Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)



Critic Consensus: Gripping, well-acted, funny, and clever, Edge of Tomorrow offers entertaining proof that Tom Cruise is still more than capable of shouldering the weight of a blockbuster action thriller.

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 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.(C) Warner Brosmore

Edge of Tomorrow feels like it's about something more than action. Neat trick.

Movie Habit

It's easily the highlight of the summer movie offerings to me so far.

The Young Folks

Before too long, the plot begins to cut significant corners, things get terribly convenient and, by the end, the suspect plot logic utterly falls apart in favor of an idiotically beatific ending.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

To have a fun summer blockbuster with good characters, good action, and a tight and exciting script these days is almost unheard of. The smart sci-fi action movie is back. Let's hope it happens over and over again.

Director Doug Liman has great fun with this just-go-with-it conceit.

Groundhogs Day should be proud to have had such a gritty reboot.

"Edge of Tomorrow" is a sci-fi "Groundhog Day" which is thrilling and smart. Cruise and Blunt are excellent.
