Sam’s an astronaut, and just two weeks before he’s due home, he starts to hallucinate.
As Sam Bell starts to imagine that he’s seeing people–as well as old images of himself on the screen as he transmits information to people back home on Earth–he crashes while heading out to one of the machines harvesting material for renewable energy for Earth.
When he wakes up in the infirmary, he comes to a sudden conclusion: he wants to check out the machine that he crashed into.
This is the part of the film that gets weird. So it turns out that Sam Bell is a clone of the original Sam. Another clone, the one that wasn’t in the crash, finds the clone that was still at the machine crash site.
Slowly, the two try to figure out where all of the clones are being kept. Eventually, after many intense moments which include fighting, the two clones find the other stored clones.
Then what happens next is crazy. There’s a rescue mission coming, but if they find that more than one clone is awake, they will kill them both. One of the clones must go into the machine, while the other gets to go back home.
Moon is apparently a low-budget movie, but it’s so good you can hardly tell. I didn’t notice this until I just looked up information on the film. It’s a little bit of a slower film, looking at what can happen when you spend three years on a mission in space alone. Moon also entertains the idea of believing that you’re real, and not a clone. This film is full of twists and turns, and it’s worth watching, even today.
I won’t spoil the ending, you just need to go ahead and watch it.
