Tom Cruise shows he’s an action hero to reckon with in this intriguingly mysterious sci-fi film.
It’s 2077 and a war with invading aliens has left Earth a wasteland. With the surviving humans evacuated, Cruise and his by-the-book partner Andrea Riseborough have been left behind to maintain hi-tech surveillance drones.
Their memories have been wiped as a precaution against capture, but Cruise is haunted by puzzling dreams and, when a spacecraft containing Olga Kurylenko crashes to Earth and Morgan Freeman appears on the scene, his world is turned upside down…
The characters are thinly drawn, but the stars are very watchable and this dazzling, intelligent sci-fi excels with its action scenes.
