What Is It About?

Here is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:


In the year 2077, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) works as a security repairman on an Earth left empty and devastated after a war with aliens.

Jack has two weeks left before his mission ends, and he joins his fellow survivors on a faraway colony.

However, Jack’s concept of reality comes crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft.

The woman’s arrival triggers a chain of events that culminates in Jack’s nearly single-handed battle to save mankind.

My Thoughts

I saw this movie at the C movie theater several years ago in the city of LC.

I liked the visuals and the Sky Tower, which was beautiful, and I wish that I could visit and live in it in the real world.

I liked Andrea Riseborough’s performance as the character Victoria “Vika” Olsen, who I wish would have been in the movie more, and the end credits song Oblivion by M83 featuring Susanne Sundfør.

That song went almost perfectly with the end of the movie, and I actually stayed in my seat to listen to it and watch the end credits.

This song and the end credits either magnified the feelings that I felt toward the movie and / or it created new ones.

There were some things that I did not like about this movie, which I will not mention to avoid spoilers.

I still liked this movie better than some people did, but I have only seen it once, several years ago.
