In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
One of the few remaining drone repairmen assigned to Earth, its surface devastated after decades of war with the alien Scavs, discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that bring into question everything he believed about the war, and may even put the fate of mankind in his hands.Written by
The opening scene when the Universal logo appears offers the viewer a quick survey of how damaged the earth is in the film. The Tet is in orbit, the oceans are nearly dry, land masses have craters the size of entire countries, there are no polar ice caps, and even the word Universal appears worn, damaged, and rusted.

When Jack 49 and 52 struggle for a weapon, it discharges and the blast strikes another character. Said character is shown to have a heavily bleeding wound as a result, similar to that which may occur with a ballistic weapon. However, all Tet-provided weapons are energy based and as such would cause a non-bleeding cauterized wound, if not a complete disintegration as is the case with larger vehicle-mounted weapons.

Earth, before the war. New York, before I was born. A place I've only seen pictures of. I know you... But we've never met. I'm with you... But I don't know your name. I know I'm dreaming. But it feels like more than that. It feels like a memory. How can that be?

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
One of the best Sci-Fi movies ever made . My self being a avid fan of Sci Fi movies and book fan. Has the right body in the start, the body of the story and the ending. each area was just right with the right amount of story line , emotion and suspense with a very clever write up. Super performance by Tom cruise,Olga Kurylenko,Andrea Riseborough and of course Morgan freeman.
Tribute the director and producer and all the staff who made it happen. Its been a while where was able to watch a good Sci-fi flick. With this one , it hit the bulls-eye.
the sound track is amazing , applause M83 and the beautiful voice of Susan Sunanne Sundffor
A true winner- My personal rating 10/10. I cannot imagine anything which could have been done better.
