Riddler's Moon has a great cast, original setting and writers that avoid cliche'.
8 November 1998 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Riddler's Moon is a good aliens-come-down-for-some-mysterious-reason sci-fi movie. The writers were able to create a decent level of "suspension of disbelief" and that always helps one enjoy a movie. The cast really added to the overall production. Daniel Newman gives a very realistic portrayal of a teenage boy with a disability that requires him to be in a wheelchair. Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek Voyager's Capt. Janeway) is refreshing in the role of a hard-working single mother. Corbin Bernsen is the surprisingly non-cliche town drunk. The story DOES NOT take place in LA or New York or any other overly used location. The story DOES involve mysterious visitors from who-knows-where, but I won't spoil that part for you. However, I will say that I would have liked to learn more about the visitors. Riddler's Moon is a "Made for TV" production which usually means so-so special effects and a weak plot. Thankfully, this was not the case here. Overall, I was very impressed with Riddler's Moon.
