At some point, In the Shadow of the Moon just goes down a wormhole of politics and elaborate theories. It's not fun to watch, and when we finally get the big reveal of why the killer did what she did we don't care.

A jumble that ends up falling with its own weight. Some premises have no sense. This one surpasses that. [Full review in Spanish].

Full moon or not this one will stay in the shadows.

Cop tracks killer from future; violence and language.

[Uses] all of the cliches. [Full review in Spanish]

In the Shadow of the Moon has two pretty good movies in its 115-minute runtime that just can't seem to come together.

In the Shadow of the Moon is inconsistently fascinating, often muddled, and totally ignorant of why time travel rules.

Because of Boyd Holbrook's fine performance as an obsessed police officer, I tried to stay with the complicated story. Unfortunately, this mysterious time-travel crime film is more than complicated. It's downright confusing.

An intriguing sci-fi frenzy that never lands.

Unfortunately, this film is not Zodiac, and its protagonist's obsession with a killer becomes caricature by the film's third act.

In the Shadow of the Moon is a fundamentally flawed film...Maybe someone could travel back from the future and fix this mess ... or prevent it from ever happening in the first place.
October 1, 2019
Its easily solved " mystery" makes it a watchable failure, at best.

The film tries to be so many things at once that it winds up buckling under its own weight, but that doesn't mean that the journey isn't somewhat enjoyable.

Simply aiming high isn't always enough. If the execution isn't there, a movie like In the Shadow of the Moon ends up living in the shadow of the more adventurous, less derivative films that inspired it.
September 27, 2019
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.
September 27, 2019
It's a movie built on mystery. As such, the eventual epiphanies should ring out like a clear bell, not plop with a thud like a stone in the mud.
September 27, 2019
It's nice to see Netflix taking chances, so it's too bad In the Shadow of the Moon is sluggish and stiff in all the wrong places, more wheezy dud than engaging pop.
September 26, 2019
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.
September 24, 2019
It's certainly an imaginative concept for a detective story, but the storyline gets so convoluted and baroque that unintentional humor sets in.
September 23, 2019
The most troubling part about In the Shadow of the Moon is how boring it is, but coming in at a close second is its dreadful thematic content.
