EDGE OF TOMORROW (M)
ADVENTURES OF A REPEAT DEFENDER, US, 111 MIN
A futuristic action adventure bound to steadily fascinate rather than truly thrill. In a plot that could be described as Groundhog
Day meets Predator, Tom Cruise stars as an under-skilled soldier who keeps dying on the battlefield as an alien invasion begins. For reasons best not revealed here, our hero repeatedly gets the opportunity to learn from his mistakes. That’s right: time starts all over again, and with each new life, a little more vital info is learned about a dominant and mystifying enemy. Though lacking the sophistication of modern time-bending classics such as Looper and
Inception, the movie applies a solid grip from start to finish.
