John & Becky’s Movie Review of Oblivion

oblivionposter1Becky and I went to see Oblivion last Weekend at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at Oblivion describes the movie as follows…

“In the year 2077, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) works as a security repairman on an Earth left empty and devastated after a war with aliens. Jack has two weeks left before his mission ends and he joins his fellow survivors on a faraway colony. However, Jack’s concept of reality comes crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft. The woman’s arrival triggers a chain of events that culminates in Jack’s nearly single-handed battle to save mankind…”

The Review:  Oblivion is the latest Tom Cruise flick and although he’s a nut, this movie is pretty good.  Becky didn’t like it at all, so I’ll get that right upfront about that because she doesn’t like science fiction to begin with and this is definitely a sci-fi flick.  She fell asleep for most of the movie, since we had ran an Ultra-Marathon earlier in the day and I talked her into going and seeing this movie with me and Conroy.

The movie has a good story about Earth in the future and how technologically advanced aliens had taken over the planet, only to be defeated by humans, who ended up losing the planet in the process.  It has plenty of twists and turns, including some cloning in the futuristic world.  I thought it was well done and pretty cool, but it does move slow at times.  If you’re a Tom Cruise fan you should like it, Morgan Freeman is in this movie too, but he doesn’t do much.  It’s not a great flick, but it was worth the price of admission.

Conroy and I both liked it and Becky said to skip it.

John – *** Worth The Trip
