Moon | Ratings & Reviews

"Despite its handsome look and good thesping workout for Sam Rockwell, the story stretches a bit thin over feature length."


"Fans of speculative and conceptual sci-fi and classic storytelling should take this trip to identity’s dark side. The direction is elegant, the acting impeccable. Take the trip."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The film's ideas are interesting, but don't feel entirely worked out, and Mr. Rockwell's intriguingly strange performance (or performances) is left suspended, without the context that would give Sam's plight its full emotional and philosophical impact. The smallness of this movie is decidedly a virtue, but also, in the end, something of a limitation."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Moon is a potent provocation that relies on ideas instead of computer tricks to stir up excitement."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Moon is a superior example of that threatened genre, hard science-fiction, which is often about the interface between humans and alien intelligence of one kind of or other, including digital."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Smart space flick with pleasingly little CGI."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Try as they might, the filmmakers never hit the outer reaches of imagination that both Kubrick and Bowie did. Which is not to say the film completely implodes into a black hole either."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Under Duncan Jones' kinetic direction, Moon also shines on the production front: Cinematographer Gary Shaw's shaded shots intensify the drama, and Clint Mansell's music heightens the psycho-scape."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"They do make ’em like they used to -- a fresh blast of old-school sci-fi, bursting with ideas and a stellar turn from Rockwell."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Intelligent, well acted, hard edged sci-fi of a quality we haven't seen in years. Moon did great business at this year's film festival, it deserves a successful return."
