Edge of Tomorrow takes place in a not so distant future where an unrelenting assault of an alien race known as Mimics has hit the Earth which is beyond the capability of any human military. With the planet under attack from the aliens, an inexperienced officer Major William Cage is sent in a suicide mission where he is killed immediately.
Major Cage was thrown into a “Groundhog Day” style time loop where he lives out the same scenario over and over; he fights, he dies, he fights again. Every day he wakes up and finds Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski who is always meeting him for the first time. Rita trains Major Cage and both plot a way to prevent Major Cage being killed. With the help of Rita, each time he fights, he becomes learns something and becomes more skilled. As both fights the aliens, each encounter gets them closer to winning against the aliens. They have to kill the Omega Mimic in order to win; the Omega Mimic is hiding under the glass pyramid of the Louvre Museum in France.
Edge of Tomorrow is an epic sci-fi blend of “Groundhog Day” and “Starship Troopers”; it is a very entertaining action movie with a very sharp sense of humor. It is one of the more imaginative sci-fi/action thrillers in recent years. It has a very good script, exciting visuals and the story is told very well.
It is packed with actions but it has enough humor, drama and the plot is complex which makes this move a perfect summer blockbuster. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt have perfect chemistry. The relationship between the two main characters was handled pretty well where it did not overshadowed the main story but never the less it makes you interested on what would happen to this relationship.
It is a great role for Tom Cruise but has played somewhat similar roles before. Like some in his previous movies, he has played the role so well; self-absorbed asshole but changes into a decent human being.
It stars Tom Cruise as Major William Cage, Emily Blunt as Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski and directed by Doug Liman.
