OBLIVION (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

—no shabbiness here, begs for a sequel—completes its circle with unusual realism. Some of the special effects may not be as cinematic or explosive as one would expect in a film of this genre, but it all works due to the two actors, Tom Cruise and Andrea Riseborough, and the support cast of Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman. Great work for Director Joseph Kosinski for putting a unique story on the big screen. This is a blockbuster film that takes total mental involvement.
