Ip_man: 'Oblivion' last 20 minutes were superb - the problem is that the build up towards this ending was boring as fuck.almost nothing happens in the movie till it's last act,true,the visuals(much like Tron Legacy)are breathtaking but the story is just weak and leaving you with the feeling of 'why should i care ? ' another problem is the casting - Tom Cruise is good for some specific roles,this was not one of them.The female support actresses were both a miscast and Morgan freeman has maybe 10 min screen time which doesn't help much.
Finally,the best thing about this movie is the soundtrack - powerful and emotional,will probably be a strong contender for best soundtrack of the year.

Tanman32123: I can agree with the above, the ending is the best part by far. The middle is boring and hard to follow. It has some great twist dont get me wrong, but it get confusing an hard to follow.
The CGI and effect and such get a 10/10 for sure, all that stuff was VERY well done. But story and the way it's told and so forth.. That gets a 5/10. So let's just say its a 7/10.
See for yourself, And be prepared for Twist after twist. I can see a lot of people calling this dumb because they're too stupid to understand the twists.

GreenLensman: This movie does lack originality, it borrows from some very core sci-fi films, but the main thing I hated was the ending.
You would think that a giant fucking A.I. core operating directly next to a field of clones would have some form of offensive capabilities other than the flying robot things...I mean, Jack presents himself and the black guy, and "sally" is just like OH HI, whatcha up to? thwarting my plans? oh you're not thwarting my plans? good, because that would be bad...
One fucking death beam would kill them both but no the super bad ass A.I. thing just sits there like a bitch and takes it up the ass. "sally" just waited for 5 minutes while jack armed a nuclear device.
Through the entire movie all we see is one little 'scav' outpost indicating they the only mother fuckers left on the planet or at least that area. Good job leaving your precious wife with a whole buncha dudes who will need to fuck her and your daughter to repopulate, good job saving the earth for like 10 people..
you could have found a way to take out the core and salvage the mother ship, utilize the cloning technology and repopulate the planet over night. I mean, jack, the fucker, had some bad ass weaponry why not take a few pop shots at sally's eye ball or some shit.
It would have been a lot scarier if they showed the true sally halfway through the movie instead of only 5 minutes at the end.
anyway, even my version has its faults, but this movie is just a copy of all the other good sci-fi movies

cress: I was hooked from the beginning. I thought Kosinski's TRON LEGACY was gorgeous looking, but boring. And his direction of intimate scenes between actors and flashback scenes was terrible. He corrects those shortcomings with OBLIVION, and delivers an engaging sophomore effort.
The story seems like bits of other sc-fi films pasted together (PLANET OF THE APES, THE MATRIX, 2001), but it all blends well enough to be its own unique story. I don't understand where some have said it was confusing or nothing happened(boring). I was never confused or bored. It starts out as a mystery. And if explosions are all that gets you to find a film interesting, then you are a fucking idiot.
The only problems I had were the minimal use of the Scavs, pointless Morgan Freeman cameo, and minimal explanation of the alien holocaust. Some of those scenes would've been better shown than explained, as evidenced by the brilliant flashback sequence in the last 20 minutes of the film.
Very good sci-fi film, even if it is not the most original or grandiose experience.
