Oblivion (2013)


Jack and Victoria live on a post-apocalyptic earth which had been devastated by alien invaders.  Everyday Jack does his job as a patrolman and mechanic. When a mysterious ship lands on earth, Jack learns secrets that he was never supposed to learn.  Tom Cruise does a good job in his role, although his performances rarely vary from role to role.  Speaking of playing the same role, Morgan Freeman is a great actor, but I honestly get tired of seeing him in pretty much every other film playing almost the same type of character.  There had to be someone less cliche and more suited for this role than him.  However, for a big budget Hollywood sci-fi film, Oblivion is a respectable crossover of the 'alien invasion' and 'post-apocalyptic' genres.

With more than enough mystery, action, and suspense to be interesting, Oblivion gets 3.5 out of 5 Poblanos!
