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...

Oblivion is an absolutely gorgeous film dramatically caught between its aspirations for poetic romanticism and the demands of heavy sci-fi...
Full Review

By William Goss
Glaringly indebted to several earlier works and the film overall remains beholden to one established brand above all others: Tom Cruise.

Oblivion occupies an awkward no-man's-land between escapist space adventure and heady science fiction, but it's neither thrilling enough...

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
By the end of the film, Leo is beginning to sound suspiciously like HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Robotic, and more than a little peeved.

Boston Globe

By Mark Feeney
Oblivion is a lot like its star: clean, cold, efficient, increasingly overblown, and not a little inexplicable.

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

Oblivion has enough special-effects artistry to keep you distracted for a while. But all the eye candy in the world can’t mask the...

For all the bells and whistles – an electronic score by M83, a screen-busting Imax presentation and Cruise going full throttle – Oblivion...

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
The mystery posed by Oblivion as a whole is why its mysteries are posed so clumsily, and worked out so murkily.

Don’t think, see it.

In art school I learned the difference between commercial art and fine art. We are constantly told in advertising and mass media what to think. In fine art it is left open for the viewer to...

Sci-Fi + Love Story = Oblivion

By MedRed
Tom Cruise is back as another "Jack" (Jack Harper, Jack Reacher, Jack from Legend, Stacie Jaxx). OK, that last one was a stretch. Oblivion is a visually stunning, IMAX worthy movie. The special...

Obliviously Awesome!

By FabAnt2010
I had my doubts about this movie at first for, lets face it.. Tom Cruise ain't no MI anymore but I was proven wrong! It had a @Prometheus like feel to it but none the less left me at the edge of my...

So much better than I thought

By SoundShore
I would be shocked if this movie doesn't get an overall Must See from the Fans. It is clever, great script, the technicals are fabulous, characters were developed, It feels like a more slick Matrix...

Not at all what I expected

By rpotter22222
Expecting a Minority Report meets Mission Impossible, I came away pleasantly surprised. The story of a destroyed Earth and survivors trying to live has become cliché. This Earth is trying to come...

Fun with plenty of twists and turns

I saw it last night with my fiancée. We both liked it a lot. It was very entertaining with many twists and turns. I recommend it....

Long, confusing and just not good

By jsmd
I really had high hopes for this movie. Although Tom is a few bricks short of a load there is something compelling about him on the big screen. He is just not given much here. The movie takes forever...

Simple equation:

By cebrown820
Wall-E + Prometheus + The Matrix = Oblivion. The concept in itself is original, but only in the sense that Taco Bell does new things with the same 5 ingredients. Too many things directly pulled...

Solid B-series sci-fi action flick

By opfister
Cruise does the job, as usual. Cast is very good. Story has interesting twists. Special effects and sceneries are nice. It's all well made and solid. Not that thought-provoking, just a nice piece of...

Lots of information missing from the movie, the important information is subtle, but I think there are a lot of holes in the movie, and it could have been taking a little further. Some confusion...
