The Earth is at war with aliens called “mimics” and they seem to know all the humans’ moves.
Military PR man, Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) is thrown into battle where he kills an Alpha. What he doesn’t know, he repeats the day over and over again, and the battle before was won by Rita (Emily Blunt) who had the same “powers” as Cage. The only way to use this power is to die. To stop the mimics, Cage must find the Omega/brain and destroy it.
What’s Good about Edge Of Tomorrow:
- It’s pretty funny. The “Cage constantly being shot” compilation clip is actually hilarious and the jokes are actually somewhat good.
- It’s easy to understand the plot, but the plot is still complex.
What’s bad about Edge of Tomorrow:
- Maybe the worst ending to a good movie I have ever seen. Just… horrible. I can’t spoil the ending. It’ll be after the final rating
Review Awards ;

“On your feet, maggot!”, “I wish I didn’t know you, but I do”, “Think we better start over, don’t you?”, “No, sir. I’m from Kentucky.”
Winner: “I wish I didn’t know you, but I do.”
Winner (no competition): The “Cage getting shot” compilation clip.
Final rating: 9.5
SO CLOSE to that 10. That ending was really bad.
This is an extra section just on how bad the ending was.
Last chance not to be spoiled!
So, Cage loses his “day-resetting” powers, he blows up the Omega and then he wakes up in the Helicopter from the beginning and Rita wins not just the battle, but the war.
Cage comes to the army base and finds Rita who asks him, “Yes? What do you want?” and Cage cracks up… cut to credits.
What? NO! I’m so confused! If you’ve seen the film and you get it, comment below!
