Oblivion: The state of being completely forgotten or unknown. This gave me a great feeling of not knowing what our history of Earth was in 2077, making me wonder what happened to us. That was directed stupendously by Joseph Kosinski, (who’s also directed Tron: Legacy), and also wrote the graphic novel that it’s based on eight years ago. It stars Tom Cruise as Jack, who faultlessly holds true to his movie motif of running. His co-stars are Olga Kurylenko as Julia, and Andrea Riseborough as Victoria. Oblivion’s story is about a veteran repairman assigned to extract Earth’s remaining resources and he begins to question what he knows about his mission, and his life.
Oblivion was incredibly stunning in its visuals and its impact of places that you recognize instantly but you wonder, “How in the world did that happen?” The new technology that’s shown is both futuristic yet believable and is really interesting to see. Oblivion kept me so focused and wondering that I forgot to eat my popcorn. The action is gripping and suspenseful, yet it’s not overdone or overplayed. I will have to go see it again so I can give a better review on it but just to get this out there to you, the readers, I had to write this.
This is a movie you must see in theaters, it’s absolutely captivating and well worth whatever your theaters prices are to see. My rate: 9/10.
