OVERRATED: 'Oblivion' (2013)

Ambitious and beautiful to look at, this sci-fi epic starts off strong in imagining a fallen futuristic Earth, but ultimately a script that veers too close to the lower-budget (and far more interesting) 2009 film "Moon" wastes all that potential, sending a decent premise careening into twist-heavy gibberish. Still, if you had to pick a human to robotically roam an abandoned Earth after the apocalypse, the ever-resilient Tom Cruise seems like a safe bet.
