Craig's Movie Reviews

I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

07) “Edge of Tomorrow (2D)”

This had better become a video game!

This film didn’t do as well as it should have at the box office. I don’t know what else the movie going public were doing at the time of this movie’s run, but I’m sure it wasn’t as important as watching this film.

Tom Cruise is in a battle against aliens and when he dies he gets sent back to the beginning of the day. “Groundhog Day” references aside, this is a very clever premise. The filmmakers take advantage of every tragedy or joke from this outlandish scenario.

It also cleverly makes Tom Cruise’s character grow over the course of the movie. That’s unfortunately rather rare for a lot of action films. Normally the protagonist is badass and will remain badass forever.

Emily Blunt also kicks ass here. Like a mix between The Bride from “Kill Bill” and Tauriel from “The Hobbit”. Go Girl!

This movie hasn’t be greenlit for a sequel and rightfully so. I want this film to stand alone as an example of how sci-fi action should be done.
