Moonfall 2022 Movie Review, Trailer, and Cast: Roland Emmerich’s Bad Moon Rises and I Mean Really Bad

Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson are astronauts trying to save Earth from a falling moon in this big-budget madness.

Just before Christmas, Adam McKay launched his stellar apocalyptic satire Don’t Look Up, in which the refusal of the political classes and the media to understand the danger of an approaching mega-comet was symbolic of the denial of the climate crisis.  Sadly, that impeccably intended movie turned out to be the celebrity comedy equivalent of Gal Gadot’s Imagine video.  But his fans said critics who didn’t like him were, like journalists, natural accomplices to the problem and didn’t care about the environment.  This liberal arts version of the Trumpian hatred of journalists was all the more bizarre in that most of those expressing it were journalists.

None of these problems apply to Moonfall, a film that is part of the well-established but more humble “disaster” genre, which paradoxically signals its lack of real concern in its deadly serious form combined with a tacitly agreed-upon happy ending, in place of satire  ending in tragedy.  This strangely leaden new example of spectacular action is from Roland Emmerich, a long-time master of these doomsday movies but not really.  But here the formulated nonsense, sometimes part of the enjoyment, is simply exhausting.

The idea is that the moon is moving away from its axis towards us, causing an environmental catastrophe here on Earth.  A former NASA official working in a basement, inevitably played by Donald Sutherland, confirms this terrible truth in whispers.  Destined to be the Leslie Nielsen of his generation, Patrick Wilson stars as maverick astronaut Brian Harper, who was wrongfully fired for alleged incompetence destroying a satellite 10 years earlier, though in reality it was his heroism that saved the life of his colleague Jo. Fowler.  (Halle Berry), who is now a big NASA cheese.  Meanwhile, a crazy British weirdo with bizarre theories about the moon is starting to gain traction online: This is KC Houseman, played by John Bradley (Samwell Tarly from Game of Thrones), and it’s a more Simon-esque role. Pegg that requires a lot of goofiness.

As the moon draws ever closer, ripples of CGI flooding the buildings, NASA and the Joint Chiefs swallow their pride and realize they’ll have to send a special mission of freethinking heroes and heroines to the moon to fix it. : Brian, Jo and the silly KC.  Meanwhile, their stepfamilies have tense adventures on Earth.

It should be a laugh;  it does not claim to be anything else, and it certainly does not aspire to contemporary satire.  But the wacky and somewhat Jules Verne-esque revelations don’t breathe new life into the disaster genre;  rather it feels like the shark jumped over the moon, resulting in what feels like hours and hours of solemn gibberish.  For all of Don’t Look Up’s flaws, at least it was addressing something real and relevant.  In this film the moon has fallen with a terrible thud.
