Moonfall movie review

post image

I can’t tell you how much I was itchingly anticipating Moonfall movie to be released! However, did it live up to my expectations? well, unfortunately, not really.

Let me tell you why! The movie was a normal, kind of a boring disaster, prosaic I should add. Even though I was itching to see it.

You know the moon and its various theories, the hollow moon and all these theories for the record are very interesting I shall say. However, the movie presented them in a weak manner, in terms of the writing.

The dialogue and the writing on the general of Moonfall were weak and not satisfying for such a movie with such cast and crew in general. Even the final twist, which was, to be honest interesting, but the problem was on the delivery.

You know the movies on the Disaster subgenre tend to present the story of what is happening in a simple easy understanding way; Like for example Greenland, Don’t Look Up, or The Walking Dead. . .

But that wasn’t the case for Moonfall movie, the delivery of the information and the plot of the story was somehow messy. Moreover, there were some events that does not make sense, not logical by any means.

In Conclusion

The fact that I am not able to find something positive to elevate the movie makes me sad, even acting was wimpy sometimes corner I should add.

To sum up this review, Moonfall movie did not make me feel the disaster really. Moreover, the dramatic side was introduced quickly. The only strong thing was the CGI. 

Moonfall movie Rating

In general, this is just a popcorn movie, something to stream in the background without really engaging much. And my rating is 4/10!

Don’t Look Up

This movie has pissed off so many people, I guess these people were expecting something and got something else. 

In my opinion, this was one of the movies I enjoyed, to be honest! and as far as I am concerned the movie has a purpose to fulfill and it surely did!

The movie takes the story of two astronomers; who will find out that a large comet as they name it Planet Killer is making its way to earth.

This news got completely ignored by the authorities. Anyway? this is a good movie, very similar to Moonfall, even much better I should say.

 

World War Z (2013)

In a post-zombie apocalypse, Gerry Lane the ex-United Nations agent must go overseas, to try and find a resolution for the threat of the apocalypse. Moreover, the entire humanity is depending on him now, will he succeed?

 

Geostorm

A network of satellites was designed to control the international climate. However, it got out of control causing a Geostorm that may wipe out everything and everybody.

To sum up, you will find this movie similar to Moonfall, I recommend it.

 

San Andreas

We can’t oppose that one of the most similar movies to Moonfall is San Andreas starring Dwayne Jhonson. In general, I feel like any movie that includes The Rock brings with him a positive and relaxing vibe I should add.

10 000 Bc

The village of Silverton is threatened by tornadoes, and the hurricane trackers’ predictions do not bode well for the residents.

Moreover, currently, they are seeking refuge, so what is going to happen?

 

Crawl (2019)

If memory serves me well, this movie is on Tarantino’s list of the best movies of 2019.

When a category storm hits a village; a young woman finds herself forced to go and rescue her father who is trapped in his home.

However, the bigger risk is the crocodiles outside! Very thrilling movie, I liked it so much.
