The epic action of "Edge of Tomorrow" unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The conceit may sound constricting, but Liman (like Harold Ramis before him) gets exceptional mileage out of it, presenting his ever-revolving tale with visual style, narrative velocity, and a wonderful dose of dark humor."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Ultimately, this is a two-hour video game. But the filmmakers play it well."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Cruise and Blunt take you on a (literally) loopy ride that's entertaining and doesn't wear out its welcome."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"It's the writing and plotting in "Edge of Tomorrow" that sucks. Not the staging of scenes. Not the film's sense of humor. Not the film's quality action sequences."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Edge of Tomorrow is an ingenious action-comedy about how frequently movie heroes would actually die if they attempted that much crazy s***."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"This is a movie about Tom Cruise working very, very hard to please the world."
‑ David Haglund, Slate
"Cruise is better than he's been in a while because he damps down his usual all-intensity-all-the-time MO. He's best here when his character seems the most scared."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Clever and fast-paced with a welcome streak of dark humor, this sci-fi actioner is undeniably entertaining, if ultimately not terribly substantial."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Doug Liman directed, making the most of every opportunity for a quick cut, a good laugh and a new surge of adrenaline."
‑ Stuart Klawans, The Nation
"There is a good bit of humor in the movie and the performances of Cruise and Blunt are spot on, with good supporting work from Bill Paxton, who plays a very hard-headed sergeant."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Why do invading extra-terrestrials always bring with them the single thing that can wipe them out? Couldn't they have hid it on Jupiter or something?"
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"All in all, a perfectly superior example of industrially fortified Hollywood fun, and as good a guarantee as Doug Liman can offer that we haven't seen the last of him yet."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Globe and Mail
"It succeeds on modest terms, yet it's certainly not worth repeating over and over."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"This is not a run-of-the-mill genre yarn in the vein of countless modern sci-fi blockbusters, but a fascinating and enjoyable vehicle that creates an ambitious illusion."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"Keeps the pace and dialogue snappy enough for a classic screwball comedy, at least until the inevitable overkill of the boom-bastic finale, centered on an alien-infested Louvre."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
