    Synopsis


    Edge of Tomorrow
    Tom Cruise stars as a futuristic soldier who is killed during a battle with alien invaders, and lives out the last day of his life over and over again in director Doug Liman's adaptation of the popular Manga All You Need is Kill. In the not-too-distant future, a ferocious race of aliens dubbed "Mimics" have descended from the stars to stake their claim on Earth. Five years after arriving, they're poised to claim Europe. Because the extraterrestrial invaders prove unusually proficient in responding to mankind's typical combat strategies, the military begins outfitting its soldiers with weaponized bionic suits that increase strength, speed, and agility. Meanwhile, the military is certain that, by conducting a surprise assault on the west coast of France, they can catch the enemy off guard and defeat them. With victory in sight, General Brigham (Brendan Gleeson) tasks Major William Cage (Cruise) with heading to the front lines and selling the war to the general public. Cage, however, is wary of the assignment due to his noted lack of combat experience, and unsuccessfully attempts to blackmail Brigham. Subsequently awakening at Heathrow Airport, Cage is greeted by Master Sergeant Farrell Bartolome (Bill Paxton), who introduces the sniveling major to his new unit, J-Squad, as a deserter and a con artist. The next day, as J-Squad prepare to make the drop and attack the enemy, they are ambushed. Somehow, the aliens knew they were coming, and almost as soon as Cage lands on the beach, he is killed during a fight with a Mimic. Much to his shock, he awakens right back at Heathrow Airport, where the entire scenario begins to play out all over again. Desperate to break the cycle when it continues ad nauseam, Cage seeks the help of Special Forces soldier Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), whose victories on the battlefield have turned her into a high-profile symbol of human strength and endurance. Eventually, thanks to repeated efforts, he manages to convince Vrataski that he is reliving the same day time and again, and after conferring with brilliant but disgraced scientist Dr. Carter (Noah Taylor), the trio devise a plan to use his unique situation to gain the upper hand over an enemy seemingly able to predict mankind's every move. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      -Pros- Action Technology Story -Cons- Repetitive Story Ending It's hard to review a movie properly and not give spoilers because I always tend to want to bring up something that happens to spark a conversation and see if someone else's take on the subject sheds new light for my own thoughts. However, I will try my best to be spoiler free. I will start with the pros. The action is really nice and top notch with the fighters wearing these mechanical suits to fight alien lifeforms. The explosions and action seem much more realistic than the usual Hollywood stuff with it not being overly flashy, which is very pleasant and helps with immersion. Now for the cons. I listed the story in both the pros and the cons because I had kind of a mixed feeling about it. I tend to watch a movie with two personalities, the critic and the average joe. The critic in me wants everything to be explained down the the last detail and wants to see perfection with every movie. The average joe just wants to have a good time. With this movie a mediocre balance was struck, I was pleased with the movie as a whole and would recommend it as a buy. The start of it becomes extremely repetitive to the extent of wanting to hit the fast forward button. They seem to realize that though during the later parts of the movie with them simply explaining what happened instead of dedicating full scenes to show it. There are a few details I would like to have seen elaborated on and although the ending was satisfactory for the average joe in me, it was between bad and just let it slide kind of feeling for the critic in me.

      One of the best sci-fi films of the past decade...

      I figured that one of the few good movies to come out of Hollywood (And a film with alternating titles constantly along with being a comic book adaptation) that surprised me and most everyone who viewed it. I just loved how it combined Saving Private Ryan, with some Starship Troopers and a lot of Groundhog Day and it doesn't sound that odd once you watch it. Just go in and enjoy this sure to be classic film. The PQ is amazing, with a great filmic image (Since it was shot on 35mm film) that is gritty, but sharp and well-defined image, and is also available in 3D. The AQ is also amazing, in 7.1 DTS-HD(!), with grand, sweeping surround use, deep bass, and accurate dialogue and sound mix. The extras are not hugely extensive unfortunately (No Doug Liman/Tom Cruise commentary?) but whats included is plentiful. The biggest and best extra is a 43-minute making-of documentary which is fairly extensive, with a focus on Doug Liman but also is a fly-on-the-wall BTS as well. The are also 3 featurettes, focusing on the beach scene, weaponry and the alien creature design lasting about a half hour in total. There are a few deleted scenes along with a BBY 30-minute featurette that also comes with a DVD and a UV code to round out this Blu Ray package. All in all, recommended for action fans, Tom Cruise fans or just needing an impressive disc to show off your set up.

      Edge Of Tomorrow: Edge Of Your Seat Action.

      Edge Of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, is a science fiction movie for people who love science fiction. The "aliens are coming and they are unstoppable" theme is not original, but the thematic approach to waging the war is rather unique. What if the attacking aliens were able to go back in time to a previous day whenever they suffer catastrophic losses? The end result would most likely be an alien victory - especially if they could remember what caused them to fail each time they shift time paradoxes. Enter Tom Cruise as Officer Cage. He is a coward, and has no will to fight the enemy personally - he would rather report the news from the safety of a sound stage. Unfortunately, he has just been given an order to join the forces fighting of the front lines. What happens next forms the basis of an interesting and entertaining film. The movie's strengths are also its weaknesses - the time travel scenes get a bit overdone, and the fight scenes happen very quickly, and the aliens are detailed but move too quickly for close examination. The real meat of the movie is the relative logic of time travel - if A + B = C, what happens when you remove B? What if A simply fails to exist - what then? If you don't mind pondering a paradox or two, Edge is a movie worth seeing. Tom Cruise delivers - yet again. - Chipper F. Xavier, Esq.

      Excellent movie, best Cruise movie for me

      I am by no means a Tom Cruise maniac, but this is by far the best movie I have seen of his. I think Groundhog Day with aliens and violence is the best way this movie is summed up. Although I haven't read the source material ("All You Need is Kill" by Hiroshi Sakurazaka) I did briefly read about the summary of it and it looks like they changed the ending quite a bit. But, I can't complain as it is a movie adaptation and rarely are things true to their source, in terms of word-for-word adaptation. Anyway, that aside, I will say I enjoyed this movie a lot and wouldn't hesitate recommending to anyone who likes sci-fi action films, whether you're a Tom Cruise fan or not. It's just a good movie. The concept was pretty novel in how you can incorporate time control with bettering yourself for a single goal-in this case, defeating an enemy army invading earth. You actually see some similarities to Groundhog Day at certain points, like the barn scene and I won't go into specifics to keep this spoiler-free, but you can only imagine how many Major Cage must have repeated the same day to get to this point. Always interesting for me. The special effects were well done and both Cruise and Blunt seemed to have good chemistry. Again, great film. The HD UltraViolet is always a nice bonus as I love watching things again on the go.

      Great movie! Going to be a classic

      This going to be a classic. It has everything you want in a movie: action galore; humor; great acting; a little romance; wonderful direction and production values second to none. Despite horrible marketing of this great and very watchable movie, it is still going to be a solid success around the world. In the US, it will be another 100 million dollar movie to add to Tom Cruise's string of 100 million dollar box office winners. The script is topnotch. You live the same day with the character over and over. The character grows a little each day until he finally becomes able to see what he needs to be and what needs to be done to save the world from the alien invasion. Enough can't be said for how well this picture is crafted. It never misses a beat; and the leads Cruise and Blunt make you believe the story. Yet, the thing I appreciated most is that the humor is intrinsic to the story and not forced or artificial the way some movies use non-essential bantering humor. My hat is off to the cast, script writer and the director. It is the kind of movie you'll watch over and over because it is just that good.

      While I am not the biggest fan of Tom Cruise, I have to say that of late he's been hitting far better than during the Vanilla Sky days. This effort is probably his best in the last few years, with the possible exception of Oblivion which I though was the smartest of the recent movies he's done. What makes Edge of tomorrow work very well is that nearly every time one starts to question why something is happening that might stretch credibility, there is an answer for it. Nothing they beat you over the head with, but just something enough to keep the movie from becoming cliche. I enjoy that Tom isn't starting off as the typical super spy/hero, but works into the role gradually, starting as kind of an every man that we can identify with and progressing - painfully - into someone that understands both the stakes, and the fact that sooner or later, he's going to need to make the largest sacrifice of all. This movie, despite the promise that he'll be reliving the same day over and over again, never get's tired in the least. A smartly done movie!

      Edge of Tomorrow is one of the best sci-fi action films this year! The description "Groundhog Day crossed with Aliens" gives you a hint of what it's like, but there's a third-person gamer aspect as well. Tom Cruise had lost a bit of his shine for me due to his odd off-screen behavior, but his turn in Oblivion made me curious about this. It helps quite a bit that his character begins as a real unlikable and slimy PR rep, so it's actually fun to watch him get killed in various ways before he grows a spine. The filmmakers did just enough of the repeats of the time loop in which he gets caught to give the viewer a thorough understanding of the situation before moving forward. Emily Blunt gives a great performance as tough-as-nails soldier Rita Vratasky, and Bill Paxton's recalls his scene-stealing Hudson in Aliens. The extras are thorough, informative and entertaining, including the 25-minute Best Buy exclusive feature. And if you enjoy it, consider reading the original Japanese novella All You Need is Kill, upon which this was loosely based.

      We've seen it before. Guys dies over and over and repeats the same day but Edge of Tomorrow throws in some unique twists to the concept. I'm not a huge Tom Cruise fan but I liked his performance in this movie. He starts out as a coward who doesn't want to fight the alien threat but overtime becomes braver and braver until he's a lean, mean, alien killing machine. It's the uniqueness and twists that really sell this movie. You think you have it figured out but then it throws a curve ball. Not too many movies can pull that off and successfully deliver a satisfying experience but Edge of Tomorrow does it smoothly. I had problems with a lot of cross talk on my Samsung 55'' 3DTV, It really bugged me and this is one of the few movies in my collection to give me any problems. I can't for certain that it is entirely based on my hardware because I didn't experience this much cross talk in the vast majority of my 3D collection. You may or may not experience any cross talk while watching this movie but I experienced a lot of it.
