4 out of 5. Duncan Jones' deceptively simple MOON shows a real sincerity to filmmaking. Really smart well-done sci-fi flick. The story is rich and the attention to details respects the audiences intelligence. Sam Rockwell does a great job in this difficult role. With possible nods to Tarkovsky's Solyaris and Syd Mead the production design was a real treat. There was still something about it that held it back from being a GREAT film. It might have been the lack of deep emotional ties to other characters. For fans of movies like Sunshine and Solyaris you will revel in the sights and sounds of this well-crafted film.
