Plot Summary
When Earth falls under attack from invincible aliens, no military unit in the world is able to beat them. Maj. William Cage (Tom Cruise), an officer who has never seen combat, is assigned to a suicide mission. Killed within moments, Cage finds himself thrown into a time loop, in which he relives the same brutal fight -- and his death -- over and over again. However, Cage's fighting skills improve with each encore, bringing him and a comrade (Emily Blunt) ever closer to defeating the aliens.

    Liman keeps the action and surprises coming nonstop. OK, the end is a head-scratcher. Until then, Cruise and Blunt make dying a hugely entertaining game of chance. show more

    Edge of Tomorrow covers familiar ground with unexpected wit and economy, and the result is a thoroughly entertaining sci-fi fantasy. show more

    Cruise and Blunt have a measure of chemistry, however their characters go undeveloped, given short shrift amid the spectacle. But the pulse-pounding action scenes are briskly directed by Doug Liman. show more

    The film was fairly good but flawed in that it began to drag rather than being a tight, concise telling of a story. The film basically needed twenty minutes cut out. It was if they thought viewers won't get the time-looping so we better beat it into their heads. I feel the same way about many of Hollywood's recent blockbusters in that they are too long and in being so are not good storytelling. Unfortunately, the time-looping aspect became annoying simply due to being done to death rather than as in other films where the same concept was more successful. There is a very good film in there but in the hands of a different editor. Perhaps it was based on a book and the director too closely followed the book.
