Movie– Edge of Tomorrow
TL; DR– Tom Cruise and the Konami code! 93%
Basics– Tom Cruise plays a sleazy military recruiter who through his own fault is thrown into the worst military blunder in history. While there, he accidently eats a piece of a time traveling alien, gaining the power to reverse time when he dies. He embarks on a quest to become the hero and save the human race one continue at a time.
Story– This is an excellent single serving Sci-Fi movie. In a few short minutes, you learn the problems of the world, see how the world works, and jump right in the action. I loved that. Rapid pace made the fact that many scenes were direct repeats of one another very awesome and fun to watch. I watched the same day over 3000 times and didn’t get tired of it! Ending is a bit too much Deus ex machina for the heroes, but it will do. 5/5
Actors– I really liked all the major players in this one. Cruise does an excellent asshole who learns to be a hero. The Emily Blunt, the female lead, does a good job too, but she’s a bit too much of a tough as nails bitch through most of the movie. The secondary characters all don’t get enough time to really develop themselves, and that truly is a shame! Those guys are almost as interesting as the main characters! 4/5
Cinematography– I loved this, hands down. Things look cool and fresh even after the 300th time through the world. I loved everything I saw. Robot suits and aliens are an awesome mix in big budget well done movies! 5/5
Summary– It’s not perfect, but it’s fun. It’s great single serving Sci-Fi that tells a great story with great actors. I DON’T want a sequel as this movie told all the story it needs too. I felt this was an excellent meal from the salad course opening to the desert course. Well worth your time to see this movie! 93%
