Official synopsis:

On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

I saw this movie last night. In my humble opinion, this sci-fi movie is average. The impressive visual effects are to be applauded, but the overall story is lacking. Although there are some nice action scenes, the rest of the movie is slow-paced (especially the first half of the movie). I also believe some viewers may need to see the movie a second time to fully understand the overall plot. My rating: 5.5 on 10.

Oblivion(2013)

Earth is a memory worth fighting for

Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a drone repairman assigned to Earth. Some sixty years prior, Earth was attacked. Humans won the war, but the planet was devastated. Everybody was evacuated. Jack discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that challenge his beliefs about the war and may put the fate of mankind in his own hands.

After watching the trailer, it sure looks like an amazing movie!

This science fiction movie will hit the big screen sometime in April 2013.
