Do you like Sam Rockwell? I mean REALLY like Sam Rockwell? Because if you don’t, you probably won’t like ‘Moon’ because Sam is it (well, Sam and Kevin Spacey as Gerty the Computer).
‘Moon’ is a story set in the future. To solve our energy crisis, we figured out a way to harvest power from the Moon. But someone has to be up there to monitor the equipment. Sam has signed a 3 year contract with the company. He has been living on the moon, his only companion a computer called “Gerty”. He has 2 weeks left before he can return home. But something is not quite right….
And I’ll stop there. If all of the reviews of ‘Moon’ seem vague to you, it’s for a reason. No one wants to say too much and spoil any part of this movie.
I thought Sam Rockwell did a great job considering he was all on his own. He’s come a long way from ‘Guy’ (Galaxy Quest).
I’m not so sure about the re-watchability of this movie though. I don’t think I would view it a second time, but the first time through was interesting and it drew you in. But after it was over, it was over and that was that.
