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
When tracing the signal to the Empire State Building, the lat/long co-ordinates are shown as 41.14N 73.97W. In reality they should be 40.74N 73.98W. This is either an error, or an indication that an event took place that changed the orientation of the Earth's axis. Reviewing the general state of the place at large, the latter seems probable.

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 Universal logo in this film is a representation of the Earth in the year 2077 in the film, and the text of the word "Universal" is rusted. 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 »
GREAT FOR THE SCIENCE FICTION FAN! And maybe everyone!
They don't make many science fiction films these days. This was a pleasant surprise all throughout the film. Man did I like this film.
And in my opinion. Tom Cruise really likes what he does, and works at his craft as an actor very seriously. In my opinion 95% of Cruises movies in the last 10 years have been good choices. And I'm sick of what the media says about his personal life.
I am one who went and saw Prometheus with an open mind. And listened to what the director said about it NOT being an Aliens movie. And LOVED IT. Good Sci-fi. Such as this film.
It definitely turned out to be something I wasn't expecting.
Excellent Job by Everyone involved. Nice work Cruise!
