Audience Reviews for Moon 44

½

One of the most confusing, unappealing sci-fi films I've ever seen. In this early Roland Emmerich disaster, super-badass-chainsmoker 'Felix Stone' takes a quick twenty minute jaunt through the Blade Runner set (music and all) and then proceeds to a mining station in space where a group of ex-cons-turned pilots and a bunch of teenage boy navigators reenact scenes from 'Sleepers' and 'Top Gun' while they wait (apparently) for some sort of invasion from a rival mining corporation, in what amounts to THE ALAMO: IN SPACE! Emmerich's early script writing philosophy; the cut and paste method. If he likes, it goes in!... no matter how badly juxtaposed against the preceding or following scene! Lighthearted fun followed by a teenage boy's suicide? Intense action packed dogfight following a teenage boy's alluded shower rape? Sure! Fortunately Mr. Emmerich was able to sort out his vision for the perfect summer blockbuster by the time of Independence Day... Good for us.

Super Reviewer

Pointless low budget Sci-Fi with lifeless performances and a plot reminiscent of but simpler than a mid 1980s arcade game. It does have a certain oppressive atmosphere but little else.

Super Reviewer

Reasonably decent sci-fi action movie, it's not awesome or anything, but it moved along at a nice pace, some good special effects, no bad acting (no great acting either).
