wow,what a great year for a debutante director ! after Marc Webb colorful romantic comedy,here comes Duncan Jones first feature,Moon,which is,while not as great as some people said (many comparing this as 2001 for this decade) but still a delicate,above average,science fiction.And Rockwell deserves an oscar nomination in this one
Transparent and with a very naive aproach to an actually philosophical, psyhological question - spoiLeR- of human clones. It could be so much more, it could rase big questions, but somehow it's just a mix of wannabe Matrix and 2001: Space Odyssey and this fact is pretty clear - the elements of them are there but the whole story lacks a lot.
A beautifully told and executed small science fiction story. Yes, most of the concepts and ideas have been done before but that's hardly a criticism as any film genre is generally retelling old story's in a new way. The joy here is watching Sam Rockwell crafting a tremendous performance and carrying the film single-handedly. Fantastic debut by Duncan Jones! I hope he's already in pre-production on his next film!
A wonderful sci-fi with a stand-out performance by Sam Rockwell. More importantly Moon is a film that tells a story both concisely and intelligently, no lasers, aliens, nor soap opera arcs, just a claustrophobic journey of identity, memory and discovery. Really enjoyable and highly recommended.
I liked it a lot, even if it's not a classic movie. It's an interesting, intelligent, low-key kind of sci-fi, which is a nice break from the noisy and flashy (albeit entertaining) modern sci-fi like Star Trek. Not superior necessarily, just different. Rockwell gives his all, too, which he is definitely to be commended for.
