Edge of Tomorrow – A Review

July 11, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Edge of Tomorrow – The Plot (What they say): The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to 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. And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

Is it any good?

An action flick with Tom Cruise is always going to offer plenty of action and thrills and spills and Edge of Tomorrow offers this in spades. Unlike other ageing action stars Tom Cruise is readily able to poke fun at himself and chooses love interests which are more age appropriate (albeit that Blunt is 20 years younger than the 52 year old Cruise).

The film had the potential to become quite repetitious but through a tight script and clever directing this was avoided.

As is expected the CGI and set design are of a high quality and the story line engaging.

While the ending was predictable it is an enjoyable movie that kept our interest.

If you like:

  • Mission Impossible
  • Die Hard
  • War of the Worlds
  • World War Z
  • Starship Troopers

Then you will like Edge of Tomorrow
