After watching the first 15 minutes or so of "Edge of Tomorrow" I thought here we go again - another shoot em up/alien invasion action movie, yawn. However I was wrong , this film evolved into an interesting,intelligent and gripping story in which Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt give excellent performances. After Cruise's character dies in battle , he goes into a weird time loop where he is forced to relive the events of the day of his death over and over again. At first he is perplexed by this but then meets a female warrior played by Emily Blunt , who reveals to him the mystery of his condition and how to use it to defeat the "Mimics" , an invasive and destructive alien phenomenon ,who Blunt and Cruise eventually realise are controlled by a hive mind. Together Blunt and Cruise try to defeat this enemy and save humanity. I dont normally enjoy action movies , but this one hit the spot and ticked all the boxes.Very entertaining.
