WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Los Angeles Times by

Try as they might, the filmmakers never hit the outer reaches of imagination that both Kubrick and Bowie did. Which is not to say the film completely implodes into a black hole either.

The New York Times by A.O. Scott

The film's ideas are interesting, but don't feel entirely worked out, and Mr. Rockwell's intriguingly strange performance (or performances) is left suspended, without the context that would give Sam's plight its full emotional and philosophical impact. The smallness of this movie is decidedly a virtue, but also, in the end, something of a limitation.
75

USA Today by Claudia Puig

Moon, a superb first feature directed by Duncan Jones (David Bowie's son) and starring an impressive Sam Rockwell, is an intelligent, evocative and deceptively low-key sci-fi adventure.
70

Variety by Dennis Harvey

Despite its handsome look and good thesping workout for Sam Rockwell, the story stretches a bit thin over feature length.

Village Voice by J. Hoberman

Impressively pulled together on a modest budget, Moon has a strong lead and a valid philosophical premise but, despite Bell's fissured psyche, the drama is inert.

The A.V. Club by Noel Murray

Moon is enjoyable as much for its small scale and solid execution as for its crazy twists and creeping existential dread.
