【Movie|电影】Oblivion|遗落战境

Picture Sources
Since my brother and my second brother in law had went to Taiwan,
so I called up my friend to watch this movie with me!!! =]
(Was purposely wanted to watch it on the first showing date!!!)

Seriously, I'm not a Tom Cruise's fan,
so this is not the reason why I wanted to watch this movie,
instead just because the trailer is quite awesome.
(even though I understand that trailer is always showing the best scenes of the whole movie)

Two hours long movie,
but still can noticed that they cut out a lot from the movie,
(Useless Malaysia's cinema always love to cut off a lot of scenes)
which makes wasn't like it that much!!! =[

Honestly the story line is quite good which is talking about human won the fight but lose the earth!
(what a sad thing, argh?)

But since it was two hours long movie,
it got to bring in some love story,
(which I think why make this so long)
from those movie website was states this movie's genre as action, adventure and science,
but from what I can see is how they trying so hard to bring in the 60years love story!!! =[
***************************
哥哥和二姐夫都去台湾了,
又没有人和我一起去看电影了,
所以就找了个朋友和我一起看!!!  =]

在戏院一直看到它的预告片就觉得很吸引,
我不是湯姆·克魯斯的粉丝,
看这部电影只觉得是因为它好像很好看,
(其实是每一部电影的预告片都是最棒的)

说实在的两个小时多的电影真的让我看得很痛苦,
再加上马来西亚的制度还要减掉很多部分,
看得一点都不过瘾,
即使那部电影是好看的都被他们减得不是那么好看!
其实我觉得整部电影还好,没有很喜欢。

我只能以一句天马行空来形容它得故事,
或许人类打赢了但是输了地球,
这个题材很不错。

但是感觉上明明讲着地球得事就硬拉了爱情故事进去,
一部动作,科学,历险的题材,
像是很勉强的带进了六十年的爱情故事!!!  =[

Following an alien invasion 60 years earlier which nearly destroyed the Earth, former Marine commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is drone mechanic 49, one of the last few humans stationed on the planet. Jack lives in a tower standing thousands of feet above the Earth where he and his colleague Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) are part of an operation to clean up the remaining forces of the invasion and extract the planet's remaining resources. Jack and Victoria maintain contact with civilization via a video link with their commander, Sally (Melissa Leo), and are due to join the rest of humanity on Saturn's moon Titan in two weeks. Jack suffers from recurring dreams and flashbacks, featuring images of New York before the invasion and an unknown female. Assisting Jack in his cleanup work are weaponised 'drones', sophisticated airborne machines that scour the landscape for, and destroy, alien lifeforms. 

Nearing the end of his mission, Jack rescues a female stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a crashed spaceship. She is encased in a sleeping capsule, in a state of hibernation, but Jack immediately recognises her as the woman in his flashbacks. Shortly after, Jack and the stranger are captured by an insurgency led by Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman). Inside the insurgent stronghold, the insurgents claim there are no aliens on the planet, and demand that he reprogram a recently captured drone. Meanwhile, Victoria sends a drone to scout the area for Jack, but it is soon disarmed by members of the resistance. Beech allows Jack and the female stranger to venture into an area of the landscape ostensibly unapproachable due to high levels of radiation, advising Jack that it is in this place that he will find answers to his questions. 

Jack and the stranger climb the remains of the Empire State Building, and the stranger reveals herself to be his wife, Julia. Despite his initial shock at this revelation, it allows Jack to reconcile his flashbacks, knowing it to be the truth. It is revealed that the ship in which Julia crash landed was a NASA shuttle that had been orbiting the Earth for 60 years. When Jack and Julia return to the tower, the heartbroken Victoria reports to Sally that Jack is unfit for service. Sally activates a drone that is under maintenance in the tower to exterminate everyone, but only manages to kill Victoria before Julia disables it with a gunshot from Jack's aircraft. The duo travel into the supposedly lethal radiation zone, where Jack is stunned to come face to face with drone mechanic 52, a clone of himself. Jack and the clone engage in combat that ends with Jack choking the clone unconscious. 

Jack and Julia return to the resistance camp, where they help to repair the stolen drone. Beech reveals to Jack that the life form he encountered is only one of thousands of clones, including himself, resulting from cloning the real Jack Harper, who lived 60 years ago. These clones are used to repair drones and scout for 'alien' presence. His colleague Victoria is also revealed to be a clone. The resistance is revealed to be the planet's last remaining human outpost, exposing the truth that Jack and Victoria's superiors, i.e. Sally, are the 'aliens', using the clones to drain the Earth of its vital resources. The drones, it is revealed, are programmed to attack humans, not aliens. 

During the repair process, Beech reveals that the resistance has a nuclear device and intends on using it to destroy the alien stronghold; an enormous space station orbiting Earth. Three drones pick up the DNA trail of Jack and attack the base, resulting in a prolonged firefight before the drones are finally overpowered. The resistance suffers many casualties, including Beech who appears to be mortally wounded. To his frustration, the captured drone has been damaged and is once again unfit for service, however the nuclear device is still intact. With no other choice, Jack volunteers to fly the device to the station himself, delivering the 'hibernating' Julia as an explanation for his presence. 

Jack places her back into her sleeping capsule (the same one he had found her in when he first encountered her) and sets off to the space station, telling Sally that he is bringing the survivor to her. During the flight Jack listens to the flight recorder recovered from Julia's crashed shuttle and, in a series of flashbacks, it is revealed that his original self was on board the same spaceship as his wife. In 2017, with Victoria as his co-pilot, Jack navigates the ship to investigate a mysterious object orbiting Earth (revealed to be the alien space station), but on approaching, the ship is drawn towards the object. At that point, fearing the worst, Jack released the shuttle containing the sleeping capsules (one of which held Julia), as it would be able to break free from the object's gravitational pull. The shuttle is that which crash landed earlier in the film, and from which 'Jack' rescued Julia. 

Jack enters the space station and confronts 'Sally', who is revealed to be a monolithic, amorphous being. Sally is disappointed when Jack opens the sleeping capsule, revealing that he has not brought Julia as promised, but a wounded Malcolm Beech, who had previously expressed his desire to be there at the moment the nuclear device was triggered. (Julia, unbeknownst to her, has been delivered to Jack's forest retreat; a lakeside cabin where he has stored keepsakes and mementos of human life, such as books and vinyl records.) With Sally growing hostile, Jack urgently recites stanza XXVII of Horatius (The Lay),[11] a poem about Horatius, a Roman soldier who held a bridge against enemies, and proceeds to trigger the device, destroying the entire space station which also kills Beech and apparently himself. By doing so, the remaining drones on the Earth are destroyed. 

Three years later, Julia is living a peaceful life in Jack's forest retreat, and has given birth to a daughter, although she is still grief stricken by Jack's death. Through the surrounding forest, members of the former resistance appear, having visibly eschewed their armour and weaponry for more natural clothing. As Julia recognises them, 'Jack', the clone of team 52, steps forward and the two hold each other's gaze.
