Oblivion is a groundbreaking cinematic event starring Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, the lone security repairman stationed on a desolate, nearly-ruined future Earth. When he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft, her arrival triggers a nonstop chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows, and leaves humanity's fate in his hands. Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman joins Cruise in this "visually stunning" (Pete Hammond, Movieline), explosive story from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough
Joseph Kosinski (Director)
I think that most of the people who are bad mouthing this movie are doing so because they expect ALL "sci-fi" movies to be "action" movies. I think this movie, while it has a goodly amount of action, is primarily a thinking person's science fiction movie (as opposed to a "sci-fi" movie, which these days is nearly synonymous with fantasy). If you want to be spoon fed a lot of explosions, gunfights, high-tech gadgets and creepy-looking, murderous xenomorphs (i.e.—aliens), then you will probably NOT enjoy this movie. However, if you don't mind paying attention to events as they unfold, and keeping track of said events from beginning to end, then you probably will enjoy this movie. I know that I thoroughly enjoyed it because it WASN'T your typical weakly-plotted, unscientific, action-oriented, "sci-fi" movie (think ANY of the Transformer movies). Is its science 100 percent accurate? No. But, it wasn't so GROSSLY inaccurate as to take me out of the plot, and make me ENTIRELY dismiss the premise of the movie. I found this film to be a welcome change of pace from most of the recent "sci-fi" movies, and I highly recommend it.

VIDEO: 2.39:1 • Color • 1080p • MPEG-4 AVC (35.9 Mbps)
This movie features images that are very sharp, with great apparent depth, excellent shadow detail, and great contrast — and, they also possess a muted (and, sometimes, nearly monochromatic) color-palette that works very well with the tone of the source material. Fine detail is readily visible in all of the close-ups of faces, clothing, furnishings and machines — without any apparent edge-enhancement. Also, while there is some very mild banding on rare occasions (mainly, in the scene where Jack (Tom Cruise) uses his flashlight in the (now) subterranean library), there are no other anomalies to mar the image. Overall, this movie's picture quality is excellent — and, it should satisfy the VAST majority of viewers.
AUDIO: DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 (48 KHz, 24-bit)
The sound quality and mix of the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack is nearly reference quality. This soundtrack has most of the things that you want, sound-wise, in a movie; namely: very intelligible and well placed dialog, very deep bass in the front, side, rear and subwoofer channels, fairly active and mostly directional sound effects in ALL (i.e.—front, side and rear) channels, ambient and environmental sounds that are effective in communicating the location of the on-screen setting and action, and well recorded music (that is utilized effectively in the front AND surround channels). Overall, the sound presentation for this movie should satisfy all but the very pickiest of listeners.
EXTRAS: Director's Commentary (also featuring Tom Cruise)
Several 'Making Of' Type Videos
Isolated Musical Score
None of the extras were reviewed.
but he's a great actor, and since almost everything he does is rated PG-13, you're not dodging F-bombs and nudity when you have teen kids at home.
There's a lot to this movie,
the plot is solid,
I thought I picked up on some plot holes the first time I watched it,
but saw they were actually all covered the second time through.
Also plenty of sci-fi tidbits to keep your interest up.
Character drama (with the small number of actual characters that are in the movie),
action, and special effects were decent as well.
For my $7.88, the multi-format version also came with Ultraviolet Digital rights,
I've watched it a few times now without even ever loading the Blu-ray.
Once we get past the underlying political statement being made about what happens when everything goes wrong, this is actually a well done movie with a pretty awesome ending. Cruise, as he does whether it's in Mission Impossible, Top Gun, Edge of Tomorrow or Jack Reacher, takes what in many ways would be an average movie and moves it up several notches. I was wavering somewhere between 4 and 5 stars and what pushed my rating to 5 stars was the 4K Ultra HD HDR rendition of this release which was just a prime example of why people should upgrade their systems to 4K.....one word....."awesome!"
I thought the film was going to have its problems. I really did. The plot started making me angry as we got into Act 3. Why did the writer have to make the decisions they did to bring about the ending of the story? I usually see endings coming, and I should have with this one. But the way that it was executed was masterful. I might even end up buying the blu-ray of this so I can watch it with commentary and all that good stuff in the near future.
I checked the Rotten Tomatoes rating and the overall Amazon rating. Coupled with the great price for the HD version, I decided to try it out. I was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst (I am still stinging from losing two hours of my life watching Cloud Atlas). I really enjoyed this movie.
Good story, good action, great special effects. It's not a top 10 movie for me (or even top 50), but it was well worth the watch.
I was curious why many people gave it a bad review and why it didn't do well in the theater. I saw review titles mentioning plot holes and such. For fear of ruining the enjoyment I had already received watching this movie, I didn't read those bad reviews. I will catch continuity errors and plot holes in some movies, but not all, and those elements must not have been as apparent in this movie as others. Ignorance is bliss in this case.
