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...

Oblivion storms into blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.39:1 encode. Photographed digitally with the Red Epic camera system, this video transfer is simply flawless and stunning. Director Joseph Kosinski's technically artistic eye is always present. Take for example the sky home that Jack and Victoria live in. That isn't green screen you're seeing outside. It's a modern take on front projection (see trivia below for detailed explanation). Those are real clouds and real sunsets. Many of his in-camera techniques lend themselves to making a spotless high-def presentation. Almost every scene is in stunning clarity. Colours are cold and sterile. Contrast is perfect, with deep and solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is sharp and clear, with detail mind-blowingly clear: everything from the tiniest reflection in the sleek futuristic surfaces of the sky home, to the majesty of Cruise's ageless hair follicles. There is no IMAX aspect ratio shifting like The Dark Knight, but using anamorphic lens, the realistic futuristic scenery fills up my entire 12 foot wide screen, which is simply awesome. (5+/5)


The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix is just as impressive. The electronic techno beat pulses, with an unmistakable and unforgettable bass, reminded me of a Daft Punk soundtrack, like Tron: Legacy. It rumbles passionately causing complete sensory enjoyment. The movie's action uses pinpoint directionality. As the bubble ship flies through slim canyons, it seamlessly transports its sound from speaker to speaker creating the illusion that it's flying across your living room. The added side channels provide a wonderfully enveloping ambiance that truly makes the presentation demo material. The overall effect is a very immersive experience.

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 ›
