Edge of Tomorrow

I too saw it this weekend with my son. We both dug it as well. Wasn’t expecting humor, but there is plenty of understated humor here. The ending, well… I think they hollywooded it out. I’m thinking the novel “All You Need is Kill” may have something provided an alternate ending?

I was pretty confident we would not be watching a redundancy with the notion of living the days over and over again. Like Ground Hog day, Cruise’s character learns, sometimes quickly, how to do things differently and that is what propels the movie. It takes some solid right turns at the right places and keeps the viewer engaged.

The aliens are intense.

Edge of Tomorrow is a thinking man’s sci-fi. Pay attention because you are thrust all over in place and time and to see how the story unfolds.

Highly recommend
