Trivia

There are two scenes in this movie that are very similar to Mission: Impossible III (2006). The first is when Jack is in the library retreating. The walkway bridge he used is taken out. He is forced to throw his rifle across first, then jumping over, barely making it, as he pulls himself up. This scene is very similar to Mission: Impossible III. When the drone takes out part of the bridge as Owen Davian is escaping, Ethan throws his rifle across as he jumps over, barely making it, and pulling himself up. The second scene (in Mission: Impossible III) is when Ethan is about to inject Anna with Adrenaline. He grabs her, and says "This is going to hurt", then injects her. A very similar scene was shot in Oblivion, when Jack grabs Julia (after she had been shot, in the desert scene) and says "This is going to hurt", then injects her. Julia is also the name of Ethan's wife in Mission: Impossible III (2006). See more »

Goofs

Julia looks still young after 60 years of sleep. She might be young if her spacecraft would have been traveling at the speed of light., but this spacecraft has been orbiting the Earth for 60 years, so she should be in her 80s. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jack Harper: 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?

Fantastic visual effects ensure a gripping and entertaining film
17 April 2013 | by ollyc123See all my reviews

Before seeing this film in theaters it was tough to know what to expect. It immediately grasped my attention as the storyline was so different than anything I have seen as of late. Tom Cruise is the perfect man for the lead role, and does not fail to deliver a good performance. If you are a relatively simple person with a short attention span you may become a bit dazed and confused as to why certain components of the film are occurring, but it adds up in the end beyond measure. Although 'Oblivion' forces you to work slightly harder than usual in understanding the plot and each twist that it takes, it all comes together very well in this thrilling yet slightly confusing film. No doubt one of Kosinski's best so far.
