Plot summary

What is Moonfall movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Moonfall" movie plot summary.

Astronaut Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson) is working on a satellite on a 2011 Space Shuttle mission, when a mysterious black swarm attacks the mission and kills a crewmate. Back on Earth, nobody believes his explanation, human error is blamed, and Harper is fired.
Ten years later, conspiracy theorist KC Houseman (John Bradley), who believes the Moon is an artificial megastructure, steals time on a telescope and discovers that the Moon's orbit is getting closer to Earth. He attempts to share his findings with Harper, who dismisses him, leading KC to go public on social media.
NASA mounts a mission launched on an SLS Block 2 to investigate the abnormality. The swarm attacks and kills all three crew members, after they drop a probe into a kilometers deep artificial hole in the Moon.
As the Moon falls closer to earth, cataclysmic disasters mount: tsunamis, gravity abnormalities, and atmospheric dissipation. It is revealed within NASA that Apollo 11 discovered the abnormalities in the Moon, and the two minute blackout was to block out inexplicable data, in which the Moon supposedly resonated strongly from the impact of Apollo 11's jettisoned fuel tank. A program called ZX7 created an EMP to attempt to kill the swarm, which is brought out of storage. A Space Shuttle is brought out of a museum and prepared for launch. KC, Harper, and deputy director Jocinda "Jo" Fowler (Halle Berry) launch with the EMP, narrowly escaping a tsunami.
As they enter the Moon, they discover that the swarm is siphoning off energy generated by a white dwarf at the center of the Moon, causing the artificial megastructure's orbit to destabilize, due to its power source being compromised. The megastructure was constructed by ancestors of humanity, billions of years in the past, as an ark while fleeing artificial intelligence that grew too strong and attacked. The swarm is one of those AIs that found the Moon, which was the last ark. Following the Moon impact with the Earth which resulted in a total catastrophic destruction, The President gave the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Jenkins (Frank Schorpion) order to launch a Nuclear Strike towards the Moon. However the Air Force Chief of Staff, General Doug Davidson (Eme Ikwuakor) refused to carry out the Nuclear Strike order, so that he can save the lives of his former wife, Fowler, and both Harper and Houseman.
