Jack was one of the last repairmen stationed on Earth. the planet had been destroyed 60 years ago during a way against a race of invaders known as Scavengers. the moon was destroyed, causing earthquakes and tsunamis on Earth. they were defeated by nuclear weapons, which also left the planet uninhabitable. the remaining humans migrated to a space station called the Tet, while Jack and Vika maintained the drones that defended the power stations from Scavengers.
with only computer effect to work on, the film was visually breathtaking in many ways. the drones were like merciless killers, taking down all humans found. unfortunately, the characters didn't have enough development to have us sympathizing their deaths. often the characters fought to stay on the likable side, while sometimes fell into the unlikable side, especially for the main character. the twists in the second half of the film, having the same characters appearing at different set of locations was however, very impressive and quite unexpected.
