Critic Reviews for Edge of Tomorrow

via Rotten Tomatoes

Cruise is a delight, exactly what he needs to be, fluid enough for comedy, physical enough for action, always going with the flow and yet finding ways to make moments memorable.

[Cruise] delivers a one-man master class in his own fascinatingly protean screen presence.

Edge of Tomorrow is clever enough that the viewer doesn’t have to feel embarrassed sitting in the audience but not so clever that there’s no fun to be had.

I’m not sure “Edge of Tomorrow” holds much repeat viewing potential among teenage movie consumers, since the movie’s a self-repeating entity to begin with. But once is fun.

The tag line alone – “Live. Die. Repeat.” – guarantees $30 million at least on opening day. It will deserve every penny.

Is this great art? Of course not. But it’s a kick.

It feels straight out of a thumb-worn, 1959 issue of Galaxy Magazine, an enjoyably pulpy hunk of military science-fiction with a premise that’s part Groundhog Day and part Starship Troopers.

The film’s second half, however, disappoints in many respects.

This is a movie with a lot on its mind. Perhaps too much.

“Edge of Tomorrow” is slick, but once its fancy plot dressing takes form, it has little more to offer aside from a few impressive action sequences and the infallible grin of its nimble lead.

A surprising and unforgettable adrenaline rush and is so far the summer’s best action film.

A terrific, fast-paced action flick. (Please ignore the terrible title, trailer and ad campaign.)

Edge of Tomorrow isn’t without its faults… but those are minor annoyances for a film that proves to be such a satisfying breath of fresh air in a summer packed with sequels.

I liked it well enough, but felt like I had seen it before, again and again.

It works in both action and humor and deftly handles what could have been an overly complicated story.

The rest of the cast has less to do because this is Tom Cruise’s movie through-and-through, but they’re all given moments of humor, terror or simple eccentricity.

Fast, exciting, surprisingly witty and just plain satisfying..the first really exciting movie of the summer-the most original, the most invigorating and the most entertaining.

Moderately engaging, but not up to the level of truly outstanding summer action fare. You could say that it’s on the very edge of being a winner.

An entertaining version of a video store clerk making a love connection between the boxes for Groundhog Day and Starship Troopers.

Intriguingly effective and exhilarating, delving into an eternal recurrence.
