MovieMail's Review

This mind-bending British award winner sends Peter Curtis into orbit.

A grand statement:† This is the finest science-fiction film since Blade Runner.

Sam Bell is a lone astronaut nearing the end of a three year stint tending a mining base on the dark side of the moon until an accident brings unexpected company.

Never underestimating the intelligence of the audience, this is thoughtful hard science fiction.† Duncan Jonesí directorial debut is a low-budget, one man marvel.†Sam Rockwell is riveting in every scene, the unravelling astronaut dealing with loneliness as the days drag him nearer to his return to earth, civilisation and his family.

You can detect the clean design of 2001 in the sterile corridors and impersonal computers; the probing of the human condition from Solaris; and the hope of Silent Running in its ideology.† Yes, Moon wears their inspiration on its sleeve, but it is no pastiche or lesser work and is comfortable sitting alongside these greats as the best that science-fiction can offer.† Not aliens, not special effects, not adventure, but asking the hardest questions regarding what it means to be human.

Film Description

Critically-acclaimed space isolation drama starring Sam Rockwell as Sam Bell, a worker for Lunar Industries who is nearing the end of a three-year contract to mine the moon's surface for the precious gas Helium 3, the solution to Earth's energy crisis. As he approaches his return to Earth, Sam reflects on the lessons he has learned during his prolonged isolation and looks forward to his reunion with his wife and young daughter. But a fortnight before his departure he starts seeing and hearing strange things that lead him to suspect that his employers intend to replace him in a far more sinister way than he imagined. Kevin Spacey provides the voice for Sam's only companion, a small robot called Gerty.

“Ingenious science fiction offering, packed with thought-provoking ideas.”
by Jonathon Dabell on 9th September 2010

As a movie genre, science fiction seems over the past ten years to have returned to the standard B-movie approach which involves good guys and aliens blasting the hell... Read on
