Oblivion mixes elements and plots from all the greatest sci fi films. Some nice set pieces, good use of scenery, music and an overall well crafted production makes for a decent film. Parts of the film were excellent, but there were dull and predictable parts as well.
A great modern science fiction drama
Moon does not contain action, or cool flashy CGI effects, it's just a story that takes place in the future, where technology is advanced and taken for granted, and it explores some interesting themes that would not be possible in the present. Sam Rockwell put an excellent performance. The soundtrack is amazing as well.
We need more movies like this!
Better than expected
I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging and well written the storyline was. I was not rolling on the floor laughing, but I was interested in what was going on. This movie was so much better than the second. I can't think of a single complaint. I hope they don't make another one because this would be a beautiful end to the franchise.
Star Trek re-imagined
Even though I never really was a big Star Trek fan, I really enjoyed watching this movie. You need no previous knowlage of Star Trek to enjoy this movie. JJ Abrams does the near impossible, making everyone love Star Trek. Genius rebooting to the 21st century, there is no shame in taking the good bits of Star Wars to make it exciting, plus the humor nails it.
I'll definitely watch again
This is a fantastic ending to The Dark Knight Trilogy. Just a great great film. I found about halfway through that what Nolan had made was not a trilogy of 3 separate stories, but more one, epic, cohesive tale, not about Batman but about a universe Batman merely inhabits. The movie ties in with the first two in ways I would never have thought, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat and constantly guessing, and the emotions and acting throughout the movie are perfect!
