In this tremen­dous sci-fi ac­tion thriller Tom Cruise stars as a cow­ardly mil­i­tary PR ex­pert who be­comes an un­will­ing army grunt and ends up re­liv­ing the same day of ex­trater­res­trial com­bat over and over again. Some­how caught in a time loop, Cruise’s shirk­ing, clumsy wimp is ini­tially a fig­ure of fun, but as he re­peats the same sit­u­a­tions of train­ing and fight­ing he grad­u­ally hones his skills, team­ing up with Emily Blunt’s badass vet­eran war­rior in a bid to de­feat the ten­ta­cle-wav­ing en­emy. The darkly comic early scenes are great, and Cruise is a win­ner all the way. Dir: Doug Li­man 2014, 12, 135min
