Oblivion mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Jack sets up the motorbike, he pivots the two bars forward and locks them to form the handlebars. A few shots later as Jack looks down at the sensor, you can see one solid handlebar, all the way across.


Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, Jack helps Julia into the stasis module, and the bombs are visible by her feet. If she was switched to another module, so that the bombs were still inside but she remained on Earth, she would have woken up in the process.

Continuity mistake: After he discovers the beacon for Drone 172 was a trap, Jack takes off and leaps back over the gap he came from moments before. The camera angle behind him as he is about to hit the other side shows his arms down as he is bracing for the impact. But it cuts to in front of him and instantly Jack's arms are up in the air. He is not moving them up as the shot cuts.

More quotes from Oblivion

Question: Maybe this was explained in the film and I missed it, but it has been bugging me for a while. What happened to all the rest of the clones of Jack and Victoria after the Tet was destroyed? Presumably their daily instructions in the form of Sally would cease. Wouldn't they get suspicious? Some reasonable explanation would be nice.

Chosen answer: They would obviously notice that the Tet was gone and would no doubt have questions, but, without outside intervention, would be unlikely to be able to do anything about it, as they would have no reason not to believe that the "radiation zones" confining them to their particular area weren't real. Some would likely die fighting Scavenger groups in their areas (without the drones, they'd be increasingly vulnerable), others might be successfully contacted by those groups and thus could join with them, some may have ultimately starved without resupply from the Tet. The film only covers what happens to Jacks 49 and 52; the others likely met with a variety of different fates.


Question: Since the Moon is not gone, just broken into pieces, wouldn't this still provide the same mass, and hence the same gravitational attraction? Hard to see how the tidal effect would destroy the Earth without physically removing the Moon's mass. Makes a nice visual, but seems to fall flat on the science.

Chosen answer: The gravitational pull of the broken moon is spread out, not concentrated in a single body, and therefore broader but weaker. This would alter the tides. Whether it would do so as depicted I can't tell you.


Question: Since Jack/Victoria are clones, what is the purpose of using 'Sally'? And if Jack is having flashbacks/memories of his wife, wouldn't he have flashbacks of Sally as part of mission control?

Chosen answer: Jack and Victoria believe that they are there on behalf of the human race, so it makes sense for them to have a human face to interact with. Sally is a logical candidate - the Tet would presumably have intercepted her transmissions to the Odyssey and would therefore have plenty to work with in constructing their fake Sally as an interface with their clone workers. It's not made clear in the movie how the original Jack's memories of Julia survived to resurface in his clones, but it seems reasonable that it might be related to the powerful emotions that are associated with those memories, in this case his love for his wife. Sally and Victoria would also feature significantly in the original Jack's memories, but without the same emotional investment, those memories failed to make the transfer into his clones.
