Film Review: 'Edge of Tomorrow'

30 May 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Alien invasions have long been the scourge of the cinematic planet Earth and those pesky tentacled critters are up to their old tricks again in Doug Liman's entertaining time-hopping sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow (2014). Based on Japanese writer Hiroshi Sakurazaka's slender novel All You Need is Kill, the film stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt as military hotshots seemingly destined to keep reliving the same doomed battle on a loop. Zipping along at a nifty pace, and shot through with amusing gallows humour, it plays out like an amped-up extra terrestrial Groundhog Dog (1993) which remains enjoyable with the unusual sense of watching someone else playing a big budget, on-rails video game shooter.
