Thanks to a solid supporting cast, Edge of Tomorrow offers likable characters in addition to all the thrills. The story offers enough surprises to keep you on your toes and keeps you engaged. The only reason I'm not giving this a perfect score is because the ending is a little too tidy and easy when compared to the rest of the film and what it offers. Ultimately though, this is one of my new favorites and a must see among science fiction fans and action aficionados.

I completely understand why Ti West tried to get his name off of this film, but how much of the blame he should take is still up in the air for discussion. The acting is terrible, the writing is so bad it made me cringe every time a character spoke, and the story is so stupid that you can't take it seriously whatsoever. The first one had an old school charm about it that made for a reasonably entertaining, albeit conventional, horror film. This one ratchets up the gore, throws in distasteful stunts, and is not fun to watch at all. They clearly had run out of ideas fast because they film adds in animation that is completely out of place at the beginning and end to pan the length and a couple of the plot strands get left in the dust. Just a horrible waste of time. One of the worst sequels I've ever seen.

The plot and setting are simple, but the execution is what makes this worthwhile. I was actually getting uncomfortable at times because of how tense this film can get. Revealing anything would give away the plot that slowly reveals itself. It's not going to knock your socks off, but again it is effective and well done. The acting is a little shaking in spots, but nothing terrible. Overall, this worth a trip if you like your horror films to have a little thought to them rather than splatter gore all over the screen.

Seth Rogen is his typical self here, but Zac Efron is surprisingly well-matched in this with him. I found Efron the funniest. Rose Byrne looks nice, but her and Rogen don't have much chemistry and the relationship isn't really believable. Dave Franco continues to do well in smaller roles. The rest of the cast doesn't do much. I really was going to give this a rather positive review, but the last 10 minutes completely undermine everything that came before it. Therefore, I'm lukewarm on my feelings for this. Those that like the hard R comedies will love this. I'm not usually too keen on them, but occasionally I find one I like (Superbad for example).
