Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the visionary director of TRON: Legacy and producers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. 2077: Jack Harper (Cruise) serves as a security repairmen stationed on an evacuated Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying alien threat who still scavenges what’s left of our planet, Jack’s mission is almost complete. In a matter of two weeks, he will join the remaining survivors on a lunar colony far from the war-torn world he has long called home. Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack’s soaring existence is brought crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Drawn to Jack through a connection that transcends logic, her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he thought he knew. With a reality that is shattered as he discovers shocking truths that connect him to Earth of the past, Jack will be pushed to a heroism he didn’t know he contained within. The fate of humanity now rests solely in the hands of a man who believed our world was soon to be lost forever. (c)Universal
As I have said before, I am a big Tom Cruise fan. I was really excited to see Oblivion. After viewing the film, both my friend and I really enjoyed this movie.
Visually, Oblivion is fantastic. I actually got to screen Oblivion in IMAX. I would definitely recommend watching it in this format. This movie takes place in originally what would have been New York City if Earth hadn’t been evacuated. I loved the filmmakers interpretation of a destroyed Earth. All of the special effects in this movie were great from the flying scenes, to the backgrounds, and the battle scenes. Visually, you will not be disappointed with the movie.
I really thought the cast was really great in this movie. I think that it was really up to Tom Cruise to make this movie work and he does. This is really his movie. I really enjoyed Morgan Freeman’s performance as well but he is not in the movie a lot.
This is a movie I would definitely put into the sci-fi category. It had some moments that I would say were definitely different. There are some really great plot twists and some of them actually really surprised me. This movie will make you think.
I really liked Oblivion and would definitely watch it again.
Oblivion gets bragging rights!
