Oblivion takes you to a post-apocalyptic future set in 2077 after an alien invasion destroys half the planet and its moon. Jack Harper played by the amazing Tom Cruise goes to the surface on a regular basis to repair drones while his partner Vica stays in the Sky Tower as his communications officer, they only have two weeks left before their mission ends so they can return to a space station and join the others. However, Jack is not enthusiastic about leaving Earth and expresses his desire to spend the rest of his life at his cabin by the lake with relics from the past like books and vinyl records, until one day he meets a mysterious woman who claims to know him and that triggers a series of shocking revelations about his existence. Even though this is Joseph Kosinski's second film, he and his crew did a fantastic job with the visual effects and using the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland for the desolate cities, and the soundtrack blends very well from the first till the last frame. Tom Cruise still proves that he's at the top of his game at the age of fifty where he does his own stunts and continues to give an astounding performance which he always does. For fans of the science fiction genre, Oblivion is the perfect movie and it deserves multiple accolades for its exceptional plot, acting and cinematography.
