Tom Cruise has been lining up the big budget sci fi and action films lately. He’s been really trying to cement himself as the go to leading man. Which he might actually be at this point.
Tom Cruises latest film ‘The Edge of Tomorrow’ looks to be Goundhog Day meets Sci Fi epic. The film’s visual effects look astounding and Cruise looks as capable as always. He doesn’t have much range but what he does do, he does pretty well. No denying that.
The official synopsis is:
‘The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.’
