EARTH IS A MEMORY WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
After mankind has won a war against alien invaders, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) and his colleague (Andrea Riseborough) are part of a clean-up operation monitoring what’s left of Earth… but they’re not alone. The Tron Legacy director returns with another sci-fi adventure, just as handsomely shot and technically dazzling; it also has an electronic score that adds to the film’s dreamy qualities. Inspiration comes from more sci-fi sources than there are stars in the sky, and pacing is uneven, but Cruise is easy to take to and the depressing aspects are offset by twists in the story and the film’s visual wonders.
