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, as is the orbital escape module from the Odyssey. The oceans have receded, land masses have craters the size of entire countries, there are no polar ice caps, and even the word Universal appears worn and damaged. See more »
The Tet is established as a brilliant machine capable of strategic planning, yet it can't figure out why Jack wants to visit after being informed of the Scavs weaponizing power cells, the fact that a large number of them are missing, and with the assumption that Jack 49 has been affected by them. Or, if it does suspect Jack's intentions, it still lets him in without an escort. It is a tough sell to assume the Tet wants Jack's "cargo" so badly to risk such an obvious attack. See more »
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 Tet can be seen in the opening Universal logo, orbiting the Earth. See more »
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 »
Brilliant writing; great performance by the actors; beautiful and realistic scenery; wit that makes us laugh, and a story we passionately follow with a proper ending that make us think about what does matter in life.
What more can one want from a movie? 9 out of 10 for what may be one of the best movies ever made in this genre.
