Brief synopsis: A policeman makes detective in the late eighties after killing a seemingly vicious serial killer whose signature of killing is to liquifies the brains of her victims. Nine years later, she returns. The detective catches up with her again and she tells him that she is trying to save the world. Is it any good?: In The Shadow of the Moon begins well and is quite gripping for the first hour. Unfortunately, after that it hits the bumpers a bit, turning into a confusing sci-fi come conspiracy thriller. An interesting premise ruined by an overcomplicated, too-smart-for-its-own-good script. The ever smarter than your average bear James Cameron already did a similar story you might have heard of.
