ConsA bit slow & lacklustre for me at times.

I recall this film from a few years ago but somehow managed to not watch it, or not all of it at least. I was then recommended it more recently and gave it my undivided attention. Whilst I enjoyed it, and it was certainly different, it was a bit slow in parts so I can’t give it a raving review...

“No CGI monsters here”

published 22/05/2011

ProGreat acting, excellent directing

ConsA little slow moving for some

Moon is one of those films with a strangely unsettling atmosphere; the loneliness of space, the feeling of not being able to trust your own instincts, the innate knowledge that something unknown is out there and watching you. Films such as Moon , very much like Solaris and Silent Running , delve...

ConsDepressing

On our way to South Africa, we took two long journeys, stopping off in Doha on the way. On the first stretch of the journey, I was pleased to discover that we had in-flight entertainment, including movies. There weren’t many films I recognised and most of the older ones were films I’d already...

ConsPerhaps too slow paced for some

I seem to be going through a phase of watching movies with a minimalist cast. After my recent viewing of the one man Ryan Reynolds show that was Buried I decided to finally check out the highly rated Moon. It is a movie that has been recommended to me by numerous people and after enjoying Source...

ProGreat Direction and Acting

ConsToo Slow for some

Moon reminds me a lot of those big weighty Sci-fi films of the seventies where it was all about atmosphere, storyline and your imagination rather than riotous special effects and wise cracking aliens. This film is utterly beguiling, its tense but strangely relaxing, all of these is down to two...

For a first break into movie direction Duncan Jones has produced a really quirky film that forgoes the usual high-tech special effects relying instead on atmosphere and characterisation. Synopsis With just two weeks to go after a solo 3 year stint on the Moon, Sam Bell is looking to going home to...

WARNING: I am going to try my best not to give too many plot points away as there is a twist in this film which I don't want to spoil for viewers.

“Atmosphere on the moon.”

published 04/11/2009

ProIntelligent science fiction.

ConsSlow moving.

In the cold vacuum of space Moon is a breath of fresh air! At last, what fans of intelligent science fiction have been waiting for. A film with a proper plot. Ideas. Atmosphere. Duncan Jones, known to some as Zowie Bowie, to others as David Bowie's son, directs his first major motion picture. A...
