As far as sci-fi movies goes, this one paints a fascinating near future scenario that’s absolutely worth exploring.
The world building is awesome in this, and seems so believable. Capitalism on the moon? Of course!
Brad Pitt is excellent in this, and is a protagonist you can easily root for; especially given the premise he is put in.
The rest of the cast are solid too, but Brad Pitt kinda (positively) overshadows this movie.
I like the voice-over monologues here, which adds to the atmosphere and tone of the film.
The movie does feel like a literal visual novel come to life, especially because of the voice-over monologues.
Speaking of visuals. Amazing cinematography! The way this movie looks overall is just eye candy for me.
While the premise and plot is relatively straight forward, there is also a subtle thematic story that is carefully laid out for us to experience.
The journey from when the movie starts, to where it ends, is kinda epic. Some spectacular scenes and story set-pieces to catch in this.
If the direction of this movie is not your cup of tea, then you might find it boring to watch.
Technically, things constantly happen in this movie to keep things moving, but it’s hard to argue the fact that the pacing is still pretty slow.
Tonally, it can also feel a little too dour.
There are also some plot conveniences that pushes the limits of your suspension of disbelief.
Sci-fi aficionados might find some fault with the movie’s science.
