comments and criticisms are claptrap outlets for miserable egotistical blowhards who are essentially detached from any successful creative endevour.

Great movie - it shows that you can have an enjoyable story without a series of explosions and heavy handed special effects.

My guess? - One reason why some people are afraid to slam this piece of Sci-Fi junk is 'cause it was directed by David Bowie's son, the obviously no-talent Duncan Jones._____ For me Moon's "clone-ified" novelty of a literal one-man show lasted for about 15 fidgety minutes. And, then, at that point, once I realized what a total lunar toilet that this film's constipated story was heading down, it took all of the patience that I could possibly muster to see it through to its unbelievably disappointing and completely unconvincing ending._____ Believe me, Moon was the sort of sickening Sci-Fi slop that intergalactic yawns and celestial farts are made of._____ Perhaps if a more competent and more likable and more dynamic actor (other than Sam Rockwell) had been chosen for the all-important role of Sam Bell and if the dead-end dialogue had been a helluva lot more snappy (instead of being exceedingly crappy), then, yes, Moon actually might've risen out from the moon-muck of an astral graveyard._____ All-in-all - Moon was utterly atrocious filmmaking. Yep. It sure was. Give me Plan 9 From Outer Space over this useless heap of mortified moondust any old day of the year.

Moon reminds me of both '2001' and 'Oblivion'. A great plot and, despite basically a solo performance by the lead actor, this is one engaging sci-fi story. Highly recommended for both sci-fi and non-sci-fi film lovers.

An entertaining film with a mix of emotions from astrounants and a computer.

i am a total s.f. freak and have been for 65 years. during the aforementioned time frame i have seen a myriad of s.f. films. Moon was one of the best "indie" films of this, or any other, genre....

One of the most well written, well acted, and thought provoking films I've seen in a long time. One of my favorite sci-fi films.

Never would have found this film but for the reviews here... Thanks! I agree with the other reviewers that this movie is worth every bit of the 97 minutes. This director also worked on Source Code, so I hope to be seeing more quality projects from him in the future.

Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
