Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow
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.

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 is a winner all the way, whether he's being a gung-ho hero or the butt of the joke."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"More story than testosterone, more time-jump-cuts than spacey filler, and more war-as-hell than war-as-cool. Leaves you pondering if we're 'masters of our fate' or just action-figures going through the emotions in some supreme player's idea of a war game."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"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)
"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
"With its intriguing premise, engaging characters, and plenty of thrills to go around, Edge of Tomorrow makes for a breath of fresh air in a genre that has been crushed under monotony as of late."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"It's an exceptionally entertaining, consistently humorous, and surprisingly moving story sporting top-notch visual effects..."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"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)
"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
"A deftly calibrated sci-fi spectacle."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Tom Cruise once again shows why he's still a movie star in this exciting, inventive and witty sci-fi actioner."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"It succeeds on modest terms, yet it's certainly not worth repeating over and over."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
