Edge of Tomorrow ( or Live. Die. Repeat.) is a 2014 American military science fiction thriller film directed by Doug Liman. It stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. The screenplay is based on the 2004 Japanese novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The film takes place in a future where Earth is invaded by an alien race. Major William Cage (Cruise), a public relations officer inexperienced in combat, is forced by his superiors to join a landing operation against the aliens. Though Cage is killed in combat, he finds himself in a time loop that sends him back to the day preceding the battle every time he dies. Cage teams up with Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt) to improve his fighting skills through the repeated days, seeking a way to defeat the extraterrestrial invaders.


This is one of the best movies that I have ever seen. This movie is basically groundhog day. What makes it good is that one each run through it gets better. It does not get old. I enjoyed the repeats because it just kept on giving. On every repeat, cruise delivered. The movie was like a puzzle you just had to see more. I was thrilled right up until the end. The end was a bit complicated but its a nice point at which to begin a second movie in the franchise. Watch it, you will thoroughly enjoy it…
