  • For all the bells and whistles – an electronic score by M83, a screen-busting Imax presentation and Cruise going full throttle – Oblivion feels arid and antiseptic, untouched by human hands. Bummer. show more

  • After a slow start, this is the rare film that gets better as it goes along. The story, about two scientists working in a post-apocalyptic New York, deepens and builds an intense rooting interest. The action sequences are too much out of a video game, but this is intelligent science fiction -- and it benefits enormously from Tom Cruise in the lead role. show more

  • Oblivion is a slick spectacle — seeing the humorless but ultra-fit Tom Cruise wrestle with himself might be worth the price of admission alone. show more

    I agree that this movie covers a lot of what other movies have done better, it\'s still quite good. Especially compared to most of the movies this year. The plot twist was hinted at a little much and didn\'t have much impact when they finally got to it, but otherwise a good movie.
