Completely unoriginal plot, brings nothing new to the table. Good cinematography by Claudio Miranda, Tom Cruise is horrendous.

Oblivion was definitely well made but the story seemed to just sputter out somewhere around 60 minutes in. I was completely engaged and interested as we learned about this repair crew who had the left overs of earth to themselves. They could have ran with that single idea for 2 hours and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have complained. All is not lost though, visually, Oblivion was a blast and M83 did a great job with the soundtrack. If you like science fiction movies you should probably add this to your watch list but don't expect too much. Overall, you'll probably be disappointed.

I guess I am the rare viewer who enjoyed this movie. But I tend to cut some slack for sci-if movies. I don’t carefully parse out the special effects or pull out a book on physics to make sure every detail is kosher. As long as I am entertained, the plot doesn’t insult my intelligence, and the dialogue is realistic and if possible witty, I am in for the duration. Early in the movie I thought I spotted a rather large plot hole and I thought, Oh-oh, but I waded through it. Then later I was pleasantly surprised to find they had subtly explained what I had thought was a mistake, and it wasn’t. Perhaps this wasn’t just a space opera with romance and action. I had to pay attention. I wouldn’t call it a cerebral sci-fi movie, but I am glad I stuck with it.

Love this movie! There seams to be material for much more than just the one, but maybe it's just that feeling after a good movie that it ended too soon. I watch movies to be entertained, and I don't care too much about realism especially in SciFi movies, maybe that's why I enjoy watching Oblivion again and again.
