December 16, 2009
A well-assembled sci-fi thriller.
December 16, 2009
A frequently engrossing science fiction story given a particular tension and seriousness by its moral inquiry into what it means to be fully human and alive.
December 16, 2009
Moon actually gets a little dull in the later reels, just when it should be peaking in mystery and tension.
December 3, 2009
Sam Rockwell's work is a light on the dark side of "Moon." It's not that the man behind the curtain isn't worth attention, it's that he's just not as interesting. It's predictably plotted, but unpredictably mournful and elegiac a la Philip K. Dick.

November 26, 2009
One of those rare, intelligent, thought-provoking science fiction films that come along less often than a blue moon, but there are some problems with the narrative and the science.

Moon is a timely reminder of what readers of analog already know: that science fiction can be (gasp!) intelligent and thoughtful . . .
October 10, 2009
A moody, brooding low-key sci-fi feature that makes the most of the eeriness and solitude of long-distance separation to explore some very poignant themes of memory and existence.

At the heart of this you've got this fantastic concept and a fantastic performance from Rockwell. It's absolutely tense. It's absolutely admirable.

This is science fiction at its stimulating best.

October 8, 2009
By halfway the film starts to feel like a mere exercise, one more effort to get maximum value from limited resources. Too much machinery, not enough dread.

There might even be a touch of his father in there -- ''your circuit's dead, there's something wrong, can you hear me, Major Tom?'' It is a well-built, concentrated movie with a brain and a purpose.

October 8, 2009
An eccentric sci-fi which cleverly deconstructs the mythology of the Star Treks and Star Wars which have colonised the future of our imaginations with their glamour, self-importance and operatic sound tracks.
October 8, 2009
Clearly inspired by the great science fiction films of the last century, Moon still manages to be awe-inspiring and strikingly original in its own right.
October 8, 2009
While there are echoes of Kubrick's 2001 classic, Moon has enough that's original and surprising to make it worth recommending, and not only to diehard fans of sci-fi films.

Much more than simple escapism, Moon may not be for everyone, but it is certainly a very good film that will inspire intriguing post-cinema conversation.

October 2, 2009
The filmmakers say they wanted to make a sci-fi story within their limited budget, so used ingredients that would satisfy both. Sadly, the screenplay is a bit low on other things as well, like meaningful content.
October 2, 2009
An interesting idea goes astray in this unusual sci-fi thriller in which Sam Rockwell's astronaut Sam becomes captive in the recesses of his own mind.
September 15, 2009
Moon is the kind sci-fi film you rarely see any more; subtle and intelligent. Yet it gets stuck on the launch pad to greatness.

In an era when grey-shaded Hollywood drudge can cost hundreds of millions and deliver nothing, Moon stands out -- and it does so with dignity.
