This one has been sitting in my hard disk for quite some time...
I expected the movie to be some freaking show like Sunshine starring Chris Evans, Michelle Yeoh or something... It really was like that at the beginning...
But as the story developed, I really begun to like the main character. This movie is really one heavy weight acting movie. Sam Rockwell carried the whole movie, with the aid of the voice of Kevin Spacey as the intelligent robot GERTY.
The movie was about Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) being the only personnel on moon to harvest clean energy. Two weeks before being deported back to Earth, he started having hallucinations and crashed his Rover. Next, Sam woke up in the informatory with not much memory of what happened. Later it was discovered that there were clones of Sam Bell in the harvesting base. The rest of the story was quite interesting, watching two clones interacting.
I love the soundtrack of the movie the most. The music played with our emotions perfectly. The soundtrack really amplify the sadness of the movie. There wasn't much action or thrill, but more of a psychological thing, watching how two person with the exact same personality interact, how they beat the crap out of each other and then helped each other. It was like watching twins but they were the same person.
I really have to credit Sam Rockwell in his superb performance. He doesn't really say much but said everything through his eyes. Those sad lonely eyes defined the older Sam clone, like he really missed home. And when he found out about the truth, those sad eyes showed despair and hopelessness. Meanwhile, Rockwell portrayed the younger Sam clone to be one hot- headed, hot- tempered, fresh person who has yet to endure his three year duty alone on the moon. Really enjoyable to watch!
Ratings : 8/10. Not much of a plot. Almost feels like watching Hurt Locker, like you don't know what to expect next, only this one is much better acting and much better concept.
