A bit overrated, but still very good. I was intrigued and entertained for most of the movie, because it felt so believable. But after we discovered what was happening in the basement, things went a bit over-the-top and I had to suspend my disbelief in order to enjoy the rest of the movie. And that really disappointed me. I wanted a believable denouement/ending, and I didn't get it. Oh well...
I'm surprised by the 27% audience score (as of Feb 2, 2020) for this movie. Yes, it is a bad movie; a VERY bad movie, in fact. But it's one of those very bad movies that is hard to look away from because it's so daggum entertaining in its cheesiness. I find myself watching it every time it comes on cable, with a silly little smirk on my face. The acting, dialog, and (not-so-special) special effects are all terrible, and the plot is ridiculous. But I think the movie manages to maintain a feeling of creepiness throughout, buoyed by an effective soundtrack. I kinda like it. So sue me.
This might be the most important movie in the history of cinema, but that doesn't necessarily make it high entertainment. It is technically flawless and superbly acted, with perhaps the most haunting soundtrack ever. But some parts are actually DIFFICULT to watch. I found myself wiping away tears multiple times, just thinking to myself, "This ACTUALLY HAPPENED!" Incredible movie, but you will never be the same after watching it--And I'm not sure you will like the way it changes you. You have been warned.
I had never heard of this movie until I recently started noticing it in the cable listings. Finally decided to give it a watch last night...and was very pleasantly surprised! "Moon" has an intriguing premise, and features a terrific performance by the always reliable Sam Rockwell who plays multiple roles--sort of. (Only those people who have actually seen the movie will appreciate what I mean when I say "sort of" multiple roles!) I figured out what was happening fairly early on, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the denouement because the premise is so thought-provoking. I often found myself wondering how I would feel and what I would do if I were in the lead character's position. The idiot crowd looking for an "Armageddon" type movie will be thoroughly disappointed. But intelligent folks who appreciate intriguing and thought-provoking ideas ("Arrival", anyone?) will find "Moon" to be highly enjoyable science fiction. Definitely recommended for the latter.
I really, really enjoyed the first hour or so of this movie. But the "big reveal" about Charlize Theron's character has to be one of the most unnecessary and ridiculous plot twists in the history of cinema--The movie COMPLETELY fell apart after that! I'll give "Hancock" 4 stars up to the point of that "big reveal" (ugh), and barely a half star after that. So 2 stars overall...but what a lost opportunity...
