New Orleans Times-Picayune

By Mike Scott
More than anything this is an intelligent film, a satisfying bit of old-school sci-fi suspense.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Moon is a potent provocation that relies on ideas instead of computer tricks to stir up excitement.

The Hollywood Reporter

Under Duncan Jones' kinetic direction, Moon also shines on the production front: Cinematographer Gary Shaw's shaded shots intensify the drama, and Clint Mansell's music heightens the psycho-scape.

Moon is a deceptively simple study of alienation, paranoia, and loneliness.

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.

I won't pretend to understand the movie's deep meaning--if it has one--but I can say three things for sure: Mr. Rockwell gives a brilliant performance, the physical production is impressive and Moon made me think. Four things: It made me smile.

Moon might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans of Sam Rockwell. Will there ever be more of him in one movie than there is here?

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Moon is boring. Agonizingly, deadeningly, coma-inducingly, they-could-bury-you-alive-accidentally boring.
