A veteran assigned to extract Earth's remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.
Oblivion is an entertaining science-fiction film and it delivers unexpected surprises that keep you in tune with the story. Oblivion reminded me of previous science-fiction films I've seen before, but it's somewhat original. This film is very predictable and derivative throughout.
Oblivion will keep you in suspense and the music is awesome. I loved the theme song "Oblivion" by M83 and Susanne Sundfør (plays during the end credits, so make sure you stay for this). The visuals are stunning, but lacks orginality. The swimming pool in the sky is very cool (I agree Alex Cavanaugh). The performances are well done, especially by Cruise. Oblivion runs at 125 minutes and it may feel overlong to some people. I was immersed in the story, so time flew by fast for me.
I enjoyed Oblivion for its entertaining premise, but it could've been better. I highly recommend this film, especially for science-fiction fans. B-
