An eye-popping thriller that actually makes its audience work to piece together its twisty plot.

Oblivion is a remarkable feat of computer-graphic design...

You could do a lot worse than this movie, that is clearly trying to bring the many classics and best of science fiction together with new ideas... gorgeous visual style and exciting special effects.
June 8, 2019
A wholly satisfying post-apocalyptic adventure that blazes new trails while channeling some of the greatest science-fiction films of all time.

Kosinski creates a good-looking film, with sweeping landscapes and some nice special effects that keep the audience interested. But that interest wanes as the story begins to unfold.

There's something sturdy and likable about the way [Joseph] Kosinski tells his big story around just a few characters, drawn together across an empty planet.
February 13, 2019
An emotionally-barren and tediously convoluted film, brimming with risible dialogue and plastic performances.
January 26, 2019
[Director Joseph Kosinski] executes his vision with excellence.

The story here can veer into the preposterous at times, as stories of this sort often do. But more important, it provides Tom Cruise lots of opportunities to look cool.

Although opulent, ambitious and populated with fine performers that try to breathe some creative life into the sporadic script, Oblivion is stiff thematically and fails to deliver a premium-plus pulse of twitchy intrigue and surging suspense
October 25, 2018
Even though the film appears unaware of its derivative storyline, that may actually work to its advantage as it stitches it all together with striking visuals.
August 2, 2018
Despite uneven scripting, the whole thing works thanks to some astonishing set-piece sequences.
June 14, 2018
Even a lively electronic score by M83, a bustling Imax presentation and Cruise at his most action-pic watchable can't make this inert film come to life.
May 23, 2018
Despite some problems with pacing and slightly flat characters, it has an interesting premise and a damn fine payoff. It's not going to change your life, but it will definitely help you escape for a little while.

Learning from those who came before you isn't exactly a heinous crime. Oblivion is an enjoyable film that makes the most of its Imax format and is vastly superior to other recent sci-fi fare like The Host.

Oblivion is basically what it would look like if Wall-E ate Blade Runner and threw it up in HALO.
September 7, 2017
It's a shame that its poor editing inhibits what could have been a memorable movie.
September 5, 2017
The bigger the screen this is watched on, the better.
August 18, 2017
In the end, was the movie's title supposed to be the state of the characters, or the audience? Were we supposed to passively sit through the film without questioning the plotholes?
July 14, 2016
Complaints about plausibility, logic, or common sense aside, Oblivion looks great.
