with Tom Cruise (Eyes Wide Shut, Knight and Day, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol), Morgan Freeman (Invictus, The Dark Knight Rises, RED), Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough (Never Let me Go), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (The Baker, Game of Thrones)
From the director of Tron: Legacy

Jack Harper is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack's mission is nearly complete. Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

There is interesting concepts in this movie, in what we believe to be truth, and how ready we are to question it. The transformation of Earth, the moon, the future in a devastated New York, the new ways of living, everything is aesthetically beautiful. The action is great, Tom Cruise is still in shape, the editing flows and follows the action in a very smooth way. The relationship between characters in interesting, formalized, but definitely when it comes to feelings, the movie lacks of creativity. The enhancement of your emotion with music is terrible, you feel you are listening to a terrible action movie soundtrack, with bass and drum to the max. The other thing that fails is to be unpredictable, the beginning is interesting and slow, puts you in situation, but unfortunately, gives the audience too many clues and time to figure out what is really happening before you get to live it through the main character. Mitigated result...
