Hollywood fiction has always set the tone and the bar of the world film industry. The mind-boggling budgets and intriguing special effects in millions of dollars has already become a branded stories, then the adaptation of comics of all types and sizes, but on the background of all this unprecedented stuff designed for Teens fulmars with a crinkle in mind nuggets — real diamonds this genre!

However, "the moon 2112", of course, with the big stretch it is possible to put in a row with such films as "the Abyss" Kemeruna, or"Contact" with jodie foster, — is as those movies that subtly reveal to the audience all the beauty, all the phenomenon of this movie science-fiction. Horse "the moon 2112" I think absolutely in other!

In many reviews of "the moon 2112" them report the drama, the loneliness of the main character Sam, an astronaut-getter, who "produces Dobivanii" (C); -) on the dark side of the moon, waits for the completion of the contract, and return home. But it's only bright side to this lunar story and drama are secondary. And Sam, really, it is not alone, because it is the source and colleague the face of artificial intelligence — Gertse, which is virtually copied into the movie the famous robot "Hal" from "a Space Odyssey". Yes, that somehow the glowing lens that is brewing over the station its only inhabitant, diluted with smileys screen is equipped with a robotic arm. He prepares food, cares for Sam organizes connection to a Land where Sam waits for its beautiful wife and little daughter. But this movie puts absolutely no issues of human loneliness in a vacuum station and rather, it is only played model, a cynical system of organization of production of the notorious "dobivanie" containing all modern innovations in science imposed on the projection of human feelings and fears. Of course, to reveal the character of Sam was an accident waiting to happen, had to happen the situation in which would be revealed the cards in this unfair game where the spectator is confronted with that actually the main character — it was just a cluster, part of a program long in three years pre-programmed behavior, recorded in the brains of Gretsi "serial" sessions land and the known end of the contract. Where the role of artificial intelligence Gretsi — to become more humane and compassionate creature, in compared to your home — greedy company "Lunark". But there inconsistencies in the characters of Sam, it was the characters, so as the role of Sam Rockwell demanded from him one hand to play one and the same person, and on the other hand to distance the two characters-twins, and show us the difference between them in length of three years, which would be visible to the viewer. This the artificiality of the situation and circumstances time and make a feeling of pity and regret, about which can be obtained from the reviews on this movie. Of course, the usual inexperienced viewer would be more interesting if the nature of Sam's three year olds went on the dark side and tried to kill their followers or destroy station her newborn twins, or would have played a scene of hatred and revenge soaked to the prototype for the Earth or would have attacked business owners put it these impossible conditions.

But probably the challenge of this story is not in human characters. After all, Sam is programmed clone and nothing but pity for he does not matter. Of course this film deserves attention and spent time and discuss the critically acclaimed low-budget really not small. Still, 5 million dollars is absolutely not a small sum, if we take in account that the film was shot with participation of only 5-6 actors not the first tier, and only for 33 days. It is an example of a good cinematic experience to make a great movie from the Hollywood fantasy mainstream, and this attempt was a success! Beautiful MONORAL Sam Rockwell, good job artists at the makeup

The film of Duncan Jones "Moon 2112" made on me a lasting impression. About this picture said a lot, I saw a bunch of good reviews and articles, almost all of the critics praised her for dignity. I already do not was eager to see the next creation in the genre of science fiction. Although I still knew in advance that "the Moon 2112" — this is pure psychological drama.

The plot of the film is very confusing and completely incomprehensible at first. We show the life of the protagonist Sam, who worked quite a lot on the lunar station. I want to emphasize that very accurately and clearly describes the feelings and experiences of Sam. Thanks to the well done work of the Director, the audience can empathise with a hero. He spent on moon all alone, without , without friends and family... Only the robot Gerty is the own company. By the way this robot as we all know he was voiced by Kevin spacey. Of course, we can't see the actor and his impeccable performance, but I can hear its voice. Yes, myself Gerty turned on mercy, good-natured. From the main character has a loving wife and daughter, who are really looking forward to it, believe that everything will be fine. It is very touching, even sometimes breaks a tear.

But one day, Sam meets the station of the same person, as he himself. In here gets the whole story. There are many questions. As double Sam got on the station? Where he at all? And why? You can break over it but nobody guess what's trick. The writers, of course, tried to glory, to make the viewer to watch the film to the end. But as not it is strange that the end is not in the finale, as expected, and in the middle of the picture. At this intrigue is all the same not quenched. I'm not will imply ending, because all have becomes clear. The moon should look, only then you can have fun.

Although the pleasure from store got a little. On the contrary, his heart was very sad and even scary. But not mean "the Moon 2112" was a bad movie. On the contrary, it draws holds up to the end.

The actors in the film also deserve attention. Sam Rockwell played brilliantly. It is seen that it was hard enough to play two people. Yes, Yes, at least two characters in the performance of one actor and similar appearance, but by nature they are, how it turns out, is very different. Rockwell certainly did. In his eyes are visible and fear the agony of loneliness.

The special effects and the scenery is also very convincing. All the technology of the future seems plausible. Panoramic photography of the moon is very beautiful, they only reinforce the situation of loneliness. The music is Clint Mansell's unusual, enchanting that need to a sci-Fi movie.

10 out of 10.

Thus, the film of Duncan Jones me very very much. This a picture maybe with easy to bring to tear to any viewer. But she makes you wonder and realize still, the man is cruel, brutal, even against yourself.

The film debut of Duncan Jones "Moon 2112" (in the original, just Moon) is unique in its kind project. He made in 33 days, and budget is not exceeded, and 5 million dollars. All the action takes place actually in the same place. There are no special effects. Only used scenery and small models, like in the good old days bobrikovskiy "the Odyssey". Compare it with 200 million "Old Trek" Abrams. But as is no strangely enough, it is the creation of the Abrams looks at the background of the "moon" poor relative. Because Jones has done what Hollywood never dreamed of. He gave us back the genre of science fiction in its original form. After all, what is science fiction? This Stanislaw LEM and the brothers Strugatsky in the literature. This "2001: a Space Odyssey", "Solaris" and"Running on the blade" in the cinema. Science fiction (or Western-style sci-fi) have always been interested in three fundamental questions: who are we? where are we from? where are we going? Director Blomkamp in a recent "Area N9" also put these questions tried to answer them. And so it film can be fully attributed to sci-fi. But still it was somewhat upgraded version: with action, beautiful shooting and different spectacular pieces. A Jones returns it to the basics: from him pure science fiction, which does not need any special effects to seem convincing.

It's funny but by the middle reveals to the viewer the main story plot, but this is not just not kills interest, but rather only fuels it. Another would be on the spot Jones held for the intrigue up to the final credits, but here for the author she itself to themselves not is the main. Most importantly — the consequences of the disclosure of this mystery, how to respond the situation the main character after see you will understand everything. It was then that the author put to himself, to the hero (or is it heroes?) and in front of the audience the most of the questions on which the principle, there is simple answer, but because of this, still not want to stop them ask time.

And this tape on loneliness. About the absolute isolation. Never before it not look into screen as convincing. When your house — moon, your best friend — a supercomputer, a distant cousin of HAL-9000 (I wonder what place in the ranking of supercomputers is a supercomputer with the voice of Kevin spacey). Sam Rockwell perfectly all is transferred to the image of his character. There were fears that when Sams will be two, it will be too. But they were in vain. Rockwell there it begins to represent in fact two incarnation of one and the same personality handles this fine. I had my way I would still extended the movie on an hour or so, just enough to enjoy the game of Rockwell. I then I read somewhere that is one of the most brilliant actors of our time (IMHO one of the critics). Honestly, after this film, doubt it will disappear from any.

So, we have a rare example of science fiction of the highest order, which is not ashamed to put in a row with classics of the genre.
