Did You Know?

Trivia

The NASA logo mostly used in the film is the "worm" logotype which was used by the agency from 1975 until 1992. However, during the "Odyssey" on-board scenes the classic NASA logo can also be seen. See more »

Goofs

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 »

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.
