Edge Of Tomorrow

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to little more than a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

    Pros:

    Original take on the ‘day repeating’ scenario.

    Good effects on the metal actions suits and aliens.

    Cons:

    Could have been a more ‘hardened’ ending.

    Overall:

    A sci-fi version of Groundhog Day has Tom Cruise playing Bill Cage, a PR strategist sent into the front line of the futuristic war against an alien species. After only lasting a few minutes in battle he awakes to the exact point he was 24 hours earlier. He then relives the day over and over again going through the different options and scenarios, but all leading to the same outcome, his death, only to reset and start again. Emily Blunt plays the super soldier Rita Vrataski he enlists to help train his skills and to work out what is going on with his life resetting and learn from his deaths. She is also all too happy to help to help him reset each day by shooting him in the head.

    It is a fresh take on the Groundhog Day scenario with the war twist of beating the enemy rather than someone trying to better themselves to get to the next day. The performances are good and Cruise plays a believable bumbling office worker thrown into the front line after getting on the wrong side of his superiors.

    It will keep you guessing throughout the movie as to what will happen next and has a number of funny moments as you would expect (and some not expect) when watching someone reliving through the same day over and over again.
