之前 Moonfall touches down in theaters this weekend, critics are sharing their thoughts on the Roland Emmerich sci-fi film.
Moonfall, which stars 哈莉·贝瑞, 帕特里克·威尔逊 和 Michael Peña, takes place in a world where the moon has been knocked off its orbit and is set to strike Earth, causing unimaginable disaster. Jo (浆果) embarks on a mission to save the planet, and is joined by fellow astronaut Brian (威尔逊) and amateur scientist K.C. (约翰布拉德利).
Frank Scheck wrote in 好莱坞报道 那 “Moonfall looks and sounds like a would-be cinematic blockbuster but comes up painfully short in its ham-fisted execution.”
他加了, “Filled with unintentional humor, the film seems inevitably destined for exposure on a future incarnation of Mystery Science Theater 3000.”
Charles Pulliam-Moore lampooned Moonfall 作为 “hollow” in his review for 边缘, 写作, “If you’ve caught any of Moonfall‘s bombastic TV spots or seen some of its busier print ads, you’ll probably see each of the film’s uninspired twists coming long before any of its characters do. But that might not be enough to prepare you for how breathtakingly bad Moonfall — a movie that feels like it could have been great — ends up being.”
名利场, 也, panned Emmerich’s latest, with Richard Lawson dubbing the film “awfully boring” 和 “a lifeless assemblage of confusing CGI and pat characters we barely know.”
Lawson added, “I had hoped to, 至少, hoot along with the movie in support of its swaggering silliness. But the film is dull and mostly depressing, a testament to the state of non-franchise maximalist filmmaking today.”
Critics also joked about the movie on Twitter, where Tomris Laffly — who writes for 种类 and Roger Ebert, 发推文, “MOONFALL: You know the news ain’t good when your cell rings in the middle of the night and the call is from NASA!”
秃鹫 critic Alison Wilmore tweeted a cartoon 与标题, “When Patrick Wilson in MOONFALL says he doesn’t want to go on a desperate last-ditch mission to space because he’s got problems of his own down on earth and then Halle Berry retorts ‘And the moon falling in pieces onto the Earth isn’t one of them?!’ “

洛杉矶时报 was more lenient on Moonfall, with critic Justin Chang describing the film as his own “kind of stupidity.”
“Certainly it’s refreshing to see an end-of-the-world movie in which the characters aren’t just cluelessly hashtagging their way to oblivion the way they do in 不要抬头, another recent movie about humanity’s impending extinction,” Chang noted.
他加了, “Moonfall, to its credit, harbors no illusions about being useful. I don’t know about mega-structures, but this particular moon is made of purest B-movie cheese.”
Moonfall premieres in theaters Friday.
