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 time and the visual effects are very impressive for the budget (which is smaller than your usual popcorn flick).
