Wall-E + Moon + The Matrix + Independence Day. = Oblivion.

Pretty decent flick. Definitely a recommended rental. Not a must-see at the theater, but worthwhile.

They completely stole the ending! I won't say from what movie (if you've seen it you know), but damn! Even some specfic details...

Buzz must not see this movie. The motorcycle will ruin it for him...
Hell, it stole from LOTS of movies. Derivative as all get-out. Morgan Freeman was basically playing Morpheus. But still interesting (until the last act, which as you say was a big helping of "seen it.")

Morpheus as in Forbidden Planet? Or the Greek dude? Hell now I have to go look it up.
As in, Lawrence Fishburne in The Matrix.

Same character.

OK, SPOILERS below, don't read after Ken's quote if you don't want to see them...

If you're implying the movie stole from "Independence Day", you are sadly mistaken.

In "Independence Day", black box-office champion Will Smith played would-be astronaut Captain Hiller, who with a white sidekick pilots a small alien spacecraft to the enormous alien mothership, which they blow up with an atom bomb. In "Oblivion", white box-office champion Tom Cruise played actual astronaut Captain Harper, who with a black sidekick pilots a small alien spacecraft to the enormous alien mothership, which they blow up with an atom bomb. Totally different.
