Oblivion - must see!

My wife and I are seniors, but we love these kinds of movies. Good for all ages, but be advised, there is some language, especially at the end, that you may find offensive for younger kids. Tom Cruise is NOT our favorite person, but he did a really great job in this movie. The little twists and turns keep you guessing up until the end. Special effects were great and it didn't see like a fantesy. The movie took you right into the future. Had a bit of Space Odesy in it, but it fit! Overall, a great movie. Will want to see it again.

Don't listen to the critics

If you are a scifi fan, you'll love this movie. Gorgeous, slick and fast paced after the opening exposition which I didn't mind anyway. I'm tired of critics badmouthing scifi. If you want Shakespeare go see Shakespeare and leave our genre to us who love it.

Oblivious to our need for an original plot.

While the visuals in this highly CGI dependent film were spectacular in many respects, the plot left me longing for something original. The "twists" in the movie were highly predictable homages to much better sci-fi movies gone by (The Matrix, Star Wars and 2001: a Space Odyssey to name a few.) As a previous reviewer put it, "Wall-E had more heart." One of the biggest marvels to me (CGI or not?) was how well preserved Tom Cruise is at 50 despite his less-than-moving turn as yet another "Jack". However, I'd rather see him do a whole movie as Les Grosman from Tropic Thunder than yet another Sci-Fi everyman. But despite its lack of soul, I thought Oblivion was worth watching just for the spectacular visuals and a strong showing by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for those GoT fans!
