Moon - Movie review

I've had Moon for some time but knew it probably wasn't the kind of film my wife would enjoy so held off watching it until now.

I was happily surprised by the film, only knowing a little bit about the plot it was much better than I thought it would be.

The film revolves around the life of Sam, an astronaut who lives on the moon and operates a number of machines which are part of a power plant sending back precious fuel to Earth.

Not long into the film Sam comes to realise he is a clone when he meets another copy of himself. The film does well not to go and spell everything out to the viewer and leaves you to fill in the pieces and understand the meaning behind what's happening.

At the start of the film you're thinking he's going to go crazy, having been alone on station for almost three years but by the end the film has taken you in such a completely different direction it's hard to really say what the film is about.

Overall I thought the acting was great and Kevin Spacey's as the voice of Sam's robotic companion fit well. While the film did keep intrigued throughout, it's probably not one of those films I'd watch again, atleast not for a few years anyway.
