Overall it was halfway decent. I honestly saw most of the plot twists coming, but the visuals and tech made up for it. I would recommend seeing it as a matinee or catching it in the 2nd run theaters

3 3/4's--Pretty good, and that's saying a lot for me...because I swore off Tom Cruise movies a long time ago. However, this one I stuck with. VERY confusing, but good at the same time. I most definitely needed someone with me (in this case my husband) to occasionally explain thin...

I think they had a good idea here but then when they actually got down to writing down the story it all just went wrong. It just didn't flow and there was "umph" to this film.

Likable but ultimately forgettable. It's something we've seen before but with better graphics. How come so many world landmarks are all next to each other? How come the Empire State building is the only one left standing? Why didn't he keep the Dog? None of these questions matter...

Oblivion is a beautiful movie, and it's always good to see an original sci-fi film now and then. Unfortunately, its style only takes this post-apocalyptic journey so far. The film is hamstrung by characters that are as barren as the desolate landscapes they traverse, and the scie...

A spectacular and mind-blowing epic. A provocative and intense triumph, that returns to the grandest form of science fiction. It's a visionary, groundbreaking and explosive cinematic piece of work that shines as one of the most original and exciting films in years. It delivers an...

This is the kind of SciFi I like. I was even able to get over the lead being Tom Cruise!
