The first act of Oblivion is very reminiscent of the first act of Disney's Wall-E and it does a fine job of telling the same abandoned earth story sans the Pixar charm.
As the plot starts to unravel it leaves you with gaping potholes that just don't make sense.
The drones are being attacked by what Jack believes are aliens, but if you've seen one trailer for this movie you know that the aliens are really humans lead by Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise is working for the aliens as their maytag repairman.
Now without spilling the beans on a couple of little plot twists that come up I just have one question for the writers of this flick. If the Aliens built the giant starship capable of destroying the moon and rendering humanity to the brink of extinction, the aliens also built the ships and bases that Jack was working out of as well as the drones, why did they need to go to all the trouble of capturing a human, lying to him to get him to repair their alien tech?
Wouldn't it have been easier and less risky to the operation to just do the job themselves?
Cause you know that if you told Jack that Humanity is dead and he finds a human on Earth, the whole plan would just go to shit.
I'm just saying, it's fucking illogical captain, now bring me Iron-Man 3!!!
