Edge of Tomorrow, based upon the Japaneze light novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroski Sakurazaka, is a big improvement compared to Tom Cruise’s last two sci-fi flops, Oblivion (2013) and War of the Worlds (2005). In this film Cruise plays military officer William Cage, who is extremely opposed to dying in combat after an alien invasion devastates Europe. With a weapon designed to wrap around the soldiers’ bodies like armor, a sergeant played by Emily Blunt (Looper, Your Sister’s Sister) brings the world’s armies new hope. A chance encounter between the two on the battlefield creates a chain of events that sends this movie into a Groundhog Day-esque tailspin. Once you get your noodles straight you will discover that Edge of Tomorrow is funny and creative just as much as it is violent and action-packed.
