Consensus: Gripping, well-acted, funny, and clever, Edge of Tomorrow offers entertaining proof that Tom Cruise is still more than capable of shouldering the weight of a blockbuster action thriller.

Edge of Tomorrow is a decent time waster, but if you're the sort of person who watches a movie every day, you should probably look for something better.

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?

It's the rare summer spectacle that, tacked-on coda notwithstanding, might actually warrant repeat viewings.

Ultimately, this is a two-hour video game. But the filmmakers play it well.

This is a movie about Tom Cruise working very, very hard to please the world.

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.

It's a fairly lightweight, but high quality summer movie. The kind you can just sit back and enjoy while you munch your popcorn.
