Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow

Buy Watch Repeat

I never saw this movie in theaters because, to my mind, there were a lot of things working against it. The first strike was Tom Cruise, an actor who I can never see as a character, only as "Tom Cruise the Actor Playing So and So". Plus I felt like the subpar "Oblivion" had put me off against Tom Cruise sci-fi movies. A silly reason, I admit, but there you are. Second silly reason was Emily Blunt, another actor I wasn't particularly fond of (this time for no good reason at all). Thirdly, a "Groundhog Day"-esque plot that just felt silly and trite. Honestly if I wasn't bored and just a little curious about this anticipated train wreck I probably would never have watched it. With all of those disclaimers out of the way, I can shamefully admit that I was completely wrong about everything. This movie was the best science fiction movie I've seen in the last ten years. Tom Cruise started off as a cowardly, full-of-himself egocentric jerk (something I imagine came rather easily to him, which probably explains some of my nonsensical prejudice against him) but managed to turn into a confident, resourceful and smart character by the end of the movie, and someone that I was really rooting for. Emily Blunt was a badass through and through, no other way to put it. If you're lamenting the lack of awesome, strong women characters in movies, you need to watch this one. She whips Tom Cruise into shape and kicks some serious alien butt. And the plot, while it could be accurately described as a sci-fi "Groundhog Day", was solid and interesting. The aliens in the movie were unique and kind of cool--I wish we could have seen more of them--and the costumes were really awesome and the side characters funny and not overused. The movie didn't take itself too seriously and had some genuinely funny moments. The ending, without giving anything away, was perfect. Overall, I'm really glad that I watched this movie, my silly prejudices against it notwithstanding. It's definitely the best Tom Cruise movie I've seen in decades, and the coolest original science fiction movie I've seen in a long time (sorry Jupiter Ascending and Interstellar, I'm afraid no such claim will be said about you, and I had such high hopes too). Edge of Tomorrow is definitely worth a watch.
