Have you ever been trapped in a world with an assignment to kill and destroy what remains of the human race? The dystopian film Oblivion was released on April 19, 2013 and was directed by Joseph Kosinski.

The film Oblivion was about a generation whose minds were erased and reprogrammed to kill. The main character Jack Harper, played by Tom Cruise, is one of the prospects subjected to the control of a higher power. Oblivion took place on Earth. The main point of the film was to inform the audience about the corruption of the world and to warn the audience of the evil that lies beneath the surface. As we look back on a time in our own history where Adolf Hitler felt so much hatred towards Jews that he murdered millions. The theme of the film was to prove how likely it is for a higher power to control, kill, and destroy the human race.

This film was incredibly confusing. Although, overall I think this film was created to inform of the dangers of the world. In today’s world it is so effortless to fall under something or someone else’s control. So much so, that we forget to realize that we have worked so hard to get the newest iPhone or to imitate the most popular celebrity. In the meantime, we have lost sight of ourselves. In this sense, the author achieved to goal they were trying to reach because they portrayed the purpose of the story in the film.

In a state of oblivion it is so painless to lose yourself and to forget who you are, but it is crucial to always remember the difference between right and wrong. In a world that is lost and corrupt, remember who you are.
