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.
December 16, 2009
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.
October 8, 2009
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.
July 24, 2009
Moon is a gripping sci-fi tale, but also has a lot of heart and humanity.
July 17, 2009
This is a defiantly British film. It's one we can be proud of - in moderation.
July 17, 2009
The film is not entirely logical, but it raises pleasing questions and looks beautiful.
July 17, 2009
A heartfelt, if self-consciously derivative drama of human loneliness.
July 17, 2009
With its measured pacing, melancholy tone and eye for prosaic details, Moon is very different from the glossy sci-fi blockbuster - and far more satisfying.
July 17, 2009
Jones, as writer and director, has fashioned a good-looking, claustrophobic piece despite his limited resources.
July 10, 2009
Most contemporary sci-fi movies come on with all CGI-guns blazing, trying to blow the roof off the theater. Moon settles for trying to blow your mind instead.
July 10, 2009
This eerie drama harks back to sci-fi movies of the late 60s and early 70s that explored inner as well as outer space.
July 10, 2009
Storywise, Moon fails to live up to the promise of its premise. There's plenty of atmosphere, but little gravity.
July 9, 2009
For a 'paranoid thriller' to work, the paranoia has to rise and rise until a climax at the finale, not give away the game halfway in.
July 9, 2009
Ultimately, Moon isn't quite the transcendent experience that it clearly strives to be. But as ambitious science fiction, it achieves liftoff.
July 3, 2009
Moon is first-rate science fiction, tackling such issues as identity, individuality and the effects of isolation on the psyche and the soul.
July 3, 2009
Watching Moon is kind of like seeing a booster rocket thrust seventies' sci-fi films deeper into orbit.
