“There is a house above the world where the over-people gather.”
Co-opting Joseph Kosinski’s new movie as a comic-book film just because he first planned it as a graphic novel would be a stretch, but if the next Superman film has as much sense of sky and flight and the authority of altitude as “Oblivion”, it’ll be doing well. If it’s as derivative and loosely plotted and filches its score from “Inception”, then not that. Place your bets.
“Oblivion” is at least a notable entry in Architecture Cinema, and I reviewed it here for Critic’s Notebook.
