Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

Critics 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 Bros

Audience Reviews for Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow


It may not be exactly original, but this effective and expertly-edited sci-fi movie does a great job combining aliens and a Groundhog Day plot with top-notch visual effects and a fantastic sound design, while Tom Cruise sells his character's evolution with a typical magnetic performance.

Doug Limon steers a pretty good script (think what if Groundhog Day married Starship Troopers) with exciting visuals and dynamic storytelling skills to make this one a hella summer thrill ride from start to finish. Insectoid alien hordes want terra firma for their own yet again ... and this time they can't lose cause they've got a secret weapon. Only they - and we, too - failed to consider the surprising charisma between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt that enlivens this sci- fi love-in way past expectations and then some. Me likey.

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