery and tension.
A cue to the responsibility of filmmakers in a time when most seldom trust their audiences to think about answers, and asks questions that paralyze us in intricate fascination long after the final shot has left an imprint.
Rockwell's certainly up for the challenge of playing multiple roles, but ultimately, he's just yammering to himself. This movie has half an idea and, and the end, tries to convince you it had seven.
Audience Reviews for Moon
An amazingly good hard sci fi movie. Not fantasy sci fi . . just goo sci fi . . an excellent film with Sam Rockwell putting on a great performance. If you want good psychological sci fi movie this is it.
A very interesting science-fiction, clever and well constructed, that boasts a solid performance by Sam Rockwell and a noteworthy debut direction by David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones.
Simple, tense, and wonderful. Sam Rockwell is kind of the man. So is Kevin Spacey's voice.

|Sam Bell:||Gerty, am I a clone?|
|Gerty:||We could run some tests. [a beat] I haven?t reported anything to central, Sam. They don't know you were recovered alive from the accident.|
|Sam Bell:||Recovered alive? What do you mean? Why haven't you reported to central?|
|Gerty:||I'm here to keep you safe, Sam. I want to help you. Are you hungry?|
