      Astronaut Sam Bell's (Sam Rockwell) three-year shift at a lunar mine is finally coming to an end, and he's looking forward to his reunion with his wife (Dominique McElligott) and young daughter. Suddenly, Sam's health takes a drastic turn for the worse. He suffers painful headaches and hallucinations, and almost has a fatal accident.

      • Oct 27, 2015

        It's interesting to watch a film with a "twist" focus on the journey, not the destination, an unusually nonchalant approach to what seems like should be a pretty major turn in the storytelling. But either way, Sam Rockwell is (unsurprisingly) gold.

        An interesting premise that leads nowhere, except to a bunch of cliches like the tremendously banal escape sequence in end with plenty of doses of sentimentality (see the first clone's death). The film tries to do too much with its initial premise: social criticism, thriller, mystery, even some horror in the beginning, but follows nothing to a satisfying end. Ultimately, it is a confused film and an inconsistent narrative (for example, what was the lady that the Sam sees in the beginning? Never explained.).

        Simple, tense, and wonderful. Sam Rockwell is kind of the man. So is Kevin Spacey's voice.

        Sam Rockwell delivers a tour-de-force performance in "Moon," which is second only to "Children of Men" as the best science-fiction film of the 21st century. It's a testament to Duncan Jones' inventiveness and strength as a director that he is able to work on such a low budget (for this kind of film) and still create a tense and professional-looking motion picture. As well, Nathaniel Parker's screenplay is as original as the sci-fi genre has yet to offer and Clint Mansell's minimalist score is subtle and haunting, but it's Rockwell's performance that holds the entire film together.
