“Battle Is The Great Redeemer!”
“A Good Enough Summer Blockbuster”
“The Sci-Fi Extravaganza That Is "Edge Of Tomorrow" Is Paced Perfectly, Well Acted, And Comically Amicale When It Needs To Be. Thanks In Part To Director Doug Liman. While The Time Looping Can Be Tiresome, It Never Distracts From Your Overall Enjoyment”
“The Matrix Revolutions Meets Groundhog Day, Edge Of Tomorrow Is Tom Cruise's Most Entertaining Film In Years.”
“Emily Blunt Shows She's More Than A Pretty Face As A True Actions Star That Will Hopefully Make Other Studios Like Marvel And Disney Take Notice.”
“If You Put Groundhog Day And Source Code And Add Some Sci-Fi In It You Get This Movie.”
“Come Find Me When You Wake Up”
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
Although the humor helps, the Groundhog Day-like repetition gets tedious; it makes you feel more like a hamster than a groundhog - or rather a hamster's wheel, going round and round, over and over again.
Todd McCarthy - Hollywood Reporter
Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow is the sci-fi answer to Groundhog Day that Source Code tried to be.
Blake Howard - 2UE That Movie Show
What a delight it is to discover an early-summer action picture whose plot is something more than a machine to generate eventual digital mayhem.
Donald Clarke - Irish Times
What we have here is a blockbuster with brains, and explicit references to the Normandy landings of the Second World War are both knowing and well done.
David Edwards - Daily Mirror [UK]
The idea of history repeating itself is already writ large, here, but what isn't so familiar is the casting of Tom Cruise as a coward.
Stella Papamichael - Digital Spy
A smarter-than-expected script turns this noisy sci-fi action movie into something remarkably entertaining.
Rich Cline - Contactmusic.com
Um filme intrigante com boas sequencias de acao, mas que desaponta no terceiro ato.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
Earns the right to be Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers with a clever story that uses the narrative device in new ways.
Fred Topel - CraveOnline
A witty, clever, character-driven bit of science fiction wonderfulness, full of suspense, surprise, tension, and an unexpected poignancy.
MaryAnn Johanson - Flick Filosopher
Thanks to brisk direction from Doug Liman and some clever plotting, said repetition never becomes predictable.
Chris Tilly - IGN Movies
This summer blockbuster is almost ready to conquer the world. But not quite.
Charlotte O'Sullivan - This is London
At its best, Edge Of Tomorrow is a cross between Groundhog Day and Saving Private Ryan, even enjoying a little of the former's humour and the latter's intensity.
Dave Bradley - SFX Magazine
Thank heavens ... for the time-loop gimmick, which sustains a full hour of screen time with enough variations on its gambit to hook you in.
Tim Robey - Daily Telegraph
Cruise and Blunt are both superb, the action sequences are genuinely thrilling and the effects work is impressive throughout.
Matthew Turner - The List
It's taut, twisted and blackly funny in ways that only movies in which Tom Cruise gets crushed under the wheel of a truck can be.
Ali Gray - TheShiznit.co.uk
It is a pretty exciting, Twilight Zone-style premise that Bourne Identity director Doug Liman introduces with brisk efficiency and sustains through twists and turns that are often ingenious.
Allan Hunter - Daily Express
High concept action flicks largely live or die by the third act denouement (something that killed off Liman's last blockbuster effort Jumper). No such problems here.
Rich Phippen - Sky Movies
Liman handles his high concept conceit with some particularly dynamic visual touches, while Cruise and Blunt bring energy to their roles.
Josh Slater-Williams - The Skinny
Tom Cruise plays a callow, bumptious twerp in early scenes of the sci-fi adventure fantasy Edge of Tomorrow. He is very good: let's be nice and call it a stretch.
Nigel Andrews - Financial Times
An audacious concept, superbly executed, this grand scale sci-fi thriller will knock your socks off, combining knee-knocking tension with exhilarating action and a sense of humour.
Louise Keller - Urban Cinefile
It's "Aliens" meets "Groundhog Day" meets "Starship Troopers" meets "Source Code", and each of those films' best traits are expertly deployed into "Edge of Tomorrow".
Kristian Harloff - Schmoes Know
A fresh premise, engaging chemistry and incredible sci-fi action make it the surprise movie of the summer.
Mark Ellis - Schmoes Know
It's a blockbuster with brains, and when it's over, you might find yourself in a time loop of your own -- one where you can't wait to see it over and over again.
Scott A. Mantz - Access Hollywood
A big, bright, loud and occasionally smart entertainment, and well worth seeing once - although not, perhaps, every day for the rest of your life.
Stephen Whitty - Newark Star-Ledger
Edge of Tomorrow leaps onto the summer-movie playing field with ferocious tenacity, expertly balancing large-scale action with humor, tension, courage and the kind of flawed heroes you really grow to invest in.
Erik Davis - Movies.com
A playful and frantic science-fiction twister which mimics the best (Aliens, The Matrix, Groundhog Day) while offering something fresh and - most importantly - thrilling.
Dan Jolin - Empire Magazine
Is it possible we owe Tom Cruise a collective apology?
Jim Slotek - Jam! Movies
There's imagination, spectacle and thrills to spare. There's a freshness here too that comes not only from the structure, but from Edge Of Tomorrow being a shiny new property in this cyclical age of sequels, prequels and spin-offs
Jamie Graham - Total Film
Witty, clever, thrilling - it could easily turn out to be the blockbuster of the year.
Andy Lea - Daily Star
A nicely assembled sci-fi film that is breezily exciting if never intellectually challenging.
Mark Adams - Screen International
Edge of Tomorrow remains as an unadulterated, captivating thriller, which revels in being such unreservedly good fun.
Stefan Pape - HeyUGuys
This, ladies and gentleman, is what we call a summer blockbuster.
Jack Giroux - Film School Rejects
"It's a razzle-dazzle triumph, and one we can't wait to experience again and again and again..."
