Fantastic visuals, a great soundtrack and yet another awesome performance from Tom Cruise sadly aren't enough to elevate Oblivion's disappointing storyline.
2013 seems to be a pioneer year for the revival of original sci-fi. Sure, we have seen instant sci-fi classics in recent years such as District 9, Inception and Looper, but in those respective years we didn’t see many attempts at creating unique science fiction films. This year is different though, for there are at least three or four original science fiction films coming out in 2013 that I can think of on the top of my head. The one I was most excited to see is Oblivion, the next project from Joseph Kosinski – the director of Tron: Legacy. Having enjoyed that film, I was eager to see how his great visual sense could be applied to something new and exciting. In the end, is Oblivion any sign of a sci-fi revolution?
