Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow
Rated PG-13

Even though a lot of movies have recently been released, it’s been a while since my last movie recommendation.  Sorry for that-we were on vacation and didn’t go to the movies.  That said, I’m very excited about some of the movies playing in theaters and plan to see quite a few of them.

In Edge of Tomorrow, Europe is occupied by hostile aliens, and Major William Cage (Tom Cruise), an officer who has never seen combat, is forced into a suicide mission.  Like in the movie Groundhog Day, Cage relives each day, learning from his experiences, becoming a better soldier and trying to improve the humans’ chance for winning the war.  Decorated soldier Sergeant Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) trains and battles aliens with him.

Lately I’ve seen too many mediocre action movies (I don’t blog about them) and was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved Edge of Tomorrow.  It has all the right action movies elements- the plot is good, the characters are complex, the story line is unpredictable and it has just the right amount of humor.  Edge of Tomorrow is top-notch!
