Jack and Victoria’s memories get erased and all they know is that the planet was invaded and destroyed. Now mankind lives in a spaceship and drones are patrolling the planet destroying the aliens.

Many of the visuals are stunning. The movie is a visual marvel with the Earth as a wasteland compared to Jack and Victoria’s very sleek and modern living quarters. The ravaged Earth is a stark contrast to the stainless steel and white living quarters.Oblivion 5

The movie is not only visually appealing but it also has a great story and most of the characters are well developed although the movie started very slow but the pacing got faster towards the middle.

It stars Tom Cruise as Jack, Morgan Freeman as Beech, Olga Kurylenko as Julia, Melissa Leo as Sally the computer and Andrea Riseborough as Victoria. Directed by Joseph Kosinski.

  1. Sixty years after a war with aliens made the Earth uninhabitable, drone repairman Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) and his communications officer Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) are the only two people left on the planet. Harper fixes drones that protect massive machines that convert sea water to energy, the sole source of power for the rest of humanity that has taken refuge on one of Saturn’s moons. During the day, the curious Harper makes his rounds and collects mementos of 21st century civilization while keeping his eyes open for Scavs – remnants of the alien force that decimated the world – and by night, he hooks up with Victoria in the glass-bottom pool of their luxurious Sky Tower situated in the clouds.

    In the year 2077, Tech 49 Jack Harper ( Tom Cruise ) is one of the last drone repairmen stationed on Earth . The planet was nearly destroyed sixty years earlier, during a war with a race of alien invaders known as Scavengers (“Scavs”). The Scavs destroyed the moon , causing massive earthquakes and tsunamis , and then launched their invasion. They were only defeated by the use of nuclear weapons , which left most of the planet irradiated and unlivable. The few surviving humans migrated to a colony on Titan , which is powered using energy harvested on Earth by giant ocean-borne power stations that generate fusion power from seawater. From Tower 49, a base standing above the remains of the northeastern United States , Jack and his partner and lover Victoria “Vic” Olsen ( Andrea Riseborough ) work as a team to maintain the autonomous drones that defend the power stations from the few remaining Scav bandits. They receive their orders from Sally ( Melissa Leo ), their mission commander, who is stationed on the “Tet,” a massive tetrahedral space station that orbits the Earth. Jack flies recon and repair missions to the surface, while Vic supervises from Tower 49. The two expect to leave Earth and join the other survivors on Titan in two weeks. Although Jack and Vic had their memories wiped five years prior for security purposes, Jack has recurring dreams about meeting a mysterious woman at the Empire State Building in a time before the war, which occurred before he was born. Additionally, Jack keeps a secret retreat in a forested area on the surface he sometimes visits.

    Jack is surprised to understand the Scavs are really an individual resistance brought by Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman), who discloses that Jack and Victoria were astronauts sent with an exploratory pursuit to Titan in 2017, alongside several researchers, including Jack’s wife, Julia. On the way, they found the Tet, an old extraterrestrial Artificial Intelligence. Their spaceship is drawn towards it and Jack severs the command module in the module that contains the cryo-coffee pods to safeguard Julia and also the relaxation from the crew. Jack and Victoria are taken through the Tet when their section makes its way into it as the relaxation from the ship instantly returns to some safe orbit around earth. The Tet produces an military of clones of Jack, which previously attack the planet, lowering the people to simply Beech’s group, after which brainwashed the clones to keep the drones which were getting rid of the final remains of mankind as the Tet drained Earth’s assets.

  6. The movie is set in 2077, 60 years after our moon was blown up by aliens called Scavs, destroying large portions of the earth. We fought back. In a variation of an old theme, we won the war, but lost the planet. Large areas are wasteland and the rest is radioactive. Jack (Tom Cruise) and Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) are the last two people left on the planet. Their job is to keep up the equipment that is extracting earth’s remaining resources for use by survivors fleeing to Titan, Saturn’s moon. In two weeks, Jack and Victoria will join them for the journey.

  7. Jack Harper is Tech 49 (Tom Cruise), one of the few remaining humans left on earth after a prolonged war with an invading alien species. After the aliens, called scavengers (or scavs) destroyed our moon, we were desperate. The humans won the war by nuking ourselves, leaving Earth an uninhabitable wasteland. All surviving humans have closed up shop and made way for Titus, a moon of Jupiter. Jack represents half of a team left behind to ensure the successful transfer of the planet’s remaining resources to a large orbiting ship, called the Tet. The other half of team 49 is Victoria (Andrea Riseborough). She follows the rules and never asks questions, yet Jack yearns to see more of his home planet before he departs. His inquisitiveness is frowned upon by Sally, known as Mission (Melissa Leo), but he continues to push his boundaries. When a space ship with cryogenically frozen astronauts crashes in his zone, he is surprised to discover that one of them is a woman he’s dreamt about for years, Julia (Olga Kurylenko). More questions arise, and in his search for answers, he eventually stumbles onto a little more of the truth than he expects. The scavs he’s been fending off are actually humans. It gets far more complicated from here, so I won’t bother trying to explain any more.

  17. Erica says:

    Visually stunning movie with a very well written script. Tom Cruise is amazing. This is by far the best movie of the year. All the money they spent on the production design is worth it and paid of. The shots are really great.

  23. Nancy W. says:

    Oblivion worked very well and it is an audio and visuals treat. It started with a slow pacing but it became faster towards the middle of the film. Another winner from Tom Cruise.
