Not the best/original movie but it's a good looking scifi
I really enjoyed it.Visuals were stunning, futuristic designs were really cool, the drones were f***ing awesome and the twist was unexpected. Well, for me..
The story kinda lingers at the end but basically t'was awesome.
I liked it. :)But i thought it seemed a lil bit with Matrix...
Thought-provoking sci-fi. I try not to compare movies, even if there are similarities. Unless it's a total rip-off, I judge them as individual pieces of work.
And this one shines. I left the theater not knowing what to think, and that's a feeling I rarely get, but always ends well for the movie.
Awesome PicturesGood but confusing Story
Star Wars + Portal + Dead Space + Total Recall
well, when comparing to the most of is genre, i would say its the best in years =)
Tom Cruise plays the last man on Earth, a high-tech janitor of sorts who's left to mind the planet's robotic chaperones while the rest of the species lives it up on one of Saturn's moons.
It's slow, predictable and riddled with holes, but the production's array of slick, attractive future tech and constant visual revelations make for excellent diversions. Cruise's sleekly designed equipment is a real science fiction goldmine, visionary in the same sense as Minority Report's giant touch-screen UIs, and the first hour is an outstanding lesson in world-building. The plot eventually falls into too many Cruise / mainstream Hollywood pitfalls, though, and borrows too liberally from other films. Duncan Jones's excellent Moon, in particular, is robbed of all but its subtlety, performances and locale. Still, such faults are hardly surprising by this point and if you were anticipating something more... well, maybe an adjustment in expectations is in order. Perfectly acceptable as a conceptual exercise, but make sure you swallow that grain of salt before viewing.
Plot wasn't sophisticated, probably described as feel good, but frankly, it was perfect. I left a 2 hour film and wasn't bored for a second.
I give this a 7/10 for the awesome idea... movie was pretty bleh, but the premise was something that kept things very interesting.
10/10 for the DTS-HD Audio, sounds great,
movie is ok
MUSIC! Incredible. The entire implementation excellent. But the scenario is a little wobbly foundations, the tip can save it, but it had to be a typical Hollywood ending.
Unexpected, but too little about the other humans and too much about Jack. It could have been a lot cooler with civilization and the struggle of humanity after the apocalypse.
One of the best Sci fi flicks I have seen.
Some unanswered questions! When I saw Morgan Freeman, the movie was spoiled, because how can Morgan Freeman be a villain?
I avoided this movie for quite some time, mainly because I’m not a big fan of Tom Cruise (I resent his support for Scientology), but the movie is worthwhile. There are some loose ends in the story, but it is overall convincing. The turn-around in the story line is credible (and good!). Andrea Riseborough’s acting is so good that it gives you a foreboding feeling from the beginning, even if her text is perfectly neutral. I liked that a lot! And there are more surprises in the story. The ending is not totally convincing, but can be forgiven. Landscape views and soundtrack are very impressive. It’s definitely a big-screen movie!
Great movie from what I can remember
Stunning visual effects, bad movie
Cine PAco 1. Picture and sound 5/5. I liked it more than the other time, futuristic designs were really cool
It was Awesome, the scenes, music, story idea, visual effects, all and all.... made me WOW!!
This was an interesting and good movie, but it could have been a masterpiece.
The thing that kept it from becoming that was mainly the story line and build up.The biggest plot twist (and imho the biggest climax of the movie) happens way too early, and it makes the endgame feel like an outro rather than the moment you have been waiting for the whole movie.From the moment the big plot twist is revealed, the movie gets very predictable.
The acting, setting, visuals, potential, music are all pretty much top notch, but in the end it was the writing that will probably put this movie in 'Oblivion' itself.
Loved the soundtrack by M83. The visuals were beautiful. The plot has been done before (Moon). I don't feel like I wasted my time but other than visuals and the music? There's nothing new here.
It's kind of curious that most seem to miss out on the finest aspect of the movie; I think, therefor I am. This is one of the best depictions of humanity I have seen in a long while, and perfectly presents the life-death cycle. At least if you are able to think some for yourself..
I liked very much, story and effects.
Solid scifi. Reminded me of Moon. Can't wait for blue ray to blow my neighbours away
After reading reviews and shouts here, I thought that I would be way disappointed. It didn't turn out like that.
As everyone stated, the plot is very predictable, so that is the biggest con of the movie. And I should state that one should not rely on a detailed background story. However, despite some people stating that the story was not cleared in the end, I found it sufficient.
In many Sci-Fi movies, you get to know from where the treat comes from, how they are evolved -as in aliens-. The movie found it sufficient to just let people know about the mission of some far civilization, who came to Earth. And in the end, rather than a movie which tells "there was a distant advanced civilization who came to attack us", a movie which tells "you all know that if it is an alien movie, there is a distant advanced civilization, but we just told why they came!" is better.
So in the end, to me it definitely gives its point to the audience. In my opinion, it overall rates 8, but I wanted to spare it one more for a point which the movie surprised me -I said, the plot was predictable- apart from the whole of it.
Watch it, don't expect a milestone and enjoy.
Oblivion (Around 2012?)
This caught my eye mostly because of Morgan Freeman in it. In a post-apocalyptic world after a war with alien invaders, the Earth's moon has been destroyed in the process, and the Earth itself contaminated. Civiliation fled to Saturn's moon Titan, and resources are taken from Earth to uphold this last shelter of humanity.Jack and his partner are placed on a mission on a tech-tower on Earth, having to constantly repair and protect super-armed drones which guards these resource sites while down there, the invaders named Scavengers (Scavs) are still around and pose a threat to humanity's last shelter.They are not supposed to have memories prior to their mission, but Jack is haunted by dreams.
Both the initial situation of this as well as Morgan Freeman in this led me instantly believe there must be a major plot twist going on.
Rating: 9/10, watch this shit.
How come nobody pointed out that it's basically The Matrix trilogy crammed into one film? The many iterations of "The One", the underground resistance, the "Sentinels", the Machines exploiting humans and the planet for energy, the final encounter of The One with the central AI and his subsequent sacrifice. It's almost beat for beat. And Kosinski wrote the graphic novel in 2005, while The Matrix: Revolutions came out in 2003.It's a pity the story was so unoriginal, because the VFX and the production design were outstanding.
I wish I could give it a strong 0
Un poquitín de “WALL-E”, otro tanto de “Moon”. Meh, no está mal.Los drones tienen muy buen diseño, creo que es la mayor aportación de la película.
One of the few movies I couldn't finish.
This is basically 'Moon' with a Tom Cruise budget, isn't it?
Good story and affects overall but the ending doesn't work for me. Maybe if he were numbered 53? #ShiftvW8
All I have to say about this film is... what!?
Beautiful design, good story, great feel
Отличный фильм для просмотра вечерком
I loved the movie overall, but the soundtrack is totally the best part.
Nice combination of Star Trek's Borg sphere, and Star Wars' Clones ;) But apocalyptic Earth could look more apocalyptic after only 60 years ;>
Well done visually! Storyline was a bit predictable, but interesting enough and worth a watch. A bit troubled by the implications of the end re: relationships, and wondering about the rest of the poor bastards.
Excellent CGI + Sound design. Predictable plot and characters, not emotionally engaging enough to make anything more than 90 minutes even appear entertaining.
A solid movie.The first 30 minutes were ok, but then ... duh!But, yea, definitely worth watching.
Went in expecting nothing. I actually avoided the trailer and most of the hype because 1) Tom Cruise usually isn't that great and 2) it has nothing to do with the game of the same name. So I completely dismissed it. I'm glad I missed the spoilers as they seem to have spoiled a lot of reviewers. Lots of eye candy in the visuals, and a pretty good story. I suppose it did remind me of other films, but mostly I enjoyed it. Solid movie.
Not that bad ;)Unfortunately I spoiled myself by accident, so I robbed myself of a joy ride.Anyways, it's a good one & the soundtrack is even better!Enjoy.
Enjoyable sci-fi, but one you just switch off and enjoy. I though it was a "hollywooded" up version of Moon. And the character I liked the most was probably the drones, I would love to have one as a pet.
Impressive visuals and style, just nothing groundbreaking on the story front.
Basically an ego platform for Mr T Cruise
Kind of a silly movie, but kept my interest I guess.
Awesome!!!!! Best Tom Cruise film in a long time and epic Sci-Fi. Joe Kosinski is a true world builder!
Visuals were the great but that's about it for me. Fell asleep towards the end.
at first I considered not watching this because i really don´t like Tom Cruise. Would have been a mistake to skip it, though.
Personally I think the plot was solid. Not full of surprises but sufficent. I didn´t felt that something was missing. I concur with most reviews that the visuals and score are great (BluRay FullHD and DTS master).
One of the better movies I´ve seen lately.
Would have given it 8/10 but the last 30 minutes weren't that good anymore, so 7/10
Super predictable plot, nothing new but certainly enjoyable! Needs to be watched in 1080p with the biggest sound system you have - the visuals are stunning and the sound design is even better... worth watching just for that!
Really slow at the start
Not bad! I love the scifi visuals.
The whole movie felt like a rip off of the moon (http://trakt.tv/movie/moon-2009) idea to me. While moon only needs a single actor to pull of a great plot, this picture needs the typical hollywood size list of actors. the cgi, sfx and music are great but the plot is very predictable and has nothing new or special.
so much that i haven t ever seen in other movies...
The whole plot was entirely predictable, but the all-star cast and abstract premise made for an interesting watch.
A decent scifi with mediocre story. Loved it!
Excellent with a good twist at the end
Visually beautiful. Nit bad story.
Great sifi movie not loads of action....very cool story though.
Good movie. Really liked the ending.
Great movie to think about
This movie is beautiful but I didn't appreciate the end of it.
Great movie ;)
Good but not great.
The end could be better.
It is Not bad but it is Not epic.
Great act and effect!!good job
Wasn't bad! Tom Cruise surprises me time and time again. I thought the trailer looked dumb but this movie was a pleasant surprise!
Love thatcher the film is filmed in Iceland
movie lost its touch after 1/2 of the movie, but +1 for the visuals
So this feels like a remake of Moon (2009), with great special effects, but lacking some of the depth and questions of humanity and solitude. Great entertainment!
I give it a 7 just for the special effects.Story could be so much more, but stays shallow.
A cool movie with a twist. Recommended :)
omg... whats wrong with you people. This movie is awesome, not one bad this in my opinion.. If you love science fiction, you must watch this and don't read the summary and don't watch the trailer! Enjoy.
Let's just say this movie is just TOO ambitious for its own good...
Sure its good, but could've been better if it didn't take so long to get to the twist.
an astonishing one in 2013
Just awful. Moon minus any semblance of acting ability or subtlety. Not that most people seem to care since it's shiny and has explosions.
Boring as hell.
I heard bad things about this movie, so I guess I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly pleased with the movie though. I paid $3.50 at the dollar theatre, and I would say it was worth it.
It was sci-fi, you can't ask too much from a movie like this. Wiz, bang, pop and it's over. Leaving me feel good. The only gripe I had, is the same gripe I have with every alien movie--done wrong--. Which is when we don't meet the antagonist (the alien) until the very end of the movie. Then there's this big final reveal. It's always a let down and hokey. There's soooo many movies that do this and there always considered "bad". Well that's the reason. If you're going to have aliens put em in 1/2 way through the movie. Otherwise it's too much of a build up. No artist will ever come up with a character design so awesome to make the reveal worth it. Other than that, it was cool.
Tom Cruise is brilliant again in a another great Sci-Fi story but the story could have been fleshed out more. Amazing special effects.
Good sci-fi, just a little to obvious. Come on, nothing says clones like DNA stairs, am I right?
Okayish slow SciFi, bad dialoges
Loved the visuals/VFX; they created a beautiful world. I like my sci-fi, but plot was full of holes and basically an amalgamation of many different films which did it all better.
Loved the Score by M83
Thought the opening 20 minutes were great thought, but overall its was disappointing for me; was hoping it would be great :(
I watched it and it's hard to rate this movie. The visual effects are great, but i am a scifi nerd. So what do you expect :)
The story was kind of intersserting, but sometimes there were peaks of dumbness and stupid dialogues. I didn't asked me myself about plotholes, but now after the ending, there were some of them.
But you know what? I was in the movie and i liked it.
Nice to look at but feels like I have seen it before.
This was not satisfying. Could have been in 3D as Prometheus looked great, also i felt story wasnt great nor the flow of the movie, but visually good, just could have been much better for a Tom Cruise sci fi movie.
