    Salon.com - by Andrew O'Hehir
    Oblivion is a technical triumph rather than a philosophical breakthrough, demonstrating how beautifully digital effects can be blended with real people and real sets, demonstrating that neither Tom Cruise nor the 1970s will ever die, and announcing the unexpected arrival of a major science-fiction director. ...read more

    San Francisco Chronicle - by Mick LaSalle
    After a slow start, this is the rare film that gets better as it goes along. The story, about two scientists working in a post-apocalyptic New York, deepens and builds an intense rooting interest. The action sequences are too much out of a video game, but this is intelligent science fiction -- and it benefits enormously from Tom Cruise in the lead role. ...

    The A.V. Club - by Aaron Franco
    Oblivion is a terrific-looking movie, alternating spare, sterile environments with homey organic ones, and making both look tremendously pretty. Kosinski also handles his action well, with cut-and-dried clarity and edge-of-seat energy. ...read more

    The Hollywood Reporter - by Todd McCarthy
    Oblivion is an absolutely gorgeous film dramatically caught between its aspirations for poetic romanticism and the demands of heavy sci-fi action. After a captivating beginning brimming with mystery and evident ambition, the air gradually seeps out of the balloon that keeps this thinly populated tale aloft, leaving the ultimate impression of a nice try that falls somewhat short of the mark. ...read more

    Portland Oregonian - by M. E. Russell

    The Playlist - by Oliver Lyttelton
    It is overlong, and familiar, and never quite hits top gear -- it's never especially bad, but neither is it especially excellent, beyond the visual wow factor. But there's still a lot to admire in the film, not least that it's engaging from the first moment to the last. ...read more

    Total Film - by Keith Harley

    Chicago Sun-Times - by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
    Like director Joseph Kosinski's debut, "TRON: Legacy," Oblivion is a special effects extravaganza with a lot of blatant symbolism and very little meaning. It starts slow, turns dull, and then becomes tedious — which makes it a marginal improvement over the earlier film. ...read more

    New York Post - by Kyle Smith
    Without an exceptionally skilled director of actors (such as Cameron Crowe), Cruise can’t dial up much emotion, so the two love interests for his character are two more than he can convincingly handle. He may be at home in the cockpit of a killing machine, but when it comes to displaying his humanity, he’s no Wall-E. ...read more

    For its first hour or so, Oblivion is a visually mesmerizing, intriguing picture that doesn’t feel like the same-old: It engages your eyes and piques your curiosity.

    Oblivion goes on for a long time, moving slowly and self-consciously, and it looks like a very expensive movie project that has been written and rewritten many times over.

User Comments & Reviews


  1. ‘Oblivion’. It works an absolute treat audio and visuals-wise, but the pacing isn’t great, and as much as I admire the writing for trying to be more than popcorn sci-fi, it fell a little short.

    Morgan Freeman adds nothing to this film really. Same with the Kingslayer.




  2. Ross Collins

    Joseph Kosinski’s (of TRON: Legacy fame) homage to 70s sci-fi could just as well have been a 90s The Outer Limits episode in big-budget movie form. A very beautifully filmed piece of sci-fi even though the plot is obvious and unoriginal. This is like Top Gun, a simple movie where you can just switch off your brain and enjoy the ride. In fact, it really does pay to suspend your disbelief and immerse yourself in this atmospheric fantasy.
