Film Series: Edge of Tomorrow

2014. USA. Dir: Doug Liman. With Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt. 113 min.

Live. Die. Repeat. This entertaining barrage of aliens, death, and more death plops Cruise and Blunt into the thick of a bullet-riddled battlefield with a serious case of Groundhog Day-ja? vu. The futuristic action proceeds at a frenetic yet admirably intelligent pace, making the big-screen spectacle both intimate and unexpectedly witty.
