well really..there isn't much to say about this movie. It started off slow, weak, boring and just built up to, a little more intensity and excitement, bu really overall a weak and lame plot, and a stupid movie which made no sense and was pointless. Also the actresses in the movie were stupid, figured they could get better stars in there and cruise was Ok but still not that good...
morgan freeman played the usual lame character with no personality as he does in all the movies he's in...is he even a good actor? and tom cruise has the same intense look with whatever, as he does as well. the movie was a tribute to mediocreness and boring sci-fi. ok yes a pyramidal creature thing takes over the planet, with machines, and creates replicas of one person...the entire movie was just pointless, stupid dreary and lame. also, the ugly white girl who serves as cruise's vixen like partner/love interest..i mean they can't get better looking women in these roles? just ugly average women? come on..

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.

This was a pretty good movie. The music and a couple of scenes gave me flash backs to 'Legend'. I was disappointed I didn't see Satan...

Oblivion was a movie wanting to be great but ended up being just "pretty good". Not going to give away anything, but I'll say that the movie had me all the way up until a certain point in the movie (quite far into it, in fact) and then kind of became a little less than what it was on track to be. This movie keeps you interested with great concepts, good visuals, mostly-unexpected plot twists, and good characterizations.
Overall, it was good choice for Mr. Cruise.
