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.

Cruise finds a worthy opponent

I try to like all films or at least focus on what I like but this one made it difficult. The funniest thing I can say is that to watch TC fight TC was a treat... Finally someone up to the awesomeness. All other characters are less than one dimensional and twist are more predictible than a crueller at Starbucks. Oblivian of redbox is where you will find this fine gem.

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!
