On a planet far, far away, a race of highly advance and intelligent beings on an over populated planet sent out nanobots to terraform a distant planet they felt could sustain their life. That planet being Earth.
Upon arriving Earth the ship broke into eight parts while the mothership remained in orbit. 4 parts fell into the sea, the rest on land. All communications from Earth were ignored. After the world's nations finished auguring among themselves it was decided that they blasted the mothership to space bits with missiles. Meanwhile In the depths of the oceans, the machines chanced upon echinoderms—starfish
The nanobots penetrated the rigid endoskeletons of the starfish and began to multiply in symbiosis with their hosts.
The resulting creatures fed on soil. They ate the world and spat out poison. Toxic to earth life but suitable to the beings that sent them. When the machines arrived on land, they concluded that in order to fulfill their objective of xenoforming the planet, they would have to remove the obstacles standing in their way.
That's where the movie starts.
I don't think it's deliberate, but it's a kick (for me, anyway) that the film topsy-turvies those glib early roles Tom Cruise used to play. This is a fantastic character arc for him. Cruise is Major William Cage, smug face of U.S. Army media relations. He's more of a corporate soldier, but the factoring element is that he's a craven corporate soldier. His only combat experience consists of a stint at R.O.T.C. while in college. Cage talks the talk, would rather not walk the walk.
Humanity has been under siege for the past five years from a relentless alien race what seems preternaturally aware of every counter-move made by Earth's defenses. One cool thing to come out of this is that the nations of the world have aligned into the United Defense Forces - so thumbs up, yeah, for solidarity brought about by extreme self-interest. It's been a losing war, except, suddenly, comes the Battle of Verdun which registers the first significant win for our side. And now comes Project Downfall, Earth's one major push for victory.Read more ›
1) Kickass super-heroine - While many lament the absence of women from the modern superhero boom (and rightfully so,) this movie delivers that rare woman warrior. At the start, Tom Cruise is the puny wimp, while Emily Blunt is the fearless leader of Earth's entire army. She swings this ridiculously giant manga-style sword and crushes aliens like nothing. It's simply great and cool to see anybody doing this, but especially a lady.
2) Sci-fi D-Day - This movie showcases a classic "storming of Normandy" sequence where instead of Americans attacking Germans, it's power-suited humans airdropping onto the beach to make battle with alien enemies. It's big, epic, loud and thrilling.
3) Comedy - This movie's hysterical. The dark humor milks the premise of the repeating/neverending day for all the jokes it can, where things change in novel, unpredictable ways.
4) New aliens - Tired of the same old aliens that are humanoid with 4 limbs or look like big bugs? Just as this film offers fresh spins on other tired cliches, the bad guys here are the most distinct and unique creations in sci-fi cinema that I can remember for quite some time.
5) Big ideas - This film combines a plethora of heady themes: destiny, heroism, politics, morality, war, choice, etc. where the viewer has many deep things to contemplate while riding the roller coaster plot.Read more ›
In a not too distant future an alien race called `The Mimics' are quickly taking over large populations of Earth. Major William Cage (Cruise), a spokesman for the United Defense Forces, is not a military man, but that doesn't stop General Brigham from ordering him to take up arms and join the front lines of the battle to take back France; a sort of D-Day reboot with Aliens.
"Edge of Tomorrow" uses the same storytelling method as "Groundhog's Day", "Looper" or "Source Code" and surprisingly brought some of that "Groundhog's Day" humor along for the ride. Major Cage is a fish out of water as he is suited up in the high-tech exo-skeleton battle armor and the creators use the time looping moments to successfully hilarious moments.
Bottom line, Tom Cruise makes great movies and "Edge of Tomorrow" is no exception. It is everything that is great about summer blockbusters and it is everything that has been forgotten about cinema in general. There once was a time when you weren't so certain about the fate of the characters in your movie, full-well knowing that they are either invincible or planned for the sequel. There once was a time when action movies made you actually feel something other than, "Eww, that was cool." And it does that as well.
"Edge of Tomorrow" is a must see for every reason possible.Read more ›
