Edge of Tomorrow Reviews

  • The Matrix Revolutions meets Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow is Tom Cruise's most entertaining film in years.

    Julian Roman — MovieWeb

  • Despite its terribly unimaginative title, Edge of Tomorrow is a surprisingly imaginative summer action movie.

    Chris Nashawaty — Entertainment Weekly

  • In "Edge of Tomorrow," Mr. Liman brings Mr. Cruise's smile out of semiretirement and also gives him the kind of physical challenges at which he so brilliantly excels.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • The pulse-pounding action scenes are briskly directed by Doug Liman.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

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

    Ann Hornaday — Washington Post

  • The fact is that this is a pretty good summer-kablooie movie, and Cruise is better than pretty good in it.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • Liman and his screenwriters - Christopher McQuarrie ("The Usual Suspects") and Jez and John-Henry Butterworth ("Fair Game") - make their concept feel fresh with smart setups and ambitious (if underdeveloped) themes.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • It's a rousing spectacle, interspersed with touching moments of really hard trying.

    Joe Morgenstern — Wall Street Journal

  • The tag line alone - "Live. Die. Repeat." - guarantees $30 million at least on opening day. It will deserve every penny.

    Robert Wilonsky — Dallas Morning News

  • Edge of Tomorrow is not as inventive as Rian Johnson's time-bending noir, Looper. Nor is it as surprisingly spiritual as Groundhog Day. But it whirls with energy.

    Lisa Kennedy — Denver Post

  • The metaphorical overlay of fantasy and history is the best thing Edge of Tomorrow has to offer -- and, for much of its running time, that overlay is enough to lend the movie a shiver of curious power.

    Richard Brody — New Yorker

  • 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.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • Edge of Tomorrow is a decent time waster, but if you're the sort of person who watches a movie every day, you should probably look for something better.

    J. R. Jones — Chicago Reader

  • The whole thing begins to feel like a giant-screen videogame - with the gamer getting a little further, a little deeper, with each new push of the Start button.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Breathlessly exciting, wildly entertaining, "Edge of Tomorrow" is a wake-up call to makers of formulaic alien-invasion thrillers.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

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

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • "Edge of Tomorrow" repeats itself without being repetitive, takes itself seriously while providing some laughs and offers plenty of action without short-changing us on the intelligence front.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • Tom Cruise stars in this cleverly crafted and propulsively executed sci-fi thriller about a soldier forced to relive the same day over and over again.

    Justin Chang — Variety

  • A Tom Cruise action flick with a strong female heroine and a sense of humor? "Edge of Tomorrow'' has both of those, plus a "Groundhog Day''-style gimmick that pays big dividends. Over and over.

    Lou Lumenick — New York Post

  • A sharp sci-fi thriller that's going to be hard to beat as the summer's best blockbuster.

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star
