Oblivion Movie Review

A future Earth, ravaged by nuclear war with aliens. The human race has escaped and moved to Titan, one of Jupiter's moons. A few people have stayed behind in the Tetrahedron to help repair crews on the ground guard the water reclamation machines from alien scabs left behind on the planet. Or are they? Hmmmmm! This is a great film, with slowly revealing mysteries leading up to the ultimate twist. It unfortunately drops a few obvious clues too early on, and I figured out what was going on about 30 minutes in. However it still kept me watching and the action/mystery sections are well mixed keeping the film interesting. A great turn from Mr. Cruise.

Oblivion is good onetime movie, but was really expecting more from it. I would say watch it only for its visual effects and Tom Cruise. Story is very typical, infact felt it had some Indian touch in it. Like Indian version of Rocky or Behind enemy lines :P atleast concept was same. Although it would look great in theater, i felt spending Rs 320 at Fame for it wasnt really worth. Watch it on DVD when it comes, or rent it from video parlor. Dont want to buy DVD too for it.
