Griff: Yeah, well, I've never been with two girls at the same time before. But you can bet, when that day comes, I'll make it work. Edge of tomorrow" is smart, entertaining, exciting and fun. It's an original movie as well, not a sequel or a remake (although I hear it might be inspired by a novel or graphic novel). Tom Cruise - who plays a slightly different character than usually - is good, he always brings his best. He cares about his projects and demands to do as much stunts as possible. His passion can be seen here too and he is again a joy to watch, but this isn't a movie for Cruise to carry.

Edge of Tomorrow, aka Live. was a surprise on a number of levels when it was released back in 2014. First, it was yet another example of Tom Cruise never aging, and still being one of the most bankable A-listers around. Second, it proved that The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman still had some juice left in him after the not-so-awesome Jumper. And finally, it showcased that Emily Blunt is a certified badass. They asked me to do two months before I started ‘Mary Poppins. Tom was like, ‘Can you go this autumn?’ and I was like, ‘No, I can’t go, I’m playing Mary Poppins for like a year, dude! I can’t do ‘Edge of Tomorrow.
The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Tom 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 agai. nd again.
Edge of Tomorrow - like Looper and Chronicle - works because we are engaged with the characters and their relationships within the film, which are subsequently challenged and strained by the film's high concept. There are "internal logic" problems in all three of these films, but that doesn't really matter, because these movies aren't about their own internal logic - they are about how the audience connects with relationships between the characters, and the great "what if?" idea tucked within that high concept. And for the same reason, we rarely get the kind of neat, definitive ending Edge of Tomorrow offers, because it's better business to leave the door open for future films.
Tom Cruise has been reliving the same situation over and over for a seemingly infinite amount of time, learning from his mistakes, but failing over and . It’s only fitting that Cruise’s role in Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow reflects the path his career has taken in recent years. Since his quasi-comeback of sorts in 2008, he’s drifted from project to project whether it be Knight and Day, Jack Reacher or Oblivion, with hopes that it’ll be the next Mission: Impossible for him. And after each respective film underperforms, he reboots and starts again.
