Oblivion - 2013

A bit of The Matrix thrown into a cheesy heroic story about freedom. Good for a chill night for easy viewing, don’t expect anything special.

The twist in this movie is not really a twist, because by this point we’re used to it, like turning around full 360. Bla bla aliens enslave humans, bla bla brain washing humans, bla bla somehow humans' brains can’t be brainwashed completely, bla bla true love will unlock everything, etc etc.

Left unexplained: why do such advanced aliens need humans to fix their own machines? Why keep any humans alive? What’s the point?

Cool tech, cool toys, nice action, awesome drone noises. Tom Cruise with his Top Gun sunglasses is still flying like a bat from hell.
