The moon is now supplying energy to Earth and Sam Bell [Sam Rockwell] is finishing up his 3 year contracted lonely job. His only ‘real’ companionship is GERTY, [the voice of Kevin Spacey] a computer assistant. He cannot wait to get home to his wife Tess and their young daughter. He gets the occasional video mail to keep in touch.
He heads out to check on a malfunction with one of the harvesters, and an accident occurs. He awakens in the infirmary and is told by GERTY that he needs to remain in the station to rest and heal and to not go outside. He is told that a rescue ship, ELIZA, is on the way to clean up the aftermath of the accident. Thinking something is wrong he makes an unauthorized trip to the ‘moon car’ and the harvester where the accident occurred. What he finds there will change who he is forever, and he realizes he has to find a way to get back home.
This was pretty good movie. I was in a sci-fi mood yesterday and after Pandorum watched this. It kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next and who he really is/was. Sam Rockwell did an outstanding job with this movie. Again, for the sci-fi lover in you, Moon is a must see.
Blessings and Hope!
