Poster for the movie "Oblivion"


A sci-fi movie on the surface, yet underneath a human story of how love conquers all. This story is told well and its exposition throughout the movie is well done. There are some expansive uses of CG for the panoramic scenes, though this is more to paint the environment more completely. The movie can feel slow at times, but the overall structure unfolds like a many-petaled lotus and all the loose ends are tied up with a positive outcome. A warming film in a bleak landscape.
