Boosted by Sam Rockwell's intense performance, Moon is a compelling work of science-fiction, and a promising debut from director Duncan Jones.

Start calculating the costs to Lunar Industries of its singular form of devaluing, and Moon's central premise stops making sense.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Directed and conceived by Duncan Jones, Moon is quiet and disturbing, yet manages to be hopeful in the face of overwhelmingly grim conditions.
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.
Intriguing, imaginative, and thematically ambitious, Moon gives ample proof that Jones is a serious talent, pushing his concepts into intellectually and spiritually challenging territory.
Decent. Not a favourite genre, but it had a decent amount of suspense, though a little slow to get there, and the lead actor is a little uncharismatic.
A very interesting science-fiction, clever and well constructed, that boasts a solid performance by Sam Rockwell and a noteworthy debut direction by David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones.
Simple, tense, and wonderful. Sam Rockwell is kind of the man. So is Kevin Spacey's voice.
An amazingly good hard sci fi movie. Not fantasy sci fi . . just goo sci fi . . an excellent film with Sam Rockwell putting on a great performance. If you want good psychological sci fi movie this is it.
