Synopsis:
Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the completion of his 3-year-long contract with Lunar Industries, mining Earth's primary source of energy on the dark side of the moon. Alone with only the base's vigilant computer Gerty as his sole companion, Bell's extended isolation has taken its toll. His only link with outside world comes via satellite messages from his wife and young daughter. He longs to return home, but a terrible accident on lunar surfaces leads to disturbing discovery that contributes to his growing sense of paranoia and dislocation so many miles away from home.

One of the best sci-fi films I have seen in a long time - Moon review by RP

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2012

One of the best sci-fi films I have seen in a long time. A small story, a confined and claustrophobic environment, a small cast (one actor – if that doesn't give too much away), but complex concepts and deep emotions play out here. It pays homage to 'classic' sci-fi films, including '2001: A Space Odyssey' with a robot character akin to HAL. I enjoyed it – highly thought provoking. However, for an opposing view, my wife thought it truly boring so I guess you'll either love it or hate it. The film won a 2010 BAFTA for Outstanding Debut – I agree, and it gets 5/5 stars from me.

Spacey in space - Moon review by JD

Spoiler Alert
04/10/2016

The entry in Cinema P gives Spacey as the first actor. I was hoping to get the full force of his acting, unfortunately just his voice as a robot. Sam Rockwell (Bell) plays pretty much the only actor in this film well. 97 minutes of 1 actor is impressively pulled off by virtue of his acting and a great plot. The first scene is the set up for the futuristic plot. It describes in documentary/news format why Sam's character is on the moon. I think it could have been incorporated into the plot more subtly. Similarly the last scene describing the outcome was a little unsubtle. The rest is claustrophobically in a space station with the slow development of Bell, the unravelling of plot and the interesting view of human nature in terms of massive commercial investment and dispensibilty of life. I wish Spacey and Rockwell castings had been swapped. The budget should have been a bit bigger but the story is very moving and refreshingly different.

quite boring - Moon review by AB

Spoiler Alert
15/03/2019

Albeit great with a single actor carrying the plot and scenes, the story was a tad confusing until the end, and even then not great.

A bit over-hyped but in the end watchable
