MOON (2009 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Moon—unusual, well-thought out, imaginative psychological sci fi drama—starts with a bang and plays out nicely as it settles in to tell its story. Sam Rockwell plays his character well with only two small scenes which could have been stronger: the scene where he bumps his hand against Robot Gerty and when he burns his hand on the hot water faucet. The film on the whole is well-done and very entertaining.

Storyline

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) finds that his company, Lunar Industries, has been cloning him for years and devises a plan to escape additional cloning.
