Critic Review - NPR.org

Start calculating the costs to Lunar Industries of its singular form of devaluing, and Moon's central premise stops making sense.

That's like saying you refuse to believe The Lord of the Rings just because you don't know the exact location of Middle Earth.

Maybe Sci-fi without sword fights and drooling monsters isn't your thing. Maybe Moon doesn't make sense to you because you are intellectually shallower than the movie you were watching.

What an awful review. Someone find whoever hired this guy and flick them in the eye.

Wow. What did you expect when you decided to watch a SCI-FI MOVIE?
Who the hell calculates the actual business prospects of the movie their watching, and bases their review off of THAT?

They were mining Helium-3 which is extremely rare on Earth, so it must be cost-effective for them. Pay attention.

He isn't talking about Helium-3. His reference is to Lunar Industries' "singular form of devaluing," i.e. its cloning program. Pay attention.

[Spoiler] I think Craig F. was trying to say that the returns on Helium 3 would make the human cloning program cost-effective. Why hire and train new personnel if you can just clone the same person? We have no idea what the costs of cloning would be. The plot remains intact and beautiful. Pay attention.

Still a bad reading of Bob M. Loved the movie, btw. But a bad reading is a bad reading.

Id love to see Bobs "calculations". I wonder where he gets his data. Especially his "data" on the perfect clean energy source and the future costs of cloning.
