An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (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. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Vrataski take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy!Written by

The dam is identified by Dr Carter as "Curnera dam, in Germany". The "Lai da Curnera" lake indeed has a dam but it is not in Germany, it's in Switzerland. See more »

Stop! Wait, wait, wait, wait! Stop! Wait a second, wait a second! I've been thinking... I mean, this thing is in my blood. So maybe there's some way I can transfer it to you.
I've tried everything, it doesn't work.
I mean have you tried... you know... tried ALL the options.
Oh, you mean sex? Yeah, tried it.
...how many times?

In 2020 good sci-fi is hard to find so i looked back to 2014 and found this gem which is better than just about anything made in the last few years.
This is an action packed alien invasion / time loop story which I very much enjoyed. The main characters are well acted as are the support, there is some intentional humour even during the brutal action sequences. I was worried the time loop narrative would get repetitive and boring but story moved along quickly enough to keep me interested
The sets and production values are AAA blockbuster standard but are let down slightly by the predictable CGI monsters moving at lightening speed that all these types of movies seem to have.
All in all 8 stars from me.
