Oblivion (2013)

Director: Joseph Kosinski 
Genre: Sci-Fi 
Cast: Tom Cruise, Morgan Freman, Olga Kurylenko

Oblivion (2013)In pre-narration, Humans are attacked by Aliens, moon is destroyed; bringing about chaos to planet’s physiology. Nuclear warfare that follows helps Humans defeat the Aliens, but wrecks further havoc on planet and Earth is now mostly inhabitable; infested with outlasting Aliens known as ‘Scavs’. 

Human survivors move to a space abode The ‘Tet’, and continue using Earth’s remaining natural resources to support themselves. Tom Cruise, along with a partner, guards essential fuel and maintains energy/power producing units.

Visually enticing, mildly paced (goes well with the dystopian setting) film lead stoutly, as always, by bankable Tom Cruise. A simple plot—somewhat a mishmash of elements from many previous science fiction films—that unfolds to an okayish, non-complex revelation. Unlike most futuristic sci-fi films the dystopia is deliberately beautiful.

Not a sci-fi masterpiece or ground-breaking stuff but can be enjoyed once...moderately.

Trailers for ‘The Host’ and Will Smith & Son starring ‘After Earth’ seemed decent.
