    Well acted - just too computerized and the story - line - almost unfollowable

    Light years ahead of most contemporary sci-fi pictures. Halle Berry should be in the conversation for a second Oscar.

    Humanity faces the true and absolute dark side of the Moon, as entire cities are evacuated, moving to higher ground offers the only chance of survival, and civil unrest is pervasive and destructive in once unimaginable ways. For "Moonfall", a theory that described the Moon as something vastly different from what we learned in high school science class. There are some who believe that the Moon is not a natural object. Of course, we've to figure out how to stop it, creating characters who embark on a mission to the Moon to save our planet, as well as the families who stay behind and struggle to survive the cataclysms that come with the Moon’s collision course with Earth. But the human spirit won’t give up so quickly. There are always people who exceed their potential, and Hollywood likes to tell stories about ordinary people in absolute extraordinary situations. Once again, Emmerich pushes the boundaries of the sci-fi genre, this time by exploring his vision of the Moon’s unique megastructure physics. The film shares the premise and gives us a basic idea of what will be happening, but we know all too well that the fully rendered scene will be more vivid than we can visualize. But we're forced to use our imagination. It's a really unusual way of working. We've to trust in what's going to happen on the other side because we literally are looking at nothing much but some visuals on a screen that are kind of simulating what we might see with color tone and flashes of light. A movie can change the way that you look at a certain subject and open your mind, even if it’s a big, fun, splashy spectacle. "Moonfall" does that in a couple unusual ways, it brings up the worry of AI rising against you; there's an increasing fear. We all have this fascination about the end of the world, what that would look like, and if we’d live through it. In the end, Emmerich has crafted a disaster movie with spectacular visual effects.
