Oblivion (2013)

8 May

Oblivion has some of the best visuals I have seen recently, and the music and sound design are amazing – especially in IMAX. Unfortunately, what starts out as an interesting story gets muddled up with attempted social commentary and a painfully slow and confusing third act. Tom Cruise, at 50 years old, is still a very accomplished actor, but there is no chemistry with any of his co-stars (something a character even admits halfway through the film). It’s worth seeing in IMAX just because the visuals really are impressive, but If you are looking for a Mission Impossible-type action movie, look elsewhere.

6/10 stars
