A very interesting science-fiction, clever and well constructed, that boasts a solid performance by Sam Rockwell and a noteworthy debut direction by David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones.

Definitely different. A bit bizarre, but interesting idea.
Well done, sans the completely unnecessary 'PC/Greenie propaganda BS' during the voice over in the first minute of the film.

Interesting film--if you like your entertainment grim and misanthropic.

Clever, low-budget sci-fi psychological drama. Despite the low budget, the effects are pretty good. Worth a look.

Good science fiction film- it's one of the more successful movies to evoke a Philip K. Dickian type plot/ atmosphere. If you're into more intelligent science fiction this film should hold some appeal for you.

As a fan of indies, I was expecting a lot more from this film. Instead it was just was just a retread of Cast Away (or Robinson Crusoe) with a simple twist. Rockwell’s acting is fine, it’s the script that failed to deliver. For some reason, I think this would’ve made for a better half hour Twilight Zone episode (has it?) than a full blown movie.

Struggled keeping awake during this movie. Was supposed to be deep I think, but basically didn't make much sense.

Sam Rockwell always gives a great performance, and this movie has more screen time of him than any other. It is a science-fiction psychological mystery/thriller. Its director Duncan Jones is David Bowie's son. I recommend this film for fans of sci-fi and/or Sam Rockwell. Moon is rated R for language.
