When in fact the name of that movie is actually "Edge of Tomorrow" and "Live Die Repeat" is that movies tagline, interestingly, The sequel to Edge of Tomorrow was retitled to "Live Die Repeat & Repeat" after finding out audience's were more receptive of the tagline than the title.

During a scene where the main character is overhearing radio chatter, some one says "over and out" which is incorrect radio procedure. "Over" means "my message is finished and I am waiting for your reply." "Out" means "I have finished talking to you and don't expect a reply." One would never say "over and out"; one would either say "over" to continue a conversation or "out" to end it. Any military personnel allowed on a radio would know this. See more »

A strange mixture of positive reviews from the critics and low ratings from the audience. It's true that this movie does have its plusses and minuses. It's not an impressive war movie and could have benefited more from a POV perspective. There is some character revelation as it goes on which gradually makes a slow pace movie more palatable. I had to take lots of little breaks to get through it myself but I feel the twist ending makes it worthwhile.
