Start calculating the costs to Lunar Industries of its singular form of devaluing, and Moon's central premise stops making sense.
December 16, 2009
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.
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.

Suffice it to say, Mr. Rockwell more than carries the film, with a nuanced performance that speaks volumes about the fears of alienation and corruption that always seem to accompany our literature about the future.
May 23, 2018
Directed and conceived by Duncan Jones, Moon is quiet and disturbing, yet manages to be hopeful in the face of overwhelmingly grim conditions.
May 9, 2015
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.

Solaris and Blade Runner meet Silent Running. A movie with both a brain and a heart.
November 8, 2012
Intriguing, imaginative, and thematically ambitious, Moon gives ample proof that Jones is a serious talent, pushing his concepts into intellectually and spiritually challenging territory.
September 29, 2012
It's a film that won't fail to move or excite anyone who's ever cast their eye skywards and let themselves wonder.
March 28, 2011
Sam Rockwell should have been nominated for Best Actor at least twice.
August 14, 2010
Simple and alien-free example of the sci-fi genre. Slow, but there are so many details deserving attention, the chance to take them all in one only enhances the experience.
July 20, 2010
Someday, Rockwell will get his Oscar due, I have no doubt. But I bet that when that day comes, lots of movie lovers will look back and say, 'But it should have happened for Moon.'
July 6, 2010
A throwback to the golden era of 1970s sci-fi, Moon is a long overdue and morally relevant antidote to the overblown bombast of todays science fiction.
July 6, 2010
Moon is an old-fashioned sci-fi movie in the best sense: far more psychological drama than space opera, dispensing with overweening CGI and loud flashy action sequences while harking back to subtler, more ideas-driven entries in the genre.
June 2, 2010
Evocative, riveting, and ultimately contemporary in a roundabout way, Moon is a superb mood piece, sublimely cradled by Jones, filtered through tireless work from star Sam Rockwell.
May 6, 2010
While some of it is clearly inspired by other material, director Jones spins this yarn into something unique and fresh and new and exhilarating.
