Thrilling and compelling and visually arresting on a micro scale, but when you zoom out - when you take a minute to think about it - it's all too contrived. The story is perfectly ridiculous - clones, ocean-sucking fusion reactors, a godlike machine invader, the lengths to which the insidious Tet goes to get the clones to do their bidding and hide the reality of the situation... All thoroughly unnecessary for a good story.

Say what you will of Tom Cruise and his personal life choices, but the man seems to be one of the few in Hollywood still willing to stick their neck out in non-sequel Sci-Fi and pull it off, and for that I give him props! Oblivion certainly isn't original, but executes itself very entertainingly even if a couple of plot holes are pretty big. ^^ Then again, most movies tend to have those, and this one still remains a good watch if you're looking to spend the evening watching a post-invasion movie. =) Got to give a shout out to Cruise's next Sci-Fi foray, Edge of Tomorrow, which was even better than this!

ESTE TIPO DE PELICULA ES DE MI GUSTO ESTA DE MAS QUE IDEA TAN ORIGINAL DE LA CABEZA DEL SER HUMANO LOS PAISAJES DE ESTE MUNDO MESCLADO CON SERES DE OTRO MUNDO QUE PODRIAN ESTAR SIN DUDA ALGUNA ENTRE NOSOTROS EN ESTA TIERRA TAN GRANDE DENTRO DE MARES DE PROFUNDIDADES INESPLICABLES SOLO PARA CIENTIFICOS MOSTRANDO EN CASOS QUE AHI PODRIAN ESTAR ESOS SERES CON SUS MAQUINAS.
