Edge Of Tomorrow

Description: How would you feel if you were given another chance to do better in the face of death? What if it happens more than once? The main hero, who died on the battlefield, wakes up as the war approaches. How much do you need to improve your skills to change your destiny and that of others?

Okay, I'll say this, you take Tom Cruz-Corn and a script from Whistleblower Day, then you add aliens and lots and lots of explosions. Do I need to say anything else? Most of this movie is a non-stop rollercoaster full of action and some pretty "fun" deaths of the main character. But the action, mmmm, the action that you want to watch on the biggest possible screen, because it is really "sweetly" done. And I think it's clear to everyone that Tomuk does really well in action movies, but the supporting actors really don't disappoint here, especially Emily Blunt, who had to play a rather difficult role in the whole story.

Personally, the beginning of the film is stronger than the second half, I think it is because, while explaining how and what is happening here, you identify more with the main character. And the military units and attacking aliens themselves look really good and create chaos on the battlefield. However, the film is not just a joke, it often stops to "digest" everything you've seen so far and for the characters to explain more rules.

The film feels very "standard" in some places, after a while, towards the end, everything becomes clear and the story itself seems to have lost the momentum it had. Most of the time manipulations don't appear much in the second half, and the aliens themselves are now starting to follow classic "Destroy one and win the war" strategies. Although in the beginning you felt like you were learning and experiencing everything along with the main character, by the end it felt like everything was already known or we didn't know as much as our main character. Who kicks a bit out of the world of film…

Overall - 8/10
