For the Creator/{{Sega}} game based on the movie, see ''VideoGame/MichaelJacksonsMoonwalker''. Not to be confused with ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'' nor the one shot manga ''Moon Walker''.

* RuleOfCool: Aside from activating some background objects, the moonwalk in the Genesis game has no real function. It just looks awesome.

* "Smooth Criminal" -- The centerpiece segment, taking up about half the film total, has Michael battling a drug-peddling supervillain (JoePesci) and his goons for the sake of his kid friends and children the world over. By the end, Michael has turned himself into a spaceship to achieve this goal. (Would it surprise you to learn that Michael himself came up with this storyline?) Note to fans of film music: the DavidNewman credited as the screenwriter is not the composer.

* MoonwalkDance: Duh! Though Jackson only performs it a few times during the music video of "Smooth Criminal". Earlier in the film a cop gives him a ticket for moonwalking on the road in a "No moonwalking zone".
