MOONFALL

This throwback to a 1990s blockbuster contains some of the silliest, campy moments you'll ever see and treats them without a single grain of irony.


For its first hour at least, Moonfall is a rather enjoyable throwback to blockbusters of the 1990s, with high production values, an eclectic bunch of cliché-heavy characters and of course a world-endangering threat, in this case the Moon leaving its orbit, sending it on a collision course with Earth.


It's a formula that director Roland Emmerich has perfected long ago but in Moonfall, for all its naïve nostalgic attempts at entertainment, he shows himself to be a relic of a bygone movie era. This becomes evident in a second hour that is so chaotic, stupid and utterly lacking in emotional engagement you feel like hacks have taken over Hollywood.


Kudos to Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson and most pointedly John Bradley-West for at least trying to sell the fun in what gradually becomes a more joyless, movie-by-numbers affair, but there is no denying that Moonfall is a laugh-out-loud waste of time and money, a picture that contains some of the silliest, campy moments you'll ever see and treats them without a single grain of irony.
