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 to get going. The first 45mins are painfully dull. The entire storyline is confusing. Morgan Freeman is little more than a 15 min prop. I hope he got paid well for the 1 day he must have been on the set to film his part. With Apple TV and a 60 Sony Bravia and and Arcam/Definitive audio set up I enjoy most movies more at home. This one looked like it needed the big screen and some of the shots are quite good but it is not enough to save this turkey. If 75% of the people seeing this movie like it than I would hate to endure the movies the dislike.

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.

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 from the above movies, in my opinion. Plus a little bit of the Jetsons thrown in for good measure.
That being said, it's worth seeing. Awesome visuals. Keeps you guessing.

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 entertainment. I enjoyed it.

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 after the movie. But good enough to go and see for yourself.
