Audience Reviews for Oblivion

  • Dec 05, 2015
    "Oblivion" is an incredible Sci-fi/Action film. "Oblivion" has amazing acting from "Tom Cruise" and "Morgan Freeman". The plot to "Oblivion" is perfect, it's not overstuffed, and the first 10 to 15 minutes of the film aren't that interesting, but the rest of the film is incredible. The special effects are very realistic; there is only one scene in the film that looks bad. The music in "Oblivion" is perfect for the scenes; it makes scenes more and more thrilling. I highly recommend you watch "Oblivion" as it is an amazing Sci-Fi/Action film. I give "Oblivion" a 9/10.

    As soon as Morgan Freeman explains what's going on, the whole film falls apart.

    Spiffy and occasionally awe-inspiring in appearance marred by numerous head-scratching lapses of logic. The modestly budgeted 'Moon' tells a similar story much more effectively, while Tom Cruise's own 'Minority Report' offers better sci-fi thrills and surprises.

    During an alien invasion of earth, humanity finally finds a good use for all of those nuclear weapons that have otherwise been going to waste. The bad news is that while the humans won the war, they lost the peace, as the earth is now uninhabitable. So while what is left of the human race waits in their new homes on Titan, Jack(Tom Cruise) and Victoria(Andrea Riseborough) clean up their old home planet before shutting off the lights. While Jack hangs out in his man cave in his spare time, he also has dreams of a life he thinks are impossible. First, "Oblivion" takes the time to subtly tease out a tantalizing mystery that gets solved in its entirety in competent fashion. At the same time, there has to be more to a movie than simply making sense, like say fully developed characters, as this is a movie that is as hollow as its leading man, making waste of some excellent production design and special effects in the bargain. Granted, the filmmakers try to borrow some weird atmosphere from European science fiction movies but that is not really enough, either.
