Editorial Reviews

Review

"Science Fiction for the big boys... Can and does stand up to the best-of-the-best in Sci Fi literature and cinema." --Michael Kenneth, Maverick Movie Awards

"A ripping good story well told. Winningly makes sense out of modern day conspiracy theories." --Hoyt Harris, KATC TV (ABC)

Product Description

When two documentary filmmakers find evidence of a hidden base on the moon, they quickly become entangled in uncovering a secret history of earth that was meant to be long forgotten. After a threatening encounter with the dangerous and reclusive 'Church of Lunology,' they flee their homes only to encounter David James, a man who unravels the truth behind every conspiracy theory - from UFOs and time travel to immortality and life on the moon. The cameras continue rolling as they discover earth's secret history, and a makeshift time-machine that could unlock the very gateway to eternal life. Time is almost up, but their story cannot end until they face head-on the most powerful and dangerous religious cult in the history of the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sci-Fi Fan May Appreciate This One February 18, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a different sort of film that may be of interest to the sci-fi fan but probably not of much interest to those who are not in the fan category. Some men are making an amateur documentary that makes a significant discovery involving a city on the moon and efforts by a secret group to rewrite history using a time machine.

The camera work is deliberately amateurish with shots of ground, feet and other extraneous items that try to lend an air of authenticity to the documentary and make it appear to be done by amateurs who are using the camera to tell their story. The interesting thing to me was it held my attention sufficiently for me to want to watch it to the end. I watched the instant video version and suggest that alternative until you've seen it and can determine if you would like to buy the disc.

The story is complicated enough where one may want to watch it more than once if one has a desire to better understand what is going on. I'll admit it made an impression on me that kept me from simply dismissing it without watching it to the end. You may want to check this one out.

4.0 out of 5 stars No budget film. Well done! September 15, 2011
Format:DVD
I met and talked with the filmmaker and it's amazing how little was spent making this film. It shows through in some places, but overall it feels like a real documentary with real experts chiming in on people who actually live on the moon. This may put Avant up there with directors like Robert Rodriguez and Wes Anderson who had humble beginnings and didn't let the fact that they didn't have a million dollars stop them from saying "Let's make a movie."

5.0 out of 5 stars blown away January 12, 2012
Format:DVD
I watched this movie not expecting much, but being a huge conspiracy fan I figured it was worth a shot. I was right. Its done in a docudrama style which I have never really liked but this one nailed it. The pacing is perfect. I really hope they make a sequel. Kind of makes me wonder if the people who came up with this script know something the rest of us dont know and just let us in on a big secret. This could be the best movie I have watched in 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting July 3, 2012
By Kasia
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I like this movie , I will call it documentary as what you see supposed to be true , someone uploaded a movie on internet exposing the truth about people moving in time using mysterious stone found on the moon , if you like sort of movies like this then it is for you , I found it quiet interesting , very clever made , it is not typical movie , it is something that will make you think , so if you looking for special cgi effects and popcorn look for something different .

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding independent film July 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a low budget production for certain and it is more or less the creation of one guy (Matthew Avant), who wrote, directed and starred in the thing. Most such efforts aren't very good.
This one is excellent. Others have compared it to the "Blair Witch Project" -I suppose it is comparable in mockumentary filming style, but it's actually much better as a film. BWP is better known due to their clever viral marketing; this one deserves to be better known, as it is far superior. The story is fairly implausible, even for science fiction, involving time travel, weird physics (that admittedly doesn't make much sense) and people who live on the moon. On the other hand, I found it completely riveting, very spooky and evocative. The acting is generally pitch perfect (there are a few bad performances in a fairly big cast -I'm assuming some or most of the folks weren't professional actors), the characterization is strong, and the dramatic tension is high through the whole film. This guy can really tell a story, and he didn't need an enormous budget, Hollywood cast, fancy sets, lots of extraneous whooshing sounds or wacky CGI special effects to make it work. Mr. Avant seemed to be involved in producing commercials before his film debut: I hope this made him enough money to continue in his film career, as this was really something special.
I plan on googling the bejeepers out of this film, to find some film buffs managed to find it, and who liked it enough to review it favorably: this might be a gateway into finding more such treasures. I know lots of folks make little movies like this, and some of them must be this good. Anything to bypass the preposterous Hollyweird films made for nincompoops who enjoy slow motion action scenes, CGI special effects and preposterous whooshing sounds.
Science fiction fans will enjoy it. Fans of suspenseful movies will also like it. Frankly, if you do not like this movie, you do not like skilled storytelling and well designed story arcs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the first half April 17, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The first 45 minutes were good, with some of the feel of an especially creepy episode of X-Files, Fringe, or Ghosthunters. The settings are mostly moody, crumbling, abandoned buildings, and the film does a very good job of creating mystery and suspense. Occasionally the writing and acting are a little rocky, but over all it worked well in the first half.

But then the format suddenly shifts, from pseudo-documentary footage to a more than 20 minutes of talking heads, laying out an elaborate backstory that combines pretend physics with a satire of Scientology. There's no more mystery or plot; everything's laid out for us all at once. The film tries to re-establish the tension for the last half hour, but the storytelling is more confusing than intriguing.

Lunopolis has its moments, though not many. Ambitious but too often amateurish, this had the potential to be a really good film. In fact, I think it deserves to be remade. Read more
