Fast-paced and clever, with some laugh-out-loud moments, and some real pathos thrown in for good measure.  Tom Cruise in in fine form, and it’s great fun to watch him go from feckless and clueless to ass-kicking hero in the space of one oft-repeated day.  Although it’s build around the premise of a potentially endless time loop, Edge of Tomorrow rarely repeats itself; it always seems to come up with some new twist on its own formula, so that it moves inexorably – but not predictably – forward, even as it loops back again and again.  Someone described this movie (accurately) as “Groundhog Day with violence.”  In other words: awesome.

  1. I was wondering what you were going to think of this. Glad you enjoyed it. Definitely one of my favorites of the year thus far. More eyes need to see this, unfortunately it fell victim to poor marketing

    • I agree, Robbie! A pretty clear candidate for Most Overlooked Movie of 2014.
