Oblivion Review

  I had a chance to finally see Oblivion. Actually it was John's post that gave me the push to see it now that it's on Blu-Ray. It was quite a convincing post, considering how he looks at it.

  Here is a brief synopsis of Oblivion from One of the few remaining drone repairmen assigned to Earth, its surface devastated after decades of war with the alien Scavs, discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that bring into question everything he believed about the war, and may even put the fate of mankind in his hands.

  Oblivion is a Sci-fi/Action flick which takes you for a mental ride. The movie pulls you along, and hits you with something new as you get deeper into the rabbit hole. Honestly I believe the reason why I enjoyed Oblivion as much as I did was because it made you think. I would describe it as this years version of 2001 A Space Odyssey. At leas at the moment that's the closest film I could compare it to, but that still isn't a good comparison.

  Overall I give Oblivion a 4 out of 5. I enjoyed the ride every moment of the movie, but I still felt like some things were spoon fed to me that didn't really need to be. It's a good flick and worth at least one view.
