Film: Oblivion

Oblivion is an okay film and is easily worth the £3 ticket price - yes, our local cinema is one of the cheapest in the UK! The problem is that it is trying to do too many things at once and so ends up appearing as a mash-up of existing sci-fi films. It also suffers from a few plot holes which end up being quite annoying in hindsight (why did the alien intelligence need Jack in the first place?). What's more, knowing the fact of life that Morgan Freeman never plays a bad guy is a bit of a twist spoiler, albeit a minor one Complaints aside, the CGI isn't particularly troublesome and if you can forgive the elements I've menioned, then the movie is good fun and isn't too long.
