John Moore was born, reared and educated in Ireland. He started his career as a news cameraman, and then worked as an assistant cameraman in feature films helmed by the acclaimed filmmakers Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan.
When Moore turned to directing commercials, his innovative work, rich with state-of-the-art special effects, earned him worldwide recognition. His work included notable spots for Adidas, Guinness and SEGA. Shortly after his 1999 spot for SEGA debuted on the MTV Music Video Awards, Twentieth Century Fox and Davis Entertainment gave Moore the assignment to make his feature directorial debut on Behind Enemy Lines, an action-adventure starring Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson.
Following the success of Behind Enemy Lines, Moore accepted a studio production/development deal with Fox and started a production company, Point Road. In 2004 he directed Flight of the Phoenix, starring Dennis Quaid and Giovanni Ribisi.
