Review: Moon

Working on the moon is tiring work, why don't you take a seat Sam?

Directors Father

Moon is a film about a moon base, with only one worker. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell). And with his Computer companion GERTY (Kevin Spacey) they work to harvest the moons supply of energy. While he is there though, he has a little, accident. Which leads him to discover a few things about the base, leading to a confrontation with something familiar. I totally Loved this film, the acting by Sam Rockwell was absolutely immense, and quite emotional as I almost cried at one point. I give this 8/10 David Bowies (you'll get it)

Good Points:

  • Sam Rockwell, Pretty awesome actor, and did his stuff in that film which as I stated, almost made me cry, and thats pretty rare you know (not).
  • Story, it was quite well thought out, could have been better, although it was made better by emotions and other things.
  • Emotional scenes, this was running wild near the end, and I felt pretty sad for Sam during that point, which is pretty good in a film, especially when you don’t expect it.
  • Kevin Spacey makes a great robot.

Bad Points:

  • Ending, could have been a little better, but was quite good anyway, Made better by that acting.
  • Sam was pretty much the only person on the base aside from GERTY, which means that there isn’t much versatility in the mono/dialogue.

Unfortunately in this film there is pretty much speaking from Sam to either GERTY or the communications thing that he uses to talk to Earth, and while it does get repetitive it does change about half-way through. From this film now Sam Rockwell is one of my favourite actors, good Job! I suggest you DVD this, you will probably want to watch it again.

Films like Moon: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), The Island (2005),  A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001), Gattaca (1997)
