EDGE OF TOMORROW REVIEW...22:46:00
'Edge of Tomorrow' is an action film with a bad was female lead and a weak Tom Cruise. Better than expected the film will definitely be one of this summer’s top action films.
Although Cruise is funny in his many do over days, it is definitely Blunt who has worked her bum off in this film to make it as good as it is. As well it is also her no nonsense script that makes the film comical. For example on the film Cruise plays his normal need to be a hero self, yet he does it in a likeable way because of Blunt’s acting.
And it was interesting to see her placed into the action world, as many would not see her being able to do so, however her talents are never ending and I hope that we see her in more roles like this, because they suit her well.
Another quality that has been portrayed exceptionally well is the special effects. From the different destroyed countries to the underwater key ending, every detail has been delicately produced in a way that makes it believable. Especially the scenes within Paris, as it seemed like everything we were seeing was real and I was about to get a newsflash about it. Oh and talking of newsflashes, the incredible detail that was placed into the opening featuring the newsflashes, were also fantastic.
As for the soundtrack, there wasn't much to it until the end of the film, however I think the lack of it added to the appeal of the film, because you were not in the know about what was going to happen to the characters on screen.
Overall I think the film will be a smash hit this summer and while we hit the edge of tomorrow, I want to hit the edge of the film with this rating…
