'Oblivion' Review

A little bit Wall-E, a little bit I Am Legend, the post-apocalyptic sci-fi film Oblivion is a sumptuous visual-and-musical feast. Is that enough? I say yes, but barely: As this Tom Cruise vehicle rolls along, it becomes obvious how lacking it is in the story department. Usually, that's a deal-breaker for me. This time, I was willing to forgive -- up to a point. My review is up at Screen International.
