Edge of Tomorrow

Action,Science Fiction

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped into combat. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an alpha alien down with him. But he awakens back at the beginning of the same day and is forced to fight and die again... and again - as physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop.

Director: Doug Liman

Starring: Emily Blunt,Tom Cruise,Bill Paxton,Charlotte Riley

Mr Marmite himself, Tom Cruise is back and his latest flick tastes as good as ever. Mixing a careful serving of over-the-top carnage with heaps of humour, Edge of Tomorrow is a top class action picture.

Expect the run of the mill smash and flash action scenes, but these are coupled with action sequences that are not only original, but are a thrill to behold.

Coupled with the comic chemistry and dry wit that Cruise, Emily Blunt and Brendan Gleeson have in abundance, this film has it all.

Don't believe the marketing, Edge of Tomorrow is certainly much more than just "Groundhog Day meets Call of Duty".
