A surprising success. Reminiscent, in style and manner, of the sci-fi films of the 1970s, 'Oblivion' is full of energy, ideas, and philosophical concepts. Many of the below-par reviews it's been receiving have attacked it for being derivative of previous films, in that 'we've-seen-it-all-before', but they've been missing the point, as, in this case, it works, in fact, as a function in beckoning you on, with the comfort of you knowing what you are seeing and experiencing, to watch further and be enthralled - and if anything, in a world of unnecessary sequels, reboots, prequels, and needless superhero-films, this little film, with a story all of its own, be it that it has a big Hollywood star, comes across as a shining light. Tom Cruise, who's excellent in the lead role (not something you could easily say of the actor, from his recent outings), plays 'Jack Harper', one of the last survivors of Earth left stationed on the planet as part of an operation to extract vital resources, after a war with a 'threat' only known as the 'Scavs' has ended. However, when he rescues a stranger he seems to have deep-rooted memories of, everything he believes in, including his very existence, comes into question. From the offset, the film is beautifully shot, with spectacular scenery and environment, exposing a futuristic world that has undergone an apocalyptical disaster; it is literally spellbounding, the sheer detail and vision that has gone into it (which includes the advanced technology the world of the film exposes) - almost like a piece of art. For those wanting mindless action-sequence after mindless action-sequence, this will be a disappointment, as the film works more as a novel, in that the tension and intrigue build at a gradual steady pace, an intellectual pace, as the plot starts to unfold.Read more ›

Oblivion turned out to be a thoroughly good sci-fi with everything a good sci-fi should have. The soundtrack was good, the scenery and sets epic, the props great and most importantly, the story was pretty engaging.

It was intriguing, clever and not only drew you in but kept you guessing. The twist at the end too was also pretty good. all in all, one of the better films I've seen recently. It's not perfect, but it's not far off.

This is obviously a big budget film and it's been money well spent. It looked great and kept me entertained - not just visually; it got the old grey matter going as well.

I liked this film. It is not an immortal master-piece, but it is well made. Below, some more of my impressions, with limited SPOILERS.

Year of Grace 2079. After a devastating war against alien invaders, Moon was broken in pieces and Earth was left a barren, poisoned desolation. The aliens were in principle defeated but what was left of humanity had to move to Titan, which is now being slowly terraformed. The ruined Earth was abandoned to two categories of inhabitants - the Scavs, a handful of alien survivors, stranded castaways barely managing to survive miserably one day at a time and the two lonely humans, Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) and Jack (Tom Cruise) who supervise the last stage of evacuation of the planet, which includes pumping and carrying away what remains of uncontaminated water on Earth by robotic installations and automated cargo ships.

Jack does the most dangerous job by flying daily repair and maintenance missions, mostly fixing combat drones, which protect the installations from the desperate and aggressive Scavs. From their flying house, a safe refuge out of reach of Scavs, Victoria watches over him, warns him of dangers and if necessary musters drones to help him. It is a harsh and quite sad life, but they have one another for comfort - and also their task will soon be over.

But Jack is not well. He doesn't sleep well since some time and every morning wakes up more and more tired, exhausted by strange dreams which repeat themselves - dreams in which he meets a strange Woman (Olga Kurylenko), a woman he can not remember ever knowing, but who nevertheless seems surprisingly familiar... And then, one day after he wakes up for another day of work on the surface, the film really begins...

In the year 2077 Jack (Tom Cruise) and Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) are a working couple who live in a tower on the planet earth. We are given the background: Aliens called Scavengers or "Scavs" destroyed the moon. The earth went into turmoil. We managed to defeat them through the use of nuclear weapons. With our planet uninhabitable, our people went to live on Titan. An orbiting triangle space station gives orders to Jack whose mission is to maintain an army of drones used to hunt the remnants of the scavengers.

Jack's memory was erased in case aliens capture him. He has dreams of a woman (Olga Kurylenko)in NYC from a time long before the invasion. About the time Morgan Freeman shows up, things tie together, we get the twist, and the film takes off in a different direction.

The characters in the film are dry. The dialouge was boring. The action moved slow with the film definitely being too long. I enjoyed the one early scene where Cruise attempts a "Mission Impossible" type of escape, one that fails. The cinematography was great with a decent story line. If you love science fiction and are tired of those SyFy films, this is a welcomed change with neat killer drones and landscapes.

I am sure Cruise didn't have to beat himself up too much to accept the role of Luke Skywalker, Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith, Independence), and Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis, Armageddon) all wrapped into one as he saves the world from alien invaders. This film is an obvious Scientology propaganda film just like "Battlefield Earth". Tom Cruise believes, according to "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief" that he will actually save the planet from alien invaders. Gotta love it.

Parental Guide: 1 f-bombs (1 SOB) no sex, no real nudity. Brief sensuality. Brief Riseborough buttocks (?).
