This movie looks great. I agrre with the various comments I have seen: we need more sci-fi movies like this. It does seem to have, well, ALOT of similarities with 2001, but I can't say that is a bad hing.

I've already seen it twice. Not something I do often at all, but it was so crowded seeing it the first time that we had to sit on the floor, and miss the first 10 minutes.

Anyhow, without having ever seen 2001, I can't make comparisons. But I will say that this is one of the smartest Sci-Fis I've seen, and incredibly interesting to watch the second time around after you know what the hell was going on the entire time.

Rockwell gave an excellent performance, of course.
And you forget that he's interacting with himself as a clone. Seamless transitions on such a limited budget. Perfectly executed.

Fantastic film made on a shoestring. Sam Rockwell is simply perfect, as is Kevin Spacey. There's a real chemistry between between them.

As for Sam Rockwell, his situation is by turns funny and heart-breakingly sad. You live through each tiny micro emotion with him - each triumph and and tragedy feels immensely personal.

The film looks perfect - a great set reminiscent of the sterile innards of the Nostromo from Alien.

This film definitely has echos of the talky sci-fi films of the 70s, Silent Running and Dark Star.

It's not afraid to ask the big questions, and does what good sci-fi does best - takes a very human idea 'what is identity?' and places it into a fantastic setting for close examination.

Whole heartedly recommended.

None of the twists take you by surprise, but it doesn't matter in the slightest because it's not about shocking the audience with cheap thrills and out-witting them, but making them ask questions and examining consequences. Sam Rockwell is utterly amazing and fluid, it's an absolute pleasure to watch him.
I loved that GERTY turned out to not be a malevolent HAL ripoff. It's nice to see an AI that doesn't go haywire and try and murder the protagonist.

We need more sci-fi like this that isn't just an action movie in space.

Because no body should go without another brilliant Clint Mansell piece.

Great film.

The most intelligent science fiction film in years. Moody, dark, and wonderfully atmospheric. Well worth seeing.

(I'm hoping that this, and "District 9" lead a revival of science fiction cinema that is not just spaceships and robots exploding.)

Sony is not supporting this film in the lead up to the Oscars. There is an online petition to have Sam Rockwell nominated for the 'Best Actor' category. I know online petitions are next to useless, but for fans of this film adding your name will, at least, give you a warm fuzzy feeling.

Sign up as support for intelligent Science Fiction over explosions an CGI, if nothing else.

One of the best movies of the decades easily

just watched it with my sister and her boyfriend. i had never heard of the movie until he was talking about how good it was supposed to be. I watched the movie in awe and it made me re-realize why i wanted to go into film as a career.

Fffffffffinaly saw this.

Wonderfuly made. The scenes where he was traversing the moon were beautiful.

I knew about the clone, but I was wondering how they were going to do this. Very satisfactory ending with apparant start of him revealing everything to the public.

On the negative side, at times the interaction between the Sam's seemed a bit unnatural, and Sam seemed to take it very well that there was a clone. I was also a bit confused at times. Didn't at one point Gerty said there was no crash? I may have misheard.

All in all, great film. I want my own Gerty.

I didn't care much for this ... it was intriguing and interesting to watch, so I guess the entertainment value was there, but what a convoluted story. I guess sci-fi has never really been my thing but it was like a really long Twilight Zone episode, and those I like some of and don't like some of. I liked some of this movie and didn't like some of it. 6/10

I loved this movie so much! It was very creepy the way he kept getting sicker and sicker...and then his clones started turning up...really weird. I'm glad I watched it!
