[W]hen you least expect it, "In the Shadow of the Moon" delivers a powerful message about the roots of hate and the dangers it poses to society. Don't let this one stay in the shadows for long.

In the Shadow of the Moon isn't effective as sci-fi, action, noir, mystery, or even social commentary, even though it has elements of all of the above.

This is an appealingly polished thriller, with something modest but profound to say about how selfish choices can ripple across decades.

In The Shadow Of The Moon is a disappointing misfire all around, but no matter-like so many other Netflix original films, it'll be reabsorbed into the streaming void soon enough.

Top Critic

The film is never less than engaging, and it's just about always clever.

There's a slicker, more coherent and ultimately more thematically audacious film to be made from the disparate elements that make up In the Shadow of the Moon but what we have is a lovable mess nonetheless.
