“60 years ago earth was attacked. We won the war but they destroyed half the planet. Everyone’s been evacuated. Nothing human remains.” Jack Harper
Written and directed by Joseph Kosinski, Oblivion is the up and coming sci-fi, action thriller starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenco.
Tom Cruise is Jack Harper, a repairman/soldier, armed with his tool box and a machine gun he scours the barren Earth landscape for drones in need of repair. Only 2 weeks away from completing their mission, Harper and his companion Victoria played by Andrea Riseborough can finally join the rest of the human race.
But Jack’s nostalgic curiosity seems to get the better of him and we fall into a dark hostile underworld where we are confronted by cigar smoking Morgan Freeman. However, Freeman is not the true threat; something much more sinister is at play here. As Harper delves deeper we catch a glimpse of what really happened to Earth’s survivors, which raises questions about Harper’s own past, and who he can really trust.
Some impressive visual effects and action sequences are on offer, along with action man Cruise doing what he does best, and a short voice over delivered by Freeman gives the trailer gravitas and depth.
