This week in family viewing, we’ve got Oblivion, a sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise as the last man on Earth. Read on to find out if it’s appropriate for the whole family.

In Theaters This Week:



What’s it about? While working as a repairman on an abandoned, post-Apocalyptic Planet Earth, Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) discovers that he’s not alone — and that everything he knows has been a lie.

Who’s it for? It’s rated PG-13 “sci-fi action violence, brief strong language, and some sensuality/nudity.” It’s safe for teens, as the action is not particularly intense..

Is it any good? Critics say Oblivion is visually striking but narratively thin, though Cruise’s strong performance helps to enliven the proceedings.
