Last night we were invited to see the premiere of Oblivion at the IMAX in SM Mall of Asia starring one of the bankable actors in Hollywood, Tom Cruise.
Oblivion is the story of former NASA Commander Jack Harper who along with his partner Victoria Olsen, maintains the security of what has been left of Earth after an alien invasion attacked the planet, some 60 years ago. Jack and Victoria were tasked to check and repair drones sent from their home base in Saturn headed by Station Commander, Sally. These drones were sent down on earth to hunt down alien-life form they called the Scavengers or Scavs. Everything’s changed when Harper discovered the truth of their existence on Earth.
Oblivion has an interesting story-line with element of suspense and surprise. this is one great movie that will have you engage in an interesting discussion with your friends after watching the film.
Though there are scenes or visuals that may pertain to other sci-fi films like Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, The Island, Total Recall, etc., Oblivion has managed to stand on its own with its mind blowing and mind-boggling environment.
Starring as Victoria is English actress Andrea Riseborough. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko as Julia Rusakova and seasoned actor Morgan Freeman.
Oblivion also has a nice movie soundtrack – a dramatic-suspense deep space themed that will make you feel like you’re traveling in space.
Oblivion is a Universal Pictures presentation. It is distributed by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corporation. Oblivion will be shown on April 10 in cinemas nationwide.
