Why should you watch Moonshot?

Moonshot is a sci-fi rom-com directed by Christopher Winterbauer. In this movie, we can see the ever-dashing Cole Sprouse starring opposite Lana Condor, who became notable after “To All the Boys”. The primary reason to watch Moonshot is to witness the chemistry between Sprouse and Conor. They played the characters Walt and Sophie respectively in the movie. And if you see the film you can witness how different these two (Walt and Sophie) personalities are. Sprouse’s character was goofy yet ambitious. On the contrary, Sophie’s innocent face is enough to convey what she wants in her character. Both characters along with the other supportive cast work well to portray the thought behind the script. 

The out-of-this-world location, scenes, and picturization take you to another world literally, although these shots are seen only a few times. It is no less than a treat for the lovers of a sci-fi movie with a hint of romance and a mild comedy. On the contrary, the ending is quite predictable. If you expect any surprise element, it may not meet it. 

Christopher Winterbauer as a director makes it possible for us to imagen; how a love story blossoms outside of the world. The film is not a time travel, it is just a cheery way to spend some good time with your loved ones. Overall, Moonshot is one of those romcoms, which is good-natured and has a hard-to-resist premise. It is going to be a light comic and fun experience for its viewers for sure.


  • In a shot, when Sophie plays a board game with her family is a real game named, Terraforming Mars which was released in 2016.

  • It is the Iowa State University’s Campus where the college drone scene was shot. Like the movie, the campus also has an aerospace engineering major.
