Why watch this film?
You can say that Roland Emmerich is the father of disaster cinema. Although he was not the one to inaugurate the genre (‘War of the Worlds’ did that two years before the filmmaker was even born), it was the German who gave the popcorn cinema format for aliens invading Earth, earthquakes destroying the surface and a cold to kill - literally. In 'Moonfall', the feeling is that Emmerich takes everything that worked (and failed) in his career and puts it all into one story. After all, we follow the journey of astronauts (Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson) who face a monumental challenge: understanding what is happening with the Moon, which is leaving its orbit and starting to destabilize the Earth. From there, a dive into all the elements of this disaster cinema begins. Obviously, there is a lot out of tune: parallel plots that are not interesting, megalomaniac visual effects that do not convince, physical absurdities and so on. But in the end, there is one certainty: 'Moonfall' is very entertaining. You root for the characters, anxiously follow some catastrophes and so on. Technically problematic, yes. But the movie has heart. And that ends up being enough to keep us glued to the screen while the world (and the Moon) are collapsing in front of us.
A mysterious force knocks the moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it.
