Product Description

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt star in this sci-fi action feature based on the light novel 'All You Need Is Kill' by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. New Special Forces recruit William 'Bill' Cage (Cruise) is equipped with a powered exoskeleton and sent on a mission to fight a fierce alien race known as Mimics, who are ultimately unstoppable. Cage soon dies in combat but, caught in a time loop, he finds himself very much alive and once again facing the same battle. This process repeats itself several times but with every fight Cage grows stronger and more adept. He meets tough warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt) and together they try to bring down the enemy once and for all.

Synopsis

An alien race, undefeatable by any existing military unit, has launched a relentless attack on Earth, and Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) finds himself dropped into a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage is thrown into a time loop, forced to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again and again. Training alongside warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), his skills slowly evolve, and each battle moves them one step closer to defeating the enemy in this intense action thriller.

The Earth is under attack from an Alien race, our weaponry is no match for them.
Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is ordered against his will to go into combatative
service and will be dropped onto the front line of defence on the French shores.
The Major can't even stomach the sight of blood, certainly not his own, the mission
he is about to embark upon is almost certainly one in which he will be killed.
Branded as a deserter and coward he's been demoted to 'private'
On the Beaches of France the Aliens totally overwhelm Earth's attack force including
unlikely combatant William Cage, however he's been thrown into a 'Time-Loop' and
arrives back on base on the evening prior to the ill-fated attack.
This happens over and over again, he cannot make his new comrades understand
that he knows what will happen next.
On the beach he'd met celebrated 'Warrior' 'Rita Vrataski' (Emily Blunt),with the knowlede
of what had happened each time around he's able to save from certain death at that moment
in time.
Each time he returns to the beach he learns a little more and develops his skills and gradually
learn how to fight back.
Because 'Rita' also has the memories of her earlier beach encounters with the Aliens,the two
begin to form an alliance, the former Major is put through his paces by 'Rita' he has many skills
to learn.
Teaching him new skills, over and over again, preparation is everything, a little knowledge
of what happens next, an advantage ???
It seems the only hope Earth has of victory may well depend upon the few.
There is some seriously enjoyable action sequences along the way as 'William' and 'Rita'
progress a little further on each re-visit.

I enjoyed this film, more so than any other I have watched recently. I was raised on a diet of Sci-Fi so it was preaching to the converted but still I found myself grinning at points. The formula while not original was tweaked to make it fresh. Even Tom Cruise was good and at this rate needs to watch out otherwise will become credible as an actor. He does seem more relaxed when his character changes to be more of a conventional hero so perhaps it is a while yet for credibility. Given the distinctly cowardly approach taken by his character I suppose credit is due to him for sending his own screen person up so gamely.

It was good to see Bill Paxton again in a film involving aliens, he even acknowledges that he probably was given the part because of Hudson. It was also good to see Tony Way, first seen as the paperboy in an episode of Spaced, given a significant role.
I liked the no nonsense approach played by Emily Blunt's character when she and Cruise first meet and she takes him under her wing.

There is no point praising the computer effects because in this day and age if a 'blockbuster' cannot pull off believable effects then it has no hope. The battle suits look very good. Perhaps a remake of Starship Troopers could incorporate them as it should have done in the first instance. That is another story.

I have yet to watch it again but will do because of the enjoyment of watching it the first time. I did feel slightly cheated by the end but that is always the hardest thing to pull off in a film like this with such a tricky concept. I might also hunt down the Japanese book on the strength of this film.

Format: DVD
"Edge of Tomorrow" is a Westernised but otherwise reasonably faithful version of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel "All You Need Is Kill" and it is one of the cleverest SF films I have seen for a while.

This review is based on watching the film at home twice on DVD - and it is one of those films where you pick up things on the second watching which you miss first time round.

Anyone who has heard of this film will almost certainly already be aware that it involves a battle against apparently unstoppable alien invaders, and that the characters played by Tom Cruise (Major Bill Cage) and Emily Blunt (Sergeant Rita Vrataski) keep getting killed, but are caught in a time loop.

Each time Cage is killed he gets sent back to the start, but remembers what happened before, so he has the opportunity to learn how to fight more effectively and try to find new ways to defeat the alien invaders. Hence the slogan on the DVD box, "Live, Die, Repeat" which is also, as in this listing, sometimes incorporated into the title.

At the start of the film, Cage is not a very admirable character - though he holds the rank of Major he has never been near a battlefield and is basically a Spin Doctor in uniform.

(This is the main difference between the film and the book, in which the alien invasion had taken place in the Far East and the central character of the book was a Japanese raw recruit. In the film the aliens have invaded and largely conquered the European mainland. The Americans are heavily involved in the war in both the book and film, and the character of Rita is an American in the book.

Humanity has been taking a serious beating in the war against the invaders.
