Action packed scenes. A dazzling spectacle.

"What do we do now? I don't know. We've never gotten this far."

Frankly, thus far I am very disappointed about the movies I was looking forward to for so long. In "Godzilla" the infamous monster was totally absent, "Transcendence" was too ordinary and meaningless, "Divergent" was just another SF Fantasy tale for teenage girls, "300 Rise of an Empire" was just like "300", "The Expendables 3" looked exhausted and are in need of a replacement and "Pompeii" was a storm in a teacup. Only "Robocop", "Guardians of the Galaxy","Maleficent" and "Captain America: Winter Soldier" could surprise and enchant me. I wasn't expecting much from "Edge of Tomorrow". Partly due to the fact that Mr. Cruise probably would be shining on the screen again the way he always does. That's what I thought! What a …

Doing the same thing over and over-and it's fun!

An action-oriented spin on the formula laid out in Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow/Live Die Repeat is a cleverly written crowd-pleaser with two great performances from Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Doug Liman does the impossible to keep the film a rollicking and often funny blockbuster without the premise growing stale or boring. Bravo, sir. Cruise is STILL a solid lead actor when it comes to playing action heroes and he has fun here playing against time as someone who's originally a bloody coward. Emily Blunt is predictably beautiful despite playing a battle-hardened soldier but she completely sells it that she is a tough-as-nails fighter. It's quite a transformation from her roles in romantic comedies and costume dramas. The screenplay is one of the more consistently entertaining in some …

"Edge Of Tomorrow" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 10/31/2014

A cowardly military media relations officer is conscripted to the front lines of a counter attack during an alien invasion and finds that he keeps reliving the same day over and over again. Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers in this tongue in cheek sci-fi blockbuster penned by Christopher (The Usual Suspects) McQuarrie. This is the kind of film that in the wrong hands could have been a painfully tedious exercise in American military gung ho machismo, but thankfully McQuarrie makes sure that it never takes itself too seriously and making Cruise's character a rather cowardly, inept soldier works wonders for his likeability. It's also good to see Bill Paxton back in space marine uniform and Brendan Gleeson is as fun as always as his grumpy commanding officer and the battle sequences are …

strange i didn't review this earlier but its a good thing as i watched it again and its far better the second time and easier to understand so i would defentially reccomend watching it again.
Tom cruise is back in a sci fi but with a twist and what seems a new movie name from edge of tomorrow to live die repeat. personally i think the new title is lame and sounds like a steven segal b movie. but that aside this is a very good and enjoyable movie.
cruise plays a cowardly soldier who thinks he is better suited to speaking that fighting but gets forced into the fron line to fight the aliens but cue a groundhog day sernario he dies and wakes up back where he started and gets to re-live the same day over and over during this time he works out how to fight and survive thanks to emily blunts …

Toss Some Aliens Into the Mix

LeeAnn M. - wrote on 06/11/2014

This movie practically begs people not to see it. It takes the premise of Groundhog Day and Source Code, and also tosses in alien invasion on top of it (similar to Oblivion.) It shouldn't have worked, but it did. Edge of Tomorrow is one of the best movies of 2014. Bill Paxton's character was played to perfection. Tom Cruise's Major Cage character is genuinely scared as he is thrust into a front line of a last ditch invasion without any military combat experience. Great visual war scenes. This movie also loved to poke fun at itself. It's as if the writer knew people would make the Groundhog Day comparisons, so he named the female character "Rita", the same name of Andie McDowell's character in Groundhog Day. This movie has some hysterically funny situations of how Major Cage resets to …

Keeps You On the Edge - Every Time

Chris Kavan - wrote on 06/08/2014

Tom Cruise hasn't had the best luck with the whole sci-fi genre, but like any good actor, he didn't give up. And with Edge of Tomorrow, it turns out that was a good thing. Although the film has been compared to Source Code (and Groundhog Day) with the "repeating day" scenario, it manages to put its own mark on the premise. A lot of that isn't just Cruise, but also Emily Blunt, who proves she could hang with any of the big-names in action (Sigourney Weave, Linda Hamilton) by turning what could have been a one-note character into a compelling reason to care about humanity.

The opening finds the Earth under attack from an alien invasion that started in Germany and soon spread out across Europe. Dubbed "Mimics" the aliens have proven to be nigh unstoppable - always appearing to be one …

On the 'Edge' of Awesome

Snoogans - wrote on 06/08/2014

The first legitimate surprise of the 2014 summer movie season. I thought 'Edge of Tomorrow' would, at the least, be entertaining because of it's premise. I'm happy to report that it delivers on that expectation and on every other level. The 'repeating' effect that the main character goes through is presented in a way that never once felt boring. He repeats the same day almost hundreds of times, but we only see the best parts. The moments that are shown multiple times play out much differently than expected. All the revisits had a purpose to push the plot forward, because he's using this unwanted gift to find a means to destroy the alien opponent. The action increases tensity with each alteration. It's sort of like a video-game, in that he remembers his steps from the previous day …

X-Men Was Good, But "Edge" is Better

Looneymanthegreat - wrote on 06/06/2014

Sci-fi Groundhog Day is an idea that has been explored before in Source Code, but I honestly prefer Edge of Tomorrow over Source Code. Edge of Tomorrow takes a little bit more from Groundhog Day then I would prefer, but the execution here is nearly flawless. It’s about as good as a big brainless blockbuster can be.

Director Doug Liman taps into the same energy here that The Dark Knight used so perfectly. It is able to keep a constant and thrilling pace while still establishing character and giving out a message that’s a little bit deeper then your average Sci-fi actioner. Liman is best known for the first Bourne Identity movie, which is my favorite in the series, and that breakneck style that he uses is what keeps “Edge” from getting bogged down in its own heavy …
