Movie Info

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 (Tom Cruise) 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

The conceit may sound constricting, but Liman (like Harold Ramis before him) gets exceptional mileage out of it, presenting his ever-revolving tale with visual style, narrative velocity, and a wonderful dose of dark humor.

Cruise is better than he's been in a while because he damps down his usual all-intensity-all-the-time MO. He's best here when his character seems the most scared.

All in all, a perfectly superior example of industrially fortified Hollywood fun, and as good a guarantee as Doug Liman can offer that we haven't seen the last of him yet.

More story than testosterone, more time-jump-cuts than spacey filler, and more war-as-hell than war-as-cool. Leaves you pondering if we're 'masters of our fate' or just action-figures going through the emotions in some supreme player's idea of a war game.

Tom Cruise once again shows why he's still a movie star in this exciting, inventive and witty sci-fi actioner.

Cruise and Blunt take you on a (literally) loopy ride that's entertaining and doesn't wear out its welcome.

Clever and fast-paced with a welcome streak of dark humor, this sci-fi actioner is undeniably entertaining, if ultimately not terribly substantial.

It's the writing and plotting in "Edge of Tomorrow" that sucks. Not the staging of scenes. Not the film's sense of humor. Not the film's quality action sequences.

This is not a run-of-the-mill genre yarn in the vein of countless modern sci-fi blockbusters, but a fascinating and enjoyable vehicle that creates an ambitious illusion.

Edge of Tomorrow is an ingenious action-comedy about how frequently movie heroes would actually die if they attempted that much crazy s***.

There is a good bit of humor in the movie and the performances of Cruise and Blunt are spot on, with good supporting work from Bill Paxton, who plays a very hard-headed sergeant.

Keeps the pace and dialogue snappy enough for a classic screwball comedy, at least until the inevitable overkill of the boom-bastic finale, centered on an alien-infested Louvre.

Audience Reviews for Edge of Tomorrow

When people heard Cruise about to make another sci-fi movie, nobody would thought this one as a great one.. But here he is, the hero of the day with a great chemistry with Emily Blunt, a great script and directing style from Doug Liman that makes this movie strong, have character, and lovable.. Damn, i love this movie!

Edge of Tomorrow is a fine return to form for Tom Cruise that after a few lacking efforts, manages to deliver one of his strongest and best performances in the last few years. What stands out about the film is the story, which is finely crafted, exciting, captivating and memorable. Add to that a solid cast of actors that elevate the film's ideas, and you have of the most exciting action packed thrill rides in the last few years. Edge of Tomorrow is a thrilling, action packed picture, one that will grab your attention from the first frame onwards. Tom Cruise is a great choice to play the lead character, and what makes the film really worth your time is the fact that it uses a fairly simple concept, but due to its strong performances, and immaculate direction, Edge of Tomorrow is one of the finest genre films that I have seen in quite some time. The film is action packed, never dull or tedious, and with a well crafted story and futuresque vibe the film possesses, this picture succeeds on many levels as a brilliant piece of entertainment, and above all, it features Tom Cruise in a fine role that feels like it was tailored for him, and it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role. I felt that Edge of Tomorrow was one of 2014's finest action films, and with director Doug Liman who previously helmed The Bourne Identity, I have to say this is his best work since that film. He's made other films of course, but none have had the power of really grabbing your attention like the first Bourne film. Until now. With a fine blend of action and Science Fiction, Edge of Tomorrow is a memorable and constantly thrilling piece of cinema that is a must watch for anyone looking for top notch thrills. I highly recommend this film, and if you enjoy films such as District 9 and Elysium, you're surely going to enjoy this film. Edge of Tomorrow is one of 2014's very best action films.

I was pleasantly surprised by this sci-fi film. I'd read some really good reviews and they do really live up to it. I've always thought of Cruise as quite a good actor and he definitely delivers in this one. Blunt is a straight up bad-ass and I loved her character. Even though the premise of the time-loop might make you think you'll be seeing the same scenes over and over, the movie does a great job of keeping the story fresh, interesting and intense every step of the way.

I particularly liked the ending and it even got my friends and I in a friendly debate about time travel paradoxes and whatnot. This one is a must-see.
