“Starts Slow And Stays There”
“Felt Like Something Was Missing!”
“If We Have Souls, They're Made Of The Love We Share. Undimmed By Time, Unbound By Death.”
“Not Without Its Faults And Borrowing Of Ideas, Oblivion Stands Well Enough On Its Own As A Decent Blockbuster.”
“Sci-fi Top Gun For Cruise In Oblivion”
“Excellent Visuals -- Different Take On Familiar Sci-Fi Themes”
“Oblivion Is No Question A Visual Marvel And Features Tom Cruise At His Best. But Sadly That Gets Clouded By Its Overwhelming And Confusing Plot While All The Same Running Too Long And It Fails To Capture Or Retain Your Attention After About The Hour Mark.”
“OBLIVION,NICE MOVIE,BUT NOT FOR THE ACTION PEOPLE.!”
“I Can't Do That, Jack”
“"And How Can Man Die Better Than Facing Fearful Odds, For The Ashes Of His Fathers, And The Temples Of His Gods"”
“Imagine Taking Pieces From All The Sci-fi Classics, Putting Them In A Blender, Wrapping It In A Shiny Box; Then Pouring It On Screen For Mass Consumption. Oblivion Is A Sci-fi Axiom Colada.”
“A So So Science Fiction, That Steals More Than It Originates.”
“... The Lengths OBLIVION Goes To Tell Every Other Film's Story Except Its Own Is Stunning. Stunningly Idiotic...”
Oblivion goes on for a long time, moving slowly and self-consciously, and it looks like a very expensive movie project that has been written and rewritten many times over.
Peter Bradshaw - Guardian [UK]
There is a small, not-so-convincing emotional element to Oblivion but this is a film to be enjoyed more for its mystery and intrigue.
Matthew Toomey - ABC Radio Brisbane
The pace is far less frenetic than other recent actioners, and the tone more thoughtful. With a lovely score and particularly nice performances from its central trio, the final cut of Oblivion suggests greatness was not entirely out of reach.
Simon Miraudo - Quickflix
Does its best to dazzle by its myriad of special effects but confuses itself. Visuals superb, though... and best part is the contrasting dynamic between Cruise and his two striking female co-stars
Louise Keller - Urban Cinefile
Writers who direct their own rather complex stories often are too familiar with the material to be able to really clarify it for the audience
Andrew L. Urban - Urban Cinefile
Oblivion may impress with its scale. But rather like Kosinski's depiction of Earth, it feels devoid of humanity - and that's a major design flaw.
James Mottram - The List
While it tries hard to resurrect the spirit of '60s and '70s sci-fi, what it actually feels more like is The Matrix without the benefit of a bullet time-like gimmick.
Dave Golder - SFX Magazine
It's a shame the lack of originality becomes a distraction forty minutes in and the spectacle isn't enough to stem the overriding sense of deja vu.
Adam Lowes - HeyUGuys
Stunning design, clever twists and turns, strong performances and one of the best soundtracks in recent memory marred by one of the most patronising unnecessary voice-over narrations of all time.
Marc Fennell - Triple j
Nao oferece uma narrativa coesa o suficiente para criar o impacto dramatico necessario, mas e ambicioso o bastante para nao descartar as boas ideias que tem.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
A sci-fi that's always a little more inclined to have the heart racing instead of the grey matter working. As an upgrade from the cold, emotionless Tron: Legacy, however, it's outstanding.
Ali Gray - TheShiznit.co.uk
Kosinski piles up money shot after money shot (digitally enhancing desolate Iceland locations to good effect), while harnessing a soaring score from M83 to power along the ride.
